    About this area

    Kyoto

    Located on the riverwalk, Arashiyama Benkei is in Kyoto's Arashiyama neighbourhood, a walkable area with good shopping. Kawaramachi and Shijo Omiya are worth checking out if shopping is on the agenda, while those wishing to experience the area's popular attractions can visit Toei Kyoto Studio Park and Kyoto Aquarium. Looking to enjoy an event or a game while in town? See what's going on at Kyoto Racecourse, or consider a night out at Shozan Resort Kyoto. Our guests appreciate the ryokan's quiet location.

    The nine course, two hour dinner in a private room was amazing! The location was exceptional as well—close to the bamboo forest, temples, and Monkey Park. A great coffee shop on the corner (ryokan only serves tea!) A fabulous experience. Highly recommend.

    The service here was amazing. The fantastic staff make you feel welcome from the moment you step in the door and ensure you are well looked after throughout the stay. The onsen was great and kept in very good condition.
