Kyoto Ryokan : Nasinoki, Matsui or Watazen?


Though I have been to Kyoto but yet to try a Ryokan stay.

I did some enquiry and found the above-mentioned ryokan are available for my day of stay, all of them seems quite okay in location with respect to Kyoto station as I am arriving from Kansai Airport.

Needed some advice on the choice or if you have any other suggestions.

Though I've never stayed there before, Matsui and Watazen are located in the same district (very convenient for shopping and dining)and they are rather big hotel-type ryokans.

Nashinoki, on the other hand, is located in the college town (near Doshisya University) and a small family-run inn.

If you want to eat out or shop in the evening, one of the 1st two would fit you. If you look for homey atomosphere, Nashinoki would be your choice.
