The all-new Hotel is enviably located at the foot of Higashiyama Mountain in the city’s temple district with numerous historic landmarks surrounding it, plus minutes-away access to Kyoto’s tech industries, creative arts and leading educational institutions. Known for its four distinct seasons and the natural beauty that unfolds year round, the city attracts visitors from across the region and around the globe.
“Kyoto is one of the world’s most alluring cities, but she can be shy in revealing her secrets – our mission at Four Seasons is to help our guests discover her wonders and experience all the city has to offer,” says General Manager Alex Porteous, who has returned to Japan to open the brand’s second location in addition to the acclaimed Four Seasons Hotel Tokyo at Marunouchi.
The light-filled Hotel affords breathtaking views in every direction, from the neighbouring Kiyomizu-dera Temple to its own five acre (two hectare) pond and gardens. Inside, guests will find 123 guest rooms and suites plus 57 residences decorated in traditionally-inspired yet contemporary style by Hirsch Bedner Associates. Four dining options include an exclusive sushi restaurant, a modern brasserie, lounge and a lovely garden tea house. An intimate spa is adjacent to a shimmering indoor pool.
Destined to become Kyoto’s preferred address for glamorous weddings, social occasions and prestigious business functions, the Hotel’s flexible event spaces include an exquisite, one-of-a-kind chapel.
Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto is easily accessible through Osaka’s Kansai and Itami airports, and is just 2 hours and 20 minutes via bullet train from Tokyo. The Hotel is 7 minutes from Kyoto station in the historic Higashiyama District, close to downtown.
