More about Sumiya Ryokan

More about Sumiya Ryokan

While located in the heart of Kyoto City, this sukiya style lodging has a tranquil atmosphere. This ryokan was established in the early days of the Taisho period to accommodate guests that had come for training in the Japanese art of tea ceremony.
The Main Building allows guests to experience sukiya style architecture firsthand. Traces from when the lodging was constructed in the Taisho period still remain everywhere, with the lustrous floor and pillars telling a story of the lodging’s history.
At the same time, the building added 50 years ago, varies from the Main Building as it has an overall bright image and a refined structure.

Guestrooms feature a structure that allow guests to experience the world view of wabi-sabi (an aesthetic centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection), relaxing tatami-flooring, and a view of the garden or inner courtyard through the window.
During the summer, there is the ‘changing of fixtures,’ a practice which has been passed down in Kyoto from long ago. In order to overcome the heat of summer, once the rainy season is over, reed sliding doors are put up, wickerwork mats are laid out on the tatami flooring, and bamboo screens are hung from guestroom eaves to make it easy for the wind to pass through guestrooms.

Dinner will be provided in the guestroom, so guests can enjoy a leisurely meal in a private space.
Cuisine will be a Kyoto-style kaiseki course meal that primarily features fresh, in-season ingredients and Kyoto vegetables seasoned with a mild broth and which fully utilizes the ingredients’ natural flavor. And guests can also enjoy the meal visually with select serving dishes that match the cuisine.
Dishes will be served one at a time to match guests’ dining pace.

Guests will also be served a leisurely Japanese-style breakfast in their guestroom. For those interested, this can be changed to a Western-style meal.

At this well-established ryokan which has inherited the spirit of Japanese tea ceremony, staying guests can enjoy matcha green tea in the tea room every month on the 7th and 17th.

Acceptable”

Paid two days in advance, only stayed one. Not my first ryokan, but definitely my worst. 1) black mold coating the wood-slat walls of the washing room, got thick in the ceiling corners, goes right up your nose. 2) sashimi had that slimy coating that means

第一次入住日式旅館,沒有比較。 個人感覺:傳統和室很寬敞和漂亮,懷石料理既美觀又可口。店員的服務十分殷勤周到,會主動詢問我的行程,指引我到達景點的方法,老太太我英語雖然未算很好,但仍然會仔細地介紹每一道菜色。退房時會送你到門口,看到你(疑似)走錯路時,還會氣喘吁吁地跑上來提醒你。總括而言,這一次住宿絕對是值回票價。

之前住这个旅馆的时候特地查了网络上的信息,评价都是一般。但是实际自己体验下来,还是相当满意的。阿姨们都非常的热情周到,会跟你说哪里哪里比较好玩,提醒我们来的那天正好是花灯的最后一天,可以怎么一路游玩。我们定了晚上的料理,也是不错,当然对于刚没吃中饭的我们来说有可能会有一些没吃饱的感觉。 总体来说,是一个非常好的日式旅馆体验。

Very good”

우선 서비스가 너무 좋았습니다. 친절하고 배려해 주는게 너무 좋았습니다. 다만, 저녁에 잘 때 방이 좀 추웠습니다. 료칸이니 그럴수 있다고 생각은 들지만, 추웠습니다. 그리고 음식에 대한 기대를 가지고 방문했었는데, 간이 짰습니다. 원래 교토 음식이 짠건지 아니면 료칸요리가 그런건지 모르겠지만, 음식은 많이 아쉬웠습니다. 참 방에 딸린 욕조가 참 좋았습니다. 집에 두고 싶을 정도로, 음식간 조절이 가능하다면 더운 계절에 한 번 더 방문하고 싶습니다.
