If you only have one night, spend it at Miyamasou ryokan although you are going to have to plan well, well in advance and leave your expectations back in Kyoto. If you are here for food, this is the place -- but don't expect standard Japanese keiseki or other options. The rooms are immaculate. The location about an hour drive... More

This is a place you'll want to return to at different times of the year to experience the seasonal changes of the natural environment and the exquisite, kaiseki of freshly picked ingredients sourced from the forest, river and beyond.

We spent a single night here in November. The ryokan is 90 minutes drive from Kyoto, deep into the forested mountains. From the moment we arrived we were looked after superbly. Service was impeccable. The room was stunning - minimalist, but with amazing views of the forest and gurgling streams running by. We walked in the grounds amongst the orange,... More
