At first, this is not a hotel you imagine. The accomodation is run by the temple Chishaku-in. You can stay in japanese style tatami-mat room. Wide enough for 2 people. Each room doesn't have private bathroom but there is a big common bathroom in the building. Their breakfast was pure japanese style and very nice. You can also ask them a dinner if you like (min.1500yen- not expensive). I asked vegetarian dinner and it was excellent. But the best thing in this inn is the buddism morning ceremony! You can join in the ceremony (about 60 mins) early morning with lots of monks and one of the monks will show you around the famous beautiful garden and you can enjoy precious pictures by Tohaku Hasegawa (National treasure!) before breakfast. It is the previledge only for the guest of this inn. I will definitely come back here again!! Their service is not like 5 star hotel of course, so you need to make your bed(futon) by yourself, but I promise you will get super unique stay.
