Since we already had a place to stay in Kyoto, we decided not to spend the night here. So we took the private outdoor bath with lunch package. They picked us up in the Kameoka Station and driven us directly to the hotel. We started by having lunch, local dishes - there are really a lot to eat. No regret... More

We wanted to live a Ryokan experience in our holidays in Japan and it was by far better than expected! We had booked the private onsen in our room and I would do it again, because it gave us a lot of privacy (my daughter is quite shy). Dinner and breakfast were very good as well, as the strawberry shaved... More

It was my first time travelling to Kyoto! I picked this Ryokan without noticing that it's nowhere close to Kyoto city. Kameoka is a small town located around 8 stations away from Kyoto station. The hotel is very remote and secluded, they arranged the shuttle bus to pick you up from Kemeoka station and the shuttle bus ride is almost... More

The private onsen is extra but definitely worth it if you are a couple. We were picked up by a shuttle bus at the train station in Kameoka. A 30 minute ride later we arrived at Sumiya. It must be low season because the place was very quiet and felt secluded. We didn't encounter other guests, so it felt like... More

First time in an onsen and did not have chance to compare but the experience was very good. Decided to take the train from Kyoto station to Kemeoka station before taking a cab to this Inn.

This ryokan is so nice and peaceful . We arrived a bit too early to check in so decided to go out for lunch but there was nothing within walking distance. Luckily the car we rented to take us there had not left yet . We returned to Sumiya at around 2.15pm and got our room. We then went for... More

Tried Japanese Onsen many times and this is my first time to try it in Kyoto. The main building is modern with excellent food. Dinner is very nice. Breakfast is buffet style. They have shuttle to pick you up from the train station and drop you off there. The train station is about 30 mins from Kyoto main station. If... More

One of my mom's top priorities for her visit to Japan was to soak in an outdoor bath, and I was able to fulfill her dream by reserving Sumiya Kihoan's private outdoor bath called "Yama no Kakure-yu." You can reserve the private bath WITHOUT reserving an overnight stay at the ryokan (Japanese-style inn), which gave us a great day trip... More

It's a Onsen . Highly priced about US$700 per night. But service was very personal used and the weather and air were fresh. Pay a little more for private Onsen . Reservation strictly required. You can literally stripped naked in your private Onsen
