City Centre
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.

I chose a modern style room in this Ryokan instead of the traditional tatami floor mat room. I was quite impressed by the arrangement of the room. There was a sofa, a cozy bed with space to walk (unlike most of the 3 -star hotels in Japan where space was limited). The downside

Hotel's Favourite
Just as any other Japanese accommodation, this ryokan is squeaky clean. I liked this place because it gives us the option of having the meal provided by the ryokan for an additional fee or not having a meal at all. We had the breakfast and supper prepared and they were each

Quiet, warm and relaxing public bath. Every morning, Nishiyama gives guests a special tea ceremony. It’s worth to see the ceremony. Polite and kind persons. 료칸에 대해 처음 접해보는 사람도 괜찮습니다. 소박한 공중 목욕탕이 있는데, 작지만 예쁜 경치에, 깨끗하고 조용해서 좋았습니다.

My friend and I enjoyed this ryokan experience during our trip. The room/facilities were clean. We participated in complementary calligraphy lesson and tea ceremonies. The breakfast provided was tasty and they were able to accommodate our dietary restrictions.
