We stayed here a night before our wedding. It was quite the Japanese experience in this suburban area that is very close to the train station. It was across the train station. You can see the mountains from the room. You are made to walk barefoot or with the Japanese white socks (Tabi) once you enter the hotel. That was...

This is a large hotel with semi-traditional rooms - we got 2 beds and that's what make it more modern. The room is clean, nice and comfortable with separate bathroom and toilet room. The air-conditioner works well. There are 2 meals provided - dinner and breakfast. Dinner is kaiseki with all you can eat tempura and all you can drink...

Kadensho was my first Ryokan-experience place. All staffs are kind and nice -- they did barely understand or speak English though -- and the room is clean and comfortable. There was a great Onsen so I enjoyed it twice everyday. The dinner and breakfast was also awesome; the dinner includes complimentary oolong tea and Japanese beer. If I could I...

My family and I absolutely love the onsen ryokan. The staffs speak English, and were polite and friendly. Dinner and breakfast were amazing and delicious. Would definitely love to revisit the ryokan again!

We stayed here for 5 nights and on half-board; rare combination. Kadensho is part of a Japanese style chain of hotels/ ryokans. If you are a non-Japanese speaker, keep in mind that most front line staff spoke little or no English. But do look for those men in blue uniform if you need something sorted. Think they are managers and...

I visited this resort in Jan, 2016 with a friend. It was a very wonderful experience staying here and totally relaxed for its nice equipment, delicious food and snacks, wonderful hot spring and perfect service, etc. I paid not more than 10000 JP yen for two persons and it includes one night stay and two meals. Besides, Yukata, drinks, snacks,...

This tradiontional Japanese hotel is the highlight of our trip. The 5 private family baths is the reason we chose this hotel. We stayed in Arashiyama for two nights but was only able to reserve a night here due to its popularity during peak koyo season. The facility is very clean, the staff is very friendly when we arrived and...

Just in front of Arashiyama station and a walking distance to the famous bridge and the shopping strip. A good introductory to Ryokan but having been to many others, it is no big deal. The attraction was the 5 private bath unlike many other places, only two. Many reviews mention that the food was lavish but their sister branch at...

Staying in Western Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
Western Kyoto
Western Kyoto is home to some of the city's best eccentricities. Kyoto's Saga-Toriimoto Preserved Street takes visitors back in time to the Meiji Period, where old homes have been transformed into tea houses and eateries. Pleasure boats drift down the riverbank, under wooden bridges that beckon nature lovers to hiking trails and botanical walks. The area's famously tall bamboo groves, monkey park, and impressive vistas during the Hanami cherry blossom viewing season mean that it is busiest in warmer months, though also gorgeous in the fall, when the mountains and hills along the banks turn multi-colored. Historic and engaging, even the rail cars in Western Kyoto seek to exemplify its traditional nature and scenic beauty. Many people, including natives, come to visit the 1,200 rakan statues at the Otagi Nenbutsuji Temple, which is still in use as a religious site.
