We booked at this hotel when everything else in Kyoto was either sold out or ridiculously expensive (it was cherry blossom season). And we're so glad that we did. The hotel is accessible from the JR local line from downtown Kyoto (take about 20 minutes)...More
We just stay one night in this hotel but the dinner is out of expectation, it was very good and you will experience a Japanese royal style dinner. The food are as good as it looked. Just could say it was magnificent.

Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and
impressive vistas during the Hanami cherry blossom viewing season mean that it is busiest in warmer months, though also gorgeous in the fall, when the mountains and hills along the banks turn multi-colored. Historic and engaging, even the rail cars in Western Kyoto seek to exemplify its traditional nature and scenic beauty. Many people, including natives, come to visit the 1,200 rakan statues at the Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple, which is still in use as a religious site.
