Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto

Kyoto, Japan

A luxurious oasis set amid a historic pond garden

Luxurious Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto nestles at the foot of a mountain and in the picturesque Higashiyama district, surrounded by centuries of history. A modern oasis of serenity and style, this intimate five-star blends contemporary Japanese sensibilities with traditional values and design. Set amid exquisite gardens, the property is built around an enchanting pond garden, one of the few remaining ‘Ikeniwa’s’ created at the peak of Imperial Japan and immortalised in an epic 12th-century poem.

All 180 accommodations blend refined modern aesthetics with local artisanal touches, from washi paper lamps to in-room iPads. Kyoto’s largest hotel suite, the sumptuous Presidential Suite, overlooks the 12th-century Myoho-in Temple, while the 57 exclusive Residential Suites provide the ultimate private retreat, meticulously designed to maximise ‘kutsurogi,’ the Japanese art of relaxation. Stand-out dining options include a Michelin-starred restaurant, Sushi Wakon, featuring a hand-crafted, two-century-old Hinoki sushi counter. Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto aims to give guests memorable cultural immersions, with a dedicated Experience Creator curating bespoke activities and itineraries that extend to tea ceremonies and sake sampling.
