Hoshinoya Kyoto

The voyage towards Hoshinoya Kyoto is as dramatic as the illustrious ryokan itself. 

Leave the cityscape of Kyoto behind and get onboard a private wooden boat. Drift steadily along the meandering Oi River, until the stately hotel comes in sight, peeking through the foliage.

Your suite will open up to a captivating vista of the historic river, backed by hills teeming with trees that change colors every season.

Each corner in the ryokan is adorned with a water feature, varying from waterfall to flowing stream, kindling a sense of calmness.

With a wealth of cultural activities awaiting, time will miraculously stand still at this divine waterfront retreat, prompting you to slow down your footsteps.
