Ryokan Yamato

Photos Facilities Map Streetview Reviews

If you are looking for a convenient and economical ryokan in Kyoto, Ryokan Yamato is the one for you! Located ideally in downtown Kyoto, we are 15 minutes on foot from JR Kyoto Station, and within walking distance to major sightseeing spots. The famous Buddhist temple Sanjyusan-gendou, Kyoto National Museum, and Toyokuni Shrine are almost right outside our ryokan. Kiyomizu Temple, Higashi-honganji Temple, Nishi-honganji Temple, Kodaiji Temple and Yasaka Shrine are also minutes away by walk.

We are a family-like ryokan, popular among female guests, young couples, and families. We have 9 rooms, all Japanese style. There are no bathrooms in guest rooms. The lavatories are on both the first floor and the second floor. The public bathrooms are on the first floor. Showers are available 24 hours a day, and the bathtubs are available until 23:00. There are soap, shampoo and rinse in the public bathrooms.

We provide Japanese style breakfast and dinner, the genuine Kyoto cuisine cooked by the owner himself.

We offer Komon (Japanese Kimono) and Yukata rental service. The prices are:

Komon include dressing: JPY4500, tax included

Yukata (for female only) include dressing: JPY3500, tax included

We also offer Kimono dressing service for guests who have their own yukata. The prices are JPY1000 less than that listed above.

We welcome guests from all over the world. After visiting the ancient Japanese capital for the day, staying at a traditional Japanese ryokan like ours gives you the opportunity to fully experience the culture of Japan.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Great location, very clean, and very nice. The staff don't speak much English, but went out of their way to help out (e.g. English instructions on what to do with the egg in a Japanese breakfast, English instructions and information in the room,...).

Some things to note: The ryokan name is only written in Japanese, so look for the green building (third on your left, it's the only one with a sign sticking out of it). The floors are wooden, so you can hear people's footsteps in the corridor if they have a heavy tread. The nearest bus stop is the Hakutsuban (Kyoto National Museum) stop (I think the 100, 206 and 208 stop there). Walk down the hill, take the first right, and the ryokan's the third door on your left.
