We spent the last night of our 10 day holiday at this ryokan as a treat. Having stayed in other ryokans, I must say that this is not a traditional ryokan. Firstly the hotel is not housed in an old machiya building, in fact it is probably purpose-built. The reception and public area are more like a traditional Japanese hotel....

After an overnight flight, we reached the ryokan around 1pm. The staff offered us to check in to our room immediately knowing that we both feeling tired after all the traveling.

This ryokan is exactly what you see from the pictures. It is a new short building in front of a big temple area. My room offered a nice view to this temple and had too much space for 2 people, which is very rare in hotels in Japan. People from the front desk is helpful althougth they don´t speak good...

Nice Ryokan close to Kyoto Station (10 mins walk). We did the room only option because we wanted to explore other options food wise. If you are looking for a traditional Japanese experience with meals and onsen (communal bath), there are much more attractive options available, especially in rural Japan. However, if you are just looking for a clean room...

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighbourhood Profile
Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.

“I believe all the rooms are amazing because it is a pretty new building. The best of all is the reaj japanese kimono the hotel offers to guests while they stay in!”

“Rooms at the front have a great view of the temple across the road but the traffic is a little bit noisy during peak times.”
