Western Kyoto
Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and impressive vistas during the Hanami cherry blossom viewing season mean that it is busiest in warmer months, though also gorgeous in the fall, when the mountains and hills along the banks turn multi-colored. Historic and engaging, even the rail cars in Western Kyoto seek to exemplify its traditional nature and scenic beauty. Many people, including natives, come to visit the 1,200 rakan statues at the Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple, which is still in use as a religious site.

Stayed in a room with private onsen (3rd floor 鹿王) on 8/20/2018. The room is much more spacious than expected for 3 of us. Bathroom is a bit outdated but not too small. Tatami looks clean and new. The room also comes with robes/yukata for each person. The ladies got to

It was the most amazing experience! It was definetly worth the money, though it was quite expensive. We only stayed one night because of the price, but that was for sure enough time to experience a traditional stay! We had the traditional multi-course meal Kaiseki, and though

Really glad we stayed here, just for one night. It was so much fun and such an experience. Traditional Japanese guest house. We were encouraged to wear kimonos which were provided in the room. Staff were so polite and friendly. The experience involved traditional Japanese

"Best view by the river comes with an extremely high price tag."
"Room with onsen"
"We had a room with a small garden and private outdoor bath - amazing to have an early morning bath with a view of the hills!"
"Mountain side building - cheaper but food and service were just as great and the river is just 2 minutes' walk away. The standard 8-mat room was big enough for 2 adults + 1 young child."
