Stayed 2 nights in May 2017
Excellent. Would definitely recommend if you are after a relaxing holiday In rural Kyoto”
My husband and I travelled with my elderly parents. We booked two rooms for two nights. Pros 宾至如归,富人情味。负责人Yumi会说英语及普通话。 环境优美,天然食材,吃自家种的白米饭及周遭出产蔬菜,鱼,肉,颇具本地特色。Yumi热爱她的工作及那片土地,让人感动。 Very friendly and helpful staff. Yumi San is lovely and always trying to help and anticipated our needs before we asked. She can speak Englash and Mandarin. Food is good, best chicken we ever tasted. They sourced ingredients locally menu varied according to season. Surrounded by paddy field, mountains and stream. Traditional tatami mad with sliding doors and futon. Simply lovely. Cons Quite far to travel if not driving. We have to take train from Kyoto to Sodobe stop, that takes 40 min and from train station to ryokan is another 50 min. However Yumi San will pick up and set off from Sonobe if arrange in advance. She also drove us to the village and back. Shared bathroom, have to arrange bath time in advance, that's not an issue during our stay.

A Wonderful Experience”
Food, Staff, Ambiance of Hotel
We really enjoyed our stay. The staff went out of their way, to the extent of taking us to a museum within our interest area, on our way to the hotel. The food was amazing, and presented beautifully.

The Heights of Hospitality”
The hospitality and generosity of the family owners, and the amazing, delicious meals were definite highlights of my experience!
I had an amazing experience at Kigusuriya. Having stayed at numerous Japanese and Western-style hotels throughout Japan over the years, Kigusuriya stands out as a special, unique experience. The family that owns this historic building cares for their customers to a degree far beyond the necessary expectations of hospitality. I learned much from them of local culture, customs, food, and to a broader extent the history of Kyoto and even Japan. The matron of the family is gracious, kind and knowledgeable, and I would highly recommend engaging in conversation with her when the opportunity arises. Kigusuriya is a place of comforts large and small, and will be sure to erase any built-up anxiety and instill a sense of calm contentment. I also can't forget to mention the food, which is astonishingly good. The presentation, variety and flavor won't lose to any of the best of nearby Kyoto city --- and you get to try local delicacies as well (including mountain boar and deer!). If you have yet to experience the countryside and mountains of Japan, and would further enjoy the healing effects of the best "omotenashi" family-style service you'll find anywhere, then give both the mountain village of Miyama and its hidden gem, Kigusuriya, a try. You will treasure your time spent in this quiet paradise.

정말 친철한 직원. 정성어린 삭사. 결코 후회 없음
일단 풍경이 진짜 토토로 마을에 간 것 같습니다. 가는 길 오는 길 멀다 생각마시고 가보세요. 결코 지루하지 않습니다. 100년 가까이된 여관의 정취를 느낄 수 있습니다.

我们应该是第一对来旅馆入住的大陆人,这里基本来的都是日本本地人居多。除了交通确实有点复杂之外都特别完美~ 老板娘会英文跟一部分中文基本交流没问题,人非常nice,房间也很干净,还有半露天的温泉。是此次日本之旅最满意的旅馆。满分
