First ryokan experience
his was our first time staying in a ryokan. We weren’t too sure what to expect except for that we knew it’ll be very basic. That’s exactly what a ryokan is, very simplified traditional style amenities; cushion on ground to sleep on with traditional sliding doors. There was a private bathroom and toilet for the room and very convenient location near nishiki market and local restaurants and local subway and train stations.

Good value for money Ryokan experience
My husband and I wanted to try the Ryokan experience and Hirashin seemed to have the best value for money. The rooms are big and futons are layed out on the floor. The staff is great and very helpful but the language barrier is very present sometimes as it is normal in Japan. Location is great for sightseeing. It was overall a good experience but would point out the following: it was very warm in our room, we could not get the AC to work properly and would also recommend trying out breakfast at least once but be advised it is completely "japanese", no bacon eggs or toasts :) It was worth it for the experience.
