Kanamean Nishitomiya - 要庵西富家

The Kanamean Nishitomiya is one of the ryokans which have survived in the modern surroundings of downtown Kyoto. The wooden architecture hosts only six suites which lead to a little Japanese garden with seasonal flowers. Futon- tatamis- bamboo furniture... true serenity is prevailing. Mr and Mrs Nishida the fifth generation of hoteliers in this property welcome you personally respecting the Japanese tradition of hospitality. Like the very beautiful crockery in which the dishes are served your hosts look after every detail inspired by the history of the Honeyanocho district renowned for crafted fans which have given their name to the hotel.

Beautiful ryokan with amazing food and friendly staff. We booked the room which has its own dining room for dinner. What a unique experience to have a Michelin star dinner served in your own living space! The attention to detail was exemplary. The owner was very involved in serving the meal and explaining the food and wine pairings, and he even set a specific temperature in the room for dinner! We played the provided jazz CDs while I did some calligraphy in front a huge window with a wonderful view of the garden.

Most beautiful ryokan of Kyoto. The perfect location allows you to easily walk to Nishiki Market, the Gion District, the Kyoto National Museum, and many other interesting sights. Their dining is heavenly. The staff and service is sublime.

What a lovely Ryokan, with a Michelin starred restaurant too! If you stay here, definitely eat the amazing breakfast in your own private dining room. And I recommend dinner too - one of the best I've had.

The rooms are quiet and lovely, and the inn keepers did everything they could to make us comfortable, even going home one day to find aspirin for my wife, who had a headache.

The bathroom has an amazing wooden soaking tub which is a great way to ease a tired body after a day on the town, and the architecture is beautiful throughout, such as sliding windows that overlook their lovely Japanese garden. Staying here was overall an amazing experience - Kanamean Nishitomiya ranks among my best travel experiences yet.

Magnifique Ryokan, Kasuo et sa famille sont très accueillants et attentionnés. Prendre la chambre avec le onsen privé et le petit jardin japonais. Le dîner (2 étoiles Michelin) et le petit déjeuner sont délicieux et surprenants. Une superbe expérience.
