Yokoso - Welcome to Gojyuan

Gojyuan facade

Ryokan Gojyuan is a small traditional Japanese style guest house, built of sandstone (circa 1855) that has been in the family since the early 1930's.

A very important feature of Gojyuan is our support for Japanese cultural exchange. We hope to offer a place for regular promotion of craft and cultural workshops.

We are located very close to the central business district of Sydney, in the beautiful and quaint suburb of Balmain. There are many cafes, restaurants and boutique shops all within a 10 minute walk.

Transport to the city by bus is available right outside the front door or a short walk to the ferry will give you a lovely ride on Sydney Harbour. Our Contact page displays a map of the local area, directions on how to get here and an option to join our mailing list. You can view our rooms and tariff on our Accommodation page.

Please watch our news to keep track of our events and if you have eaccommodation/ryokan-gojyuantheatre ( noh, kabuki, bunraku ), music ( shakuhachi, shamisen, koto ) etc. and would like to share this, please contact us.

We are also on Facebook - please support us and like our page.

We hope you will come to visit us in the near future.
