Overall: 12/10! Food: superb, cleanliness: absolutely spotless, hospitality: the best I have ever experienced, views: breathtaking. The accessibility going up the hill can be a bit rough but there are taxis that can take you up and drop you off only a few steps from the doors. We arrived from downtown Kyoto and had no trouble finding where we needed to go. There are shops and temples all around the Ryokan (all within a ten minute walk), stunning trees and flowers along the way. We were not afraid to try out the sleepwear and a traditional Yukata for dinners, which is a big thing considering we are picky about our clothing. We were lucky enough to have a room the had it's own Onsen and garden. We spent a lot of our time drinking tea and eating sweets by the garden, spending quiet and peaceful time with each other and taking care of our bodies with "our vacation from our vacation". I have a food allergy and every meal we shared at this beautiful location was specifically catered towards my needs; I had no fear that there was cross-contamination or something was not translated properly. We felt at home the minute we walked in. We were respected and gracefully shown how everything in the Ryokan worked. This was our favorite part of our whole trip. Beautifull view of not only the country side but of the Japanese culture as well.
We would come back to Japan just to stay in this Ryokan again.
