Very comfortable, clean, spacious. The meals were spectacular: breakfast and dinner. For people with bad knees they have tables and chairs. You can order beer. The food is not vegetarian unlike some other monastery foods. The opportunity to see an early buddhist service at Ninna-ji and to walk the garden before the crowds was unique. A great value!

Staying in Northern Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
Northern Kyoto
Hot springs and historic temples characterize the leafy landscapes of Northern Kyoto. Acres of tranquil residential streets are interrupted by some of Kyoto's most gorgeous architectural gems, including the majestic Golden Pavilion of Kinkakuji, the serene artistry of the Ryoanji Temple rock gardens, and the bold red paint across the structures of Enryakuji Temple. Once a religious core of the city, the district now boasts some of its most remote and peaceful hot springs, as well as a few of its best family-run mom-and-pop restaurants. A blend of extremely local at its outskirts, and highly peopled at its tourist centers, Northern Kyoto nonetheless retains a halcyon air in harmony with nature.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Omuro Kaikan Hall is a lodging facility situated in Ninna-ji Temple, a World Heritage Site. Lodging facilities in Buddhist temples are called Shukubo, which are open not only for follower families and worshippers, but for general visitors. Our guests will be able to enter Kon-do Hall (Great Buddha Hall) closed to the public and to hear reading of the sutras and preaching by Buddhist monks there. They can also take a nice walk within the precinct in the morning before opening the temple. Close to Ryoan-ji Temple and Kinkaku-ji Temple, Omuro Kaikan Hall makes the best base for your sightseeing in the northern area of Kyoto. ... more   less

“Make sure to give yourself time to visit the temple (free pass) when it opens at 9:00AM.”
