My wife and I spent two nights at the delightful Ryokufuso ryokan, The rooms are very well maintained and the sofa beds are quite comfortable. There is a very home-like feel to the place. The staff was very helpful with info about the city. The traditional Japanese breakfast was great (and I don’t even like seafood that much)! The location makes it very easy to get around Kyoto (there’s a nice little coffee placed a few blocks down, too). It’s quite easy to get there for the Kyoto JR station and a quick walk to the huge, inspiring Higashi Honganji temple. The onsen located in the ryokan was wonderful. A lovely way to wash off stress! Everyone at Ryokufuso was incredibly helpful and went above and beyond in making us comfortable and happy. A great place to center your trip to Kyoto!
Stayed at Ryokufuso, a traditional Japanese hotel near the World Heritage temple Nishi-honganji in Kyoto city.
