    Esteemed Japanese filmmaker Akira Kurosawa stayed here and so can you. Tucked amidst the mystery of Kyoto lies Ishihara Ryokan where authentic Japan awaits you. There is nothing quite like being greeted by the open and friendly smiling faces of owners Mr and Mrs Ishihara...More

    Stayed here with our two kids and we all very much enjoyed the experience. Wonderful warm hospitality and a fabulous Japanese breakfast. The futons were surprisingly comfortable. It is very well located and a comfortable stroll to the Nishiki Markets and Pontocho Alley.

    We stayed one night at Ishihara in February 2017 and it was a really special experience. Hiroko made us feel so welcome. The ryokan is in a fantastic location with lots of lovely shops and restaurants to explore in the neighbourhood, but it is also...More

    City Center
    No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
    blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
    shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
    bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
    peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home
    goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center
    is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and
    clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
