The quintessential resort experienceThe quintessential resort experience

In every beautiful locale in every country, there is a resort that offers personal space and time of unparalleled luxury and food and service that convey the highest level of hospitality, all infused with the local culture and natural environment. This is the experience promised by HOSHINOYA.

Contemporary, with one foot placed firmly in the past

Contemporary, with one foot placed firmly in the past

HOSHINOYA Kyoto was built from a riverside villa in Arashiyama, where its perfectly preserved scenery and architecture have been defined by silence, beauty, and luxury for centuries. The resort has inherited these qualities, but continues to build on them. The result is an experience that embraces the area's past without forgetting the comforts of contemporary living.

Once a retreat for the Imperial aristocracy, Arashiyama offers such seasonal delights as cherry blossoms in the spring, lush greenery in the summer, red maple leaves in the fall, and waterfowl in the winter. All these sights can be taken in from the comfort of our rooms.

Staying in a finely aged traditional Japanese building

Staying in a finely aged traditional Japanese building

The guest rooms are located in a renovated ryokan inn that was built 100 years ago on the former premises of Kyoto business tycoon Suminokura Ryoi's private residence. It was modernized just enough to ensure a pleasant stay without sacrificing the heart of traditional Japanese architecture.

Beauty in the detail of Kyoto craftsmanship

Karakami paper prints

Karakami paper prints

Print patterns refined over dozens of years. Architect Rie Azuma chose to adorn the walls and sliding doors of each guest room with paper prints produced with 130-year-old woodblocks using a mixture of chalk, sanguine, verditer, ocher, black ink, mica, and other pigments. Each are handcrafted by artisans at Kyo Karakami Maruni.

Garden landscaping

Garden landscaping

A new style of garden created by traditional craftsmen. The resort is home to two gardens: the Mizu-no-niwa, with its pond and waterfall; and Oku-no-niwa, where smoked tiles create flowing lines over the grounds. Landscape artist Hiroki Hasegawa's playful designs were brought to life by Ueyakato Landscape, in business since 1848.

Doors

Shoji sliding doors feature crosspieces crafted with the meticulous attention to detail inherent in traditional Kyoto design, as well as dynamic forms that are classic yet infused with a contemporary sensibility. Every door is a work of art that retains its original functionality.

Tatami sofas

Tatami sofas

The charms of a traditional Japanese home only become apparent when kneeling on the floor. To allow guests to comfortably enjoy this perspective, architect Rie Azuma has furnished many rooms with floor-level "tatami sofas" created by the Hinoki Kogei furniture craftsmen collective.

Lighting

Lighting

Lighting designed to let the shadows breathe.In a Japanese room, lighting plays a strictly supporting role, offering warmth and comfort without ruining the effects created by shadows. Miura Shomei produces artisanal light fixtures that very gently illuminate a room so that the shadows may come to life as they are intended.

A classic polishing technique revived for today.HOSHINOYA Kyoto is located in a building styled after teahouse aesthetics. It is a hundred years old, but looks as good as new thanks to a traditional polishing technique practiced by the Nishatani painting company that restores a building's youth without blemishing its original look.

Metalwork
