Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto

Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto



Kyoto is one of Japan's best-preserved historic cities, with intact palaces, gardens, 1600 Buddhist temples, and 400 Shinto shrines, 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites from Imperial Japan's golden age. Today, Kyoto is home to cutting-edge biotech, nanotech, publishing, textiles, and education, including its top medical school. It's a forward-looking center for art and design, where artists and artisans update traditional techniques into super-cool works with the Zen spirit and the edge of now. Kyoto is also one of the few cities globally with four distinct and highly photogenic seasons, spring cherry blossoms, swaying bamboo in summer, brilliant red autumn leaves, and the blanket of winter snow – each framed by the expansive windows of Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto. Four Seasons makes you at home, close to many of the city's finest cultural assets, while secluded in garden tranquility, 10 minutes from Kyoto's busy downtown.

Discover today's Japan's style and vibe at a brand-new hotel with an 800-year-old Ikeniwa (pond garden) at its heart. Intimate and contemporary, Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto is set in the scenic district of temples. Let the Hotel help you unlock the mysteries and capture the essence of Kyoto. In its spacious guest rooms, suites, and Hotel residences, Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto blends refined, modern aesthetics and Japanese artisans' creations – including washi-paper lamps, fusuma screens Urushi lacquerware. Patterns of light and shadow play from large windows and bathrooms reflect the soothing effects of water.

Sample creative tastes in the stylish, casual atmosphere of Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto. Besides superb cuisine, the sun-washed restaurant and garden terrace on the ground floor, plus comfortable seating overlooking the garden from the floor above – offer front-row seats to the stunning four seasons of Kyoto. Choose from two restaurants, the lobby lounge, traditional Sukiya or Tea House, plus the 24-hour menu of Four Seasons In-Room Dining.

Reminiscent of the Heian Period of 'Peace and Tranquillity and Waka Buddhist poetry penned from the 800-year Shakusuien pond garden, the spirit of The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto today is epitomized in Enso – the Japanese aesthetic principle connecting the body and mind through the Enso Circle motion. The ceremonial Japanese rituals and revitalization treatments elicit the highest results in nurturing your body and mind – elevating you into meditative realms of inner and outer peace. The skincare brands have been carefully selected to echo The Spa at Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto's traditional and contemporary styles, including deeply healing local Japanese ingredients, the perfect antidote for today's modern world.
