Tips for KYOTO
Please choose the accommodations to various purposes. Ryokan (traditional Japanese inn), machiya townhouse, hotels, etc....
'How to feel the very essence of traditional Japanese culture', 'How to experience a machiya townhouse', 'Can I try to stay at a shukubo (visitors' or pilgrims' lodgings in a temple)? '
It is recommended to book your accommodation before you come to Kyoto as Kyoto gets extremely crowded on weekend and the night before a national holiday in spring (April-May) and autumn (October-November).
