The monks were fantastic. Very kind and helpful. They gave a tour of the temple and carried our bags to our room as well. Supper was large and well rounded, same with breakfast. The property itself is beautiful and centrally located near everything, so it is very easy to walk anywhere.

Jokiin is a Buddhist temple and a shukubo for guests, so it doesn't really lend itself to a typical hotel rating. It's not very big, so it's relatively quiet and peaceful. The staff are friendly and helpful and speak good English and they explained everything very clearly. The food is plain, but all you need. Attending morning prayers was an unforgettable experience. We hope to return to Jokiin.
