Ugenta offers the best ryokan room that I have ever been to. Detailed design in the room and the gorgeous food, not to mention the breathtaking onsen tubs on the top of the building.

Kibune is definitely worth visiting, and don't miss out Ugenta if you happen to be in Kibune :)

Room Tip: There are only two rooms at Ugenta. Either one will give you a perfect ryokan experience.

This ryokan was the highlight of our Japan trip... We stayed at Four Seasons, Peninsulas etc, but this was truly an experience. we had the Japanese room (there are only two rooms - one traditional and one western style) -- and we enjoyed it sooo much.

The food was to die for - but I guess for food lovers of the Japanese cuisine! Not for beginners...

The service was more than amazing as we had it basically all to ourselves! I wish we could return to Japan and to Ugenta.

This place is 45Mins Approx from Kyoto Train Station, Along the car journey to your destination you follow the path of the main river with beautiful tree's and other scenery which will change from city to rural as you get closer to this destination.

The Ryokan is set along side a riviene at is both calming and scenic.

Its a great place if you want to just get away from it all and relax.
There are 2 rooms there a western style room or tradional Japanese room.
We stayed in the traditional Japanese room and it was massive.
Over 2 Floors you have 2 Hot tubs (1 in and 1 outside)
A balcony that over looks the riviene and a bedroom with tatami mats and duvets (Very comfortable)

The ground floor has a sunken table as a centrepiece with heated floor for your feet.
The room has airconditioning and a state of the art electronic toilet (with seat warmer of course). Also a TV but dont expect to receive too many channels or CNN or BBC News etc. Its not that kind of place.

The top floor has a cd player and a computer although everything is in Japanese but they can convert some of it into english. But you can connect your laptop to the LAN cable.

You need to have a fairly good understanding of the Japaese language as the staff here do not speak too much english but are very very helpful. From the time you check in to when Breakfast and dinner is being served it is all done with great care and respect.

Breakfast and Dinner is included and breakfast can be Continental English or Traditional Japaese (Fish Rice Miso etc)

Dinner is a long 1-2 hour affair with approx 10 courses served individually.
Amazing presentation of food and amazing original Japaenese flavours of food. Thi is real Authentic Rural Japan.

Worth the money and worth the experience.

There is not much around the long hill side, a pottery shop at the bottom a few traditional restaurants and also a beautiful temple.
