Fusing old and new to create 'a modern day luxury ryokan' the freshly-opened Ritz-Carlton Kyoto is set
on the banks of the scenic Kamogawa River and is watched over by the famed Higashiyama mountains.

Within walking distance of many of the city's 17 World Heritage sites, the hotel is imbued with a sense of zen- like Japanese style, from the traditional Meiji-era house and courtyard which is part of the design to the Imabari robes and local artwork you'll find in your room. For a truly traditional experience try the serene Japanese- style 'Tatami' suites or ask about the outdoor gardens modelled after tsukimidai 'moon viewing' decks (available with some suites).


Couples will Love:

The indulgent 2,000-metre spa, located at the base of a waterfall, delicious Edomae-style sushi available at the dining room and the intimate sense of calm refinement.
