Kinoe is well located in walking distance to Gion, Ninenzaka and Kiyomizu-dera. The staff are really friendly and our room was very spacious and comfortable. I absolutely would recommend this to anyone looking for a ryokan experience in Kyoto as it ticks every box!!
This ryokan has a very good location on a quiet side street less than 10 min walk from Gion. The staff is very helpful, and polite. The customer service personnel is English speaking. When you have question about tourist attractions or travel arrangements, they can...More

Amazing experience! The staff is so friendly and kind! The food is something special! Typical Japanese breakfast and typical Japanese room! I would come here again for sure! The price is not so expensive considering that you can experience the traditional Japanese culture!
Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko" in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners, Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the streets on their way to and from work, where they fan dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets
glow with lanterns along the river, where weeping willows catch the starlight and the air is warmed with conversation. Groups pass through to populate the restaurants and bars along the riverfront, but Gion still manages to be a mostly quiet district, due in large part to limited automotive traffic through many of its streets. Gion is a wonderful place to indulge in Kyoto's local and customary cuisines, and is best enjoyed after dark.
You’re able to book with either a Japanese breakfast included, Japanese breakfast & dinner or room only. Rates will vary for the dates you’re considering but room only is roughly JPY 9,000 less for a room for 2 adults.
