Name of ryokan in Arashiyama? 2012/12/19 09:07
I'm trying to find out the name of this ryokan in Arashiyama that you have to take a boat up the river to get to. I remember reading an article about it but the name escapes me. The manager of the ryokan has been successful in remodeling other properties in Japan to suit western tastes while still having japanese touches.

It's gotta be Hoshinoya Kyoto. Here's their website:

Ah yes, that is the place. Thank you for your quick response. Has anyone stayed there? If so, how was it?

I have not stayed there myself, but it looks nice and I'm going to consider it for the future. The only thing I find disappointing is that they do not have any pictures of their baths (although that is not too surprising considering its Kyoto). I just wouldn't go in with expectations of anything but ordinary bathing facilities.
