A quiet Japanese style Ryokan where you can enjoy the beauties of every season in a private room. Enjoy delicious Kyoto Kaiseki cuisine with the freshest of seasonal ingredients in a comfortable and intimate atmosphere. If you need space for a year-end party, new years party, or just to enjoy the time with some friends, we can make that happen. You can also enjoy a nice hot bath which is mixed with precious "Koyamaki" (Sciadopitys verticillata) free of charge. What's better than relaxing yourself in a hot bath after great food and a great time.

Starting January 2009!
