We would highly recommend it. Stayed 3 nights - Ryokan is in a clean modern building but is otherwise very traditional Japanese. We were greeting with a semi-formal green tea while formalities were sorted and bag taken to our room. The room was traditional tatami mat, low table and futons to sleep on which we found comfortable. There was a...

We stayed here for one night (was booked out other nights). It was fine, clean and close to the station. The room was cute, however the vibe of the place was not really as traditional as I would have liked. I got the impression from the website that the place was really going to be impressive, but it was average....

We stayed at Towa Ryokan on 2 of our 5 nights in Kyoto. The website of the ryokan was impressive and misleading. The ryokan is modern and clean but not anything like the website.

Arrived on the Shinkansen from Osaka and found the walk from the station to this ryokan straightforward and easy; even in the heat of summer. Greeted by a smiling receptionist who quickly arranged for an escort to our room who demonstrated the facilities. Room was surprisingly large, with separate living- and bedrooms. Spotless and functional bathroom with separate toilet. Effective...

I wanted to stay in a traditional ryokan and this was my first time. Getting to the ryokan was hell. It was actually close to Kyoto station, probably 10 minutes walk, and Kyoto's street is all boxy so it was easy to navigate. But the ryokan is small and the taxi driver doesn't know where it is he had to...

We were a bit surprised when entering this ryokan, because their internet site had given us the impression of a very new and upscale kind of place.

Staying in Shimogyo-ku

Neighbourhood Profile
Shimogyo-ku
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.
