For a perfect illustration of inyodo — Japanese feng shui — turn to HOSHINOYA Kyoto. Set in the scenic Arashiyama district and accessible by a leisurely boat ride along the Ooigawa River, this tranquil 25-room resort is fashioned in the style of a traditional ryokan (Japanese inn) and exudes a sense of pure ease and relaxation. The calming interiors feature heated wood floors, handmade wallpapers and shoji-style sliding doors; outside, lantern-lit stone walkways lead through serene Japanese gardens with cedar trees. A modern kaiseki dinner awaits in the evening; watch it take shape in the hands of the acclaimed chef.
Hotel TipHOSHINOYA Kyoto has received the Michelin Five Red Pavilions award — the highest Michelin honor for a hotel — and has been selected for Condé Nast Traveler's Gold List for the third consecutive year.
