Hyatt Hotels announced that the Park Hyatt Kyoto had opened its doors to guests.

The new property is located in the Higashiyama historic district in the city, known as the birthplace of the Japanese tea ceremony, the Ikebana flower arrangement, and the Japanese Zen gardens.  It is located next to the Kodai-ii, a temple of the Rinzai school of Zen Buddhism, whose gardens are a nationally designated Historic Site and Place of Beauty.  The hotel is also located less than one mile (1.5 kilometers) from the Kyoto train station.

The hotel’s 70 guestrooms and suites feature a minimalist design that is said to be inspired by the seasons and senses and that uses local woods including Tamo wood and artwork by created by local masters.

Dining options for guests include the Kyoto Bistro, a casual café offering Japanese comfort food along with international dishes. It serves meals on handmade earthenware created Asahiyaki, a local pottery master.  Yasaka offers Japanese teppan cuisine in a dining room that features views of the Yasaka Pagoda, also known as the Hokan-ji Temple.  The temple is one of the most historic in Japanese culture and one of the city’s most prominent pieces of architecture.  The Living Room serves traditional Japanese breakfasts as well as afternoon tea and light dishes.

In addition, Kyoyamato, the city’s highly regarded kaiseki restaurant, is on the same grounds as the hotel.

The hotel’s Kohaku bar offers a variety of spirits including whiskey, sake, and gin from Kyoto-based distillers.
