The luxury retreat hidden deep in Kyoto’s forests

Tucked away in a forest, Hoshinoya Kyoto is a dream getaway for those who like their travels exquisitely tasteful while understated.

Once the family retreat of a 17th-century merchant and a former playground of court nobles, the secluded property has today been full restored, showcasing the famed craftmanship and history of one of Japan’s leading cities.

Situated on the Katsura River, the hotel is surrounded by trees and is accessible only by boat. It’s a five-minute walk from the iconic Arashiyama Bamboo Grove, and 2km from Arashiyama train station.

As for its features… from guestrooms’ woodblock-print designs to the refined Kaiseki meals, to the landscaped grounds and timeless setting in Arashiyama, Hoshinoya Kyoto is an undeniable haven where guests can embrace the simpler, finer things of life.
