Kanamean Nishitomiya

The Beauty of Kyoto

Kyoto's versatile charms are brought out by the changing seasons.

The word "KANAME" of the hotel name has two meanings: the rivet of a fan and the key point.Named after the history of fan making culture in the area, we hope for our guests to see KANAMEAN NISHITOMIYA as one of their key places in Kyoto.

SUKIYA, The Traditional Design

Our exquisite Japanese style hotel (Ryokan) has seven rooms, each with its own distinct charm. The hotel aims to elevate each room to its highest quality in order to bring pleasure and serenity to our guests.

The rooms surround a Japanese garden that is carefully sculpted to reflect the beautiful scenery of Kyoto, enhancing Kyoto's delicate wooden architecture within them. KANAMEAN NISHTOMOIYA is designed to mirror Kyoto's beauty, allowing our guests to feel the city throughout their stay.

Enjoy The Tranquility

They're only seven rooms where you pause in a downtown in Kyoto and you can relax and feel the tranquility at the spacious space.

We devote ourselves to offer a time that makes customers from all over the world happy, with best hospitality that we can do because it is a small hotel.
