In May we stayed at Gyozanen an onsen ryokan (traditional Japanese style inn with hot springs). The hot springs were wonderful, the traditional Kyoto style food delicious and the staff friendly and helpful.
I stood on the steps of the Sanzenin Temple and took this picture of the small shopping area at the bottom of the temple and roadway up to our ryokan.
Look up to see the outside of the Gyozanen Ryokan. It's sign is on the left.
