- OMO5 Kyoto Sanjo
Hoshino Resorts, a hotel management company that operates over 40 properties within and outside of Japan, has opened “Hoshino Resorts OMO5 Kyoto Sanjo” on April 15th, 2021. We aim to provide a place of accommodation where the unique charms of Sanjo, Kyoto can be discovered through sights, shopping, and local food culture.
Kyoto City has a history of 1,200 years since the founding of Heiankyo, and now, it is the most popular tourist destination in Japan with over 50 million people visiting every year. We aim to provide a place of accommodation as a city tourism hotel, where the deep urban culture of the Sanjo area can be discovered and appreciated. For this opening, we focused on the Sanjo bridge, the endpoint of the Tokaido, Sanjo street full of life, and Takase River, which was the foundation for economic development in Kyoto. This property is perfect for those who enjoy wandering neighborhoods and experiencing destinations through sights, shopping, and local food culture.
Features that will fill your travel with excitement!
OMO base – Community Lounge
OMO base is a public space where the front desk and café reside and it is best described as a community space, almost an extension of the guest rooms. Inspired by the old days when boats were once manually transported in the Takase River, the hotel entrance has a table with illustrations of those scenes.
OMO Café – From café to a bar, meals to be enjoyed at all hours
We recommend the “OMOrning risotto,” which is the main meal for breakfast and lunch. A total of 5 types of risotto flavors are available such as the classic ham & pesto as well as original flavors using raw yuba (tofu skin) and Japanese pickles. It’s a healthy menu to have in the morning even for those who have had too much to eat for dinner the previous night. In addition, there is a variety of options for meals such as pizza toasts for breakfast, katsu curry for lunch, and nachos for a quick bite!
Opening hours of the OMO Café
Breakfast: 7 am to 10 am *Opened only to hotel guests
Lunch: 10 am to 2 pm
Café&Bar: 2 pm to 11 pm
Go-KINJO – tour guide service supporting neighborhood excursions
At OMO, we consider the entire city centered around the hotel to be a resort of its own and we want our guests to go out into the city instead of spending time inside the hotel. Go-KINJO is a service comprised of the Go-KINJO Map and Go-KINJO activity, and its aim is for guests to learn about the deep culture of nearby neighborhoods.
Go-KINJO Map – set in Sanjo street and Takase River
One side will have the area near Sanjo street and the other side will be centered around Takase River. Basic information and the highlights of stores and destinations will be indicated on the map, researched by our very own OMO Rangers. We aim to create a map with information on hidden spots and classic destinations so that both beginners and experts of Kyoto can take advantage of what we have discovered in the area.
Go-KINJO Activity – time traveling through city tours
One of the tours will explore the origins of how the city of Kyoto came to be whilst walking along Takase River and another tour visits long-established stores of Kyoto. Tourists often cannot decide where to go in Sanjo area because there are too many to choose from but our OMO rangers have your back!
