The origin of the name.
Our guest house name 'Rengishi' is derived from one of the Kabuki play.
A shishi is a mythological lion-like animal said to be the king of beasts. Renjishi describes a lions harsh way of raising a cub, in which a parent pushes the cubs into the bottom of a ravine and only those which manage to climb back up are raised.
With a spirit of the cub, which overcomes many difficulties to live, we are putting great effort to offering an opportunity to know about good old days of Kyoto for more people.
We are looking forward to seeing you at 'Renjishi'.
