Travelers' Choice 2018 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Motonago hospitality With Kyoto flavor a homy feeling. Motonago nestles in a quiet, nostalgic scene, completely apart from the hustle and bustle of the city. Once you step outside, you can sense the overflowing taste of Kyoto - Japan's old capital. All the charm of Kyoto is gathered here, where Motonago stands. On entering through a door with a tiled roof while seeing a tasteful earthen wall made using traditional techniques, Motonago welcomes you with a warm hospitality that only a humble inn like ours, with its 11 rooms, can offer. Guests can relax while enjoying dinner and breakfast in their rooms, and our staff wear traditional kimonos as they serve the meals. Kyoto style cuisine made with special seasonal ingredients succeeds in bringing the Kyoto taste, with our chefs' sophisticated skills and selected menu, to our guests.

We stayed 3 nights here in January during a two week trip in Japan. I wish we could have stayed another week! As soon as you enter, you are greeted warmly, your shoes and luggage re taken, you're given slippers, and escorted to your room....More

We were interested in a traditional Ryokan experience including Keiseki dinner, but were also looking for one that included an Onsen that both my husband and I could share (versus being separated by gender) which really limited our search based off of price and existence....More

The owners and staff are super helpful, extremely kind. The ryokan is very clean. The food is outstanding. I recommend the private bath, but you can also schedule the other baths for private use. They will call cabs for you, loan you umbrellas, provide directions....More

Families are not really the typical guests for ryokans but we were accommodated wonderfully. We have three children aged 8 to 12. Some difficult dietary preferences taken care of with incredible attention to detail.... and what food! Course after course of fastidiously prepared delicious dishes....More
