We made the 1 1/2 hr trek by taxi to (11,000 yen) to Miyamasou after reading about the ryokan in the Wall Street Journal. I took my two daughters, ages 16 and 22. The drive was beautiful though the forested mountains past small villages. I am happy that I didn't attempt the drive myself because the road is very narrow.... More

This is one of the greatest places on earth. We missed the color changes of the leaves by a few weeks but the setting is perfect. It is a little out of the way but worth the drive. The food is the highest form of Kaiseki. All local and seasonal. Very creative too. I took my family so there were... More

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. Each time we have been to Miyamasou we've tried a variety of different dishes according to the season from wild berries... More

we arranged our luncheon there because it was recommended to us by an expert who has been there. The experience was so good, so far beyond anything that I could have expected. it was the consummate Kaiseki ryori experience in Japan and the lunch, which lasted 3 hours, were simply unlike any other meal that I have had, in terms...

Dinner for two at the 3 star French Laundry in the Napa Valley will easily cost you $1,000 and up. Breakfast and dinner at Miyamasou, with a starred restaurant, with rooms and hot bath (o-furo) in a tranquil valley next to a 1,000 year old temple will cost about $1,200 for two. Luxury is not inexpensive. My choice is to... More

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
