Considered the country first “urban resort,” the opening of The Ritz-Carlton Kyoto brings the brand’s fourth property to Japan.

Located in the heart of a city famed for its Zen temples, palaces and gardens, the riverside resort sits on the  banks of the Kamogawa River in Nijho Ohashi, close to popular downtown areas like Gion and Kawaramachi-dori, the city’s retail and entertainment districts.

Marvel at river and the Higashiyama Mountains from guest rooms that pay homage to the traditions of Japan, with patterned motifs created by local artisans.

Like many Ritz-Carltons, the hotel boasts an ESPA spa. DOn’t miss the Ryokucha Serenity Ritual based on green tea leaves, Gyokuro, dried from the Sun for 20 days in Uji, southern Kyoto and famed for their restorative properties.

In a city famed for its culinary offerings, The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto adds new and distinctive fine-dining experiences against an elegant backdrop.

Japanese restaurant Mizuki, offers modern fare and Kaiseki options as well as sushi, tempura and teppanyaki. La Locanda, an Italian restaurant, features its own walk-in charcuterie and l’affineur cheese cellar. Sweet lovers will enjoy the property’s collaboration with Pierre Hermé Paris, creator of Haute Pâtisserie, in a wide array of signature desserts used throughout the hotel.

Rates start at about $550 USD per night.
