Everything was as advertised in other reviews. Friendly and accommodating staff, very clean and well kept rooms and common areas. We especially liked that we were treated to macha tea as a welcoming ceremony and the private onsen bath we used. Centrally locates, we were able to walk to several bars and restaurants down some quiet streets in Kyoto. Would highly recommend staying and having this experience.

Wonderful place to stay
The ryokan is very centrally located, near the Kyoto station, yet it's on a small side street so very private. The room was spotless - I did have to adjust to living on the floor, but I had everything I needed. The baths were lovely and private and the breakfast was delicious. The staff was delightful and helpful, so I found the whole experience very enjoyable - you will get a real taste of Japanese life and culture.

Quiet and cozy ryokan
Our stay at Toshiharu Ryokan was perfect. We were in the Satsuki room, which was more than large enough for a couple and had a private balcony with garden. While the room and garden face the street, the ryokan is on a very quiet side street and we did not hear any noise during our stay, at any hour. Our okami and all the ryokan staff were kind and generous and made sure that we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. We wouldn't stay anywhere else!

It was a lovely old Machiya that has been modernised, I was not that happy having to try to book a time slot to use the Japanese bath which was fully booked.
