Really enjoyed our stay at this traditional ryokan! First off, the staff is incredibly friendly - from the minute you check in they’re super welcoming! Has a mom and pop feel to the place. Every day as we left to explore the city, an older lady would come out and greet us and give us hand warmers to ensure we would stay warm (we visited Kyoto in January). How sweet is that! The place is incredibly clean and tidy. Loved how traditional and minimalist our room felt. The onsen was the cherry on top. They have a small onsen and a larger one with views of a garden (men and women switch off every day between the two to ensure equal access). 5 min walking distance to Kyoto station and right across from a cool looking shrine. Would absolutely stay here again if we came back to Kyoto!
