Four Seasons Kyoto

Kyoto, the former capital city of Japan, has long been a magnet for travelers seeking to experience its rich history and exquisite hospitality. For many years, traditional inns known as ryokans have provided comfortable accommodations, but the city lacked first-class luxury hotels. That changed with the opening of the Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto in 2016.

Kyoto, the former capital city of Japan, has long been a magnet for travelers seeking to experience its rich history and exquisite hospitality. For many years, traditional inns known as ryokans have provided comfortable accommodations, but the city lacked first-class luxury hotels. That changed with the opening of the Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto in 2016.

Nestled in the tranquil Higashiyama district, the Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto is an ode to the city's vibrant heritage while providing all modern comforts. It elegantly weaves timeless aesthetics with contemporary indulgences, making it an excellent base for exploring the city's myriad of secrets.

The design of the hotel exudes elegance and tranquility, giving off a Zen vibe. The guest rooms and suites rank among the most spacious and comfortable, with double-height windows allowing natural light to flood in. The hotel centers around an 800-year-old pond garden, providing guests with breathtaking views from the building and a picturesque setting for breakfast or evening drinks on the garden terrace.

One of the unique features of the Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto is its chashitsu (tea house) where guests can participate in a traditional tea ceremony conducted by an experienced tea master. This takes place in the serene surroundings of the Shakusui-en garden, making it a truly immersive experience.

The hotel also boasts a fantastic spa equipped with whirlpools, a large indoor swimming pool, sauna and steam rooms, and a well-equipped fitness center. Its location is ideal, with ancient shrines and temples nearby and the Gion district, famous for geishas and maikos, within walking distance.

The Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto provides a prime location away from the city's hustle and bustle. The historic district, home to impressive shrines and temples, is easily explored on foot or by bicycle. The staff are trained in Japanese hospitality, responding efficiently and politely to requests. They can also organize cultural activities like pottery-making or private Zen meditation sessions.

Guest rooms are designed in the style of a traditional Kyoto house, featuring long hallway entrances and secondary doors to enhance the sense of space and light. They are generously sized, with stylish touches like washi-paper lamps and custom-made Four Seasons beds. Modern décor, neutral color schemes, and dark hardwood floors bring these rooms into the 21st century. The bathrooms are luxurious, featuring marble and granite fixtures, deep tubs, rain showers, and complimentary luxury toiletries.

When it comes to dining, guests don't need to step outside the hotel. Sushi Wakon, overseen by renowned chef Rei Masuda, offers fresh seafood and delicacies. The first-floor Brasserie serves seasonal dishes with local themes and offers a great selection of Japanese beers and rare sakes.

In conclusion, Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto is more than just a place to stay; it's an experience that beautifully combines tradition and luxury.
