Teradaya, Kyoto
(2.5/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Step into the 18th century at Teradaya, the site of bloody battles and pro-imperial loyalist plots. During the mid-19th century, samurai Sakamoto Ryoma (who went on to dramatically change the course of Japanese history) was a patron of this establishment, and began plotting to seize the imperial palace here. In this well-preserved tavern, you can examine artifacts relating to this famous historical figure, and also see the reconstructed room where he and his friend Miyoshi Shinzo made their dramatic stand against 20 Bakufu patrolmen. Keep your eye out for a sword cut in one of the wooden pillars, a 150-year-old scar from the fracas. Use our Kyoto itinerary maker to arrange your visit to Teradaya and other attractions in Kyoto.

  • For the first time landed in the chushojima station. The station did not name to think I'll go to the teradaya. Teradaya addition to lots of attractions. Teradaya is, how to figure. Looks Lantern teradaya Inn signs. In the garden well of Edo era at the time. It was not in preschool-age children. Pay the admission fee: 500 yen admission's resembling paper money in Tosa-Han. This is kinda nice. While decorated a lot of ryoma, and Sumi-e painting is interesting.

  • Fun River flows in front of the old could hop boat directly from the front of the hotel, I can imagine. In very old buildings from the Meiji period as is, but it's also a valuable building atmosphere. In NHK's "Shinsen-gumi! ", I also had pictures of Mr./Ms. Yamamoto Koji played Hijikata visited here. Early closing time has been operating as a hotel for what is important.

  • There many people walked in the car happens to be without going to wanted's visit is teradaya character into eyes, stopped hastily parked cars. Ryoma teradaya incident is famous too. Hida Takayama became a stage of its history, but since the Meiji era buildings seems. Still the atmosphere is enough taste stop, was right.
