Four Seasons Kyoto

Why We Love This Hotel :

Location: Nestled at the foot of Higashiyama Mountain, alongside a thousand-year-old ikeniwa pond, Four Seasons Kyoto is located just ten minutes from Kyoto’s city center, within the temple district, making it an ideal base from which to explore the nearby shrines and historic landmarks, as well as the more modern attractions of Japan’s elegant former capital.  


History: Having opened it’s doors in October 2016, Four Seasons Kyoto - the second site for the Four Seasons brand in the country - may have been five years in the planning, but the atmosphere of urbane tranquility of the Zen inspired interiors has made an indelible impression on a city known for its sense of style and sophistication.  

Service: Four Seasons Kyoto provides the very best in round-the-clock luxury service, complete with 24-hour concierge and room service, manned with English-speaking staff ready to cater for to guests’ wants and needs.


As well as luxurious accommodation and up-to-the-minute amenities, Four Seasons Kyoto offers world-class facilities for those wanting to relax and unwind, or keep on top of work and maintain their fitness regimen.

The 20 meter indoor pool offers space to serious swimmers dedicated to counting out the laps, as well as two large whirlpools and sun loungers beneath the water’s surface, suited for the guest inclined to more leisurely pursuits.


Dining in the elegant and stylish environment of Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto is a lavish affair; sample tasty local delicacies, Western favourites and experience a classic tea ceremony in serene surroundings. Or, simply relax and enjoy a glass of bubbles amid the superior confines of the hotel, while receiving unparalleled levels of service and attention.


The Brasserie, on the fourth floor, is a simple yet sophisticated eatery; offering a menu bursting with piquant local dishes, prepared with seasonal produce by the hotels team of expert chefs, while bar staff and baristas are on hand to provide the perfect accompaniment to any meal, whatever the occasion. The laidback atmosphere of the restaurant is complemented by 30-foot-high ceilings, lined with vast floor-to-ceiling-windows which frame the exquisite garden views into vibrant scenes of natural beauty.

In-Room Dining

Along with the bar and restaurants, Four Seasons Kyoto also offers In-Room Dining, for a more casual experience, where guests can choose from a menu of international and Japanese dishes 24 hours a day – a children’s menu is also available.

Lounge Bar

Guests can enjoy a homemade croissant or a fresh cappuccino, while reading the daily papers, against the backdrop of the pond garden in the Four Seasons Kyoto lobby lounge, thoughtfully conceived to create a modern looking and convivial meeting space.


Linked to the hotel by a small glass bridge, the Shakusui-tei is Four Seasons Kyoto own tea house at the heart of the ikeniwa, where guests can sip premium champagne or sample a glass of Kyoto sake as sunlight skips across the still waters of the pond garden. Shakusui-tei staff are also available to perform the famous Japanese tea-ceremony for reservations of four.

Sushi Wakon

Located on the third floor of the hotel, Sushi Wakon is the creation of Michelin-starred chef Rei Masuda; here guests can enjoy the freshest sushi served at the 200-year-old Hinoki counter against the ikeniwa pond garden, or choose one of two private dining rooms for a more intimate and individual experience.
