Established in 1832, Seikoro Inn is a traditional ryokan that is located in Higashiyama. It first started as a lodging area for travelers who would come and go. It evolved to be a part of a building and has been run by a family since then.

The ryokan is a small building that welcomes people with a cozy ambiance. Guests will enjoy the touch of comfort and warmth the inn offers.

The rooms of Seikoro Inn are based on the traditional Japanese style and have also added modern touches since its renovation. The ryokan has a total of 31 rooms, which interestingly, some of these rooms date back to the 1900s. The rooms cost about 35,000 to 55,000 JPY per night, including a cypress bath and some overlooking the Seikoro garden. Guests can also try the communal bathtubs made from pine.

The Seikoro Inn gives its visitors the freedom to choose what they want to eat for there is no compulsory dinner in the inn. However, guests can book a plan for their stay, including the kaiseki meal.

Both dinner and breakfast of the ryokan are served in individual guest rooms due to the coronavirus.

The location of the inn is near historical sites like Kiyomizu, a temple that has been declared as a World Heritage Site.

The ryokan is accessible by boat ride from the Katsuura River and is also accessible by bus or taxi from the Kawaramachi-gojo bus stop.

So good
My first stay at a ryokan. Great experience. The staff were unbelievably nice, welcoming and attentive. They made our stay feel so special. The place was beautiful, very atmospheric, clean and comfortable. We loved the garden our room looked out onto, especially the one time we had rain, and it was really enjoyable to wear the yukata laid out for us and try out the onsen. Would definitely recommend and would love to go back at some point in the future. Great location too. Pretty easy to visit a number of tourist attractions, either via bus or subway.

Amazing!!
Stayed with my boyfriend and this was an incredible experience. Real authentic Japan! The lady who served us was the kindest and so helpful,her name was Uurara.We also had the multiple course dinner in the room and it was incredible. Delicious and presented amazingly. My boyfriend used the baths in the morning and had a great time. Breakfast served in the room was fantastic and nice not to go anywhere. If you want a really amazing time then go to this place! I can not fault it. All staff were incredible

An Excellent Choice
My friends and I could not have picked a better place to stay at. The staff deserves a star. They are so welcoming, kind and friendly. They make you feel as if you were home. Location is perfect, the Ryokan is pefect, tidy and spotless, and the food they serve I just couldn't get enough of it. I would recommend including breakfast during the stay. They have two options; Western and Japanase definitely go for the latter. One of my friends was vegan ( which is not an easy choice to accommodate in the Japanese menu) yet they went above and beyond to do so. I would rate it 20/10 if I could.

Charming
We stayed here just for one night to experience a ryokan and wow what a treat it was. Definitely on the expensive side of ryokans but lovely to say the least. The staff is incredibly warm and makes you feel at home.

Excellent traditional Ryokan. Superb food and service
The Ryokan experience is a great way to experience Japanese culture and tradition. Some can be a little intimidating to a foreigner. Not this one. The owners and staff were incredibly hospitable and welcoming, the service, outstanding. This is an older, traditional ryokan in a building that is 150 years old. It is indeed a piece of old Kyoto. Our tatami mat room was large and spacious with a separate sitting area, and a private cedar wood bath and separate toilet. Both dinner and breakfast were sublime. Seemingly never ending dishes, mostly fish and vegetables based. Excellent cooking, and all served in our room by Nobu, a charming young Japanese lady who explained each course to us. A highlight was the public Onsen, a huge cedar wood tub ideal after a hard day pounding the streets of Kyoto and before breakfast and after dinner. It seemed rarely used by other guests so we had both the male and female baths pretty much to ourselves. Very impressive. We thoroughly enjoyed our 2 night stay
