YUZUYA RYOKAN

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on November 19, 2006

Great staff and beautiful ryokan! It's only a year old but feels as if it's been there for years. It's built on a little cranny on a hill right in the heart of Gion, Kyoto. Next to a shrine, or was it a temple? Anyways, it's a great starting point for a scenic walk thru the old streets of Kyoto to the big Kyomizu Temple as the final destination. The breakfast and dinner were amazing presentations and delicious!! What was nice is the staff took time to explain each course (7 courses total and a 2 course dessert!) Made from local veggies in season, fish and meat....it was a memorable experience enjoying the meals besides seeing the sights of the city. All meals incorporate Yuzu (a type of lemon) in the dishes, very tasty! Even the soap in the bathrooms is lemon scented. My only complaint was that the dining room could have used some quiet koto music to set the mood. The dining room overlooks a priavte waterfall that masks the sounds of the city. Cleverly hidden from view, you feel as if you are in a mountain resort. If you strain to look, you'll realize you are bellow a parking lot!

Unique Quality: The staff speaks English and are top notch.
