The Mitsui, Kyoto

You’ll experience the essence of ancient and modern Japan in the first and only luxury hotel in the heart of Kyoto, which opened last Fall. The Mitsui is a member of the Marriott Luxury Collection.

For more than 250 years, this property has belonged to the illustrious Mitsui family. The hotel is located close to Nijo-Jo Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Take a look:

Restaurant Toki

The serene environs of the hotel put you in firsthand contact with traditional Japanese culture, architecture, cuisine, art and craft.

The two restaurants feature exquisite traditional Japanese cuisine, composed of the finest ingredients sourced from around the world. Of course, you’ll also be treated to the famed local Kyoto produce. Each section of the dining facilities overlooks a beautifully curated garden.

The 161 guest rooms are inspired by Japanese tea houses with minimalist design and birch wood floors. Each one showcases the tranquility and storied history of the location.

The hotel’s most precious jewel is the stunning Onsen, a natural hot spring. This is a haven for relaxation, where you are invited to step away from the stresses of everyday life. Take a bath in the natural thermal waters and pick from a menu of seductive massages.
