Just 15 minutes’ drive from the famous Gion Geisha District, the Four Seasons is perfectly positioned for exploring the historical and culturally rich city of Kyoto. Set in the scenic district of temples, the hotel has been designed around a beautiful 800-year old ikeniwa, or pond garden.

The spacious guest rooms blend refined, modern aesthetics and the creations of Japanese artisans - including washi-paper lamps, fusuma screens and urushi lacquerware.

The hotel’s eclectic mix of restaurants, lounges and bars will satisfy even the most discerning foodies, including their unique Tea House, set in a beautiful 800-year-old pond garden. A specialist sushi restaurant serves up fresh and elegant creations at the characterful, 10-seater Hinoki counter. 

The peaceful Four Seasons’ spa offers an extensive treatment list, including their authentic and energising Sake Bath. Two saunas, steam rooms, whirlpools and a contemporary swimming pool are also at guests’ disposal. At the end of a busy day exploring Kyoto, sink into a customised Four Seasons bed in your spacious suite for a good night’s sleep.
