Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

What an amazing place! A quiet oasis in the middle of Kyoto. A friend and I visiting Kyoto to celebrate our birthdays decided to treat ourselves to a ryokan experience - and what a great decision that turned out to be. Our host was lovely, making our birthday stay so special. The room - with a private outdoor tub - was amazing. We also ordered the optional Japanese breakfast which was fantastic. Could not fault the facilities or hospitality here. I hope I have the opportunity to stay again, and would heartily recommend this property to anyone wanting a special (and conveniently located) stay in Kyoto. Arigato goziamasu for a truly memorable couple of days.

This is a traditional Japanese hotel with 2 storey house.  Each storey has a toilet attached to it. The house is really beautiful and the Japanese breakfast provided is authentic. The breakfast is delicious and the fish is really fresh.

Both kira-san and the lady staff are really friendly and helpful throughout our stay and they go extra mile to make you feel welcome. Yado kiramachi stay is the key highlight of our Japan trip in Osaka, kyoto and takayama.

The best part is the location of the hotel is central so you could go yo many places of interest by taxi. Kira-san and staff goes the extra mile to check the weather and even took the initiative to call up for more infor on the boat ride in arashimaya. Outstanding service and beautiful traditional Japanese house. Overall a amazing experience staying in yado  kiramachi.

This is a must stay if you are in kyoto.

The minute we entered Village Kiramachi, down a small alleyway off a main street, we felt transported back in time. The entrance and walkway were lit with lanterns and we were greeted warmly by the staff. We were taken to our private, two-story suite where the entry level area was reminiscent of feudal Japan... replete with tatami mats, shoji screens, textured walls and beautifully crafted sliding doors and woodwork. The ground floor had two rooms, one with a lovely low table and cushion seating-essentially a dining area- and our host provided a variety of teas, water and tasty treats. There was a small refrigerator and tea pot too. Off to one side was a cedar and tile bathroom with a stunning deep cedar tub, modern open shower, etc.

Up the gorgeous wooden steps was another two-room area where futons with luxurious pillows and comforters were placed, and a seating area in the other room. There was another cedar-appointed bathroom off the bedroom with a light-filled open shower, sink and commode.

Here, no detail has been left to chance... every single element has been carefully considered from lighting to accessories, luxurious bed and bath linens, bathroom fixtures and more.

And the staff is so, so helpful and lovely... deeply caring to ensure you have anything you need.

I highly recommend this stunning “hotel”... the perfect combination of old Kyoto and twenty-first century luxury!

This is an absolutely stunning place to stay. The attention to quality and authenticity can be felt in every detail of these lovingly designed rooms.
We had a two story room, with an entrance way, dining room and bath. Upstairs was the futon room, lounge and another bathroom. A gorgeous Japanese wood soaking tub in the outdoor garden and outdoor shower. The recently constructed delicate interior was done with all traditional materials and design with modern structural necessities like soundproofed walls between rooms. The walls are handmade of earth and layered papered ceilings. We were lucky enough to meet the architect and hear just how laborious and painstakingly constructed this ryokan is. You feel like you want to treat everything you touch as precious. The room’s ambience from thoughtful design is gorgeous and relaxing.
The staff were incredibly attentive and helped with all reservations needed for dining and excursions in Kyoto. We learned too late that the most incredible 3 Michelin starred restaurant is literally right next door on the little tiny side street of the hotel.
There is a bar across the street that was still under construction during our stay but we had the chance to check it out and can only imagine it will be stunning.
Breakfast was brought to our room on the last morning, which was a nice touch.
This is a very traditional type of place to stay. If you are looking for aesthetic luxury and insight into Japanese culture this should be at the top of your list.

Remember you are staying in a Japanese style room with all the best it represents.

What a find. Being overwhelmed by options and pricing - our friend recommended we stay here. So glad we did! Tucked away in an alley off the main street, the property captures all the authenticity and relaxation in a traditional ryokan.

Upon arrival, we were greeted with a warm welcome and luggage storage. We didn’t make it back until 9pm - which the owner was still waiting to check us in (I think front desk hours are actually until 9pm so make sure to make it back in time if you are storing luggage).

We stayed in a two story room for three people and it was amazing! Two bed + 2 baths with a sitting area upstairs - yes please!

Pros:
- VERY clean with a great mix of traditional and modern (controlled AC, water temp)
- bathroom is AMAZING (traditional wooden panels + bathing area)
- comfortable sleeping arrangements
- plenty of space and amenities (shower items, hairbrush, blow dryer etc)
- excellent service (written instructions + an iPhone to FaceTime the owner for anything)
- peaceful stay in the middle of a busy city (we heard no noise)
- decor/property is traditional and well maintained

Only cons were we didn’t have a bath in our room because those were fully booked (so bummed) but it didn’t ruin our stay at all. Also the breakfast is maybe less than the traditional style offered (smaller bento box with soup) but they still bring it to you and for ~$20 it wasn’t bad (they actually gave it to us free of charge!).

If you’re looking for a pleasant stay with key elements of a ryokan but don’t have the time to make it out to more remote locations - this is a perfect fit!

Coming to Japan, I knew I wanted to stay in a Ryokan to experience Japanese culture. Upon research, I chose Village Kiramachi and what a great choice I did! It is a calming and peaceful place yet still centrally located. It is very clean, spacious and have your privacy. I loved my experience at Village Kiramachi and especially the hospitality of the staff. I felt it was my home !

Great service and great location. Walking distance to train stations, bus station and shopping district. For example, 10 to 15 min to Nishiki Market by walking. Hotel staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Such a quiet place in the centre of Kyoto. Highly recommended.

An unbelievable authentic traditional ryokan in the heart of the city. Inside the complex one would never know you are only steps away from a main street with easy access to transport, shopping, restaurants, etc. The rooms are impeccably maintained, clean and full of Japanese tradition including sleeping on futons, short tables with no leg chairs and minimal furniture. You end up with most things on the floor but our unit had a protected entry for shoes and space near the door for luggage. Keep the space organized and it’s easy to adapt. The small private patio with wooden soaking tub and second shower outside were perfect during this springtime stay. The small garden areas and walkways outside the rooms make for a continuation of the peaceful environ. The bento box breakfast on the first morning was also part of a great experience.

But more than the facilities and peace, the staff, especially Yu are so genuine and care for your every need. We needed early morning help to the train station and they made it happen. Truly a special experience.
