Hiiragiya is one of Kyoto’s most elegant ryokan. If you do manage to snag a room at the 28-room, sixth-generation inn, prepare for a memorable meal of simmered razor clams and bamboo shoots, yuba dumpling, cod roe miso, and urchin omelets, plated up on handcrafted Kiyomizu ceramics and elegant vintage lacquerware in your tatami-mat room, in which papered shoji windows and sliding fusuma doors will transport you to another era. The breakfasts, both western and Japanese, are sublime, but western dishes like rich flavorful butter, thick smoky bacon, and strawberry preserves are the perfect antidotes for homesickness.
