What a wonderful experience of history and hospitality at Hiiragyia! We expected a very formal atmosphere but it was on the contrary elegant and relaxed, with the staff all providing amazing service while keeping a level of casualness to it and making you feel very welcome. We chose to stay in the old building for the history of the place where the corner rooms are the highlight, with lovely garden views. The new building is lovely too with more modern amenities and rooms beautifully designed. Kaiseki dinner was delicious. Very expensive but worth every yen. Arigatou gozaimashita Hiiragiya.

We stayed here for a night and we felt like at home. Absolutely worth it. We stayed in the traditional older side and loved it. The food is very special and served with care. The owner explained some of the history showed us some of the other rooms. I wish to come back soon.

A wonderful traditional ryokan with excellent services, carefully curated room decors, a yummy daily kaiseki menu and traditional Japanese breakfasts (You can also choose other types of meals if you'd like to try something else). We were lucky enough to book a room facing the zen garden and the room where the famous novelist Yasunari Kawabata likes to write from. I can understand why - you feel at peace in the room. They also really pay attention to the little things, from personal greetings by the owner herself to the way they bow before closing the room door.
