It is a historical place once belonging to a member from the Imperial family. The current members try to uphold some of the old traditions. Our room overlooked the garden as was very spacious. Our first breakfast was served in a sitting room upstairs which was private. The second morning in a beautiful room overlooking their beautiful garden. Beautiful service and delicious food Japanese one morning and Continental the next. A gorgeous Ryokan experience.

Expensive and touristy
We had a nice stay at this ryokan, but it was extremely "touristy" as opposed to genuine. Service was good and food was ok but nothing was excellent. The house is beautiful and in a great spot for visiting some nice temples and the philosophers walk along the small river branch. Nice for couples that the bath is private and thus can be gender shared. Everything very clean. However, in total, this was extraordinarily priced (both the lodging and the food) for what it was.

Magical and Historic
Yoshida sanso is a magical place and the proprietors are wonderful people. Also, you can walk to the Philosophers Path which is one of the most beautiful walks in Kyoto. The food was incredible, I highly recommend trying their dinner and breakfast, though we only had the breakfast. Be sure to arrive on time to allow yourself plenty of time to experience and enjoy the property.
