At first we planned to travel in Kyoto about 4 days, so already booked Hyatt regency and Westin hotel, after I was strongly recommended by friend that I should stay Kyoto longer. Since visiting the ancient capital, why not to try the local ryokan. So I started to search this kind of establishment, then I realize the ryokan is surprisingly... More

We went to this Ryokan with our two children, the room was great and big and very clean and with a beautiful view on a garden, our room attendant was very kind and helpful. There is no bathroom in the room only a toilet and a washbasin. The bath is in wood and what a feeling!!! We know that normally... More

Like most people on TripAdvisor, I did a huge amount of research before booking a ryokan because of the expense--and because I wanted to have a great experience. I booked Hiiragiya Bekkan largely because of the reviews here--almost all positive, no negative--and I was pretty pleased. Immediately upon walking into our room, I felt relaxed.. there was just something about... More

We stayed for 2 nights and it was a great experience. It was comfortable and they made you feel very well looked after. We asked for a garden room as read that there are no windows if you do not. Also we did not fancy the fish for breakfast on the second morning and so asked for a western breakfast... More

I stayed at ryokan Hiiragiya for one night only. I stayed in 3 ryokan in Kyoto and this one was definitely the best one. The place is absolutely beautiful, with a nice view on an inner japanese garden. The service did reach near perfection, so did the Kaiseki dinner and breakfast.

Why we chose Hiiragiya: My girlfriend and I wanted traditional Japanese luxury to "splurge" on. This would would include Kaiseki dinners, Onsen baths, Tatami mat sleeping, Yukata robes, Japanese gardens and old wooden architecture as seen in samurai movies - things you can only find in Japan. We heard that the grand old ryokans like Hiiragiya main house or Tawaraya... More

I recently stayed at Hiiragiya Bekkan with 3 friends and we had an amazing stay. The service was fantastic, with regular tea and water brought to our room when we returned from our day out. The onsen facilities were nice, with a large soaker tub that fit 3 of us easily, and 3 shower stations with plenty of products and... More

Despite being first timers the staff at this ryokan instantly put us and our nerves at ease - we had a great time getting out of our comfort zones and experiencing some true Japanese hospitality. We paid a bit more for a larger room and we're surprised to find we had two big tatami rooms with a view of a... More

Beyond the decadent accommodations, 10 course dinner menu & a special bkfst all highlighting traditional Japanese Kyoto cuisine it's an education that doesn't stop teaching. The new year traditional floral arrangement near the praying area, the lack of furnishing on the tatami mats, movement of dining table to set out the luscious bedding, the reading room beside the garden, the...

I did quite a bit of research before booking my one night ryokan experience in Kyoto. This was to be my single splurge in Japan. I was infatuated with several of the top ryokans in the area, but could not bring myself to pay the money! I decided on the Hiiragiya Bekkan Annex, and was happy with my choice. As... More
