THE HOTEL HIGASHIYAMA by Kyoto Tokyu opened July 7, 2022. Situated in a prime location, surrounded by an array of cultural and artistic facilities, this luxury boutique hotel exudes Japanese sensibility in both design aesthetics and warm omotenashi hospitality. Guests will find their stay so pleasurable that it becomes a purposeful part of their Kyoto visit.
Inspired by Traditional Kyoto Culture with a Modern Twist
The five-story hotel features 168 guest rooms located on floors 1 to 5.
The lobby welcomes guests with original artwork and colorful Nishijin brocades.
The interior design is inspired by the shimmering waters of the Shirakawa River,
enhanced with both Japanese and Western amenities to create serene private and public spaces. For example, each guest room features a Japanese tea set (with authentic tea utensils in a wooden box)
but also a high-quality Sealy mattress and original linen loungewear for an exceptionally comfortable sleep.
The contemporary spa, on the first floor, offers three distinctive, traditional Japanese-style private baths with wet and dry areas. There are also 60- and 90-minute original oil body treatments, a 40-minute foot treatment, and combination treatments. Enveloped in the faint aroma of Japanese tea, subtly emanating from a tea incense oven, the spa offers a welcome respite from a long travel journey or full day of touring and exploring.
