Neighborhood
Nishijin District
A district with a long textile heritage, ancient Kyoto is still alive in the Nishijin District. Studded with its weaving factories, tea houses, and onsen, the neighborhood is charming and peaceful with a self-possessed air. Less traveled than other parts of the city, it is a district where you can take it at your own pace. Visitors can explore the many weaving and cloth houses, the free kimono shows, and the many shops selling traditional clothing and goods. Showcasing architecture with sloping roofs and wooden reliefs dating to decades past, the streets in the Nishijin District transport you back in time, making them a joy to wander.

A friendly welcome at the reception. The room is big enough to walk around, very clean and daily renewed towels. The room has AC, TV, refrigerator, water cooker and a private bathroom (Japanese style). There are washing machines and even a small kitchen you can use yourselves.

I booked last minute because my wife wanted to spend the day at the former Royal Palace in Kyoto. Totally regret planning that as half a day is more than enough time to explore the palace grounds. Plus, wish we had stayed at a nicer, more modern hotel. We went in April and
