Just finished a 2-night stay here. Was guided to this place from a blog and wish I had read the reviews here first. The only thing going for this place is the excellent location. Otherwise, it's a ripoff for what you get. I paid 9000 per night inclusive of breakfast and dinner. The room was shabby and the bedding dated...

We stayed two nights at this ryokan and had a great time. Our room was large by the standards of other places we stayed and was very clean. I agree that in some places minor repairs were needed (those damn paper doors!) but overall there were no complaints about the facilities. The owner gave us a very warm greeting when...

I chose stayed at Ryori Ryokan Aiso after reading about it on a travel blog about Uji - they recommended it. What a mistake! It's a restaurant with a ryokan and I don't think it's very good at either. We paid Y7,800 per person (Y15,600 for the both of us) for a 4 tatami room - this included dinner and...

The ryokan has apparently been in the family for several generations and is part of a restaurant, store, and inn combination. The present owner isn't putting much money back into the inn. The bottom futons are not soft and the paper screens in many areas are torn and stained. But more importantly, the bathroom, tub area and sink were not...

We stayed for 2 nights and had 1 dinner and breakfast at Aiso. Uji is a really, really beautiful town famous for green tea. We went to the Uji Tea Festival which was great - followed the procession from the river up to the Temple. The main street of Uji is lovely, with small tea shops and it's a beautiful...

The owner has told us to pay about 7500 for a night for two persons. But when we are going to pay by the end of our stay, then he says that its 7500 per person. Which makes it double the price than we expected. The rooms are cold in november! The location is however great! right by the river....

We stayed for one night in Oct 09 at Aiso Ryokan for our trip to Uji. The owner knew very little written English and us thread-bare understanding of Japanese, but we managed to reserve via email (thanks to Google translate tool) a room for two with two meals (dinner + breakfast) @7350yen per person for the most basic menu, which...

Staying in Southern Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
