Discover Kyoto

A Kyoto Luxury Hotel by Four Seasons

1 / 5


Built some 800 years ago at the foot of a mountain in the scenic Higashiyama temple district, our 10,000-square-metre (100,000-square-foot), circuit-style ikeniwa, or pond garden, is a haven of quiet dignity – and one of the few remaining gardens created at the end of the Heian Period, the peak of Imperial Japan. Wander its tree- and water-lined paths and fill your soul with a resounding sense of peace.
