Staying at the hotel

The hotel has a unique location overlooking the city of Kyoto, so you can enjoy the seasonal panoramas, culture, and beauty of Kyoto during your stay.
As you walk through the premises, you can enjoy the ever-changing nature outside the windows, the 80 year old memories carved into the building, and the many works of art adorning it.

The gardens and restaurants in the separate building are also available to those not staying in the hotel. While being located in the perfect location to sightsee, the hotel is far enough from the city to let you relax away from the crowds and enjoy Kyoto at your pace.
