“A stunning riverside property set in thick forest that dramatically changes colour along with the seasons. Traditionally styled rooms include paper screens, picture windows, Japanese mats and the larger ones have wooden baths. Dine on inventive regional dishes. The perfect rural escape.”

Hoshinoya Kyoto

A tranquil, traditionally-styled but luxurious escape in woods reached by a riverboat, on the edge of Kyoto. A range of free activities include a tea-drinking ceremony.

Hoshinoya Kyoto

The Hoshinoya, Kyoto, a hybrid ryokan-hotel, is made up of a series of low buildings inspired by traditional Japanese houses that cling to the banks above the Hozugawa River in the temple-rich Arashiyama district, and is accessible only by a lazy boat ride in a hinoki (Japanese cedar) vessel.
