Beautiful traditional style room
Very beautiful room. Feels like a room that you can only get in Japan and not anywhere else in the world. Within walking distance to Nishiki market.

The room was so beautiful and clean. We stayed in one with open air bath. Great hosts, left our luggage early and when we got back, our room was ready and they put our luggage in our rooms. Bus stop just right in front of my gate. Accessible and easy walk to many restaurants and sites.

Absolutely magical retreat in the middle of the city. Staff was kind and patient with check-in, explaining the features of our room, and letting us leave our luggage after check-out for a few hours. Grounds are tranquil and gorgeous, and the room was serene and well designed. Outdoor shower and soaking tub were A !

Ryokan experience in a foreigner friendly package
To put it simply my stay at Village Kiramachi completely blew away my expectations. The room/property is beautiful and well maintained , the staff is all very friendly and can speak both Japanese and English ,the property is located very nicely in relation to major shopping areas and the local train station. Another interesting this was that this property also offers a tasty breakfast for 2200Yen and a chance to experience a Japanese Tea ceremony for FREE! One thing I really liked was that one the first day the staff went out of their way to make sure that I knew how to get around Kyoto and showed me where the best places to tour/eat were. Lastly all the staff I interacted with all spoke both Japanese and English well (especially Naru). As someone currently learning the language, this made things easier for me when I got stuck in Japanese and I really appreciated this.
