Welcome to Genmyoan. This Modern Ryokan is located on a hill overlooking Amanohashidate (which means "Bridge to Heaven"), and there are views of Amanohashidate from 16 of the 20 Japanese-style guest rooms. All of the guest rooms have their own private bath and toilet. There are also shared baths (not hot spring baths) with views of Amanohashidate for both women and men (same gender only). From July 17 until August 29 there is a swimming pool available for the guests. Kyoto-style cuisine is served at Genmyoan. Check-in time is after 3:00pm and check-in time is before 10:00am. Parking is available.
Genmyoan Ryokan’s exclusive hill-top position overlooks the famous Amanohashidate, known in ancient tales as a fallen bridge to heaven. The singular beauty of Amanohashidate imbues our refined atmosphere with serenity. Inside, Genmyoan emanates by-gone elegance through our exceptional attention to traditional detail. Experience a sense of past evoked by service staff in kimono, old artistic treasures on display, and exquisite tea-house craftsmanship.
In 1393, the shogun Ashikaga came on a pilgrimage to this hill and was greatly moved by the view. He thereupon suggested the name “Genmyo” for the spot, as it means a feeling beyond the earthly or ordinary. When Genmyoan Ryokan was founded in 1937, the idea came naturally of creating an atmosphere in which one’s everyday life and cares could be left behind. The inn has drawn many distinguished guests over its history, from artists and literary figures to the Imperial family.

A truly extraordinary place to stay, with breathtaking views over Amanohashidate itself, as well as everything else you'd expect from a top ryokan. Excellent food and a truly magnificent room - enormous by Japanese standards.
