  • I came to this place on the recommendation of the Frommers guide organized by (self-) recorriodas walk in Kyoto. It is a place away from other attractions and not so easy to reach without GPS... but it is worth. Both the works of Kawai Kanjiro and Japanese traditional House are beautiful. The views of the garden from you inside, travel, pieces of pottery and wood are wonderful. It is a brief visit but enormous enjoyment by the simplicity and refined aesthetic in all its expressions.

Where to stay in Kyoto

Kyoto spoils visitors for choice when it comes to good accommodations, offering everything from traditional ryokans to luxury Western-style hotels. In a city used to receiving foreign travelers, you'll find that most establishments know exactly what to offer tourists and how to help newcomers to the area. To avoid paying premium prices during the cherry blossom season, consider staying in Osaka, located just a 30-minute train ride away. If you must stay in Kyoto itself, keep in mind that centrally located hotels charge more than those in the outer neighborhoods.
