My daughter and I stayed at the Sakara Inn (in the Sakura room) for 6 nights in early February. The room consisted of a large bed downstairs, a futon in the loft, a small but functional kitchen, and a private bathroom that included a washing machine and dryer, which came in handy. Our room was very clean and had everything...

We stayed at Sakara Kyoto in the Hinoki Suite and it was fantastic. The hotel room was really well equipped, very clean and there was lots of room for all of us (2 adults and 3 kids). The staff were super friendly and helpful. The location is superb, right next to Higashiyama train station and bus stops so really easy...

Our two families had a lovely stay in the bamboo and hinoki suites. Bamboo Ideal for young children with kitchenette, washer/dryer and en suite bathroom. Hinoki with loft / treehouse was fun for teenage kids. Yuko and Hahn were especially helpful to bring me to the police box and follow up when I lost my wallet on the train from...

We stayed at the Hinoki suite at Sakara Kyoto for 5 nights. It was a really pleasant stay. The room was clean when we checked in. It was spacious too. There are a wide range of restaurants nearby. There are also a small supermarket and a family mart about 3 mins away. It's located on a sheltered street that's very...

We stayed four nights in the Hinoki Suite. A beautiful timber finished room with loft space and featuring a tree trunk in the centre of the room. It is quite spacious and comfortable and very quiet. Very clean and well appointed. Loved having a washer/dryer mid trip. Microwave and hot plate made self catering easy. Very handy to subway and...

We were looking for a home-like stay that had some room for our small child to roam around. This turned out to be the perfect spot. Sakara is surprisingly close to many attractions in Kyoto. We walked to the Gion District, Kiyomizu-dera, Chion-in, Shoren-in, Pontocho, and other spots with relative ease. Chion-in and Shoren-in were basically just up the street....

This small property with only four rooms was great with a good amount of space by Japanese standards. We had the Hinoki Suite. Good location on the Metro from the main station. Easy walking to many of the main attractions. Nice friendly staff. Washing machine was a bonus mid trip.

If you are looking for a lodging away from Kyoto station, this might be the right place for you. You can reach this place from different direction, an alley beside subway station or an alley near the bus stop. I prefer to take the 2nd route because I didn't have to pass the market. I really like the bamboo suite,...

The room is located in a small sheltered market street. It starts with great smells of Japanese food. We booked a 2 floors family room. Lot of space, very well equipped (rice cooker, washing machine, toaster, fridge, freezer, microwave...).

Neighbourhood Profile
City Center
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.
