Kyoto's dine - kaiseki is especial seasonal feast of senses One of the most exciting things to stay at a ryokan, or Japanese country inn, is to eat traditional Japanese cuisine using seasonal ingredients harvested from nature, such as mountain vegetables and Tanba beef in spring, Kyo-vegetables (vegetables used in Kyoto's local cuisine) and freshwater fish in summer, mushrooms and local sake (rice wine) in autumn, as well as oceanic fish and botan-nabe (pot-style dish) with boar meat and lots of local winter vegetables in winter.

It is a good surprise to know that there was such a wonderful ryokan so close. What I am happy about it most was that I could feel comfortable there for some reason and I could relax. It was a very comfortable room where you can see green leaves of maple trees from the window on the 3rd floor. The whole ryokan was filled with the comfortable atmosphere. It can be said about the humble yet pretty flowers arranged, sophisticated furniture, and also the spacy and relaxing allocation of chairs in the dining room and the library. Ultimately nice taste with chairs from an old theater(?) and something like Goemon-buro (Goemon bath) (?) excellently arranged . I even take off my hat of course, their cleaning is perfect. The meals were tasty both in the morning and evening. I could feel the full flavor of the ingredients as they were cooked simple to keep the taste of Kyoto-grown vegetables. It was a nice menu for women. The bath was good, too. There was an utase-bath, stream of water cascading, it hits the right spot of my shoulders and it felt soooo good! The open-air bath was big and it was available for the whole night. One disappointment was that I could only use the reserved open-air bath on the day of check-in. It was a shame because if it was possible to take the bath the following morning as well, I would have definitely tried (that is why 4 stars only for the bath). I relaxed until the check-out time which was 11 o'clock. The last shuttle bus was quite packed seemingly it was the case of other guests, too. + More

Once I stayed at a guestroom in Honami and it was so quiet and calm that I wanted to stay at the inn again. This time, there were no vacant rooms due to the summer vacation, so we visited newly opened HAKONEYAMA terrace. Perhaps it is because the difference of the price, but the structure of guestroom is not comfortable to use. The guestroom is located between the lavatory, the bathroom and toilet and in addition, I had a headache due to the peculiar, strong smell of paint, wall paper or something like that, although it would have been acceptable, if it were a characteristic smell of a new building. The concierge service of every staffs was wonderful, but it was pity that there were no great facilities and the fool was not very good. + More

This summer, I stayed here again with my love. We were talking and, "Well, let's go to Sumiya, shall we?" Simple like that. This time we enjoyed a new guest room. It had a pleasant open air hot-spring. But depending on where you stand, we could see the window of other rooms, so my company was saying, "That's a little..." Please consider this. But I always think "the food is fantastic", and get excited about it. The way they grill the salmon with salt is perfect. We ate up the two of them, including the head. And the bowl dishes always have a deep taste. Chef, your always give me joy. Thank you. We were talking on our drive back from the visit. "Let's go back again. " Next time, we would like to visit at year end to enjoy the open air hot spring. It became another good memory. Thank you very much. + More

I am not 100% satisfied. I stay there a couple of times a year but am getting dissatisfied with the food. As a special dish for this season, young sweetfish and sea eels were served, but both didn't taste not that good. The buying cost of sea eels should be high due to its best season, however, it was not fatty enough and also dry. Sea eels of this season in Kyoto is in season and expensive, but the taste is not that good. I wished I were served something other than sea eels. The sweetfish dish was no longer hot when delivered to my table. I was disappointed that I was unable to enjoy "hot, hot, hot" food in my mouth as usual, as it seemed taking a while after being cooked. It is a minor thing but the door of the public bath was so heavy (rigid) that I had difficulties to open and close it with my stiff shoulder. I wonder the door was a bit off its rail. + More

I was pleased that I stayed on August 7-8. Since it was my husband's birthday, I was given a present for him, or they treated us in spite of arriving a little early, the staff served warmly and very kindly, I appreciate it so much. However, it was regrettable that my feet in horigotatsu in the room in the early morning I left were very itchy. The part of touching bare feet sitting on my heels on the cushion directly, concentrated on the insteps of my feet and shins, so it might be ticks, but it was before checkout, therefore I left without reporting. As time passed on, feeling a fever, swelling and the stronger core, so I worried about it after all, at that point in time I contacted them. I got more than ten bites on them. Since they saw off pleasantly till the last day, I feel that it was regrettable. + More

I used the private onsen, but it felt narrow as there was a huge rock in the middle. I wished there were 2 chairs in the washing place. It was rather hot, so there should be a fan in the dressing room. The onsen felt good and made my skin smooth. Even the service staff were smiling when serving us throughout the stay, and I had a relaxing time. The view of the mountain outside the window in our room was good, but I don't feel comfortable at the open air bath as there was a highway right outside. Meal was great. I gave it 4 points for satisfaction as our schedule was tight and I regretted not allocating a little more time to relax. + More

It was distant from Kyoto Station, but I think that was worth it. At night it was cool because it was located in the mountains and the sound of Higurashi cicadas had its own beauty. The food was also delicious and I was very satisfied. But there was nothing around the inn, so it would be better if you bought something at a convenience store before going there. + More

My husband and I stayed. An atmosphere of the inn is very calm, and it is comforting to be able to see greens and a stream from the window. The room is really clean, and I could relax. I could use the hot spring bath anytime I wanted to since it is a room with one. I also used the big public bath, but the open-air bath is so open that you could see greens. As for the dish, I felt each one was made with a delicate care. My husband had alcohol, and the sommelier chose the right alcohol drink which matches to a dish. Since I cannot drink alcohol, I had delicious grape juice for which they had red, white, and rose. Since I liked it very much, I bought some for souvenirs. I think it is the right inn to stay relaxed. Each season may show its own color, so I would like to visit the foliage season next. + More

We stayed as a couple for my husbands birthday. The tea cakes offered when we arrived was very good I could take a breather in peace. From our room window, I could see trees bright with greens, and by listening carefully, I could hear the birds chirping in the silence. The tatami at the floor is comfortable, and the nature sounds were soothing for both the mind and the body. I had meal at the dining. The seats on the river side has tastes and I recommend it. The foods, especially Kyoto vegetables were great, I enjoyed all. The attendant who brought the dishes has explained through, and I had a slow relaxing holiday. Thank you for considering about the things I don't like eating. With chance, I would like to visit again. Thank you very much. + More
