My wife and I, recently had occasion to spend five days, of our ten-day visit to Japan, in Kyoto.
My nephew, a long term resident of Tokyo, booked us into the Tougetsu Hotel, a traditional ryokan in the heart of Kyoto, and we could not...More
This Ryokan, run by two old but fit Japanese sisters, is for you if you want to experience a traditional Ryokan. It's a very old building made out of mostly wood, everything squeaks and you hear every voice and footstep in the building.
This ryokan is really old fashion. The owners are even older. The rooms are ok and the location is fine. Make sure you rent a bike in Kyoto.

Japan > Kinki > Kyoto Prefecture > Kyoto > City Centre
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.
