Kyoto's new hidden gem is exclusively located in the beautifully preserved Gion Shirakawa and Shinmonzen Street. The Shinmonzen; a luxury boutique hotel designed by one of the world’s most celebrated contemporary architects - Tadao Ando and other artist friends. The project has been a labour of love for over 10 years and has been designed for the modern travellers with a deep inspiration of an experience from a traditional Japanese Inn, Ryokan.
Nine unique suites all defined by elegant comfort, each accented by a different native material. In Japanese philosophy, natural materials like bamboo, lacquer, silk, even stone, are full of dynamic life, providing a connection to the divine.
