My girlfriend and I stayed here for 3 nights during our trip to Japan and greatly enjoyed it. The area is very walkable, plenty of good shops and restaurants around. Good access to buses as well. The people were very welcoming and helpful, and the breakfast is great. Highly recommended.

If you're looking to experience a traditional ryokan, this is a solid option. The owner is attentive and helpful with good English skills. Rooms are large - who knew sleeping on a mat could be so comfortable? If you're into using an onsen, they have them there, though rooms also include private baths. The included breakfast is really stunning -... More

Kagihei is in a great spot that makes it incredibly easy to navigate and see as much of Kyoto as possible in a small amount of time. We only stayed for two nights, but found the host welcoming and informative. The japanese breakfast is very traditional and my boyfriend wasn't too keen on certain things, but overall the experience was... More

As an American, I was thoroughly impressed. The room was fairly spacious and everything was clean and well kept. The proprietress was the sweetest lady and we greatly enjoyed staying with her. The breakfast is delicious and filling and the location is very nice as well. It's close to the main shopping street and easy access to the buses you'll... More

Although the room was clean, and had all the requisite Japanese décor, it was just okay in our opinion. This is probably due to what we felt was the high cost of the room, which wasn't justified by the overall experience. It is in the middle of a busy neighborhood/business area, which is positive in that it's near lots of... More

Maybe more of a 3.44/5. Pros - Location very central, and you can basically walk to most things if you are in decent shape - decent size room with good AC - nice kyoto style breakfast every morning - tea and snack waiting for you whenever you return to your room - quiet Cons - Strict times for things (back...

Kyoto is a massive and there are a ton of choices. This Ryokan is very well done the staff is great. You don't find a lot English spoken in Japan but the staff here does a pretty good job. The rooms are large and comfortable and good bathroom facility in the room and a onsen on site. Everything is very... More

Traveling with my wife and 2 teenage daughters, I struggled mightily to find vacancy in Kyoto period, let alone accomodations for all 4 of us ( a challenge in Japan). Then Kagihei appeared on Agoda and I pounced on it. Much more than I hoped to spend per night, I still didn't want to miss Kyoto on our first visit... More

All you can imagine a japanese ryokan should have, traditional big room with toilet and separate bathroom. Nice traditional bath. If you like japanese breakfast you full assortment. Clean, superservice but they don't have wi-fi! It was a perfect location, near to everything you need. It is not cheap but good value for the money.

We stayed here for three nights in July 2014 and had an unforgettable experience. The owners (husband and wife) were the most wonderful people and made our stay very enjoyable. The traditional breakfasts were the highlight and extremely nutritious, which is important when travelling. The location was unbeatable; with a 5-10 minutes walk to subway stations. Also you're basically right... More

Staying in Shinkyogoku Shopping District

Neighborhood Profile
Shinkyogoku Shopping District
Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes. Trends-in-the-making can be spotted in the tall windows of several one-of-a-kind stores featuring local labels and modish boutiques. Arcades, outdoor concert spaces, mega department stores, and small, enchanting cafes have sprung up to accommodate the increasing traffic. Whether looking for souvenirs and kitsch on Shinkyogoku Street, or scoping out the massive food court and restaurant floor at Takashimaya Department store, there's something for every wallet or purse, and a buyer for every item.
