HOSHINOYA Kyoto in Arashiyama, Kyoto, is a ryokan (Japanese inn) with a river view from all rooms and is located in an area that once flourished as a vacation home area for the Heian nobles. Whilst preserving the traditional Japanese architectural design and incorporating modern comforts, it opened in 2009. Away from the hustle and bustle near the Togetsu-Kyo Bridge, a famous landmark of Arashiyama, HOSHINOYA Kyoto is 15 minutes by boat up the Oi River. Calm and serenity await at this secluded ryokan, where guests can immerse themselves into the world of HOSHINOYA like no other. The fine works of local craftsmen in Kyoto, who are well-versed in the idea and production of incorporating modernity into traditional crafts can be found throughout the ryokan. Touches of omotenashi, Japanese hospitality, and the culture, history, seasonality, and craftsmanship of Kyoto can be felt from every place and moment in the ryokan for an immersive stay experience.
