    We couldn't have asked for a better experience at Motonago. The rooms were beautiful, the location was perfect, and the service was superb. The food was also amazing! Staying at Motonago was the highlight of our honeymoon.

    Lovely place and employees. You should not expect extreme luxury, instead expect an authentic ryokan experience with utmost attention to detail. We loved our stay and it made Kyoto feel even more special.
