We were welcomed by the staff and owner. The whole experience was exceptional. Private tatami room with private Japanese bath and soaking tub. Our server (geisha?) was delightful and took very good care of us...especially for my husband who was very uncomfortable sitting on the...More
We stayed one night at Hiiragaya the first night we arrived in Kyoto so that we could experience a traditional Ryokan while in Japan. We were welcomed warmly by the family and staff and led to our rooms in the new section of the inn.The...More
Although it was great for the experience of an authentic Japanese inn, I do not think it is worth the price.
Staff friendly and great location. For what we were paying, we thought the food could have been better. The biggest thing that I didn't...More
It is hard to describe how amazing our stay at Hiiragiya was. Incredibly beautiful hotel centrally located in Kyoto. The traditional dinner in our room was an amazing experience. Everything about our experience was unique and top-shelf. We stayed two nights, and that was enough....More
Just what we wanted, to step into the world of japan and live the traditional experience. It is expensive by most standards, but we treasure this stay as much as we do the visit to Kyoto and the temples and shrines. We stayed 2 nights...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.
