HELP !!! .. Accomodation in Kyoto

by nikione

Hi,

Because of personal problems I haven't managed to get to booking accomodation in Kyoto for a trip at the end of March 'til now.
I am getting everything "fully booked" when I make a request.
Also could the reason be that I put that a triple room will be shared by 1 male and 2 females ????
It will be my first time in Japan.

Anyone knows good websites (possibly local) where to find and book ryokans and the sort on a budget (I.e. btw 5000 and 7500 yen/night/person in triple room with ensuite).

I'm desperate and I start to fear that I will have to sleep on the streets !! :-P

Cheers.

Nick

Sorry, I'm a bit confused by what you are asking. I think you are saying that no one is responding to your reservation requests. If this is so then all you can do is keep trying. Ryokans may not have staff that speak English and they are just ingnoring your reservation requests. This would not be out of the ordinary. It may also complicate things that you are seeking a triple room. Most rooms are priced on single or double occupancy, and they may not be able to explain this in English and therefore just choose to ignore you. Ryokans are small establishments, often run by a family and they don't have the resources that a large hotel chain would have. If you can't book a ryokan then you will have to book a hotel, as easy as that.

I found that larger rooms are very difficult to find. It is mostly singles and doubles. Also web sites don't seem to get updated that much as far as availability. If you can, find a place on the web but then call them.
The male/female thing is no issue.
Osaka is about 35 minutes away and has many more accomodations. This can be your plan B.

Thank you very much.

Just to clarify .. the triple rooms I'm getting are tatami, that's why they can easily accomodate up to 5 futons, so it isn't really a problem for them (however it seems they get all booked quickly).

I either send emails in Japanese to the email address on their website, but mostly I used the ITCJ website which has a "reservation request" system.

Re: HELP !!! .. Accomodation in Kyoto

the last time i was in kyoto...i booked a room at Hotel Station Kyoto for JPY6,000/person for a triple share with ensuite. i used rakuten travel booking website. the hotel is a no-frill...reasonably near to shinkasen stn and bus terminal. you can check it out.

i think there are quite a few major events taking place in kyoto end of march...perhaps that's why the accommodations are all fully booked. you might want to explore nearby cities i.e. osaka if need be.

More details on all these temples in our must see tips!

Lake Biwa (Biwa-ko)

by vic&michael

I went to Biwa Ko with my students for a barbeque lunch. It's a lovely place to relax if you need to get out of the city. Lake Biwa is surrounded by hills. It was amusing to watch my city students try to light coals on the bbq without anything like twigs or pinecones or newspaper to start the fire! They cooked some yummy meals though! Like fried noodles & vegetables, Not just meat and sausages!

Apparently in summer it is very crowded. And it can get a bit windy too. But in springtime, and on a weekday, it was peaceful.

It takes about 1 and a half hours to get there from Kyoto by bus. The bus ride was cool though! The boys sang some karaoke for us!

Dream bus, or Bullet train. I...

by schmoopy

Dream bus, or Bullet train. I was blown away by the main Kyoto train station. It was the coolest modern building I had ever seen. It is gigantic and offers all sort of amenities and is extremely clean. Lock up your bags at the station until you can check into your hotel.
I would recommend purchasing a one day pass or a sightseeing pass. This allows you to hop on and off of buses all day as well as free use of the subway system. Make sure you get a map from the transit station, map out your destinations, and then ask questions BEFORE you set out. You can see many things in one day if you have a strategy. The one day pass cost 1200 Yen; $12 CAD; $7 USD.

Coffee and homemade cakes pit-stop.

by worldkiwi about Pomme Cafe

As you stroll the beautiful Philosophers' Path in eastern Kyoto between Ginkakuji and Nanzenji, you will pass several craft shops and cafes discreetly tucked away off the path, but worth investigation. One of the more reasonably priced coffee places was Pomme Cafe. Homemade cakes and biscuits just make this place so much more charming. We stopped here on our 2006 visit and enjoyed a break in our stroll.

Nyakuoji Shrine

by Ines28

Emperor Go-Shirakawa founded this small shrine as a branch of the Kumano Shrines in 1160.
It's only a small shrine, not mentioned in the guidebooks and overlooked by tourists. Nevertheless, it's beautiful and very quiet. Standing at the base of a mountain at the southernmost tip of the path of philosophy, it gives you the feeling of being far away from the big city.
Other than the bigger shrines or temples, this shrine is open all day long.
