Property with No hot spring

There is no hot spring (onsen) provided by this property. It’s just ordinary hot spa (bath) provided. I plan to enjoy hot spring rather than hot spa of which I can easily take one in any gymnasium room. I am disappointed although with friendly staff in the property. The meal provided is acceptable.

Everything was amazing, from the service before we even walked through the door! Love the staff here, they even offered to drive us to the convenience store to pick up snacks for us, super sweet. The view is very beautiful, definitely reserve a private bathtub!

Beautiful ryokan

Beautiful stay with a private outdoor onsen with river views, beautiful dinner and breakfast. Gorgeous views from the room. Just perfect.

It's our second stay in two years. This time, we stayed in the main building. It did not seem full as there were about 5 tables occupied for meals in the dining hall. The last time, we stayed at the Annex which is in a ravine next to a river. The Annex was more secluded and tucked away, with private in-room onsen. The main building is more accessible and fronts the main road. The staff were courteous and attentive. The food was average. The shared onsen in the main building was very small, enough for one person. Overall, it was a pleasant relaxing stay in the hills above Arashiyama and not very far from Kyoto.

Favorite part of our trip to Japan

My wife and I stayed at Momiji-ya Ryokan for 2 nights, and had a fantastic time. The service was impeccable, the rooms were clean and spacious (although foreign western guests may still find the rooms smaller than expected), and the food was amazing. The staff were incredibly kind and accommodating to us, even though we did not speak much Japanese. I can't recommend this ryokan highly enough.

Pros: The beautiful location. The impeccable service. The amazing food.

Cons: Nothing comes to mind.

Location: Beautiful location in Takao with nearby shrines and temples.
