We stayed in 4 different ryokans during our trip to Japan, different price categories, and Kankaso was by far the best! It is a bit more expensive than average, but the value you get is amazing. First of all, it is located close to all the Nara sites, while preserving tranquility in its garden. Second, the garden and the buillding, including the room is as traditional as it gets and beautiful. It is managed by a an elderly couple - they are very friendly and apparently the husband can cook - and HOW! We had our most amazing kaiseki meal of the whole trip and we did eat excellent during our trip in general. The dinner was served in our room, which is a very exclusive tradition and a rarity these days. Just when we thought it couldn't get any better, in the morning we were invited into a beautiful room where an unbelievable traditional Japanese breakfast spread was served.... no words.... If you only had one night to spend at a ryokan, I say make it Kankaso.
