I would look nowhere else to stay if you are a family going to Kyoto. Perfect central location, and a boutique suite only hotel which is truly great. Staff if friendly, professional and makes you feel at ease and relaxed. The suites are quite and...More
This was our 4th or 5th time to Kyoto and was recommended this hotel which we backed up by reading Trip Advisor reviews before booking. We were expecting 5 star luxury however, it did not quite live up to the 'boutique' luxury style we were...More
The Kizashi is a small hotel with just 8 rooms. It's a modern type ryokan. At the time of booking , it only had 2 suites and so I took them. The entrance is tucked amidst shops and you can miss it if you don't...More

Kizashi The Suite is a different concept of a traditional hotel. It is much better than expected and over ratios... Having only 8 rooms gives you the idea of care you are going to receive there. The staff is so pleased and kind that they...More
Gion is Kyoto's famed Geisha District (called "Geiko" in Kyoto). Though Gion's many tea houses and entertainment restaurants are closed to foreigners, Geiko and Maiko in their traditional makeup with gilded hair in full kimono can be seen drifting the streets on their way to and from work, where they fan dance, sing, and play instruments for customers. Gion lights up at night, when the ancient-looking streets
glow with lanterns along the river, where weeping willows catch the starlight and the air is warmed with conversation. Groups pass through to populate the restaurants and bars along the riverfront, but Gion still manages to be a mostly quiet district, due in large part to limited automotive traffic through many of its streets. Gion is a wonderful place to indulge in Kyoto's local and customary cuisines, and is best enjoyed after dark.
