Everyone was so amazingly nice at this ryokan. The view was breathtaking and the area was a very nice change from the hustle of Kyoto and Tokyo. Our maid was great: friendly, polite and punctual. Well worth the cost.

This Ryokan is by far the best we visited during our recent trip to Japan. A traditional house with all amenities, ensational view, exquisite rooms with wooden bath, great service, excellent food. Amonohashidate offers several temples well worth a visit, boat trips and hiking.

It's hard to decide whether the best thing about Genmyoan ryokan is the glorious view of Ama-no-Hashidate land bridge across the bay or the serenity that can be found in one of the beautiful rooms in this traditional Japanese inn (Honshu, Kyoto Prefecture). Both private and public spa baths are available here, as well as a multi-course Japanese dinner and... More

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Genmyoan Ryokan's exclusive hill-top position overlooks the famous Amanohashidate land bridge, whose unique shape inspired the ancient tale that Amanohashidate is a fallen bridge to heaven. Inside, Genmyoan emanates by-gone elegance through our exceptional attention to traditional detail. Experience a sense of past evoked by service staff in kimono, old artistic treasures on display, and exquisite tea-house craftsmanship. In 1393, the shogun Ashikaga came on a pilgrimage to this hill and was greatly moved by the view. He thereupon suggested the name "Genmyo" for the spot, as it means a feeling beyond the earthly or ordinary. When Genmyoan Ryokan was founded in 1937, the idea came naturally of creating an atmosphere in which one's everyday life and cares could be left behind. The inn has drawn many distinguished guests over its history, from artists and literary figures to the Imperial family. Come experience the serenity of the location, noticed by the shogun so many years ago. ... more   less
