Ryokan in Kyoto- URGENT HELP- need to reserve!

Which ryokan should i stay at in Kyoto? Seikoro, Hiiragiya, or Kinmata?

I'm having trouble deciding! Also, anyone know how to even check availability at Kinmata? Their website is only in Japanese!

Hiiragiya is an extraordinary and very luxurious ryokan which has a lovely central location and, more importantly, a staff that is easily able to handle requests from non-Japanese speaking visitors. Although pricey -- it is thought by some to be the most elegant ryokan in all of Japan -- its serenity and attentive service, and full range of accomodations, make this a superb choice. You should note that if you prefer, they'll serve you a western style breakfast; in addition, their web site has an English language version. Enjoy.

Kinmata reservation page http://www.kinmata.com/reserve/reserve_form.html will show you availability but you have to put in the dates. If you are up for the challenge you could try their form...use a webpage translator for help. Easier might be for you might be to e-mail them.

Thanks for advice. I'm wondering how the three compare to each other though.

I tried the Kinmata website, but understand how to determine availability. Cant see their email address either- that was problem!

e-mail from the reservation page [email protected]

What days do you want to stay? I can just plug them into the form if you like.
