Sensational Seizanso
What a beautiful experience for our kids! Our huge tatami rooms were overlooking fully blooming cherry blossom trees over the Uji River. Loved everything about this Ryokan especially the wonderful owner Okawa-San and his staff. Thank you for a most memorable stay .

Disappointed stay
Beautiful scenery, close to 平等園, hotel is located along the river.
The hotel lobby is pretty good and looks very calm, but the hotel is quite old, some wall papers in rooms are teared off, air conditioning is not working well and we needed to ask for a electric fan to lower down the room temperature. We won't stay again although the staff are very polite and helpful.
