One of the best places you can stay.
What an awesome experience you will have here. Ok am I and her husband are so nice and helpful. Felt like part of the family. Whether it was laundry, calling a taxi, making a meal for us, it was all great. I can’t thank you enough for helping us out with the luggage forwarding and the bullet train schedule during the typhoon. We made it to Mt Fuji with your help. We will stay here again when in Kyoto.

Favourite place ever
I chose this Ryokan based on the reviews I had read - and I am so glad I did. From the moment I booked the excellent hospitality started with emails filled with information about local sights and logistics. We stayed for 5 wonderful nights and received amazing hospitality. Okami-san went out of her way to share the local culture and information and we really felt like we saw the best of Kyoto. From dressing us in yukata for our walk into town, to showing us how to make traditional Japanese food each morning - she did everything she could to make us enjoy the experience. We had 2 rooms downstairs which gave plenty of space and even though we shared a bathroom, I didn't ever see anyone else. Tea / coffee / soft drinks along with biscuits and chocolate are always available which made it seem like home! The Ryokan is close to the main sites and only a 15 minute walk to the centre of town. There is a bus stop 5 minutes walk away and the bus network is great. If you want to experience real Japanese hospitality - then this is the only place you need ever stay. Just wonderful. Okami-san, many thanks to you and your husband for making our holiday so memorable.(To add - there is an outstanding restaurant very close by called Okonomiyaki Kiraku. Don't leave Kyoto without visiting!).

The most wonderful experience!
This was such a welcome reprieve after the hustle and bustle of Kyoto! Beautiful home, very organized and tidy:) Our hosts were exceptionally polite and kind, even helping us learn the local slang so that we could communicate like natives. I recommend this Ryokan for any first-time visitors to Japan, as well as tourists looking to relax after a long day. You arw in good hands here!

Wonderful stay and cultural experience
I traveled with my 12 year old son. Our host was wonderful and took great care of us over 4 nights. Our host made us traditional Kyoto breakfast. The location can’t be beat. So many sites and restaurants are but a short walk. I highly recommend Kamari-An for families.

Wonderful place to stay in Kyoto
Had a enjoyable stay at Kamuro-An. It’s an authentic Japanese home experience with wonderful hospitality. The room was clean and comfortable, and the location was great, walking distance from the historical district and Gion. There are plenty of food options nearby too. Would highly recommend

What a treat!
Our stay was amazing! Great area! The hostess was wonderful, very sweet and very helpful. Everything was easy to get to and the accommodations were great! Next time we will stay longer!

Lovely place to stay
We were here for two nights and this was a great place to stay. We were made to feel very welcome. The room was well appointed and the host lovely. We walked into Kyoto, and to from the station but the hotel is also very close to bus stops and train subway stations if you don't want to walk. If you want to buy some pottery there are lots of great shops in the area. If I was going back to Kyoto I would stay here again.

Okami is the best host you'll ever have in your travel. Book this place already, it will be the best decision you've made on your trip. Her hospitality is 6 (out of 5) stars and she welcomes you to her ryokan like it is her home. She and her husband will take care of you. She is a perfectionist, and she always tries to accommodate 110% (even before we realized we need something). The ryokan is immaculate. Her breakfast is overwhelmingly delicious and really a steal for the attention to detail and time invested in preparing for the meal (you must order it in advance before arrival). Don't be scared about the shared bathrooms. There are 2 bathrooms and 2 showers for 3 rooms so you'll barely noticed other guests. This is exemplary of Japanese hospitality. Thank you for this wonderful and memorable experience.

An amazing host and an incredible room
My daughter and I stayed here for three amazing nights. Okami san is a super gracious host, more like a personal friend inviting you to stay with them. She greeted us early in the day to store our luggage until check in, and pointed out the sights we might want to see that day. The location and the room were both magnificent! She greeted us each morning with a traditional breakfast, and was always there for us and our many questions. Don’t let the shared shower and toilets scare you, with only 3 rooms I never encountered another person. Okami san knew my daughter loved these disposable paper pour over coffee filters, and presented her with a package when we left. All I can say is...this place is golden!
