We stayed here 1 night during our Japan trip an didn't regret it! Great location directly at the river. Very good service, great dinner. Highly recommended.

The garden view was a little uninspiring. The mountains and river in the area are so beautiful, we wished we would have requested that instead.
It's very hard to single out one thing to say was the best. The level of service, the outdoor onsen, the food. We wished we would have booked 2 nights instead of one to really have the time to enjoy the luxuries of the ryokan as well as all the delightful sights of the small town.

It would be better if the dinner menu could be better explained in English or with an English menu on the side.
The hotel is situated right next to the river and only 5 minutes away from the main tourist center. Everything was execellent from services, food, futon beds to hot spring. Hotel also offers pick up and drop off services from JR Arashiyama station.

Fee charged for private onsen
Beautiful natural setting with impeccable service!! Kaiseki was unbelievably awesome...sometimes too pretty to consume, food with an artistic expression! Outdoor onsen was so serene buried by natural tranquility!!

Take about 15 min walk from JR station for check-in. Should request a pick-up service if you carry heavy luggage.
Overall is very good in service. Have a shuttle bus to JR station after check-out.

Could smell smoke along the passageway outside the room. The tatami bed was quite hard. Needed more cushioning...
Staff was so kind n genuine. Great view from the room.

This Ryokan was by far the best accommodation we had in our 2.5 weeks in Japan, inclusive of a 5 star in Tokyo. Location is 10/10 with all of Arashiyamas many attractions within walking distance. The service was absolutely impeccable and the staff were friendly, spoke very good English, and were always ready and willing to accommodate us. The dinner was delicious! One of the best we had in Japan. Dinner went on for 1.5hrs with each course meticulously prepared. The room was fantastic and really gave us a feeling of a traditional Japanese Ryokan. Even though we didn't get a river view, it was comfortable, large and we appreciated the little personal touches. Our private onsen in our room was so relaxing and you can also book the private outdoor onsen (with a view of the mountains!) for a very reasonable price. The service started as soon as we checked in and even continued after we left. I accidentally left my camera charger behind, sent them an email and was met with no hesitation to help. The charger was at my accommodation in Osaka the very next day. Stay here for a wonderful ryokan experience!

Nothing much, The futon tool some getting used to but by the second night it was fine.
Excellent service and staff - very attentive and polite. Thoughtfully provided amenities. Beautiful building and garden, all well maintained. Good control of noise and high degree of privacy. Spacious room. Breakfast and dinner were both of a high standard. Selection of sleepwear and loungewear for us to use.

My wife and I enjoyed an excellent ryokan kaiseki experience here two nights ago. Definitely worth every penny. I've never known the meaning of relaxation until we experienced this type of treatment.

Check-in time is late (4pm) and check-out time is quite early (10am).
Huge room with private facilities. Staff was very polite and helpful despite limited English. Food was amazing.
