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.
"Wonderful experience while you are in Kyoto"
I stayed for one night at the Ryokan. I was traveling by myself and I was spending 24 hrs in Kyoto. The location is wonderful: right in the middle of Gion, a historical district. I booked 100% Japanese experience and was give a nice, clean room, with tatami mats, futon, table, right next to a beautiful garden. I was served a great Japanese cuisine both for dinner and breakfast, and I was also invited to tour around hotel with a tea ceremony. Best experience of my life!
"Wonderful experience of ryokan stay in charming Gion"
This was a wedding anniversary trip and we were so glad that we chose this charming ryokan instead of a regular hotel. Being in old capital Kyoto with its rich history and cultural sites, staying in a ryokan really completed the overall experience. The Gion neighbourhood is really pretty as well and very peaceful by the flowing river. The staff were so helpful and friendly even though only a couple of them spoke good English. The rest were still very happy to help with some simple English and signing/gestures. We had a garden room which gave lovely views. The room was very spacious and more than enough space even with 2 suitcases. Full set of yukata was provided and replaced with fresh ones every morning. Also amenities like hairdryer, towels, soap/shampoo, toothbrushes, razors. Futons were laid out for us every evening and very comfortable. The buckwheat pillow were more comfortable than they seemed! Try it! Regular pillow are also available on request (ask for 'Western pillows'). There is separate toilet and bathroom. The cedar wooden bath tub smelled heavenly! The kaiseki dinner simply have to be experienced. What an amazing array of food with seasonal ingredients, artful arrangements and beautifully served by gracious ladies (who insisted that we eat rather than try to help her by moving things around on the table!). Breakfast was also superb. We tried both Japanese and Western style breakfasts and both were good, although the Japanese one was definitely superior in terms of preparation and presentation. Nice extras in this ryokan: - There is free tea ceremony demonstration during certain months of the year, which gives nice insights into an important aspect of Japanese culture. - One could also visit the the family shrine with religious and cultural artefacts collected by the family, with staff providing interesting information. - There is a private family bath that can be booked for an hour. This is like a traditional bathhouse but smaller, and can be used privately instead of shared with other guests like a public bathhouse. We really like this. Overall, don't be put off by the thought of sleeping on the floor. The futons are really thick and comfortable. There is also air conditioning and heating in the room. The main issue we had wasn't sleeping but the overall 'lounging about' in the room. Because all the sitting was done on the floor with no chairs (there are floor level moveable 'seats' with chair backs, but no regular chairs), we found it a bit of a strain after a while, but only because we have health issues with our backs/hips/knees. Most people won't have a problem with this. If you are concerned, try to stay for 1 night rather than longer. We felt really well looked after in the ryokan and would not hesitate to recommend this to family and friends visiting Kyoto.
"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!
