    Absolutely breathtaking ”

    Special bday occasion for my daughter & myself. Everything was spectacular & exceeded our expectations fm the kaiseki dinner to the extravagant buffet breakfast, our huge tatami room w/luxurious futon beds, & welcoming, professional staff. We even had a complementary shuttle to see fire flies! The onsen ambience blew us away; pictures on website cannot fully encompass its true beauty & serenity. The toiletries were first class quality; our skin glowed & hair felt like silk. The distance is well worth it. If your looking for authentic Jpns ambience, this is it. I was impressed how they were able to modernize w/out losing rustic feel. The most memorable bday ever. I totally fell in love w/this hidden gem!

    Unforgettable experience!”

    This is my first time to kameoka. First I was worrying the place will be remote, in fact, it's quite easy to access by JR, hotel will arrange shuttle bus pick up. However, if they can add few more shifts will be perfect ! Very nice staff. Good food, good service good place. The secret onsen is funny, you won't be miss if you choose this hotel👍🏻

    Hot Spring Experience”

    Traditional, Onsen, Private

    Absolutely loved experiencing this place with my mum for the night. No need for a private onsen if you are not a couple as the place is very private anyway. It was nice to dress up in local Japanese clothes and experience the pretty culture. We stayed one night and it was a perfect amount of time before we moved on to Kyoto.

    An amazing first-time experience in a ryokan”

    'Onsen' hot springs, the room, the hospitality.

    We were amazed by the the hospitality of the Ryokan. The staff was great and polite and very accommodating. Two of us in the group were vegetarians and so we were very happy when the staff went out all the way to make our Japanese dining experience for dinner and breakfast an amazing one. The rooms were great. The private and public 'onsen' was an amazing first-time experience.

    Tranquil place to relax and unwind”

    Private onsen, quiet surroundings, good food

    This is a nice Ryokan in very quite surroundings. I even saw wild deer from my room, and it's also beside a small stream. Do arrange for pickup with them as this place is not easy to get to by yourself. Booking the private onsen (hot spring) was the highlight of my stay as you get to experience bathing in the open among nature. Dinner and breakfast was nice but I did have higher standards. Beware of the gift store as there are a lot of things you can buy, from souvenirs to their own produced food products.

    Wonderful Experience”

    A one-night stay at Sumiya Kiho-An was the perfect way to end our trip to Japan. The location is not as remote as I thought as it is near a highway on the outskirts of a decent-sized town, but once inside you forget your surroundings. The staff was very friendly and proficient in English. The room was nice and clean. The public outdoor bath was really relaxing, and we also took advantage of the outdoor private reserved bath, which was amazing and even better that you could have it all to yourself!

    Great experience”

    Excellent service, the staff are welcoming and friendly. I stayed for only one night but wished I stayed longer! The private man-made onsen is perfect for those like me that had never tried this and too shy to have strangers around. It's a peaceful short walk to the private onsen and after that, I had the courage to try the public onsen which I also had for myself as there were no other guest at the time. Definitely worth getting out of Kyoto for relaxing.

    Wonderful and cozy!”

    It was a great experience to stay at Sumiya Kihoan! Nice delicious dinner and breakfast and a cozy room. Especially I really love outdoor onsen(hot spring). It treated my skin so nicely. Actually it was a little accident during my stay, when i was at outdoor onsen I fell on the floor then my both legs are hurted. As soon as I talked reception staff, she treated me so carefully even at midnight. She brought some cool patches and things to heal my legs from drugstore where is miles awy from the ryokan. I deeply appreciate lovely kindess and help. Definitely, I stronly recommend Sumiya Kiho An For an amazing experience in Kyoto!

    Modern ryokan with stylishly designed landscaping. Rooms are a good size. Staff service was fantastic. The hotel babysitted my cousin who injured her back during the trip in my absence, ferried her from the other hotel and checked her in early. Nice but relatively small onsen

    We only got to stay a night and it was a treat. I've been to quite a few hot springs and this was remarkable without being pretencious. It was smaller in size but it added to its quaintness. Too bad it was beside the highway. The staff and service was amazing. I would definitely come back.

    Onsen, service, traditional atmosphere.

    To be honest we didn't really know what we were booking. Pros - a fantastic authentic Japanese ryokan experience. Meticulous service and traditional food. Stunning onsen. Beautiful tatami accommodation. Cons - remote. It's pretty much a place where you check in and stay. To get out you have to take their 20 min shuttle bus then a 20 min train. And if you're not used to such attentive service it can be uncomfortable. Great experience for us but it's not for everyone.

    The Epitome of a GREAT RYOKAN”

    Staff definately TOPS THE LIST, Ambience and Food

    I think everyone should visit Sumiya Kiho-an Ryokan and experience what I had experienced. I must applaud the staff there, they were the most friendliest, kind, professional and helpful staff member I could ever ask for. They went above and beyond my expectations in every best was possible!! I even would to send my gratitude by offering a generous tip (though was not accepted) I believe they are worth every yen. The place, facilities, rooms was a perfect mix of modern and traditional Japanese architecture, it gives off a very graceful and calm feel. Finally the food was not only presented very well however it also tasted like royalty, there was a combination of food which matched every dish. I had an incredibly good stay at Sumiya Kiho-an, Since it wasnt long enough, I will surely have to visit again, I am sure there is much more to it than what I ave experienced. Great work Sumiya Kiho-an Ryokan, Keep it up!! Kingsley and Annie

    staff, food, commodities

    This is a real Ryokan experience with a high cuisine and treatment. If you are looking for this opportunity at Japan, Sumiya Kiho-an Ryokan is an excellent option. You must make a reservation for the shuttle from Kameoka, since the ryokan is a bit far a way. If you are not used to japanese food, it is not a good idea to stay there; breakfast and dinner are included.

    Attentive service, nice food & traditional Japanese style room

    The hotel is a bit far away from the city but it could be easily located via GPS, parking is available. I booked the room with half-board, we were escorted to the library for check in with welcome tea & snack, and then escorted to the room with introduction. We went to the hot spring before the two-hours 9dishes Japanese dinner, the food and atmosphere was superb, the tatami bed had been made when we returned to room after dinner. We enjoyed the breakfast and went to the hot spring again before we check out. It was really an "experience".
