Heart of Nishiyama

Heart of warm hospitality

Heart of warm hospitality  

Kyoto, the eternal ancient capital of Japan for over 1,000 years, has nurtured a wide range of culture in the rich natural surroundings. It is a great pleasure for the staff at Nishiyama to have our visitors to feel the beauty of the old capital. You may choose a sleek modern western style hotel when in Tokyo or Osaka. However, when in Kyoto, it would be foolish not to choose a Ryokan as you know what they can offer you - the heart of Japan. We provide our best hospitality every season: the fresh scent of Tatami mats, seasonal flowers and plants, the best ingredients of the day and much more.
At the same time, having the authenticity and hospitality of a Japanese style Ryokan, we still keep the convenience and comfort of a hotel-like facility. Keep your privacy and feel the heart of our warm hospitality.

Message from our chef

The most important factor of Japanese cuisine is how the cook makes the most of the real taste that ingredients naturally possess. I have been working as a Japanese chef for 19 years but I still learn something new every day and improve my skills as a cook. Another important factor is to create something that is adapted to the time trend. Of course it is essential to acquire all the basics of cooking, but on the other hand, it is also important to try something new. Everything I watch, see and hear can teach me something that I can use for my cooking.
