When Japanese Noble Laureate Kawabata wanted to get away and find inspiration he came to this ryokan (we ate in the room that he stayed). After staying here, I know now why. From the moment we entered and were led to the common room for...More
My husband and I stayed at Hiiragiya to celebrate our 5th wedding anniversary last month. This was by far one of the most memorable stays of our trip. From the moment we first arrived, the staff made us feel incredibly welcome. The service was absolutely...More

I have stayed in dozens of Ryokan in Japan from East to West during the past decades, and Hiiragiya is simply the best among them. The architecture was perfectly maintained, and the serenity hold each historical element together, forming an unique traditional yet modern atmosphere....More

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
local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.

Your best bet is to email Hiiragiya directly and ask for the rates for the dates you plan to go. They vary based on the season and whether you're staying in the old or new wing. Rates are priced per person and usually include dinner and breakfast. Dinners are either kaiseki or shabu shabu. Breakfast can either be Japanese or Western. Book well in advanced because they only have 28 rooms and reservations go quickly. Good luck! I loved my stay here as well as the warm staff.
