Arts + Culture

Kyoto National Museum

Kyoto National Museum

The Kyoto National Museum holds many priceless cultural artifacts that were carefully passed down through the ages. Experience viewing some of Japans greatest treasures and connect to the past. It is conveniently located across the street from the hotel.

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.

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.

Family & Couple Friendly

Kyoto Aquarium

Kyoto Aquarium

This is a facility where people can learn about and interact with water resources and aquatic life while having fun, offering more than just the traditional aquarium experience.

Saga Arashiyama Museum of Arts and Culture (ex. Shigureden)

You can learn Japanese culture and Japanese poems called "Ogura Anthology", in a new way (They use Nintendo DS to experience the Ogura Anthology cards). This museum offers a hands-on experience of Ogura Anthology.

Kyoto Railway Museum

The museum is located near Kyoto station and in Umekoji Park. You will see old-style steam locomotives. Also, children can ride on a mini-locomotive in the park.

Day Trips

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.

Miho Museum

The concept of the Miho Museum is “A Real-World Shangri-La” and was created to promote beauty, peace and joy through art. Located in the mountains of Shiga prefecture it was created with tranquility in mind and the buildings designed by the renowned architect I.M. Pei perfectly fit with this philosophy as they meld together with the natural landscape. An excellent location to spend a day relaxing away from the hustle and bustle of the cities. It takes approximately 55 minutes by car to the Miho Museum.
