Had a great time here. We had a group of 4 and knew it was going to be tight on space as the rooms are much better suited for just one couple but we made due in order to experience a ryokan within our vacation budget. Everything was absolutely excellent. The room was clean and had everything you could need. The food was easily the best we had on our two week trip. And Taiseikan is literally a 2 minute walk from the JR rail station. If there is one thing that was more of an observation than a problem was that our room was facing the ocean but the main street separates Taiseikan from the water so the business of the cars rushing by took a little bit away from the relaxation aspect of the private bath. If you are a couple and looking for an affordable ryokan conveniently on the way from Kyoto to Tokyo or vice versa, stay here.
