    The perfect accommodations”

    I have never stayed anywhere that treated me as well as Seikoro. From the moment of arrival to the moment of departure, the staff anticipated our needs and schedule and were highly accommodating. I had no idea about the finer points of staying at a ryokan, having never visited Japan before. I felt truly welcomed by the atmosphere of the place and the hospitality of our hosts. The room itself was astounding - beautiful, tranquil, spacious, and eminently comfortable. Our tatami-floored garden view room included a private bath with a wooden tub (though the public bath was wonderful as well). Even the decorations suited the late winter season and enhanced the elegant atmosphere of the room. After each day of walking around Kyoto in the cold and snow, nothing was better than knowing that the room at Seikoro was waiting. As wonderful as the staff and the room were, the food may have been the highest point of the stay. I am not sure I have ever had a better meal in my life than I did at Seikoro. It was beautifully presented and perfectly made. Each course was a revelation to me about the delicacy and range of Kyoto-style food. Watching the snow drift lightly down onto a spray of bright pink plum blossoms in the the garden on our last morning, I know I will often think of Seikoro on February mornings when the west wind blows across the Pacific.

    Fantastic Ryokan Style Hotel”

    Traditional japanese ryokan hotel with a very cozy vibe. The room is quite large with amenities and facilities are completely provided. Staffs are very friendly and we have personal assistant who is very lovely. We reserved dinner courses for 2 which are very good of taste, decoration and portion of food. One a bit downside is that you will need a taxi to go the hotel and there is no other way, also waliking is a bit too far.

    Authentic high class Ryokan”

    Traditional, fantastic service, beautiful room.

    For anyone wanting to experience the way a Ryokan would have been along the Tokaido in the days of the Shogun please stay at Seikoro. The service is magnificent, friendly and speaks English. The room is traditional except for the free wifi and spacious. Having your own Japanese bathroom in your room is a luxury. There is also a public bath too that should be tried. This wonderful haven is not cheap be warned, breakfast for two was over 5000 yen, however the price is worth the experience. Close to train stations, Gion, convenience stores, a coin laundry and wonderful restaurants and sights along the river that Kyoto holds so dear. As a long time traveller and former resident of Japan I can't recommend Seikoro enough for those wanting to capture an era of Japan that most will never see.
