Fantastic Ryokan. When we arrived we were not sure of what to expect but we were greeted with some tea as they checked us in. We had our luggage sent from Osaka and it was already in our room when we arrived . We had a very spacious room in a great location . Very close to the Gion subway and just a few steps from Nishiki market. Not to mention two blocks from Gion and the Shijo dori the main shopping street. We had a beautiful and delicious breakfast. We stayed there for 3 days and it was never the same . Great air conditioning and very quiet . We used the community bath every day! Thank you so much to our host and hostess who were the best !

Two Days at Kagihei Ryokan
My friends and I were hoping to stay at a traditional Japanese inn (ryokan) during our trip to Kyoto and came across Kagihei. At first, we weren't going to because it was a little pricier than other hotels but we wanted a unique experience and it most other places were already booked since we were on a last minute trip - therefore we reserved a spot at the inn. We were definitely glad we did! I didn't realize that it was literally up the street (maybe a 30 second walk) from the Nishiki Market - must see shopping area if you're visiting Kyoto. Its about a short taxi ride from Kyoto station as well (roughly cost about $10-$15) and very close to Kawaramachi Station if you're taking the train. However, the most notable feature of the stay was the hospitality of the owner. Yoko was awesome and super nice, not to mention accommodating. Her English is great as well and her/staff made sure we felt right at home in Kyoto. We opted for the breakfast option (either 7:40 or 8 a.m.) which was traditional Japanese food but that definitely filled us up until lunch! There's also a small onsen area in the ryokan as well. The ONLY downside about the inn was that it had a 11 p.m. curfew which is a little bit of a bother if you're trying to explore and stay out. Its understandable because the inn is part of their home. It was almost a problem when we were trying to get back from Osaka - luckily we made it back in time. Other than that, the stay was amazing & I would definitely go back!

Beautiful Ryokan within steps of Nishiki Market St
The owners of this establishment were so kind and friendly! We got to checkin a few hours earlier than their actual checkin time, but we were able to drop off our bags and come back once they were ready. Once we got checked in, one of their employees actually took our bags up and then proceeded to walk through the amenities in the traditional Japanese room (sorry, I forgot what our room's name was!). We got our room with the traditional Japanese breakfast meals, which by far is the highlight (lovely selection of protein, whole grains, veggies, and fruits -- all part of a complete breakfast!) It's also literally a half block away from Nishiki Market Street. All sorts of grab and go snacks and cute souvenirs.

Had a pleasant stay
Very helpful owners and a pleasant experience and stay. As others have said WiFi is only in the lobby and curfew is at 11 pm but I never had a problem getting back on time after a long day of sightseeing. The rooms are small (expected) but very tidy and clean. You'll get your own night PJs (Japanese) so you don't have to pack that. Breakfast is traditional Japanese and available at 2 scheduled times in the AM. There are very helpful pamphlets and info on attractions in Kyoto at the front. I perused this and found it helpful in navigating Kyoto. I also appreciate the help from the owner as she helped me locate attractions and helped with geographic proximities. The area is tricky as it has a lot of similar streets but not too hard to find. It's right of Nishiki Market which made for interesting morning strolls. I just want to commend the owners and the older lady that checked me in on their hospitality, utmost helpfulness and courteousness. It definitely made for a pleasant stay.

Nice ryokan centrally located in a quiet area
We stayed 2 nights at this ryokan. It was a real japanese experience. Nice and very kind staff. The rooms are great, large, and decorated in autentic japanese style. We were welcomed with tea. The service is in top. You sleep well on the futon. We had breakfast included, very japanese but also very delicious. However, there are certain dishes that may be difficult for an European to eat in the morning. They speak some english. We can highly recommend a stay at Kagihei
