Kyoto is een voormalige hoofdstad van Japan, een bijzonder veelzijdige en gezellige stad met veel bezienswaardigheden. Het hoofdstation van Kyoto, waar de Shinkansen-treinen arriveren, ligt centraal in de stad en wordt omringd door winkels, restaurants en accommodaties. Net als Tokyo biedt ook Kyoto een behoorlijk uitgebreid metronetwerk, waarmee u gemakkelijk door de stad kunt reizen.
"Highly recommended for traditional ryokan experience"
Great location in the middle of Gion - walking distance to all shrines in Higashiyama and also only a few minutes away from downtown and major subways stations and bus stops to get to various sights around the city. Incredibly friendly staff with amazing breakfasts and beautifully prepared delicious and very generous dinners served in your room each day. They also have a traditional tea house in the middle of the garden and the tea ceremony is a nice way to start your stay in Kyoto - it's 800 yen per person. I got tonsillitis during my stay and the ryokan recommended an excellent English speaking doctor nearby and one of the lovely staff at the ryokan took excellent care of me with ice packs for my fever and remaking our futons during the day for me to rest - it felt like having a sweet Japanese grandmother!
This is an immersive experience in Japanese culture. We stayed 3 days in this beautiful ryokan. Breakfast and dinner are served in your room. For breakfast you can choose the Japanese breakfast (rice, miso soup, fish, pickled dish, etc), or Western (toast, scrambled egg and bacon). Dinner is a set meal, VERY traditional and a work of art absolutely every dish. The in-room bathroom is Western style tub, toilet and sink, and you can reserve time in the family bath with an incredible wooden soak tub. I highly recommend you try this. There is a formal tea ceremony 3x a week in their tea house, where they teach the art and history of the tea ceremony.
Genuine japanese experience in a traditional ryokan. Staff is very attentive and constantly asks you if everything is ok. For breakfast and dinner you get very traditional food, unknown to most western tourists, you can also choose to have a western meal if you prefer. You have your room transformed into a bedroom with a fouton bed. Communication can be difficult with some staff members not fluent in English but in someway you understand each other. The room had also a nice terrace with view on the beautiful garden. The location is perfect, the streets around the area are very traditional and romantic. I personally could not stay longer than one night here, but it is defnitely a must experience to do in Kyoto!
"Not just a place to stay but a unique cultural experience"
We chose to spend a night in this ryokan for the cultural uniqueness it promised, and we were not disappointed. We arrived at the guest house by taxi, and were immediately asked to take off our shoes (standard in Japan) and were ushered into a waiting area, where we were served hot tea in a beautiful cup. The area overlooked their garden, which was somewhat small, but lovely. We were advised that the staff aimed to ensure that we had a wonderful experience and then explained about the wooden soaking tub that could be booked (which we did not avail ourselves of) and of the tea ceremony to be offered that evening, which we did. We were then asked to put on special shoes for walking in the garden and escorted to our room. The shoes were one size fit all, which meant that it was a little difficult to navigate the stone path to our room, but not impossible. The room was very spare, with a small tv, two bamboo stools and a lovely, low wooden table (for eating). We were poured more tea, given a small packaged snack and advised we had free time until dinner. Our room had traditional screens and overlooked the garden. Dinner was amazing. We were served multiple ( as in 7-8) courses of small amounts of interesting food in beautiful serving ware. Sashimi, multiple vegetable courses, soup, and tofu were among the offerings. Everything was explained and our server demonstrated how to eat each course. Later we were taken to a special area where the tea ceremony was held, which included a primer on the process. We were also given a tour of some of the treasures of the guesthouse including ceramics and a kimono from the 1800s. When we were ready for bed our server came to the room, moved our serving table to the edge of the room and laid out the bedding. We were a little concerned that the futon would not be comfortable, but it was exceedingly comfortable, as was the rice pillow we had. For breakfast we had a choice of western or Japanese style. We went with Japanese style and were not disappointed. This is an exceptionally unique experience that I recommend to everyone.
"A wonderful experience"
We stayed here for one night as part of a Riviera Tour. The staff are very helpful and friendly and work had to ensure that you have an enjoyable experience. As part of the experience we had a multi-course dinner whilst wearing a Yukata and Haori. The staff came to our rooms to assist us in wearing them correctly and explained each course of the multi-course dinner. For 'westerners' they do provide low level stools in your room and breakfast is served to your room but other than that its indoor camping. A good memory that will stay with us for ever
