HOSHINOYA 「星のや 京都」 opened in Dec.2009 under the ideal of "Authentic Japan with Modern Comfort"

Posted By on Sep 25, 2011


This picturesque retreat blends traditional Japanese architecture with contemporary service and accommodations. It has the added advantage of being located amongst the greatest historical and cultural treasures of Japan in the centuries old city of Kyoto.

Yama (67-93 sqm)
The Yama room features a bedroom and a separate room lined with tatami. All Yama rooms provide a gorgeous view of the river and mountains with lush forests that display a variety of colors through seasons. Discover the sense of well-being that comes from staying in a tatami room finely decorated with the elegance one would expect from this hybrid ryokan-resort for your hideaway from the bustle of Kyoto.

Breakfast is served in the comfort of your room, offering Japanese, American and Continental breakfasts.

The pond and terrace of the modern-style ‘Water Garden’ spreads out in front of the library, while set among the guest rooms is
the peaceful ‘Hidden Garden’. Both are illuminated after dark, and blend Kyoto tradition with the latest in design to provide a unique garden experience.
