My husband and I treated ourselves to a one night stay at Nishiyama Ryokan at the end of our trip to Kyoto and were so glad we did! All the staff we met were very friendly and those on the front desk spoke excellent English which made check-in/out very straightforward. We stayed in a traditional Japanese room which was spotlessly clean and made for a really comfortable nights sleep on futons. Don’t miss trying the public baths which were empty when we visited and have a relaxing view out onto a pretty garden and waterfall. We loved that the ryokan arranged extra events for guests (such as a lovely traditional tea ceremony on check-out) – look out for posters in the reception area about these when you arrive. The kitchen was closed on the day we stayed so we aren’t able to comment on the food (a good excuse for us to come back!) Thank you for your hospitality.
