Visited Kyoto with my daughter and her fiancé and loved this ryokan. Our rooms had river views, a/c and sinks. This is an authentic traditional experience so do not book here if you want a western chain hotel. We were delighted with the tea service upon arrival served by the charming proprietor. She made us feel very welcome and was...

I had an amazing time at Mifuku, located in a bustling area that included amazing restaurants, shopping areas and traditional temples. It was a little hard to find so make sure you bring a photo of the outside of the ryokan. I felt very attended to by the lovely staff and was treated to tea and sweets on arrival, information...

literary the hidden gem on the ponto-cho street. it's a very compact but very quite and sophisticated, and you will be treated like a special guest of this historical city of kyoto. The great food served in the guest room in the morning was much better than expensive restaurants.

Staying in Pontocho

Neighbourhood Profile
Though small by comparison, Pontocho is one of Kyoto's most spirited and memorable neighborhoods. A narrow street straddling the Kamogawa River, it is Kyoto's busiest nightlife spot. When darkness falls, Pontocho's many signs and lanterns bolt to life, making the area glow with invitations to passers-by to come inside and pull up a chair. Its restaurants and bars sprawl onto the riverbank, providing a friendly atmosphere and delicious food. Verandas are always filled with people young and old crowding tables, biting into hot yakitori or sipping cold beers. It is a culinary heart of Kyoto as much as one of its most laid-back, clamorous, and entertaining evening hotspots. Pontocho has more of an amiable vibrancy to it than an elegant one, attracting newcomers, local veterans, and everyone in between, in casual attire like sneakers and jeans.
