Hotel or Accommodation Features

At Risshisha, we are expanding our regional vitalization and community-building activities with the city of Kyoto through the machine. We offer a lodging experience that blends traditional Kyoto machiya culture with modern technology. Staying at a machiya is appealing because it is a different experience from a hotel or ryokan and makes guests feel like they live in Kyoto. Our machiya is located in Kyoto’s Omiya-Cho, from which Kyoto station and sightseeing spots can be easily accessed. We are pursuing new projects to revitalize the Kyoto machiya as a new form of contribution to society.

In March this year, our RISSHISHA hotel created a Muslim-friendly plan.

For Muslims that are going to travel to Japan, especially in Kyoto, now you can enjoy the traditional Japanese hotel with no worries because we are a Muslim-friendly Japanese hotel. You can make prayer every time at our hotel and enjoy some Japanese Halal menu. Please enjoy our Muslim-friendly Japanese Traditional Hotel!

Our Ryokans are Muslim-friendly Ryokans. Our Ryokans provide facilities and services for Muslim guests to stay at our Ryokan, for example, prayer mat, Qibla direction marking, Qibla Compass, prayer garment, and unique tableware for Muslims.
