Really charming house with traditional tatami rooms. Wonderful experience, exactly the Kyoto charm I was looking for. On top of that the Inn is in a perfect location. 3min walk to metro station, 5min walk to the famous shopping arcade, 7min walk to Kawaramachi happening...More
My mother and I stayed here for a night after a horrendous day of travelling. We'd finished climbing Mt. Fuji that morning, and were exhausted by the time we arrived at Inn Kawashima. But here, we were met by a lovely man who spoke english...More
The Ryokan is located close to the main road in Kyoto and the printed instructions provided to the taxi driver meant it was found easily.
We had a HUGE room - possibly 2 rooms joined together - one for our beds & one for sitting....More
A truly Japanese property with rooms well appointed and very clean. The common bath is great as well as the lovely little garden. Though being right in the middle of Kyoto, this place is surprisingly quiet.

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.
