Arashiyama Benkei



Arashiyama Benkei

Located west of Kyoto, Arashiyama was a Heian period country estate once used by vacationing court nobles. Arashiyama remains famous for Ukai, an ancient method of catching Japanese trout using trained cormorants.

Kyoto Ryokan arashiyama benkei's location at the foot of Arashiyama mountain in Kyoto allows our visitors to experience the beauty of the changing seasons. A traditional Japanese ryokan, Kyoto Ryokan arashiyama benkei's esteemed guests include the King of Denmark, who planted a yellow pine in the Japanese garden in 1930. Kyoto Ryokan arashiyama benkei has long been associated with the famous "Tenryu-ji" Temple located nearby.

Upon entering the gate, our guests are greeted by a 200 year old Japanese cinnamon and sugar maple. The intertwined trees were created when sugar maple seeds were blown onto the roots of a Japanese cinnamon. Since then, the trees have grown to resemble a mother and child embracing, giving them the name, "Jigan-ju".

At Kyoto Ryokan arashiyama benkei we strive to give our visitors the joy and excitement of experiencing traditional Kyoto. We aspire to be a destination that our guests return to time and again.
