If you've seen pictures of Kyoto or have visited, you may have noticed that there are no buildings taller than a certain height.
That's because the city has rules so that buildings cannot be taller than the stunning pagodas that we're lucky to have in this historic city.
This means that you can also clearly see the lush mountains that surround the city and enjoy an expansive view of the sky from our rooftop terrace.
Go up for a respite from the hustle and bustle of sightseeing, as a safe place for kids to play, or as a way to regain your energy for more travels.
It's never too late to take care of yourself.
We hope to help you do that when we get the chance to host you in Arashiyama!
Our open-air, spacious rooftop terrace is a secluded, crowd-free space for guests to take a break from sightseeing and get a breath of fresh air. We're always updating the outdoor furniture to keep it new and fresh.
We've provided several cushy, German-made outdoor sofas on our rooftop terrace.
Have a seat in whichever one tickles your fancy.
Beneath your feet, you can feel the soft and springy green turf that'll make you feel like you're sitting at the park.
The turf is soft enough so that kids can safely play and parents don't have to worry about scratches and cuts.
When the sun goes down, the lights come on.
The rooftop terrace is illuminated at night by gentle lighting to calm and soothe away stresses of the day.
Each person will have their own preference for how to spend their downtime in the relaxing nighttime ambience, whether it be with a drink, book, music, or wherever your mind takes you.
Since it's nice to spend time outdoors in all seasons, we've pitched a windproof and waterproof tent for guests to hide out inside and be protected from the elements.
We welcome you to play a game of cards or enjoy some food and drinks while you're in the tent.
For the winter, we've set up a Japanese heated table known as a kotatsu, so you'll have a place to keep your feet warm and maybe even take a catnap!
If you come back to our hotel during a different season, you're sure to see that our rooftop terrace has changed for that time of year. In the fall, you would have found Japanese maple leaves scattered around, and for the Lunar New Year, you would see the famous red lanterns hung above your head.
We have talented decorators in our staff so that you can take in the spirit of any holiday or season and enjoy it as much as possible.
