“Contemporary ryokan luxury”

The bonsai tree – exquisite, and said to evoke contemplation, not unlike the tranquil stillness at The Ritz-Carlton Kyoto on the Kamogawa River. Zen garden, stone waterfalls, and kimono clad ladies only add to the Kyotan mystique. If you can take more enchantment, sign up for one of their activities – a number of which are complimentary – ranging from Japanese harp playing and sake tasting to samurai and kimono experiences. This is one hotel you’ll definitely need to set aside some days to stay in and enjoy.

Best time to visit : March to May, October to November

The GM's Top Recommendations

Mark Neukomm
Mark Neukomm
General Manager

Gekkeikan Okura Sake Museum
Gekkeikan Okura Sake Museum

"There are approximately 2,000 sake breweries in Japan, which produce more than 10,000 products, and every brand of sake has a unique aroma and flavor of its own. This museum is located in Fushimi, the traditional sake-making district of Kyoto, with its white-walled storehouses and beautiful row of willow trees. These and the heady aroma of steaming rice and fermenting mash give visitors a timeless experience. For lovers of sake and those interested in its role in Japanese history and culture, this museum is well worth a visit."

Gion Corner
Gion Corner
"Gion Corner is a fascinating theater where you can watch fascinating one-hour shows featuring Kyoto's traditional performing arts – kyogen classical comedy, kyomai dance, gagaku music of the Imperial court, koto harp, bunraku puppet theater, tea ceremony and flower arrangement. There is also a Maiko gallery in the lobby that exhibits hair ornaments. The facility opened in 1962, just before the Tokyo Olympic Games, to provide non-Japanese people with insights into the traditional culture of Kyoto. English commentary is available."
Ginkaku-ji Temple
Ginkaku-ji Temple

"Ginkaku-ji temple, the famous Silver Pavilion, is an elegant structure set in a beautiful location at the foot of Kyoto's eastern mountains. The Zen temple has stood on this spot since the 15th century, and its grounds are an outstanding example of Japanese landscape architecture. It is called the Silver Pavilion because the Shogun Ashikaga Yoshimasa had it built as a retirement villa, and wanted it to be covered in silver foil, but turmoil during the Onin War delayed the construction and the initial plans were never realized."

Heian-jingu Shrine
Heian-jingu Shrine

"Heian-jingu shrine is a bit newer than most of Kyoto's sacred places, having been built in 1895 as a reproduction of the magnificent Heian Palace, to commemorate the 1,100th anniversary of the relocation of the capital of Japan from Nara to Kyoto. Heian-jingu is an impressive shrine, with elegant buildings surrounded by expansive and beautiful gardens."
