The main building features earthen flooring, an inner garden and other traditional elements of Kyoto's Machiya style architecture, replete with great facilities in this newly constructed wooden style Japanese Inn completed in January 2016. Continually passing the safety standards for earthquake resistance, fire laws and security etc., the inn intends to create a legacy that will last for centuries to come.The resort is happy to have you use the facilities the way you want at this private lodging dedicated to serving one customer group (of two to six people) each day. Enjoy the changing atmosphere of the four seasons of Yasaka Kyoto.Higashi-Oji Dori is the main trunk line that links north to south from Kyoto Station, Shinkansen-side while detouring the centre of the city. After turning east at the Higashiyama Yasui intersection in front of the most lively place in town, Gion, you enter Shimogawaradori, a street that gradually transitions into the calm and serene cityscape of Kyoto.Facing Shimogawaradori, in the central neighbourhood of Kamibentencho, stands 'Yasaka Suijinka'.

There are several Michelin star places nearby, and there's also a famous 3-star Ryōtei less than a 10-minute walk away.

The inn was immaculately clean and was attentively well kept. They provided us with helpful information above and beyond of what we inquired, and despite it being a busy season I got a very polite concierge. Every room also had beautiful flowers in it. I would definitely like to go there again. + More

The interiors are not visible from the outside that has an exterior that's typical of a Kyoto machiya. Or room was very pleasant and had light coming in from the inner-garden. There are many famous places nearby that once can visit by foot, and the hotel's staff were also familiar with the nearby tasty restaurants etc. and they recommended us a few. With most of the tourists gone by night, the quiet stone pathway lit by the soft twilight is surreal. It's a feeling you cannot experience unless you come and stay here! The shigaraki ware​ baths are also quite calming. Thank you so much for the moments of pure relaxation. + More
