Our experience at Kiyomizu Tenseian was very similar to others posted here. My wife, 13 year old daughter, and I traveled to Tokyo in March to attend a very sad event: the funeral of my wife's father. We had no intention of visiting Kyoto, but after the ceremonies, we needed to get away and decompress. At the last minute, I... More

We spent 4 nights in the Kyomizu Tenseian house with our 2 Young children in March. It was our first stay in Kyoto and in Japan and it was perfect! What we appreciated was : the nice welcome of the owner, his very usefull advice for restaurants every evening, the fact that we had the entire house for ourselves, the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in Salon Haraguchi for a short stay of 3days and 2nights. Mr and Mrs Haraguchi were very friendly, hospitable and very attentive to our needs. We arrived in Kyoto at 1:30pm and we planned to go to The Golden Pavilion, The Ryoan-ji Rock Garden and finally in the Bamboo grove in Arashiyama. We were surprised... More

We stayed 4 nights in Kyoto at Salon Haraguchi Tenseian. It is a two floor traditional house located on the top of a hill, after Maruyama Park. The short walk to get there from Gion is a delight : the park and shrine to walk by are beautiful, and we were lucky that during our time in Kyoto there were... More

We had a fantastic experience due to the hospitality of our hosts at Haraguchi Tenseian Salon. Nothing was too much trouble, and at the time I had some issues with my knee post-skiing. My Haraguchi was so kind to provide me with medical assistance without any request on our behalf. The personal guide was also greatly welcome. Highly recommended! In... More

this experience is an endless successions of first of alls. It doesn't matter which aspect I pick first, it's all a perfect combination of beauty, kindness, professionalism and pure, deep, fascination: once you see Kyoto, they say, you see the real Japan. Well, in the real Japan there is the Haraguchi Tenseian Salon: an amazing two floor ryokan set at... More

I actually stayed at Tensiean Kiyomizu, which is also owned by the same owners Haraguchi-san and his lovely wife. Here are a few things I really loved about it: 1. Location - it's located right at the foot of Gojyozaka, so it's just a 5-10 minute walk up to Kiyomizudera 2. Size - it's a lovely apartment with a Japanese... More

We have the pleasure of confirming what previous guests have already written about Salon Haraguchi Tenseian: It’s truly an amazing experience! First, about our most comfortable accommodations: Located above our host's pottery studio, the unit has 2 bedrooms, a small study/living room, a small kitchenette with a small sitting/dinette area, and one bathroom. It was much too big for us... More

Mr & Mrs Haraguchi were the most thoughtful & helpful hosts for my husband & me during our 4 days (first trip to Japan), meeting us at bus stop on arrival, driving us to the beautiful Golden Pavilion & to the marvellous Bamboo Grove, as well as recommending excellent local eateries that weren't expensive. We enjoyed sole use of Kiyomizu... More

There is not a bad thing I can say about this place or Haraguchi-san. We stayed in the Kiyomizu Tenseian, above his art studio. There is an option of western-style bedroom with twin beds or futon on tatami mats (why anyone would choose a western-style bed while experiencing ryokan hospitality is beyond me). There is a washer-dryer unit for your... More
