Toshiharu Ryokan, a traditional Japanese style inn
In Kyoto, I really want to stay at an inn with reminiscence of an ancient capital Kyoto.
Toshiharu Ryokan, 6 min. walk away from YUMEYAKATA, is a traditional Japanese style inn built in the late Meiji period, which is listed as the registered tangible cultural property.
Through the lane paved with stepping stones between the gate and the entrance of the main building, flowering plants welcome you.
The room shown in the picture is called “Take-no-ma” on the second floor of the main building.
“Share-boku,” a eye-catching pillar, was introduced in the NHK TV program!
After check-in, powdered tea and Japanese-style sweets created for the season are served.
It’s a glad hospitality with a finest feeling of Kyoto.
You can view an inner court from the veranda of the room.
A large lantern is attractive!
The photo was taken on July 22, 2015. Vividly green after the end of the rainy season is beautiful. The well-lighted inner court has the beautiful ray of sunshine filtering through the branches of tree. It is a favorite of the hostess of Toshiharu Ryokan.
From the evening the inner court is light up. You can leisurely enjoy viewing the garden during the relaxing time before going to bed.
The bath room is made of fragrant white cedar, by the way.
You can add breakfast on your request.
The selection of an inn has a big effect on the level of satisfaction.
Without doubt your stay at “Toshiharu Ryokan” with a refined elegance of Kyoto will be an unforgettable nice memory.
