Kyoto ryokan Kinoe

Kyoto ryokan Kinoe



Kyoto ryokan "Kinoe" is a traditional Japanese-style hotel located in the Gion district of Kyoto. Gion is one of Kyoto’s most historic areas, and is famous for being "the district of Geisha".

The hotel is located near popular landmarks such as the Yasaka Shrine, Kodai-ji Temple, Kennin-ji Temple (which is the first Zen Temple in Japan), Ninen-zaka, Sannen-zaka and Kiyomizu Temple. These places are, in addition to their cultural significance, exquisitely beautiful sights in their own right.

For dinner, Kinoe provides delicious, traditional cuisine that encapsulates the beauty of the Japanese seasons. Kinoe welcomes you with supreme “Omotenashi”, which translates into English as “sincere hospitality”.
