We've been to Kyoto several times prior and liked this ryokan the best. Staff was friendly, very helpful (tried many, many restaurants to get us a birthday dinner reservation) and full of ideas for things to do. At their suggestion and our fortunate timing, we...More

We arrived and were treated like family. It was so welcoming and comfortable in the dining and lobby area. The staff were quick to smile and accommodate our needs. I would highly recommend this Ryokan.
Clean, good breakfast (choose English or Japanese), friendly staff. Every day clean towels and a cleaned up room. There is a bycycle rent at 10 minutes walk. I really recommend to rent a bike for a couple of days! Easy to travel with...More
This Ryoken was in a quiet interesting neighborhood with a great location for sight seeing! It is very close to a Lawson convenience store. Be sure to get out first thing to get snacks and water for your fridge. We had the tradional futon bed....More

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.
As far as we know, there is no constant desk service at night, though I think there's usually someone nearby. We were given a key to get in the front door after ?10 or 11 p.m. It is best you make arrangement with the host... More
As far as we know, there is no constant desk service at night, though I think there's usually someone nearby. We were given a key to get in the front door after ?10 or 11 p.m. It is best you make arrangement with the host as to when (even roughly) you plan to get in. They are very nice people to deal with.

My wife and I walked from Kyoto Station to the ryokan with luggage - big rolling suitcases. It wasn't too bad, and took maybe 15 to 20 minutes (we got a little lost). At the end of our stay, we took the bus to the station with our luggage. It was much quicker, of course - only a couple of stops. However, if the bus is crowded, it's difficult to get the luggage on. The main bus stop for the ryokan (Nishi Honganji) is about a minute's walk away. We didn't go to Gion during our stay in Kyoto, so I don't know about that.
