I spent 3 nights at the Kuretakean Ryokan and I wish I could have stayed longer! The owners were welcoming, eager to make my stay the best possible and surprised me each day with either some small treat or a short lesson about traditional Japanese culture and language. Each evening after I came home they had prepared the Onsen for...

An answer is sorry to be late. A lot of cherry trees bloom and create gaiety to the riverside near this house very much. I wanted you to watch it! Please please come once again. I pray sometime to be able to meet you. I want to ski once again in the Matterhorn, too. May you meet then? Please spend...

My home every time i visit Kyoto. A peaceful and traditional stay. This place has showed me that beauty and comfort can be found in the smallest things. Very friendly and enthousiastic owners who want to share their culture with those who want to experience them. One of the very few places with a wooden bath directly feulled with ground...

True Japanese way of living. Probably one of my best taste of local culture experience. Situated at one of main stop along Keihan main line, Adachi San's house is nested in a small neighbourhood - Get out at North Exit Chushojima station. Nearby, it has Family Mart, restaurants, a quiet neighbourhood. Perfect for those who like peace and quiet. Adachi...

I thank for a contribution. I am very glad to be able to meet many overseas tourists. Most tourists say, it "was good to experience life of Japan". We are very glad I walk calmly. I talk calmly. I close a door calmly. These Japanese customs came out of a lifestyle. A wooden building, the public bath and rest room...

My wife and I spent a memorable six nights at Kuretake an during our stay in Kyoto. This is an authentic Japanese-style wooden house furnished in traditional fashion that really added to the atmosphere of our trip. It is located in a lovely non-touristy residential neighborhood, very close to a pretty canal and a covered market with many good restaurants,...

We stayed here for 5 nights and were very comfortable. The hosts are warm and welcoming and the accomodations were just as described in other reviews. We found the futon mattresses on the tatami mats to be quite comfortable, and we enjoyed our morning pot of tea on our heated low table. A couple of nights there was some noise...

We were able to meet an Israeli person for the first time. You came distantly from the remote country. Thank you very much. I call the warm small low table "KOTATU".

This was the favourite place we stayed in Japan. Adachi San went out of his way to look after us. The bathhouse was wonderful each evening when we got home from sightseeing and we enjoyed an evening tasting plum wine and sake at his bar. The breakfast he cooked us was magnificent. We were a group of three women exploring...

Adachi-san and Kumiko-san are incredibly warm and welcoming people who made my stay at their traditional Ryokan my favorite experience while in Japan! Adachi-san built the gorgeous bath house himself, and a soak in it is a must. The bed is out of this world fluffy and comfortable. Adachi-san cooked a traditional Japanese dinner for my friend and me -...

HUTON I am glad to come to like "HUTON" which is Japanese bed. Many overseas tourists are surprised at the comfort of the pillow. The Belgian woman who stayed last night bought "NYUKAKA" and returned home. A design written to the yukata is my character. Only slightly ashamed. Please come once again sometime! I'll be waiting.

Here are the pluses of Kuretake-An. 1) The owners, Adachi-san (M) and Kumiko-San (F) exemplify the best of Japanese hospitality. They are sweet, funny and attentive without being pushy.

Staying in Southern Kyoto

Neighbourhood Profile
Southern Kyoto
Southern Kyoto has a reserved air. Though the Fushimi Inari Shrine is one of Kyoto's major tourist attractions, the surrounding nature, parks, gardens, temples, and shrines provide less-visited spaces for strolling and reflection. The Fushimi Inari Shrine itself is made up of 32,000 sub-shrines, and the mountain they are dotted across beckons hikers, picnickers, and lovers of the outdoors. Many of the mountain's off-set paths aren't frequented by tourists, and the mountain's serenity can be enjoyed at a leisurely pace. Southern Kyoto is the place to enjoy being outside, and to pay your respects to the ancient architecture and gods of the land that are celebrated here.
