    Perfect balance between traditional japanese living and modern amenity, the care and pride put into this ryokan is that of a 5 star hotel. Location is also very convenient, just minutes away from bus stops and subway.

    From being politely reminded to remove our shoes on arrival to the immaculately manicured rooms the experience was excellent. Far enough out to be peaceful yet close enough to trains and parks and temples. Definitely a 5 stars

    City Center
    No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its

    shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
    bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
