Hotel Overview


Central Kyoto, a stone’s throw from the Kyoto Imperial Palace Park and Nijojo Castle.

Rooms at Yoshikawa Ryokan

Each of Yoshikawa’s 8 guest rooms are traditionally decorated in the Japanese style, and feature supremely comfortable futons and traditional cypress baths.

Food and facilities

The restaurant is known to be one of the best places to go in Kyoto for kaiseki and tempura, so you won’t be left wanting for traditional Japanese cuisine during your stay at Yoshikawa. You can also have dinner in your room, brought to you by a maid in traditional kimono dress.

Activities at Yoshikawa Ryokan

Yoshikawa is a great place to experience that icon of traditional Japanese culture, the tea ceremony: the charming (if slightly baffling) result of centuries of accumulated love for a good cup of tea.
