Kadensho was my first Ryokan-experience place. All staffs are kind and nice -- they did barely understand or speak English though -- and the room is clean and comfortable. There was a great Onsen so I enjoyed it twice everyday. The dinner and breakfast was also awesome; the dinner includes complimentary oolong tea and Japanese beer. If I could I... More

My family and I absolutely love the onsen ryokan. The staffs speak English, and were polite and friendly. Dinner and breakfast were amazing and delicious. Would definitely love to revisit the ryokan again!

We stayed here for 5 nights and on half-board; rare combination. Kadensho is part of a Japanese style chain of hotels/ ryokans. If you are a non-Japanese speaker, keep in mind that most front line staff spoke little or no English. But do look for those men in blue uniform if you need something sorted. Think they are managers and... More

I visited this resort in Jan, 2016 with a friend. It was a very wonderful experience staying here and totally relaxed for its nice equipment, delicious food and snacks, wonderful hot spring and perfect service, etc. I paid not more than 10000 JP yen for two persons and it includes one night stay and two meals. Besides, Yukata, drinks, snacks,... More

This tradiontional Japanese hotel is the highlight of our trip. The 5 private family baths is the reason we chose this hotel. We stayed in Arashiyama for two nights but was only able to reserve a night here due to its popularity during peak koyo season. The facility is very clean, the staff is very friendly when we arrived and... More

Just in front of Arashiyama station and a walking distance to the famous bridge and the shopping strip. A good introductory to Ryokan but having been to many others, it is no big deal. The attraction was the 5 private bath unlike many other places, only two. Many reviews mention that the food was lavish but their sister branch at... More

Location is very easy to access, 1 minute from Arashiyama station. Twin room is small, hotel also small, onsen baths had 1 common for each gender and 5 special private onsen - not by booking, you just go and check or wait, but I checked and find the private baths are not real mineral baths, a big disappointment.

Very Japanese. Almost no foreigners except for a smattering of Chinese. My room was huge with a Japanese style sitting room and huge TV but no English channels. One of the few ryokan with a bed. You get a free yuk ata and pyjamas. Breakfast choice of Japanese or Western. Dinner and breakfast was quite nice and people dressed in... More

Staying at this hot springs hotel offers you the silence you need, the relaxed mind, a renewed spirit, wonderful sensations to your palate and a sense of renewal and new energy. The design, the variety of offers: the hot springs, sauna and bath, the congenial cuisine, the friendliness of staff and the surroundings: this is quintessential Japan!

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.
