If You Have the Money to Splurge.........

by written on December 3, 2003

This is the epitome of luxury and if you feel like indulging and pampering yourself on a night to remember, Tawaraya in Kyoto is the place to go.

Tawaraya is the oldest, most famous inn, dating back three hundred years old. Many guidebooks are going to tell you the who's who that had walked its tatami floors and slept on their comfortable futons - Marlon Brando, the Rockfellers and Leonard Bernstein to name a few.

Tawaraya is old school. Wooden corridors, flower arrangements, soft light glowing from paper lamps - quite romantic.

The Tawaraya is in a very central location of Kyoto and near many sights and shops. (Heian Museum, etc)

Tawaraya is expensive at about 35000yen per person with 2 meals. But quite worth it if this is the experience you are looking for.

There are 18 rooms, Japanese style with bath.

Unique Quality: -A stellar reputation as Kyoto's best and most prestigious inn
-Superb service
-Food is sumptuous.
-The inn is romantic and magical

Directions: 15 mins by car from Kyoto Staton (JR Tokaido shinkansen)
