Aoi Kamagowa-Tei is a traditional Japanese inn that is more than a hundred years old.

Before its ryokan status, the inn served as a storage house that later became a training ground for the maiko, known as the apprentice of the geisha. The ryokan today has now evolved to serving guests with amenities combined with modern touches. This is a place ideal for tranquility and mind rest.

The rooms of Aoi Kamagowa-Tei are based on traditional Japanese design and Western-style. There is also a library nearby the river Kamogawa next to the bedrooms, where visitors can relax while reading a book.

The inn is a house that can be rented and enjoyed by the whole family or a group of friends. A stay at the inn costs around 40,000 to 60,000 per night including a living room, kitchen, toilet, bathroom, and a terrace by the river.

The location is near to many restaurants in the area and the oldest market of Nishiki koji Kyoto where guests can pick the food of their choice as they go along their stroll.

Tourist attractions like the Kamogawa river and the geisha district in Gion are near to the ryokan.

Aoi Kamagowa-Tei can be reached by trains coming from Kawaramachi Station and Gion Shijo Station. It is also accessible by cars coming from Itami Airport, Kobe Airport, and Kansai International Airport.

In March, Aoi Kamagowa-Tei announced precautionary measures due to COVID-19, for the safety of their guests. They have highlighted disinfection of their rooms and areas, especially to doorknobs and buttons of the elevator. The place has also been equipped with alcohol dispensers and has required their staff to undergo health procedures and wearing face masks.

Would stay here again
What a swell spot. The room was lovely. We had a nice view of the river and would have our coffee in the morning watching people stroll by and the birds hopping around in the water. Location was pretty ideal: Quiet but close to the metro, restaurants, and shopping. Radiant heat in the floors. An almost fully equipped kitchen with coffee and small refrigerator. They don’t have a restaurant on-premise (or really, anything other than the rooms) so we’d buy yogurt and things the night before and make coffee (provided) in the morning. A number of convenience stores nearby. Washing machine for mid-vacation cleaning. Handsome bathroom although maybe a bit dark for putting on makeup (or per my wife). Fancier robot toilet than other hotels. Lovely linens. The bed was comfortable but will be a bit on the firm side if coming from a plush hotel before your visit here. Room had a good sized tatami area as well. Desk staff were friendly and efficient.

Our most favourite hotel in Japan so far
This is the best hotel we have stayed in Japan so far. Location cannot be better - restaurant, cafes, shopping all around the corner. It is also within 10 mins walk to Gion where sightseeing can be done. The room is very spacious, clean and equipped with modern amenities. We stayed in a studio with a Japanese bedroom - perfect for our baby who is sensitive to noises. They provided us with a baby crib and a baby bath tub. Before we arrived, they have helped us book dinner and provided us with info about airport transfer. They also helped us book limousine from Kyoto to Kansai airport and taxi from hotel to bus stop. They are responsive to our emails and always think one step further for us. I just cannot wait to stay in this hotel with my family again!

Best Stay in Japan Ever!
교토에서의 마지막 날 이곳에 묵었습니다. 위치, 시설, 직원들의 친절함 뭐 하나 나무랄 게 없었습니다. 도착하기 전에 이메일을 주고 받으면서도 직원들이 너무나도 친절하다는 것을 느낄 수 있었습니다. 교통도 편하고, 걸어서 10분 이내에 갈 수 있는 곳도 많습니다. 관광지, 쇼핑(전통시장, 백화점), 식당 등등 정말 완벽한 위치입니다. 이번에는 아쉽게도 1박 뿐이었지만, 다음에는 더 오래 머물 생각입니다. My parents and I stayed at Room 101 for one night before we leave Japan. The stay was filled with surprises all very pleasant. The staffs were extremely kind and helpful even before I got there. I can tell they were trying their utmost to make our stay as enjoyable as possible and it was. The location was perfect. With only 10 minutes of walk you can get to historic area, bustling shopping district including traditional market and more. But we didn't have to leave the room at all. Overlooking nice stream we could easily stay the whole day in the room enjoying the view and relay. The room was very spacious and with well thought-of amenities. I would love to come back to Aoi Hotel Kyoto for a longer stay next time.

Excellent
My wife and I stayed at Aoi Hotel Kyoto for five (5) days in November, it was perfect. The location was fantastic, walking distance to Gion and many, many restaurants. Our room looked over the river, extremely well appointed. It was extremely spacious and perfect for a longer stay. The hotel is similar to staying in a modern apartment or condominium. It is not a full service hotel but the staff is extremely helpful. I would highly recommended staying at Aoi Hotel Kyoto.

Unique experience in Aoi Takasegawa
We stayed 5 nights in the small traditionnal house Takasegawa belonging to Aoi Stay in Kyoto with our 2 children aged 8 and 9. The house is better than shown on the pictures. It has a small living room with a small kitchen and is directly on the steam behind the house. Although we went in winter we sometimes opened the window to see and listen to the small stream. Upstairs is a tatami room whith 4 comfortable beds. We also particularly appreciated that there were 2 full well appointed bathrooms. The surroundings are fantastic with many small bars and restaurants. We mostly walked to main temples or rented bicycles. Aoi staff were very very kind and extremely helpful always trying to fulfill our many requests. We highly recommend this unique experience, very different from staying in a hotel.
