“A truly special ryokan in the heart og Gion”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 31, 2010

We waited till the last minute to book our stay and paid a huge premium for it. Nevertheless, we were very happy with Kinoe and very pleased by the attentiveness of the staff and the proximity to temples which had mesmerizing fall leaf foliage around the grounds. My wife was pleasantly surprised that the staff had cleaned and brushed her Ugg boots. The staff also provided good advice in English! Kinoe is near the tradtional tea houses. We were able to catch a glimpse of the geisha in their full kimono splendor going to work.

The kaiseki dinners were superb particularly on our second night of our stay. We enjoyed the kaiseki dinner which was served in the privacy of our room. Though a bit pricey, this was one of the few splurges we have done in a long while and worth every yen of it.

Kinoe is the place to be for a delightful visit to Kyoto,
