Arashiyama Onsen Ryokan Sai Shiki no Yado Hanarekku

Based on the concept of a ryokan that can be enjoyed with all five senses, this ryokan expresses the charm of Arashiyama in a variety of ways.
You can enjoy the nature, townscape, food, and hot springs of Arashiyama to your heart's content.

Restful guest rooms with a calm atmosphere

Rooms are softly lit and have a relaxed atmosphere.
In particular, "Yamakaian ", newly established in March 2019, is a special room with an open-air hot spring bath.
"We want you to relax and forget about the time ", so there are no clocks or watches in the rooms.

Kyoto cuisine that is filled with the chef's passion

"Hanarekku "is a ryokan that is very particular about food.
For example, our chef visits the Kyoto Central Wholesale Market every day to examine the ingredients.
He says that since he receives many requests from his customers, he walks around on his own feet to see the ingredients with his own eyes so that he can meet their requests.

That is why the dishes are made to be savored without missing the most delicious moments of the season's ingredients.
The chef himself also selects the tableware by visiting the site. "He says that just as in the case of fish, you have to look at a lot of dishes to develop a good sense of taste. "

Arashiyama Onsen (hot spring) with 100% source

"There is an indoor bath with open-air bath ""an open-air bath with a view ""a private open-air bath "where you can enjoy a variety of bathtubs.

Arashiyama Identification

This is a historic ryokan established in 1969.
"We value the spirit of "Once in a lifetime, once in a lifetime "," and our small number of rooms (11 in all) allows us to provide attentive hospitality.

From historic Japanese-style rooms to modern Japanese and Western-style rooms

Most of the guest rooms are Japanese-style rooms that can only be found in historic ryokans.
Many rooms are equipped with an open-air hot spring bath so that guests can enjoy the view of Arashiyama and the courtyard while soaking in the bathtub.

We also recommend the high-grade Japanese/Western style room with a more spectacular view [Senshin ]

The room with the best view has a large window in the position where you can see the open-air hot spring bath and the bed.
Japanese elements such as tatami mats and Western elements such as modern furniture and chicly finished washstands coexist beautifully.


There is also a villa with a modern atmosphere in an annex a short distance away.
It is a room where you can feel at home with a living room, kitchen, refrigerator, and microwave oven.

The presentation of the dishes is also seasonal and meticulous, making them pleasurable not only to the palate but also to the eyes.

Spacious large bathroom

In addition to the open-air baths in the guest rooms, there is also a large public bath.

The only "free-flowing "hot-spring water in Arashiyama

"Kake-sashi "means that new hot water is added to the bathtub without returning the overflowing water from the bathtub.
The fresh hot water always flows into the baths, allowing you to enjoy the full benefits of the hot spring water.

Arashizuki no Yu uses deep underground water, which is rich in minerals and makes your skin smooth and smooth.
Arashizuki is the only place where you can enjoy Arashiyama's hot spring water, which is rich in beneficial effects, flowing freely.

Seasonal cuisine in the Arashi Tsuki style

To draw out the best from the ingredients, the appropriate cooking method is chosen for each ingredient.
The serving style is also attractive, with dishes that are both pretty and bold and glamorous, and are elaborately designed to match the food.

Heartfelt hospitality is well received.

When I look at the reviews of those who have stayed at Storm Moon, I notice that "I am very impressed with the attention to detail ".
