Ryokan Kanade, alternatively known as Koto Heian no Yado Kanade or simply Kanade, is a traditional Japanese style inn located in Sakyo Ward in Kyoto. Also referred to as a “hidden inn”, Kanade is tucked in a quiet residential area, but still a short distance away from tourist spots.

It features a 170-year-old Japanese garden, “Sou” which guests can stroll in or view from the terraces in their rooms.

There are 20 rooms in the building, all of which are designed with traditional Japanese elements, with their price ranging from 10,000 to 35,000 JPY. The inn also offers 3 types of private open-air baths, which can be reserved in advance.

Also known as a culinary inn, Kanade takes pride in their Kyoto Kaiseki–which the chef prepares delicately with fresh local ingredients.

Kanade can be accessed from Kyoto Station then a fifteen-minute drive to the property.

The inn is operating normally with safety measures in place and limited acceptance to prevent the spread of infection.

Awesome Ryokan Experience on a more reasonable budget!
We wanted to experience a ryokan on our first trip to Japan but found so many were priced from $750 to $1500 for a single night... we asked our trip planner to see if he could find something on a $500 budget. We'd found the Kanade and it fit... and it was a beautiful experience, great staff, private onsin by reservation and include breakfast and dinner! Would highly recommend it!

Incredible
My girlfriend and I had the pleasure of staying at such a delightful place . I have been lucky enough to stay at some fine hotels around the world but this is now possibly my favourite . The host is so organised and friendly and the rooms are beautifully done . The walk into the centre of Kyoto is such a pretty one along a river and only 30minutes . After coming back you can enjoy a private tub on the rooftop . Match this with a superb breakfast and it makes leaving so so hard !

Enjoyed our stay
Interesting how polarized peoples' experiences have been at Ryokan Kanade. Ours was great. We stayed in the same room (102) as another reviewer, but without the construction next door and loved it. The private rock garden was lovely, and our room also opened up on the shared back garden, which was beautiful. Our kids stayed in room 101, smaller, but nice, with a smaller private rock garden. Unlike other reviews, we found the staff to be extremely friendly, helpful and accommodating. When our AC unit acted up, the person at the desk immediately came in and addressed the problem. Not sure about the complaint about sleeping on the floor, as that is why one stays at a ryokan. I will admit that I was a bit disappointed in the fact that the mattresses were foam, rather than futons, but they were very comfortable nonetheless. We did the breakfast one morning, and it was excellent, according not only to my family, but to my friends from Tokyo, who stayed at the ryokan with us one night. Last time my wife and I were in Kyoto, we stayed at a truly premium ryokan. Ryokan Kanade is not a 5-star hotel, nor is it priced like one. This trip we came with my mother and our two children (17 and 18), so I looked for a reasonably priced option, where the kids could still get the experience. After looking a several places, Ryokan Kanade looked like a bargain in the mid-priced ryokans, and it delivered beyond what I was seeking. I travel extensively. This year alone, I've been to Asia, Europe, South America and around North America, and stayed in everything from 5-star hotels to Super 8's. They say, "you get what you pay for." While this statement is often not complementary, in the case of Ryokan Kanade, this is not only true, but also meant to be a true complement. If I were looking for this experience again, at this price point, would not hesitate to book again.

Not great experience.
Our stay wasn’t as expected. We ended up paying a premium to sleep on the floor and did not get to experience the ryokan experience. We were expecting to feel cosy, eating home cooked meals in the room in our robes with the children running around the garden breathing in the fresh air. However that did not happen. No meals were prepared for us because we need to book 5 days in advance. Not even breakfast! We wondered quite a bit to get to a place that serve breakfast early since our children wake up early. The hotel made no exemption for us for failing to book 5 days in advance. Not sure if it was written anywhere that booking is required for meals or else u get nothing; we definitely missed that. Rooms r nice, very clean, cosy. But would not pay this much without the true ryokan experience.

Dislike foreign customers??
We just receive a private message after we made the reservation, just telling us like this.. “ Many people dislike foreign customers “ I don’t know the purpose of this message from the Ryokan, they want us to cancel the reservation or what? so strange.
