When you stay at the Gion Hatanaka, you will step into the quiet and peaceful culture of the Higashiyama people. This ryokan was originally built as a small mountain retreat for tired locals, nestled between the Yasaka Jinja Shrine and the Kodaiji temple. Many Japanese tea ceremonies were born here, like the wabicha-style tea ceremony. You can enjoy traditional Kyoto dining that has been around for over 1,200 years, satisfying both vegetarian Buddhist monks and guests from around the world. You can try their Kaiseki banquet with sake or your choice of traditional Japanese spirits.
If you're looking for the perfect place in the mountains, look no further than the Gion Hatanaka ryokan.
