Just enjoyed a very comfortable and clean stay at Kikokuso.
The warm and friendly elderly couple that runs the ryokan are excellent hosts, from the moment you check in, until they see you off. The rooms with the bathrooms were full, so we stayed in one without. We had a sink/mirror space to wash up before bed, and it was fine. (The shared bathroom was close by at the bottom of the stairs.
Our room was peaceful, comfortable and clean. The room had a small flatscreen TV which we did not use, and sitting area for tea. Futon's on the ground, and the quiet sound of the man-made Japanese garden/stream outside of the rooms was very relaxing.
The traditional breakfast in the morning was served downstairs. We ate on the floor in a comfortable room that we had to our selves.
The "hot spring" bath is part of the ryokan experience. They have a private bath room that was easy to book ahead of time. The bath was not as large as i expected, but there was more than enough room for the both of us. Very very clean.
The ryokan is within easy walking distance to the main Kyoto Train Station.
NOTE: "ryokans" are traditional Japanese Bed & Breakfasts.
