It was super clean and cozy place. I really enjoyed my time in ryokan. It was excellent Japanese experience.
The public bath was fantastic. There is also a private, albeit communal, shower room if you don't feel confident to try the bath.
Busy location meant people could be quite loud outside at late hours. Fortunately didn't affect my sleep as they had stopped by then.
The Japanese style was a good experience
They lock you into the hotel 11PM - 6AM which made it difficult for our friend to catch her flight on time! (As they unapologetically refused to refund or allow us to leave earlier).
The 11pm curfew was a real constraint.
The best guest house I've stayed during my trip to Japan. The staff is super helpful and friendly. Big room provided with plenty of space available. The TV inside the room also provided. The pillow is tremendously good and the bed is comfortable. Location is excellent, just 8minutes walk from Kyoto Station
With a stay at Nihonkan in Kyoto (Central Kyoto), you'll be within a 5-minute walk of Kyoto Tower and Higashi Honganji Temple. Featured amenities include luggage storage, laundry facilities, and microwave in a common area.
