    Profile: Central Kyoto

    Profile: Central Kyoto

    Central Kyoto is just a short stroll away from the city's innumerable shrines and historic temples. For a more modern view of Japanese culture, head to the Kyoto International Manga Museum, where you’ll find over 300,000 comic books and a host of kid-friendly activities.

    Central Kyoto’s covered malls, including the bustling Teramachi arcade, make it a great place to while away a rainy afternoon; alternatively, chill out over a bowl of steaming ramen noodles in a tiny, wood-paneled restaurant or grab a beer in a traditional izakaya (Japanese bar).

      Relaxing Experience

      The room we stayed in was in the traditional Japanese style but also included Western style beds and a bathroom. It was a good balance of the culture while being comfortable and familiar for people visiting from the US. The basement included a common bath area (separated by gender), which is very traditional for a Ryokan. I found it a little awkward because males in the US do not usually bathe together, but I ended up having the bath to myself and really enjoyed the space and freedom. We also met the owners in the morning over matcha and they were wonderful. The hotel is a short walk from the nearest metro station and there are a number of restaurants within a reasonable walking distance. We would love to stay here again if we return to Kyoto.

      Loved everything about the Nishiyama RYOKAN. The staff was so nice, going out of their way to make you feel like family. Their little gentle touches makes you feel like your home away fron home. Would definitely recommend it and we hope to be back!

      We stayed here for three nights and had an incredible experience. The rooms were very nice and clean. All of the staff were immensely kind and helpful throughout our stay. And every morning matcha tea was prepared in the lobby, which was an incredible experience and delicious. I look forward to staying here again next time I am in Kyoto.
