南禅寺参道 菊水
Nanzenji Sando Kikusui

  • Kyoto > Gion ・ Higashiyama
Nanzenji Sando Kikusui / Kyoto Gion・Higashiyama・Kitashirakawa 26


Nanzenji Sando Kikusui was newly established in early summer of 2018 in the tranquil Kyoto Higashiyama area.

There are just 5 guestrooms in the Japanese style building (sukiya). Enjoy a relaxing break as you gaze out at the seasonal views of the traditional Japanese garden and its ponds.

Kikusui was built originally as a holiday villa of a merchant back in the Meiji period (1868 - 1912), and later became a well-known inn with a restaurant. 

Experience an extraordinary stay at this inn that overflows with an essence of Kyoto.

I was able to spend a very slow time. The dinner is not limited to Japanese cuisine, and the chef-in-the-scenery Japanese cuisine is amazing, and this is the best! I drank too much wine to match it. I was so relieved. Thank you very much.

It is a big problem that there is only one room mirror in the sink. Even at a business hotel, it is natural that there are 2 to 3. My wife went kimonos, but I could not confirm my appearance, and I was struggling to dress. Is there a natural mirror in the vicinity of the entrance of the room, is not it natural in the inn of Kikusui level? Bathroom heating is also common sense now. I felt a cold feeling.

這是一間很棒的料理旅館,我的不滿意有二:1、給客人的鬧鐘分別在凌晨一點、凌晨三點大聲作響?讓我無法入眠,請櫃檯來也完全沒有什麼表示,感覺很差 2、京都夜晚只剩1、2度,浴室居然沒有裝冷暖調節器?

This is a great restaurant, my dissatisfaction is two: 1. The alarm clock for the guests is loud at 1 am and 3 am. I can't sleep, please don't say anything at the counter. It feels very bad. 2. There are only 1, 2 degrees left in Kyoto night. The bathroom does not have a heating and cooling regulator.
