The most relaxing peaceful Ryokan we have ever visited.
True perfection, from the rooms the food to the personnel, it was excellence at it's best.
We highly recommend having dinner there. We had one fabulous dinner and Sake tasting that we will never forget.

Nice, clean and good location in Downtown Kyoto. Quite and nice team, but not at the standard you could expect from a Relais&Chateau. Overpriced. We did not try any service, as they were never explained or presented.

Those who delight in shopping and cuisine will find themselves at home in Shinkyogoku. Lauded and visited by locals for its Nishiki Market, where baskets of fragrant spices, dried fish, and just-fried foods are piled high along the snaking streets of its enclosed outdoor shopping spaces, Shinkyogoku is not only a hub for fresh fare, but also for fast fashion fixes. Trends-in-the-making can be spotted in the tall
windows of several one-of-a-kind stores featuring local labels and modish boutiques. Arcades, outdoor concert spaces, mega department stores, and small, enchanting cafes have sprung up to accommodate the increasing traffic. Whether looking for souvenirs and kitsch on Shinkyogoku Street, or scoping out the massive food court and restaurant floor at Takashimaya Department store, there's something for every wallet or purse, and a buyer for every item.
