Profile: Arashiyama

Profile: Arashiyama

Arashiyama, which lies on the western edge of Kyoto, 10 km from downtown, is a beguiling blend of narrow alleys, verdant shrines, and historic temples. Stop off at Tenryu-ji, a 13-century monastery constructed by the 1st Ashikaga shogun, whose garden is a stunning example of Zen horticulture.

No exploration of Arashiyama is complete without a stroll down the legendary Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, a 200-meter walkway through a stand of vast bamboo stalks that winds towards the serene Nonomiya Shrine. The area is especially pretty in the autumn, when the maple trees turn breathtaking shades of red and yellow.

    good stay!

    Our stay was great. The room was big and it came with breakfast, they had a balcony overlooking the water. It was close by all the main attractions in the area and easy to get to by train or bus. Recommend!

  • 8.0.Very good

    Great but challenging beginning!

    The stay had a great view and the tub on the top floor was amazing. The only downside was that instructions given after check-in time passed were a bit of a disaster. We walked in with a sticky note on the table to call them without a phone number. With our only available hot spot at near midnight, I proceeded to call multiple numbers trying to track the right person down when all I had to do was go upstairs to my room and push the key card in to get in. Breakfast was great for options and other than that in the beginning, it was a great comfortable stay!

    Amazing Hotel!

    I LOVEd this hotel! We stayed on the 3rd floor with a river view, which was absolutely stunning! We stayed 3 nights, but wish I could have stayed longer. Staffs were always kind and friendly. I will definitely book this hotel next time I go to Arashiyama.

    This place is great. It's right next to the nature side of Kyoto, close to beautiful temples and monkeys, it has comfy beds, and the staff is fantastically friendly. And the in-room massages are wonderful and reasonably priced!

    The service was excellent! In a raining day, the girl in the front desk went out to another street to find a taxi for us! She also helped us book bus tickets and wrote info in two post-its. When we were leaving, she left another piece of paper with more details in case the bus driver could not communicate us with English.

    Super nicu

    The hotel staff were very nice and deliver breakfast to your door. Great location but pack light because it’s a bit of a walk to the closest JR station.

    IT was beautiful and we loved the huge spacious room. I loved the women's outdoor onsen, but felt the trees could have been a bit larger on one side as I wondered whether the neighbors could see me. My husband and I had the seperate onsens to ourselves most of the time. WE loved the breakfast but I wish they could accomadate gluten Free as I am celiac. The girls at the front desk should know English a bit better. Loved that we could take a free shuttle back to Kyoto, wish we had known about it for our arrival as it was very difficult to get there from the train station with all our luggage. It's very close to Monkey moutain and the river and we loved that too. Was very relaxing after the crowds left about 4. Quaint and lovely staff

    LOVED the location, SPACIOUS rooms, SQUEAKY clean, friendly service. Very little english spoken, however, we didn't need to communicate much. There is a spa available that I was surprised to see. It was nice to have for the first night, however the second night we just used our shower/tub. Faced river and peek-a-boo glimpses of the Togetsu-kyo bridge. I LOVE Arashiyama and wished we had stayed for one more night. Room has coffee, tea, shampoo, conditioner, body soap, face soap, moisturizers and many bath amenities. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. We pined for our own onsen setting in our room, however we are not the type to sit in our room all day. Bed/pillow was comfy and I had 2 great nights of sound sleeping. Breakfast was perfect to start the day early. Trek over to Sagano Tenzan onsen, worth the 1.3 mile walk. Fu Fu No Yu is literally right down the street from Japaning Liv, but we opted for Tenzan and had no regrets. Well, only regret is we should have gone two days in a row!
