It was my first time in Kyoto and staying at a ryokan, I wanted a authentic experience, and what i got was so much more!
I wanted to see Ryokan's reputation for top notch service first hand. The main difference that sets this place apart...More
My wife and I love the idea of onsens but prefer a private one. We shopped around for rooms with private onsens near Kyoto, and most are still very expensive (the cheapest one we found was about 23,000 Yen a night) which is a bit...More
This ryokan was recommended to us. We only managed to stay for one night, but boy was it spectacular! It wasn't the cheapest place to stay, and the room we had wasn't huge, but it was well positioned and well laid out. But the excellence...More
This is the second ryokan I have stayed at in Kyoto and it is absolutely an amazing experience I would recommend to everyone! We did a fair bit of research on ryokans and finally settled on Hanaikada for its balanced combination of price point, location,...More
Overall it's been a pleasant experience.
We booked a room with a private bath, which I highly recommend as you can take as many dips in your own private onsen as you like. The only catch is that rooms with private onsen doesn't have a...More
Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and
impressive vistas during the Hanami cherry blossom viewing season mean that it is busiest in warmer months, though also gorgeous in the fall, when the mountains and hills along the banks turn multi-colored. Historic and engaging, even the rail cars in Western Kyoto seek to exemplify its traditional nature and scenic beauty. Many people, including natives, come to visit the 1,200 rakan statues at the Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple, which is still in use as a religious site.

The general onsens are sex-segregated. Unless you are a same-sex couple, it would be difficult. There are private onsens to be booked, but I don't recall doing that so I can't tell you if they allow mixed sexes... More
The general onsens are sex-segregated. Unless you are a same-sex couple, it would be difficult. There are private onsens to be booked, but I don't recall doing that so I can't tell you if they allow mixed sexes to use them privately. My impression is that they would not, as most onsens in Japan that I have been to are sex-segregated.
Sorry I can't be more help.
