Ryokan Sanki is located in the historical district of Kyoto called Shimabara. Shimabara is an old entertainment district near Nishihonganji temple in the southwest part of downtown Kyoto. It is also conveniently close to JR Kyoto station.
The establishment of Sanki Inn is more than 100 years old and is built in a purely traditional Kyoto style. We share the same unique neighborhood with historical landmarks such as Sumiya (a National Historical Property), Wachigaiya, and Daimon. They were all built in the Edo Period (between 17th and 19th century). If you are lucky, you might come across a procession of a gorgeous Tayu (courtesan) and her attendants on the street reflecting images of the past.
We would be happy to serve you in this historical environment, and invite you to savor the atmosphere of old Kyoto.

My personal definition of a backpacker is not someone who carries a backpack, but someone who just wants to save money to travel longer.
