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

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

Just came back from 4 nights at Kagihei, 2 adults with 2 kids. It is excellent, very clean, lovely staff and amazing location, right in the middle of Nishiki Markets. Everything is on your doorstep. Breakfast is Japanese style, the kids got stuck into the fish and everything else that was hiding in all those small dishes. There is no... More

Kagihei is a wonderful ryokan which is worth doing a little research to book. I do not believe it is possible to book online from Australia - but the owners speak enough English to be able to make a booking over the phone. We ended at the ryokan as our Japanese friends had booked it. The room is lovely with... More

Wonderful traditional Japanese Inn in the heart of Kyoto. My wife, Aunt, and I stayed in this Inn during a visit to Kyoto. We booked it through a Japanese travel agency out of Tokyo. Upon arriving we were escorted to our room by the owner who was dressed in a kimono. She presented us with tea and chatted for a... 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.
