A historical place hosted many famous figures, hence a staggering price. There are two wings: old and new. Both are very different, both the age and the design. There's no right or wrong choice, it all depends on your own preference. Attentive service, but you can get...More

When you plan a trip to picturesque Kyoto in Japan, staying in a Ryokan is a must. Our stay at Hiiragiya-Ryokan in Kyoto Japan was unforgettable. Being immersed into Japanese culture while enjoying the most amazing food, served according to tradition in our room was...More

City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its
blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered
shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street
bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to
peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home
