Arashiyama Benkei, Arashiyama

Arashiyama Benkei is a traditional Japanese ryokan located along the banks of Katsura River, in western Kyoto. It’s the perfect walking distance from the main tourist attractions in Arashiyama, making it a great stay for those who wish to explore the town.

Historically, the town of Arashiyama served as a resort for aristocrats and royalty. Today, the scenic place serves as a getaway spot for tourists, both local and international alike, and Arashiyama Benkei welcomes all guests with Japanese hospitality.

Arashiyama Benkei offers a selection of 12 rooms, each with its own charms. Some of which will include a private onsen, but all of them with a scenic view of either the river or the gardens.
The inn also offers hot spring baths of varying sizes, to be reserved for private use. Guests may opt to use the smaller, more private baths or the large baths for bigger groups. There are also two separate indoor baths for men and women.
Arashiyama Benkei is a quick walk from Arashiyama Station. Travelers may take the bus or JR Train from Kyoto Station.

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