Could have been better
The reception was great. However, I was expecting more traditional ambiance. Also, they lost my Disney umbrella on the day of my check out.

The room is spacious , sheets were fresh daily. My daughter and I especially loved the garden next to the restaurant. Took many pics. The kaiseki dinner was not memorable as we could not appreciate the ingredients used. They did not have an English menu. It didn’t feel special like any fine dining experience as the courses came too quickly before we could even complete one course , the next 2 appears. It would have been better if the waitress are taught the .

One Night Ryokan Stay
My friend and I were visiting Kyoto for the first time, and we really wanted to give the ryokan experience a try! We were blown away by how beautiful the property and room were. We booked a room with a private bath, and we had a beautiful view of the garden while we soaked. The water was continously heated so there was no need to add water mid-soak. The dinner experience was fantastic and full of variety. We loved our stay with Yachiyo very much and would love to visit again!

What a bath!
The ground floor garden view room with private bath was a once in a lifetime experience - the rooms were beautiful and the outlook lovely but the massive round wooden bath took first prize!
This bath could hold four people!!

Kyoto Nanzenji Ryokan Yachiyo was an extraordinary travel experience. The Ryokan's gardens and dining room are exquisite and the rooms are 100% ryokan with futons on a lovely tatami mat room. The staff could not be more welcoming or helpful -- and their English was excellent, unlike my Japanese. Lastly, the location is beautiful -- just down the street from the stunning Nanzen-ji Temple and gardens. Oh, and the restaurant was fabulous, too!

8/10 Very good

The service here is very good - everyone spoke English to a comfortable level and hospitality was very traditional. The room was a bit small for the price ($1200 for a studio) and felt that it faced a pretty busy road. Food was very good, but the dining room is big and there were lots of events happening across the property - felt like a large venue, not an intimate inn. Private in-room bath was very nice, though the water was honestly too hot to fully submerge in. If I only had access to the public bath, I would not have been as pleased with the experience. Overall, I would probably stay at a different ryokan next time in Kyoto due to preference for a more serene environment.
