The staff were perfect! They went above and beyond to meet us where we were at and despite the language barrier were very attentive and patient. The food: was so pretty and full of unique flavors that we got to explore and enjoy. Tasted amazing. Even for my wife who may have a somewhat sensitive palat she still thoroughly enjoyed... More

We spent two nights at this lovely hotel meters away from the well-known Togetsukyo Bridge in Arashiyama. The hotel is probably 15 minutes on foot from the Arashiyama train station, but the hotel website suggests that it offers a shuttle pick up from the station. We therefore took advantage of this service when we arrived at the station one late... More

Our group of 6 stayed here for 1 night in June. We booked 3 rooms and I emailed them before my trip to request dinner together. Their response was fast and suggested us to have dinner and breakfast at the larger room (10 tatami room). Their service is good and considerate. Once we arrived, it was heavy rain and their...

The main town and bamboo forest are the other side of the bridge. take your shoes off in lobby, wear slippers to your room. you are served green tea and can put on your yukata. dinner served in your room,...

We had a wonderful 2-night stay. There was a small miscommunication? which the staff very nicely resolved for us (more below). **BATHING** The Ryokann has a nice quaint public bathing area (gender-separate, of course) - but also offered the option to rent a large bathing area for up to 4 people, which I thought was a grand idea for families...

This was our first time in a ryokan. We stayed one night. We arrived in the evening, and the day after we explored the Arashiyama area - walking distance to the bamboo forrest and other sights in the area. The service was excellent. Our hostess/waitress was smiling, friendly and had a lot of patience with our complete lack of knowledge... More

Good location facing the bridge. A very well kept old hotel though some furniture looks tired. Our room was facing the street so not much of a view. However, the service was simply excellent. From the moment you step into the hotel, the very friendly staff, the help with the luggage, the welcome tea and candies, and the little snacks... More

This is a terrific Ryokan. I stayed here on 6/30/15 and was running late taking the bullet train form tokyo to kyoto bc of an accident. Their last kaiseki service was at 8:00pm and they were very accommodating to extend the kaiseki until 9:00pm. We had traveled for 15 hours at this time and it was pouring rain when we... More

Authentic ryokan in Arashiyama, a calm place in the tradicional city of Kyoto. Surrounded by woods and small temples and shrines, the place sends you 200 years ago at Japan. Amazing private onsens in some rooms, with an espectacular service, with high quality japanese traditional food. It seems very expensive... But it's cheap when you see this ryokan, the onsens,...

Staying in Western Kyoto

Neighborhood Profile
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.
