HERO Japan Hoshinoya Kyoto Aerial

Only accessible by boat, these 25 elegantly built rooms are reminiscent of cedar, with delicately carved shinning wooden floors, walls covered with karakami wallpaper featuring gold patterns that change throughout the day and large glass windows revealing the beautiful landscapes and spacious bathroom.  Though furnished with contemporary comforts, the pavilions maintain the sense of sophistication cultivated by Suminokura. The king-sized beds offer you the most luxurious sleep with a comfortable sofa close by for you to be able to look out into the Arashiyama wilderness. From the iron lanterns that light the moss-traced stone walkways to the lashed bamboo fences, every detail has been considered.  

The Japanese dining experience at Hozugawa is exquisite. Defined by the seasons, the menu reflects the local surroundings with a touch of western cuisine designed to stimulate and surprise. Breakfast can either be traditional Japanese hot vegetable broth or you can opt for an American style breakfast. There is also a full room service menu if you fancy an evening of privacy, eating from the comfort of your pavilions using the raw-silk robes provided.  

Head down to the traditional Kyoto spa and immerse yourself into a state of complete serenity intending to cleanse and revitalise, then take yourself down to the Zen rock garden and look up into the star-filled night sky. To fully experience the true Kyoto, have a go at meditation with an expert designed to fully engage you with the culture and nature of your surroundings.
