You should stay here, wear the robe (google on how to wear it), and even try the public bath. It is an wonderfully awkward experience. The 2.5 hour meal was wonderful, the presentation of each one was at times stunning and intimidating but worth it.
In 2013 I wasn't in Kyoto for very long, but this single meal was one of the major highlights of my solo trip to Japan. I had just hiked back down from getting lost in the trails of the Shinto Shrine and accidentally stumbled upon...More
Can't recommend this highly enough. The ryokan itself is absolutely beautiful, really traditional Japanese house with separate onsen baths for male and female guests. The service we received was wonderful, the breakfast was the best we had in Japan. We stayed one night which was...More
I absolutely loved my stay at Yuzuya and it was my favourite accommodation during my month-long travel.
The ryokan is very centrally located and within walking distances to key temples, metro station and abundance of buses and taxi stands across the road that can take...More
Yuzuya is accessed from a small black gate next to the Yasaka shrine. You step from a busy road into a world of tranquility. The attention to detail is superb, as is the service. Both breakfast and dinner are of a very high standard.

Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko" in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners, Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the streets on their way to and from work, where they fan dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets
glow with lanterns along the river, where weeping willows catch the starlight and the air is warmed with conversation. Groups pass through to populate the restaurants and bars along the riverfront, but Gion still manages to be a mostly quiet district, due in large part to limited automotive traffic through many of its streets. Gion is a wonderful place to indulge in Kyoto's local and customary cuisines, and is best enjoyed after dark.
