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.
"A Wonderful Japanese Experience"
I thoroughly enjoyed staying at Gion Yoshi-Ima recently for a group study tour. Thank you to the freindly caring staff who made the expereince even more memorable. The amazing attention to detail, the delicious breakfasts served in our rooms and the continual unfolding courses we enjoyed at dinner. Such a special memory. The location represdents old world charm with lots of interesting restaurants, coffee houses and shops where you can find that extea special gift. The garden rooms offer a peaceful serene outlook.
"Family Traditions Preserved"
Unfortunately Japan was experiencing a cold snap...especially for Californians! Many of the hallways that connect the rooms are glass or sliding doors making them chilly! Our room had large sliding glass doors opening into a view of a tiny garden below. Then a narrow wooden passage ran the length which led to the bathroom and also contained a small table and 2 chairs. These were sandwiched between the sliding glass doors and sliding rice paper walls...again a tad chilly! There was a heater mounted on the ceiling that would sufficiently heat the room. If you are a big person it might be hard to get past the table to the bathroom and you must be able to comfortably sit on the floor although the little "hallway" table is an option for meals. The floor is tatami with 2 "legless chairs" and a low table. These were slid to the side after dinner to put the futons on the floor. These were on top off a thick pad and we found them quite comfortable. Thick puffy comforters kept us warm. Before breakfast the futons are put up so the table can be slid back for breakfast. We were in the older 2nd building although everything is joined with halkways and feels like 1 building. We chose the breakfast and dinner plan with both meals consisting of many tiny dishes of fish, pickled vegetables, cooked vegetables, soup, custards, rice, etc. One dinner was sukiyaki cooked at our table. The chef demonstrates a classical artistry with beautiful presentation. Part of the enjoyment is the actual china and stoneware...each tiny plate and bowl is different from rustic handmade to delicately painted translucent china. The woman who helped us must have worked 12 hour days...serving us cheerfully both breakfast and dinner as well as laying-out and packing-up the futon. She rode her bike to work and started the day in a western skirt and traditional japanese ikat jacket (indigo blue with white woven pattern) and ended the day in a full beautiful kimono. I speak a little Japanese and Google Translate helped us communicate. Each day we had a different vase and flower in an alcove. The tea ceremony was a shortened version with a young man translating the history and tradition into english. We thought it was worth it and is only available Saturday and 1 other day. The room had a small 1 person shower and soaking tub and there is a lovely traditional bath available by reservation downstairs. It has a deep wooden tub that can hold 2 "small-medium" adults. The family heirlooms have been gathered into one little museum room that also has their personal (and still used) altar. Guests have cotton kimonos and for winter a heavier "jacket" and slippers that may also be purchased. My husband purchased a wool blend navy kimono that is well made, warm, and a good price for sale in the lobby. The location is perfect, we walked everywhere we visited. The autumn leaves were rich yellow, bright orange, burnt orange, crimson, magenta...the Yasaka Shrine was stunning with beautiful gardens. I don't know if it was because it was the tradition to dress in kimono to view the autumn leaves or if there are always many many men and women dressed traditionally. It was so much fun to see the beautiful brocade obis and kimono patterns against the autumn colors. Definitely spend at least one night...we stayed 3 nights.
"Wonderful Experience at Ryokan in Gion Area"
I had not stayed in the Gion area of Kyoto previously. The inn is located in an area easily accessible to train stations and a close walk to Chionji temple. The food was beautifully prepared and delicious - the staff professional, helpful, and added to the joy of the stay. The inn includes a nice garden and there are front staff who speak and understand English.
"Stepping back into history"
I arrived late at the hotel because of my tour group but hotel staff were wonderful and provided dinner with top notch service. On top of that a group of us got a chance to experience a tradition tea ceremony. The hotel is located in a charming old Kyoto area and is very close to the Yasaka Shrine. Would recommend this hotel!
"Great Ryokan experience"
We stayed one night in the Ryokan. This was a unique Japanese experience and I highly recommend it. Nice spacious room, with en suite facilities. The dinner was beautifully prepared and served. We had the western breakfast, and this was also very good. Before dinner we went to the Gion corner theatre for the 6pm performance. The show only lasts 50 minutes and is well worth a visit.
