I think no-one wants to give this ryokan a bad review because the people who work there are so nice but to be honest to other Tripadvisor users, I have to give them a poor review. We were very interested in experiencing an authentic ryokan during our recent trip to Japan and probably didn't plan far enough in advance to... More

For Japanese, this is such a nostalgic place.They maintained traditional buildings (exterior and interior), garden, food, and services of good old Japan. For visitors from abroad, this ryokan gives you a real feeling of Japan you always read and heard about. It is centrally located but on a small residential street where you can walk like locals.

Every single detail in this ryokan is extraordinary. Food is simply amazing and service flawless (they gave us a little gift at the checkout, after they've found out that we were in our honeymoon trip). I recommend to visit this place if you want to taste the traditional Japanese culture.

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
