Rooms at Ritz-Carlton Kyoto

Paying homage to traditional Japanese design, the Ritz-Carlton combines the tradition of Kyoto with the height of luxury. Traditional futons and tatami mats are perfect for relaxing after a day’s sightseeing, while the beautiful gardens, which the rooms overlook, sum up the serenity and tranquillity that characterises this hotel.

Food and facilities

Guests at the Ritz-Carlton can choose between traditional Japanese cuisine such as sushi, tempura and teppanyaki at Mizuki and classic Italian fare – complete with a vast wine cellar – at La Locanda. After a day’s gastronomic indulgence and sightseeing in old Kyoto, relax and unwind at the Ritz-Carlton Spa, an impossibly peaceful space which offers a range of traditional treatments, and features a soothing indoor pool, steam room and sauna.

Activities at Ritz-Carlton Kyoto

As Japan’s imperial capital, Kyoto is the perfect place to take in traditional Japanese culture, and the nearby district of Gion is particularly known as a home of that Japanese icon, the geisha. Among Kyoto’s embarrassment of cultural riches are over 2,000 temples and shrines, and no less than 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, among them the gilded masterpiece that is the Temple of the Golden Pavilion.
