Ryokan amenities in Kyoto
When you stay at a traditional Japanese hotel like a ryokan, you’ll enjoy classic hospitality. Breakfast and dinner are served daily and are included in your room price. Dinner can be quite elaborate, so make sure you bring your appetite. Ryokan menus often include seasonal and regional delicacies, so your meal will likely showcase the fresh fruits, vegetables and meats of Kyoto. When you want to go outside, you’ll be provided with geta, footwear that resembles clogs and flip-flops.
Ryokans come in a variety of styles. A smaller ryokan with just a few rooms is one of the best ways to meet new people and trade travel stories. The owner will be able to point out all the great things to do in Kyoto and may even be able to set you up with a tour guide or additional activities. Larger, more modern ryokans are also available, offering hundreds of rooms and an experience similar to what you’d expect at a regular hotel.
If you can’t go a day without soaking in a hot tub, book a stay at an onsen ryokan. This type of ryokan gives you access to private hot springs—and ultimate relaxation. After a long day of sightseeing, there’s nothing better than siding into a hot spring and letting your cares drift away.
