The proprietor of this ryokan was lovely, very welcoming and accomodating, and a pleasure to deal with, despite our communication barriers. Fantastic location in Gion, close to temples and beautiful streets dotted with quaint inns, taverns and gift shops. Room itself was spread over several rooms, with a separate room for sleeping, and one for eating. Had a lovely view over the garden. Bathroom great with traditional wooden bathtub which was a highlight. Immaculately clean. Also air-conditioned which was welcomed given the humidity and heat. The kaseiki meal was interesting, certainly challenged my conservative Western palate, and was nice having the different foods explained. Certainly enjoyed being able to eat in my own room as I was traveling alone at this stage. The only drawback, not having anywhere to really relax after a long day walking and sight-seeing. I felt the futon was great for sleeping but not so good if you wanted to spend an hour reading or watching tv. Nonetheless, an authentic experience that I will always remember and glad to have undertaken. Price is a little on the expensive side, but felt it was worth it given the personal attention, food, and overall ambience..
