A great way to finish our tour of Japan

by dw1501 on 02 Nov 2016 (Couple Traveller)

Stayed here as part of a guided tour of Japan. This was an optional extra over and above the tour but really worth it. We had a traditional room with tatami maps and a low table, proper toilet and wet room as well as a small balcony (almost) overlooking the garden. We all got dressed up in traditional garb and had the banquet for dinner (it was really good .. I was nervous of the raw tuna, but it was actually fantastic) and while we ate the rooms were transformed into bedrooms with futons and du...

Lovely stay

by Simone_hammy_bunny on 01 Nov 2016 (Couple Traveller)

We stayed here for a night and had a traditional Japanese banquet dinner. The staff is helpful. Although they do not speak English very well, their service is good and it's a really enjoyable stay. The place does not serve alcohol but you are wlecome to bring a bottle to enjoy with the banquet meal. We also had a Japanese breakfast. It's lovely. The bed is comfortable - we had the traditional futon! There is wifi and television too.

Beautiful ryokan right in the heart of Kyoto

by Poguie on 06 Oct 2016 (Couple Traveller)

We stayed at Yoshi-ima for four nights in September. It was a little slice of luxury for us after a 6 day walk on the Kumano Kodo trail. We were so looking forward to being right in the centre of one of the most famous and atmospheric areas of Kyoto and Yoshi-ima was certainly everything that we had hoped for. We had dinner on our first night, served in our beautiful tatami room by one of the lovely staff members. This dinner was one of the highlights of our whole trip to Japan - a kaiseki mult...

This has the WOW factor to take you out of your comfort zone

by BiancaUK on 23 Aug 2016 (Family Traveller)

When I mean WOW, I mean different - amazing - surprising. I travelled with my mum and we felt like we were in Alice in Wonderland. Everything was small neat and petite and extremely beautiful. We felt like clumpy big westerners. The service was amazing and I would have to say that the meal was in my top 5 best meals ever tasted with about 30 dishes coming some of them too different to even know where to start. it was a big challenge for my mum ( in her 70's) to stay kneeling so when the staff l...

Japanese-style guest house with great service

by Helena L on 14 Jul 2016 (Family Traveller)

This Japanese-style guest house is conveniently located - within easy walking distance to subway station, bus stops, popular tourist spots in Kyoto and shops. The hosts are very polite and helpful, and the Japanese cuisine served at dinner and breakfast was delicious. The room was quite spacious and clean, but the bathroom facilities are a little old. Overall it was a comfortable place to stay.
