Kifu no Sato Ryokan

Kifu no Sato Ryokan is an understated, family run ryokan located just a 90 minute drive from Kyoto. All rooms have been designed in a traditional Japanese style with added comforts such as a 'pillow menu' and robes.

Glassware and pottery found around the hotel are produced by local artisans and throughout the ryokan are tatami mats, made from woven soft rush straw. During your stay it is possible to try your hand at traditional crafts such as pottery and carpentry and also experience the traditional culture of Samurai. Relax in the open-air hot spring baths either overlooking the gardens by day or under the starry sky at night and feast on traditional Japanese cuisine from a menu that changes with the seasons.
