    by

    This wonderful place is a mix between a Japanese farmhouse museum and perfectly clean Japanese guest house. Especially the remote house with single Japanese rooms with common bath is a Japanese dream - located in a temple like garden inside a residential area - if you open the Japanese window you look into the garden hear the vibrating sounds of the forests nearby. You reach this ryokan with bus number 8 from Shijo (subway crossing), or with Takao bus from Kyoto station in 30-40 minutes (last bus 20h55/21h00, first bus from ryokan around 7h00). You can also use the Fukuouji bus stop, which is served by 4 or 5 bus lines (e. g. bus line 26 from Kyoto station), and then walk about 500m-1km following the road towards Takao valley. When I arrived, I was welcomed with a wonderful cup of Japanese Green Tea and a japanese soft/filled biscuit.

    Unique Quality: Free WLAN internet access
    Wonderful garden
    Genuine Japanese farm house architecture
    Perfectly calm at the border to the nature

    Directions: North West of Kyoto, valley towards Takao (Bus line 8). Near Ritsumeikan University and Rouanji Temple.

Decent Ryokan in Kyoto

by rusellee

My cousin and I (from New York City) will be visiting Kyoto 3/12-3/14 and would like assistance in selecting a ryokan for our stay there. Also, any tips on what we should squeeze in during our short stay?

Any suggestion are greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

Hi! i stayed at the Yuhara Ryokan. It is a decent place to stay, reasonable rates, nice owner and is on the bus loop for most of the major sights. You can check out my accomodation tips on my Kyoto page for more info about Yuhara. Cheers!

Travel Tips for Kyoto

Buy coasters

by joiwatani about At the Kyoto National Museum

I bought the coasters inside the Kyoto National Museum. There are tables inside where you can pick and choose what you wanted to buy. I think the staff are the ones selling. Not sure. But they are individual sellers with different tables. Coasters with the designs of the old paintings in Japan. The paintings are the old customs and traditions of Japan. 4000 yen

Vegetarian Paradise

by mixmastermorris

kyoto is capital of the buddhist vegetarian cuisine known as SHOJIN-RYORI

this uses bean curd and sesame seeds
as principal ingredients

you can have special beancurd meals at one of dozens of traditional restaurants around town, often featuring up to 20 dishes all with beancurd or soymilk involved ...

Along the River

by devmicha

The Kamo Gawa is an important spot. This river runs through the downtown of Kyoto City. This river is a major landmark and the one of the only places in Kyoto that has real green grass.
Kamo Gawa is a great place to walk, run, ride your bike or sit and share a coffee. In the summer you see plenty of drunk Japanese Teenage boys who want to jump in.
I enjoy the North of Kyoto City. I can climb into the mountains or sit by thr river. In the summer it is hot in the winter it is cold. You can always relax!
Nap, walk, practice your music, meditate... Whatever it is you do.
Enjoy.
Downtown you can sit by the river any time of year and drink...
The river is full of bars with balconies open in the summer and coffee shops ypu sit at in the summer or winter.
Or you can go to the shop and drink whatever you like by the river....
In the winter, though, you might want to stay inside.

Nanzen-ji Temple

by schmoopy

Nanzen-ji is one of the head temples of the Rinzai Zen sect. The temple was actually a school (founded in 1291) for this particular Zen sect. The site itself offers many buildings to go through, dry gardens, and a bit of hiking around the area. What is the main feature here is the San-mon gate - it is gigantic and apparently is known as the gate that leads from nowhere to nowhere. Zen. Gotta love it.
