Kyoto Cuisine and Ryokan SHIRAUME
Sukiya-zukuri style inn preserving its appearance of the Edo period
Ryokan Shiraume was established as a teahouse at the end of Edo period (1600-1868) and was reformed to the current building in 1949. Since then Shiraume has been welcoming many guests with Kyoto-style hospitality. After crossing a small bridge over Shirakawa River to Gion that faces the building and opening the noren (a short curtain hung at the entrance) you will then find yourself in a “Sukiya-zukuri style house” (influenced by the style of tea-ceremony houses). The building still preserves its original architecture of the olden days and very popular to stay here in the summer time to see the fireflies. You can enjoy Kyoto cuisine – delicious season tastes, and breakfast. “Japanese-style rolled omelet is cooked by the lady who has been working here for over 40 years. She is affectionately called “Mama”, says the landlady, Ms. Tomoko Okuda. Here you can enjoy a special breakfast, freshly cooked “Obanzai” (Kyoto-style home cooking) at its best.
