Set at the foot of Higashiyama Mountain in Kyoto’s district of temples, Four Seasons Hotel and Hotel Residences is a sanctuary minutes from the city’s cultural treasures and the bustle of downtown. Double-height windows throughout frame the surrounding beauty through every season. You arrive through an alluring bamboo forest that leads to the sanctuary of an 800-year-old pond garden—“Shakusui-en”—a haven of quiet dignity and engagement with nature.

Inspired by traditional artistry yet exhilaratingly contemporary, the hotel is a modern window into the rich history of this ancient capital city. The hotel encompasses some of the city’s most spacious guest rooms and 13 suites plus 57 hotel residences; four dining venues including a beautiful tea house in the garden; an exclusive spa and indoor pool; and sophisticated meeting spaces, with a custom-designed chapel for weddings and other events.

You and up to five guests will stay for seven nights, with breakfast, in an expansive two-bedroom Private Hotel residence. These apartments exemplify kutsurogi—Japanese for relaxation, ease, and comfort. Your residence provides all this in abundance, and throughout your week-long stay, you will experience “life at its best.”
