A very nice ryokan with traditional tatami flooring and futon bedding. Good Japanese decor and feel in a quiet street area close (walking distance) to the station. Our room (number 3) had a sloped roof and there were a few head bangs on the roof...More
The building was a quaint traditional building just what I had expected. It was clean and welcoming. The bathroom was very tiny for a larger person to fit. The ventilation from the windows was a little questionable as they had traditional paper instead of glass....More
Overall, just what my family and I hoped for and expected. Tatami floors, futon beds, small room(s) and a tiny bathroom. It's a nice traditional experience but pretty expensive for what you get. Staff didn't speak much or any English but luckily my Japanese is...More

Thank you for your stay and feedback.
Regarding the lock-out, we deeply apologize for this.
After our research, it seems that one staff forgot to take out the room key from the room after moving your stuff from the original room to the new room....More
The staff in charge of the front desk were extremely friendly and speaks good English. I think the owner owns a bunch of different ryokans within the block, and the front desk is in a different property. I walked from Kyoto Station (took about 15...More

We appreciate your stay and evaluation.
First of all, we apologize for the inconveniences you mentioned, isolated from the main front desk.

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.
