A historical place hosted many famous figures, hence a staggering price. There are two wings: old and new. Both are very different, both the age and the design. There's no right or wrong choice, it all depends on your own preference. Attentive service, but you can get...More
When you plan a trip to picturesque Kyoto in Japan, staying in a Ryokan is a must. Our stay at Hiiragiya-Ryokan in Kyoto Japan was unforgettable. Being immersed into Japanese culture while enjoying the most amazing food, served according to tradition in our room was...More
The Ryokan was beautiful and service here is of high standard. However, the Kaiseki dinner we had did not taste good. It was of poor quality and was not cooked and/or prepared well. For the price they are charging this is unacceptable. The main purpose...More
We were welcomed by the staff and owner. The whole experience was exceptional. Private tatami room with private Japanese bath and soaking tub. Our server (geisha?) was delightful and took very good care of us...especially for my husband who was very uncomfortable sitting on the...More
We stayed one night at Hiiragaya the first night we arrived in Kyoto so that we could experience a traditional Ryokan while in Japan. We were welcomed warmly by the family and staff and led to our rooms in the new section of the inn.The...More
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of
local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.

Your best bet is to email Hiiragiya directly and ask for the rates for the dates you plan to go. They vary based on the season and whether you're staying in the old or new wing. Rates are priced per person and usually include dinner and breakfast. Dinners are either kaiseki or shabu shabu. Breakfast can either be Japanese or Western. Book well in advanced because they only have 28 rooms and reservations go quickly. Good luck! I loved my stay here as well as the warm staff.
