Great ryokan for family - public Onsen, kids are welcome, Kaiseki dinner is a fantastic experience, staff is attentive and made us feel welcome. Room was very warm despite that it was quite cold outside. We would definitely recommend this ryokan.
We loved this hotel very much. The way they treated the guests were superb and thoughtful. Very comfy and traditional Japanese ryokan style room. They remember we have breakfast ready on the first morning and gently knocked on our door to remind us the breakfast...More

This was our first visit to a Ryokan. It was super convenient to the train station. Room was well appointed. Included meals were amazing - they were delicious and huge selection. The kids meals were very diverse as well. Quiet and comfortable.
My husband and I stayed here for a week during our recent trip to Kyoto.

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and
with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.
