Step into the 18th century at Teradaya, the site of bloody battles and pro-imperial loyalist plots. During the mid-19th century, samurai Sakamoto Ryoma (who went on to dramatically change the course of Japanese history) was a patron of this establishment, and began plotting to seize the imperial palace here. In this well-preserved tavern, you can examine artifacts relating to this famous historical figure, and also see the reconstructed room where he and his friend Miyoshi Shinzo made their dramatic stand against 20 Bakufu patrolmen. Keep your eye out for a sword cut in one of the wooden pillars, a 150-year-old scar from the fracas. Take a look at our Kyoto sightseeing planner to schedule your visit to Teradaya and learn about what else to see and do during your holiday.

特に坂本龍馬が大好きというわけではありませんが嫌いでもなく一度は見ておきたい旅館です。時間に余裕なく中をみることができませんでしたが、庭の様子などから往時をしのばせる雰囲気がありました。 more »I don't particularly love Ryoma Sakamoto, but I don't hate it, and i want to see it once. I couldn't see the inside without enough time, but there was an atmosphere to let go of the past from the state of the garden.
寺田屋騒動、寺田屋事件、この2つが自分の中で混乱していて、NHK大河「西郷どん」で、歴史の整理ができました。 寺田屋は2つの事件があったことを今回、寺田屋での拝観で、さらによくわかりました。 拝観することによって、龍馬自身の歴史や時代背景を知り、有意義な時間になりました。 more »Teradaya riot, Teraya incident, and this two were confused in me, and i was able to organize the history in "Saigo Don". This time, i found out more well that Teraya had two incidents. By visiting, I learned about Ryoma's own history and background, and it was a meaningful time.
Too beautiful. It's a amazing place to travel in Japan
Cool little piece of history! This place looks exactly the way it was 200 years ago. You can see some of the battle marks through the house. Be aware when you come in you must take off your shoes and the place is quite small so be ware bigger people you will have a hard time and will need to bend your head all the time. If you are coming with a bicycle there is some space to park it next to the entrance. Usually the guard will help you park your bicycle. It is a great historical place. We recommend it strongly!!!
