More about Hiiragiya Ryokan

More about Hiiragiya Ryokan

This ryokan, established in the heart of the old capital in 1818, offers a splendid location for strolling or shopping in the nearby downtown area. The main building is a two-floor wooden structure built in the traditional sukiya style, and the three-floor new building, while featuring a steel frame, is imbued with traditional Japanese sensibility. Most of the guestrooms offer views of the main garden or smaller gardens. Dinner is prepared in the famous Kyoto kaiseki-ryori style featuring seasonal ingredients, and each item of the course is served one at a time on carefully selected dishes. Feel welcomed by this ryokan's humble, modest hospitality.

    This was my wife and I’s first trip to Japan, so the Ryokan experience was a new one but that was the point when booking. Hiiragiya was recommended to me by several colleagues, so they ultimately get the credit for the experience which was second to none.
