Ryokan Tori

Kamigyo Ward, Kyoto

Ryokan Tori is located in Kyoto, 2 km from Kitano Tenmangu Shrine. The property is around 2.3 km from Nijo Castle and Kyoto Imperial Palace. The property is 3.2 km from Kinkaku-ji Temple and 3.7 km from Kyoto International Manga Museum. We loved our experience at Ryokan Tori. The hosts were incredibly kind and friendly. The ryokan itself is beautiful and calm, the facilities were really good and our room was incredibly delicate and relaxing. The futon beds were thicker than normal which made them really comfortable & the yukata (summer kimono) we were given was so cozy. Would really recommend spending some time inside, attending the tea ceremony & taking a traditional bath! Bonus: the breakfast was delicious! Would highly recommend staying there, even for just a night!

Ryokan Mugen (Adult Only)

Kamigyo Ward, Kyoto

Mugen is a property that was built 160 years ago, situated in Kyoto, 1 km from Nijo Castle.

The ryokan also offers bike hire. Imperial Palace is 1.1 km from Mugen, while Kitano Tenmangu Shrine is 1.6 km from the property. The nearest airport is Osaka Itami Airport, 39 km from the property. The kindness of the owners is beyond great. The lady sat down with me upon my arrival to review the map and to show me which places shouldn’t I miss. Since I already had some things in mind, she showed me the routes to every place plus which trains/buses I could take. Regarding the ryokan itself, my room was impeccable! Breakfast was Japanese style and it was delicious. You can also order any type of breakfast (which I didn’t do, but I saw people doing it and they all looked great too). I’d totally stay again here if I came to Kyoto a second time.
