Asia Travel: A Photo Journal of Park Hyatt Kyoto, Kyoto, Japan

Reading Time: 5 minutes

In this post we share photos from Park Hyatt Kyoto, Kyoto, Japan.

This Tony Chi interior designed hotel is remarkable for its location, design, and overall feel; we could swoon over it all day. Park Hyatt Kyoto is a luxury hillside guesthouse located in the Higashiyama Hills (historic Kyoto). Guests have views of the Yasaka Pagoda and are just steps from Kiyomizu-dera Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage siteplace of reverence and spectacular photos.

With only 70 rooms, the sloped tamo wood ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows embody East-meets-West design, where artisanal craftsmanship using local materials accompany contemporary lines.

The Park Hyatt Kyoto is a nod to Kyoto’s artistic and cultural traditions, and a vision for hospitality and design.

We are struck by the impeccable attention to detail in regard to clean lines, placement of items, room organization and harmony of manmade and natural materials.

To celebrate Golden Week, a collection of four national holidays within seven days, Park Hyatt provided complimentary treats in the shape of fish to mark Children’s Day (there are two days, Girl’s Day on May 3 and Boy’s Day on May 5). Families pray for the health and future success of their sons by hanging up carp streamers and displaying samurai dolls, symbolizing strength, power and success in life.
