Our room at Ryokan Yamazaki, Kyoto
www.ryokan-yamazaki.co.jp/ This place was a fantastic place to stay. It is located in the hills above Kyoto and is about 35 minutes by bus from downtown. It was very affordable, clean, comfy and the owner and his family treated us to top notch service. If you're in Kyoto and need a peaceful place to stay this is your best bet.
