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.

The only access to the resort is by boat

On arrival

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.

Tea time by the river, so relaxing
