Kibune Area with "Kawadoko" Riverside Summer Terrace Culinary Ryokan Inn on the North of Kifune Shrine


Where nature and history live

Kibune, located at the north of Kyoto City, is one of the best tourist destinations in Kyoto. The nearby Kurama Temple which is famous for its Tengu ("heavenly dog", a Japanese folklore), and Kifune Shrine where the god of marriage is enshrined, are often being visited for weddings and anniversaries photography shooting.
The Kibune River which runs right next to the property is crowded with tourists regardless of the season. Here you can feel the four seasons by enjoying the coolness on the traditional "Kawadoko" riverside terrace in the summer, the fall colors in autumn, and the snowy winter scenery.

The property introduced this time is located in a section of a long and narrow valley between Mt. Kibune and Mt. Kurama - an area that is lined with inns and restaurants, and is crowded with people who enjoy Ayu (sweetfish) dishes on the traditional "Kawadoko" riverside summer terrace along the Kibune River in the summer.

A property with an old Kominka folk house style facade and a parking lot on the 1st floor that has been operated as an Italian restaurant with a modern Japanese-style atmosphere.
There was once a cafe area with table seats on the roadside and a spacious kitchen in the back. * Kitchen equipment is now removed.
Under the stairs next to the kitchen, a corf is built with natural river water pumps in.
The floor plan is mainly composed of Japanese-style rooms on the 2nd floor. Gentle breezes pass through the room from the window facing the street, and you can listen to the murmuring of the Kibune River.

A luxurious space for spending a relaxing time in the upper reaches of the Kibune River, away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
