Walking up a lush approach leading to Sanzen-in Temple feeling the gentle breeze from the clear stream alongside, you'll see a quaint rokan named Gyozan-en standing as if it melts into the tranquil nature of Ohara. It's not gorgeous nor prestigious, but ideal for those who want to taste the atmosphere of untouched Japanese traditional wooden architecture as it is. And yet, for it stands at the foot of a mountain apart from center of Kyoto city, guests can fully relax being nestled among its natural beauty of each season.
Because of its beautiful gardens and historic architecture, Sanzen-in is one of the top sightseeing spots in Kyoto, and many people visit here and surrounding temples. But after sun goes down, the whole area is enveloped with silence and darkness of the mountain. Unlike other onsen areas, in Ohara, there are no where to go after dinner. No bars and no convenience stores. Guests can of course order alcoholic drinks and have a private party in the room. But, remember, the next day, you'll be back downtown again. it's not so bad to spend a night sipping sake bit by bit thinking about the history of Kyoto that has been passed down for well over a millennium. We recommend you to wake up early and take a short walk before breakfast.

Staying at a Traditional Japanese Ryokan would be an unforgettable experience for the rest of your life. But, unlike other modern hotels, you might find it difficult booking it yourself due to their unique reservation method and language barrier. Even if they have an English page, its information volume is usually too minimum and imperfect to understand. Accordingly, your reservation needs to be handled properly by people knowledgeable to their system like us. Japanesque.xyz promises to handle your bookings adequately as a medium to connect you and ryokans. Even in case that there is no availability at the Ryokan you selected, we will propose some alternatives of the same grade in stead.
Language Assistance Service
Sooner or later, the first trouble you will face in Japan would be the language barrier. Most people in Japan are not fluent in English, and if they do speak it is mostly with a cursory understanding, kind of like an American high school graduate's knowledge of Spanish. Older people mostly have much poorer English skills than young people. Outside of the busiest areas of Tokyo and Kyoto, you will find that most people will not be as responsive to "Hello" and "Excuse me", and may shy away if they think that you know no Japanese at all. Generally, Japan is a very friendly place for travelers, and everyone is always willing to lend a helping hand. However, It does not mean that you are released from the language problems you will face in various situations while you stay in Japan. For instance; 1. Restaurants never have English menus and waitresses do not speak English, 2. Ticket vending machines at restaurants have no English explanation, 3. Can't easily find the way to your destination when you get lost, 4. Can't correctly tell clerks what item you are looking for 5. Can't exactly tell people your symptoms when you suddenly get ill, etc, etc.. Accommodation Japanesque's LANGUAGE ASSISTANCE SERVICE would be your best solution for building smoother yet instant mutual understanding with non-English-speaking people at any situations. All you have to do is just call and tell us what you want to tell the person you are trying to communicate with. We will translate your words for you and solve your language barrier problem at once.
