Because now is the time to experience the goodness of Arashiyama and have a relaxing time
While activities are restricted and stressful days continue, 3 I want to spend an elegant time for the first time in a long time without worrying about denseness and regain my energy, so I made use of the location of Oku Arashiyama and stayed 3 I thought.
Hoshinoya Kyoto is located in Okuarashiyama, which is about 30 minutes from the center of Kyoto, and you can also drive to the entrance to the boat waiting area. From the boat waiting area, take a private boat, open the window and enjoy the comfortable breeze and scenery, then slowly head to your room. Check-in is done in the guest room, so it is an environment where we rarely meet other guests. There is happiness that can be felt because it’s difficult now to take a leisurely view of the scenery, eat a delicious meal, or change a little.
In addition, I think that local tourism in Japan has a problem that it cannot fully convey its goodness to the locals. Because activities are limited these days, I think that it is an opportunity for people living in the Kansai region who do not have to move a lot to know the goodness of Okuarashiyama.

Airy guest rooms with river views

Arashiyama, where Hoshinoya Kyoto is located, once prospered as a villa for Heian aristocrats. All of the 25 rooms designed around the garden face the Oigawa River, and when you open the windows you can feel the refreshing breeze flowing through the valley. From this window, you can see the scenery of Okuarashiyama in each season, such as cherry blossoms in spring and snowstorm, fresh greenery in summer, red leaves in autumn red and yellow, and calm winter snow scene. You can fully enjoy the wonderful view of Arashiyama, which was loved by the Heian aristocrats, from the comfort of your room.
In addition, Hoshinoya Kyoto has Kyoto culture scattered throughout its guest rooms. Comfortable, such as “Kyotogami” wallpaper with beautiful traditional patterns hand-printed one by one, and Hoshino and Kyoto’s original “Tatami Sofa” where you can enjoy the scenery that Japanese people once saw while keeping a low line of sight. Not just an elegant stay.
Furthermore, in the guest room, you can prepare “pillow incense” that blends the incense raw materials to your liking, “Shakei” that prepares your feelings, and “Nosago (Nodate basket) where you can enjoy green tea at your favorite place regardless of manners. Lending of baskets ”. Through activities tailored to your mood, you can experience the Kyoto culture without worrying about others and spend a comfortable and elegant time.

Dining in a private space

For dinner, you can choose to eat at the main dining room or in your room. The main dining room in the semi-private room offers multi-course kaiseki cuisine based on the concept of “Gomi freely.”
While following the wisdom of Japanese cuisine cultivated by our ancestors, I want to continue to preserve Japanese cuisine for the next generation by not being bound by that framework but by freely changing my tastes and continuing to change. .. We offer a total of 9 kaiseki meals that show the seasonal scenery of Oku Arashiyama. For the meal in the guest room, we will prepare “Shinkado Bento” which is a collection of authentic Kyoto dishes. In addition to the one-sided dishes such as Hachijo and mixed dishes, we will also serve assorted dishes using seasonal ingredients such as rice in honey and bowls with dashi stock.
Breakfast has been served in the guest rooms since the opening so that you can enjoy the view from the window. We will prepare a morning hot pot to enjoy a lot of seasonal vegetables with the chef’s special soup stock. At Hoshinoya Kyoto, you can enjoy a delicious meal in a private space in either the dining room or the guest room.

3 Seasonal activities to enjoy while avoiding denseness

3 We also hold seasonal activities that can be enjoyed without worrying about closeness.
For example, in the spring, we will hold a “Sakura Tea Party” in the air tea room overlooking the Oyan River, where you can enjoy original Japanese sweets and matcha while watching the cherry blossoms. In the summer, a mosquito net with a soft texture made of thread made from Kitayama cedar will be set up in the back garden, and a stretch called “Yaza” will be held that incorporates breathing and meditation. In the fall, you can enjoy the autumn leaves shining from the roof of a houseboat, the morning maple boat, and in the winter, you can open your eyes to the waterside mermaid that behaves like a cold pocket to warm your body. We offer seasonal activities that you can enjoy in the natural environment.
