5 accommodations in Kyoto and its surroundings with private baths

Private onsen

The dilemma often arises during a trip to Japan: how to enjoy the Onsen without exposing yourself naked in front of strangers and enjoying these moments of relaxation with your party in private? Today, more and more accommodations offer their customers private Onsen or bath supplied with spring water for more privacy.

 

Sakanoue

 

In Kyoto, in the heart of the historic district of Gion, at the top of a cobbled alley, hides the ryokan Sakanoue. Its traditional architecture, its garden, and its tastefully decorated tatami rooms make it a privileged experience, in a deliciously Japanese atmosphere. The rooms have baths supplied with spring water and it is even possible to reserve large pools free of charge for private use.

Arashiyama Benkei

 

Arashiyama: this name evokes Japan as one dreams of it, between exuberant nature and refined culture. The Arashiyama Benkei ryokan, located amidst the greenery near the Oi River, brings this dream to life.

Its 10 rooms each have a different charm and some of them offer an outdoor bath with spring water, from which you can admire Arashiyama and the river. Arashiyama's waters are famous for their therapeutic properties, and those without an outdoor bath can reserve the ryokan's rotenburo for private use.

Kyoto Yunohana Resort Switzerland

 

Kyoto Yunohana Resort Suisen is located about thirty minutes from Kyoto station, in an idyllic setting where nature reigns supreme. Its thermal waters have a thousand virtues and for more privacy, hotel guests have the choice between rooms with spring water baths on a private terrace, or the rental of the stone rotenburo in the garden (2,000 yen for 50 min without taxes, i.e. $17.50/16€). Vast public pools for men and women are of course self-service.
