The property is a good Ryokan experience. The hosts were respectful and provide information on how to get through to the tourist spots. The place is well maintained and i would suggest to try the private bath which is conveniently located in the property for free. The Con here would be the distance from the Kyoto station. Make sure to take the Central Exit after alighting from Shinkansen. There are a few easy to follow rules that you are required to follow in this property.

Service was excellent, and hosts were very thoughtful and could speak english. We received a nice souvenir from them when checking out. They had a list of recommended restaurants and itinerary in the room which was helpful. The room was comfortable and clean, and we enjoyed the private bath which was free to book.
