Tailor made Holidays & Tours in Japan

                                for  discerning travelers



Kyoto's most exclusive and famous Ryokan where even though it is nearly always full you will feel as if you are the only guest.

Tawaraya is a three-centuries-old ryokan located in the heart of Kyoto. Perhaps one of the finest Ryokans in Japan, Tawaraya’s elegance and attention to even the tiniest details is incredible. All the rooms are traditional tatami-mat rooms, with simple but tasteful decorations and the heated floors in the bathrooms are a welcoming treat. Guests at this ryokan have included the imperial family, overseas royalty and celebrities - early booking is highly recommended.
