We stayed for 5 nights at Kaguraya Bed and Breakfast. It's located in the northern part of the city near the Kitayama subway station. We were only a short subway or bus trip from the city centre and many of the wonderful heritage sites around Kyoto. The century old house is located within a short walk of the Kyoto Botanical...

We stayed at Kaguraya twice, for 5 nights and 9 nights. The hosts, John and Acco, are very kind, knowledgeable and helpful. The house is in a quiet and lovely cultural precinct near the Symphony Concert Hall and Botanical Gardens and a quick subway or bus trip to Kyoto downtown. There are eating places nearby. The house is charming and...

The bathroom and toilet are downstairs. The hosts are very friendly and super helpful with suggestions of what to see around Kyoto, how to...

we were very glad to have stayed at Kaguraya B&B. The hosts were wonderful and we felt as though we were special guests. The advice they gave made our first trip to Japan quite special. I loved the location and being in a home made it even better. We were there for two weeks.

Staying at Kaguraya is really staying in someone's house--a nice, relatively big traditional Japanese house in a nice residential neighborhood. The owners are nice, one American and one Japanese, both fluent in English and very helpful. The location is good, a 15 minute walk to the river, 10 minutes from Kitayama subway station, and an hour's walk from the center...

John and Akua (not sure how to spell her name) made us feel right at home. We had a toddler, three smaller children, a teenager and my wife's aunt with us. They didn't bat an eye. It felt like we had old friends living in Kyoto that we could call on at a moment's notice.

Hosts The owner and his wife speak excellent English and are friendly without being overbearing. However, they will not go out of their way to be your tour guide unless you initiate. When you do ask questions, though, they answer everything gladly. Rooms The house is old and full of charm. The stairs are narrow and steep, the walls are...

Staying in City Center

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.
