  • Japan
  • Unusual

Kifu no Sato Ryokan is an understated, family-run ryokan located just a 90-minute drive from Kyoto. All rooms are traditional in style, furnished with low futon style beds, tatami mats and local artisan glassware and pottery. During a stay, it is possible to try out traditional crafts such as pottery and carpentry and experience the traditional culture of Samurai. Relax in the open-air hot spring baths either overlooking the gardens by day or under the starry sky at night and feast on traditional Japanese cuisine from a menu that changes with the seasons.
