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.

  • This waterway connects the biggest lake "Biwa" in Japan and the city of Kyoto. Namely providing water with the city. Very beautiful in Spring with cherry blossoms.
  • Beautiful walking place.
  • A very photogenic spot. Many locals visit here every spring for cherry blossoms. There is a famous temple named Miidera nearby, and the History Museum as well.
  • 這裡櫻花季超美,粉色櫻花延水道漫開,從這裡還能遠眺三井寺櫻花,連小狗都停下來賞花真的很浪漫!
  • 附近的三井寺值得參訪!三井鐘樓(晚鐘)是琵琶湖八景之一!寺門由德川家康所贈送!
