Value
We proudly offer clean Japanese-style en-suite rooms for the price of youth hostel dormitories in Kyoto and we offer cheaper dormitories too. However, please do not expect luxury. We do not offer meals, daily-maid, etc. If you need more than the basics, we cannot meet your needs. On the other hand, we provide best value for money; such as great location, Japanese lounge, free kimono-try, wifi and information book.

Neighborhood
Shimogyo-ku
Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.

Fun to stay in a Japanese style ryokan near the transportation hubs of Kyoto. The staff was friendly and helpful, all as expected. The room was clean, the bathroom small but incredibly efficiently set up. We used the washer-dryer available, too. Recommended.

how to make online reservation?
The only contact details I have is the fax number: from outside Japan: +81-75-353-6968, and from inside Japan: 075-353-6968. Or you can book via a third party booking agency like tripadvisor, hotelscombined, agoda etc.
