Try booking a ryokan in Kyoto in March for the month of April. It is NOT easy. Hifumi Ryokan was one of the only places with space (partly b/c they aren't on booking.com). The hotel has a person on staff who speaks fantastic English so it was easy enough booking via email. We were pleasantly surprised with the ryokan. It's... More

My boyfriend and I wanted to see the Sakura (cherry blossoms) in April last year. We book our stay by E-mails with the ryokan (inn). The e-mail reply was efficient and very clear. They offer us a room on the second floor, which was great, spacious, and clean. Very traditional Japanese rooms. Wifi was strong. Very good value and great... More

The hotel actually is five minutes from the train station and the place most city busses start out from. Four of us did fit the smaller room but the ten tatami room would have been more comfortable but were not available when we booked. Bathrooms are small but there is a spacious public bath, Japanese style, on the ground floor.... More

This is one of the nice, quiet ryokan near Kyoto Station (JR) ... It's very convenient to go to the other sight seeing places. Furthermore, I really love the active and service-mind services of this ryokan

Good customer service. Very authentic to experience Japanese ryokan. The meals( breakfast & dinner) served are value for money and true japanese. If only the public bath is natural outdoor hot spring onsen would be perfect.

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighborhood Profile
Shimogyo-ku
Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.
