The Garden Path and the Lights of the Tea House

We developed a concept of “Exploring the Essential Value of Japan”, the essence of which centers on the hospitality of the tea ceremony, to create a relaxing and healing space to warmly welcome guests along the path and into our tea garden.
The soft glow of Japanese lanterns will light up your once-in-a-lifetime journey.
In a center of traditional Japanese culture, please experience a uniquely Kyoto-style world view and the finest hospitality.




Inspired by the hospitality of the “tea garden” culture and the path to the tea house, many lanterns have been installed to help transport you into the ambience of Kyoto. Let them guide you as you enjoy exploring the dimly-lit path and enjoy the travel sequence from the “tea garden” world; leaving the outside world behind, as if wending your way along a remote mountain trail.


Guest rooms

Japan's functional beauty

Enjoy lantern illumination and a “toolbox” that comes complete with a snugly concealed tea set and fixtures which doubles up as a table. What we strove to express was “Yo no Bi”, the ‘beauty of functionality’ that reflects the Japanese value of finding beauty in the simplest of tools. There is no better spot in which to relax and simply enjoy the passing of time while admiring the garden view.




A memorable "taste"
experience of the trip.

Japanese breakfast prepared in buffet style that includes rice produced in Kyoto and miso soup with Kyoto-style miso, Nanzenji tofu and others made by a local long-established tofu shop, Kyoto- syle obanzai, Japanese pickes, and so on. From 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm, the restaurant area operates as a complimentary cafe for hotel guests. Guests enjoy coffee and tea free of charge.


Located about 9 minutes on foot from Gojo Station on the Subway Karasuma Line,
the hotel is situated ideally for sightseeing and business.



Kyoto sightseeing

One of the inclusions in the World Heritage “Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto”, Nishi Honganji Temple and mere minutes away on foot lie the important cultural property of Higashi Honganji Temple and Shoseien Garden, a designated spot of natural scenic beauty.
