Small local ryokan, in outskirts of town
Posted Nov 13, 2016 on Hotels
Small little ryokan on the outskirts of town, very basic and barebones, but gets the job done. There are several reviews that say it's far, but it's a 15-20 minute walk down into Kyoto to a couple train lines, which was fun to do, in order to learn more about the locals / local life. There is a JR3 line bus that runs right by the property every 30 minutes, as well as a local bus "8" that utilizes similar stops as well, both are good options. I wish they did run later at night, as it was a scurry to get everything done in order to get the JR3 bus in the evening at 9-930. Still, was a decent place to stay, might stay right in town next time in order to get the full picture of nightlife.
