Concierge recommendations

Shogo-in Temple

Shogo-in Temple is well known as a temporary palace used after the horrible Kyoto fires in 1788 and 1854. For this special opening, the temple will display more than 130 paintings displayed on sliding doors. These original paintings are over 300 years old and will make you feel as if you have stepped back in time.

Obai-in at Daitokuji Temple

Sen no Rikyu, one of the most well-known tea masters, designed the picturesque garden which is covered in an abundance of moss and breathtaking maple trees. Neighboring this is the gourd-shaped pond in the dry garden well known to be equally as unique.

Farmer's market in Ohara village

It is held every Sunday morning, and you could meet the morning's pick, fresh and organic vegetable, regional specialties and seasonal flowers at the open-air stalls and in the store as well. Not only to get seasonal and fresh ones but deep breath in rich nature of Ohara. To drive to Ohara, I do recommend you to be there by 8:30AM to secure the parking space and to use the public transportation, Kyoto bus runs from downtown to Ohara. You could enjoy a nice weekend getaway even from town of Kyoto.

Fukuda Art Museum

It is a beautiful museum with marble walls and wickerwork patterned windows. They owns the works of Japanese painters between Edo and the modern times. I was very surprised that many works are their private collections and the visitors are allowed to take the photo. You may enjoy their cafe and the view of their garden with the famous Togetsukyo bridge, the central area of Arashiyama.

Kyoto City KYOCERA Museum of Art

As it's original architecture; the oldest public art museum in Japan, was rather massive and classic, with blowing a new wind, it becomes welcoming but still highlighting the original parts. Certainly the place to visit for enjoying the arts, and also finding your own little oasis as I found one.


Sanjusangendo Temple

Located next to the hotel in the Higashiyama district. The temple contains one thousand life-size statues of the Thousand-Armed Kannon which stand on both the right and left sides of the main statue in 10 rows and 50 columns.

Chishakuin Temple

This temple belongs to the Chisan Shingon sect and offers a morning ceremony where one can experience a unique Buddhist practice in the tranquility of Higashiyama. It starts at first light so is perfect for early risers.

Tofukuji Temple

One of the so-called Kyoto Gozan or "five great Zen temples of Kyoto". The grounds contain 24 sub-temples and gardens and its main gate is the oldest sanmon in Japan.
