WHY WE LOVE THIS HOTEL

  • Aesthetics: TheNishimuraya Honkan embodies the ryokan spirit of simple and comfortable yet painstakingly detailed décor, and a portion was even designed by master sukiya-style architect Masaya Hirata in the 1960s.
  • Location: Kinosaki has enjoyed a reputation as a hot spring town throughout Japan for hundreds of years, and guests of the Nishimuraya Honkan enjoy free access to all of the town's seven public onsen hot springs.
  • Garden: The traditional wooden buildings are centered on the hotel’s meticulously curated Japanese garden, which is certain to inspire awe.

DETAILED DECRIPTION

Located a short distance from Kyoto lies the Nishimuraya Honkan in a rural Japanese setting. This polished ryokan inn features a number of traditional rooms with tatami mat floors, chabudai dining tables, and sliding paper doors. Many are even fitted with private open-air hot tubs and views of the hotel’s elegant garden. Meticulously crafted meals are served in the comfort of one's accommodation for breakfast, and dinner and futon beds are rolled out at night. There are also three types of hot spring tubs, a lobby lounge, and a museum on site for guests to enjoy. Guests of the Nishimuraya Honkan are given full access to the spa at its sister hotel, the Nishimuraya Shogetsutei, which is but a ten-minute walk away, as are all of the seven Kinosaki Onsen Hot Springs. Whether guests choose to spend their days jumping between different hot springs or simply lounging in the comfort of their room, peace of mind is virtually guaranteed at the Nishimuraya Honkan.
