Beautiful experience with absolutely fantastic, generous people. I have travelled the world and Asia in particular and would recommend this ryokan for a memorable experience.
At the beginning it is a hidden place close to the busy commercial area. Once you get in, it is...More
This ryokan represents true Japanese hospitality. Mr Nishida n his wife makes you feel so comfortable. Clearly worth the Michelin stars n Relai n chateaux brand that has been awarded. The location is very good, near the nikishi market, although it may be a bit...More

Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes. Trends-in-the-making can be spotted in the tall
windows of several one-of-a-kind stores featuring local labels and modish boutiques. Arcades, outdoor concert spaces, mega department stores, and small, enchanting cafes have sprung up to accommodate the increasing traffic. Whether looking for souvenirs and kitsch on Shinkyogoku Street, or scoping out the massive food court and restaurant floor at Takashimaya Department store, there's something for every wallet or purse, and a buyer for every item.
