For more than 1,200 years since the emperor Kanmu moved the capital from Nara, Kyoto has been Japan’s center of culture, art, and cuisine. The Higashiyama ward especially, is home to a plethora of national treasures, temples, shrines, and historic districts. These include Kiyomizudera, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and Gion, an entertainment district famous for its Geisha. Also, Higashiyama ward is surrounded by the Higashiyama mountains and the Kamo river, where visitors can stroll and take in the seasonal beauty of nature.

The hotel is situated in a prime location, concentrated with cultural and artistic facilities, including Chion-in temple, Heian Shrine and the national and city museums. The hotel is ideal for leisure travelers seeking accommodations with a traditional Japanese aesthetic and ambiance.

All rooms are arranged around a central courtyard, allowing guests to view the Japanese garden from the comfort of their rooms. Since this area was once home to a tea plantation, all guestrooms are equipped with a unique "tea box," featuring a set of uniquely produced, authentic tea utensils. With these, guests can experience a part of Japanese tea culture when they brew their own  Japanese tea.

Built on the foundation of a primary school, the new Kyoto Tokyu Hotel features an outdoor foot spa, a 78-seat restaurant and bar, an elegant tea bar, and three private baths, available for relaxing and unwinding after a long day of touring.10226296694?profile=RESIZE_710x
