Imagine waking up with a green tea as the morning sunlight peeks through the tall bamboo outside your window because, at the Four Seasons Hotel, you can do just that. An intimate sanctuary in the heart of Kyoto’s temple district, the property is the pinnacle of modern luxury in Japan’s historical center.
The hotel is arranged around an 800-year-old Shakusui-en, a pond garden that gives the contemporary property a grounding in the heritage architecture that surrounds it. In 2023, the Four Seasons Hotel earned the title of the best hotel in Japan by DestinAsian magazine, an award recognizing the hotel’s impeccable achievements in tradition, artistry, and natural beauty. The property is intrinsically meshed with the stunning scenery that surrounds it, both natural and architectural, and the Four Seasons opens the door to unparalleled seasonal experiences such as the iconic spring cherry blossom bloom.
