What is a Ryokan? Ryokans are the best way to experience Japanese culture and enjoy the true comforts of Japanese hospitality and service.
Hot springs have a very long history in Japan, and they are an intimate part of Japanese culture. There are over 3,000 "onsen" ,or hot springs, in Japan. Many can be found at the ryokans available on Japanese Guest Houses.
Take the Main Exit from JR Kyoto train station. Walk straight ahead to the corner of Shiokoji Dori (Shiokoji Street) and Karasuma Dori (Karasuma Street). You will see the Kyoto Tower and Starbucks on this corner. Go up Karasuma Dori on the left side (past the McDonalds and the Kintetsu Department Store). When you pass the Kintetsu Department Store, take a sharp left down a narrow street and you will find Heianbo (a reddish building on your right side just past a parking area). Note: Please ask the staff at Heianbo for parking directions if you arrive by car before parking your car.
