Kyoto is een voormalige hoofdstad van Japan, een bijzonder veelzijdige en gezellige stad met veel bezienswaardigheden. Het hoofdstation van Kyoto, waar de Shinkansen-treinen arriveren, ligt centraal in de stad en wordt omringd door winkels, restaurants en accommodaties. Net als Tokyo biedt ook Kyoto een behoorlijk uitgebreid metronetwerk, waarmee u gemakkelijk door de stad kunt reizen.
We had a lovely stay in Yoshi-ima. We were well fed, expertly looked after, and got to see the heart of Gion around our living quarters. Our kids enjoyed the tea room experience and thought it was great fun sleeping on futons.
Everything from the welcome is very traditionally Japanese. We were served green tea in our room, were dressed in yukata before dinner. Dinner was 7 courses of delicious little dishes. One ciriticism â€“ there was very little time between courses and therefore felt a bit rushed. We slept in a futon on tatami matting â€“ surprisingly comfortable. English or Japanese breakfast available and was served in our room â€“ limited choice but fine. Staff spoke almost no English but were very friendly and helpful. Great taste of old Japan.
"Charming and Authentic"
My husband and I stayed at this charming inn, set in the heart of the Geisha district. While it was a little difficult to find, it was conveniently located. We loved it. It was very traditional in appearance with a lovely tea house where we attended a tea ceremony. Our breakfast and dinner were served on a low table in our room and were delicious. Each night it was a different menu. The staff were very gracious and helpful and made our stay very pleasant. I would highly recommend Gion Yoshi-ima.
"Delicious food, and friendly staff"
First and foremost, if you have any issue with sleeping on a traditional futon on the tatami flooring then this ryokan is not for you. I've read a few reviews on various websites where people were surprised when it came to settling in for the night. If you are unfamiliar with ryokans I would suggest you do some research before making a reservation. With that being said, my husband and I stayed at Yoshi-Ima in December for our honeymoon. We both wanted to experience a traditional ryokan and we were not disappointed. We arrived in Kyoto before the check-in time, but we were allowed to leave our luggage and explore the city. The ryokan is located on a quiet street near the main shopping zone and very close to Yasaka Shrine. When entering the ryokan you must remove your shoes and wear the slippers they provide. This is a required action. By removing your shoes you keep the ryokan cleaner. The staff will keep your shoes behind the front desk. When you enter your room you will need to remove your slippers, and there is a special pair of slippers used for the bathroom. I should note that in Japan it is considered very embarrassing to wear the bathroom shoes outside of the bathroom, so make sure to wear the correct slippers when moving around the ryokan. Also I should note that the hallways in the ryokan are open to the outside, so depending on when you visit the hallways might be a bit cold. We stayed in room 104. From what I was told 104 is the biggest room in the ryokan. A maid will accompany you to your room and make sure everything is to your liking. She/He will ask when you'd like your dinner and breakfast, and she/he will serve you tea and then you'll be left to your own devices. When we visited the ryokan it was in December, the weather was cold outside but the inside of our room was nice and warm. The tatami mat flooring was also warm to our feet. The toilet is located on the outside of the room and it was a little chilly in the middle of the night, but thank God for heated toilet seats ;) Room 104 has a beautiful view of the inner garden, it was so lovely eating breakfast and enjoying the relaxing scenery. You will not go hungry while staying at Yoshi-Ima. After dinner every night my husband and I went to sleep full and happy. I don't recall the names of what was served but it consisted of veggies, miso soup, white rice, and the main course. If you enjoy food you will be happy. Typically the futon beds are only put out when its bedtime (the maid will place them out right after dinner) but if you are tired just ask the staff. The maids normally do everything for you because that's part of the tradition. The futon was very comfortable and warm, and the buckwheat pillow was nice too. In the morning the maid wakes you for breakfast (as I wrote earlier you pick the time), and they put away the futons. You have a choice between a Western breakfast and Japanese breakfast, we chose the Japanese breakfast and it was very yummy (again I don't recall the names of the dishes). We only stayed two nights and I did not use the shower at the ryokan. It is a traditional wooden tub with a shower. I regretfully didn't get to use the on site onsen. I wish I would have made time. The ryokan also offers a tea ceremony, we did not partake but I again regret not doing so. Overall we had a wonderful time, and it made me sad to leave. The staff was super friendly. I forgot to mention that the ryokan has WIFI.
"Gion Yoshiima: reasons for poor rating"
Nice inner japanese garden and great location in the center of Kyoto. But much too expensive considering the very ordinary quality of the meals and service and the very poor condition of the bath room (shabby unclean floor and walls, bath tub = OK). Lack of overall maintenance in this otherwise originally typical japanese house.
