I will be visiting Kyoto in June with my 14 yr old son. It will be his first visit to Kyoto and his first stay in a traditional ryokan. We have the opportunity to spend one night at either Shiraume or Tamahan. I've read all the online comments I can find on both ryokans and I know that our experience at either will be wonderful.
However, the kaiseki dinner at the ryokan will be our one kaiseki meal in Kyoto (I'm hoping to get into Den in Tokyo), so my ryokan choice will be largely determined by the kaiseki offered.
Can anyone shed any light on what differences, if any, we might expect between the two kaisekis?
