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
