Courtesy of the floor to ceiling windows you have great views of the trees, either snow kissed in winter or in full blossom during Spring (blossom season usually runs from March to April). Room choices range from the standard Four Seasons Rooms through to the larger Deluxe Rooms.

The hotel’s eclectic mix of restaurants, lounges and bars will satisfy even the most discerning foodies, including their unique Tea House, set in a beautiful 800 year old pond garden. A specialist sushi restaurant serves up fresh and elegant creations at the 10-seater Hinoki counter.


After a busy day out and about it's good to know that the hotel's the spa is the perfect place to relax. With seven treatment rooms, two saunas and steam rooms, a couple's spa suite, a lap pool and two whirlpools, there is plenty to help restore your tranquility.

Weather & Seasons

The best and most popular times to visit Kyoto are the climatically stable seasons of spring (March to May) and autumn (late September to November). The highlight of spring is the cherry-blossom season, which usually arrives in Kyoto in early April. Bear in mind, though, that the blossoms are notoriously fickle, blooming any time from late March to mid-April. Autumn is an equally good time to travel, with pleasant temperatures and soothing autumn colours, which usually peak between late October and mid-November. 

Getting Here

Fly into Tokyo, followed by a 2 hour Shinkansen (bullet train) journey to Kyoto, followed by a 15 minute transfer to the hotel.
