The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto
Built along the banks of the famous Kamogawa river, in an enviable location favored by Japanese noblemen since the 17th century, The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto offers sublime views of the river, and walking proximity to Gion- where shopping, dining and entertainment await.

Blending centuries-old architecture with modern luxury, international guests will feel right at home in this opulent boutique hotel after being awe-struck by an intimate arrival experience comprising a rock garden and waterway. Guests may expect to be pampered by all 134 oversized rooms and suites, often considered the largest and most decadent in this city. Most also feature complimentary view of the river.

Often interpreted as a ryokan, The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto features an authentic Japanese restaurant Mizuki with its separate tempura, teppanyaki and sushi counters, with a cascading waterfall as its backdrop. La Locanda provides true Italian fares in an atmospheric ambience, with a comprehensive wine cellar, tantalizing cheese room, and even a 110-years-old restored and repurposed Japanese house- Ebisugawa-tei within its repertoire.

Guests can enjoy an array of activities ranging from temple chanting, bicycle tours, zen garden making classes, art tours, sake tasting, to name but a few. The Ritz-Carlton Spa offers an extensive spa menu and features seven cozy treatment rooms, a steam room, dry sauna, a 20-meter swimming pool, and a 24 hour fitness center.

Just like a trip to Japan without Kyoto seems incomplete, a stay at or visit to The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto is often on the itinerary of most visitors to the ancient capital.
