Their thirty-eight guest rooms come together in a harmony of blonde wood accents and earthtones to capture the warm essence of Japanese interior aesthetics. While paying homage to its functional aspects, the rooms also encourage guests to take their shoes off and make themselves at home, an essential part of Japanese culture. They have 17 different room types to suit every travel style, many with fragrant hinoki wood bathtubs, which harken to Japan's tradition of a nice, hot soak at the end of the day, the perfect way to unwind after busy travel. Guests will find a bottle of local sake in each room for adding to their bath water, so all can enjoy this well-kept Japanese beauty secret for soft and supple skin. Some rooms even have a partial open-air bath for relaxing under the trees in the evening sunlight. Some of the rooms feature a hori-gotatsu, a traditional sunken table, which gives guests a taste of both the warmth and charm of Japanese living spaces. They also have Japanese-style rooms where you can dine en-suite, or gaze out over the Kyoto townscape from a private terrace; or if you just have to get some work done, they also have rooms with a convenient desk for mixing business and pleasure. For larger groups, they offer Japanese-style rooms with up to 5-guest occupancy as well.
