Tucked right at the end of the street, this is one Ryokan that I was eagerly wanting to stay after all the rave reviews. The Ryokan is quite a walk (about 15 – 20min) from the train station and if you are travelling in groups, I would suggest that you share a cab. Though it takes about 5 – 10min... More

The hotel is a resort hotel with a big bath. The atmosphere is luxurious. The hotel provided a good plan including dinner and breakfast for a single tourist with economy price. The dinner was a course of Japanese dishes. The break fast was buffet. Next time, I want to come with my family.

We booked this after reading on the booking company's website that it was a ryokan. It is in fact a cheap conference hotel. I would not stay here again and I would not recommend it. The food which was included was traditional Japanese pickles and tofu hotpot for dinner and breakfast- nit worth it for us as we couldn't eat... More

This is a good choice for those looking for a quiet, secluded place in a beautiful setting, and don't mind a 20 minute commute into central Kyoto. For a first time visitor wanting to be right in the thick of things, this location would be inconvenient. We have been to Kyoto before and loved Arashiyama, so this was exactly what... More

The Ranzan Hotel is in the Arashiyama area of Kyoto, on the banks of a beautiful river where the river comes out of a gorge from the mountains. The hotel has both Japanese- and western-style rooms (the former with tatami mats on the floor and futons, the latter with western-style beds). It is built around a garden courtyard that is... More

Staying in Western Kyoto

Neighborhood Profile
Western Kyoto
Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and impressive vistas during the Hanami cherry blossom viewing season mean that it is busiest in warmer months, though also gorgeous in the fall, when the mountains and hills along the banks turn multi-colored. Historic and engaging, even the rail cars in Western Kyoto seek to exemplify its traditional nature and scenic beauty. Many people, including natives, come to visit the 1,200 rakan statues at the Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple, which is still in use as a religious site.
