All Food and Drink
Meet up with friends and mingle indoors by the fireplace, grab a seat at the sleek and modern bar, or, book a table on the large waterside terrace overlooking the pond garden and enjoy the uncomplicated, seasonal menu at our relaxed, light-filled brasserie.
- Sushi Wakon
The vision of Master Chef Rei Masuda, our one-Michelin-starred restaurant offers an intimate and interactive experience as you watch as our master chefs create stunning dishes made with top-quality ingredients flown in each day from Tokyo’s iconic Tsukiji market – either at the 200-year-old, 10-seat Hinoki counter, or in one of our two private-dining rooms.
- The Lounge & Bar
Enjoy a homemade croissant and a fresh cappuccino while you catch up on emails in our casual lobby lounge, or come nightfall, relax with a Kyoto-inspired cocktail in our comfortable lounge seats.
Tucked away in our historic ikeniwa sits our traditional tea house, where private tea ceremonies are held daily, and an evening glass of Kyoto sake or premium Champagne on the terrace provides the perfect opportunity to gaze at the sparkling light of the pond’s reflections.
- In-Room Dining
Whether you want to share a romantic dinner in the privacy of your room, need to feed a hungry family or are looking for quiet evening in, our in-room menus feature Japanese and international favourites, as well as items from Brasserie, all just a tap away on your room’s iPad.
- Every Day from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Our private Tea Ceremony experience is available at Shakusui-tei exclusively for our guests. Please make your reservation one week in advance.
- Saturday, July 14 – Monday, September 17
Summer Yukata and Kimono
It's the best time to wear a yukata (traditional summer kimono) to stay cool during this summer heat in Kyoto, especially when you get the chance to enjoy the Gion Festival. Come for lunch, afternoon tea or for dinner at the Brasserie at Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto and wear your yukata or kimono, and enjoy a complimentary glass of sparkling wine or non-alcohol cocktail (Tropical Bellini).
- A sip of tradition
A scenic walk across a glass bridge leads you to our intimate tea house, Shakusui-tei, nestled in our historic ikeniwa, where a tea master waits to introduce you to the solemn art of a traditional tea ceremony.
- Delight in the details
In addition to the masterfully trained chefs at Sushi Wakon, the entire restaurant is a testament to Japanese craft and design. Evidence ranges from the rotating selection of regional artwork in the dining rooms, to the handmade metal tiles that celebrate Origami and Kumiko, to our centrepiece: an 8-metre long sushi counter made from a single piece of Japanese cypress, handcrafted by one of Japan’s greatest craftsmen 200 years ago.
