Kyoto, Japan’s former Imperial capital with more than one thousand years of exquisitely preserved history is home to two thousand temples and shrines, complete with authentic Japanese gardens and a kaleidoscope of festivals, ceremonies and rituals year-round. Seventeen are UNESCO World Heritage Sites, living evidence of golden age Japan. Yet, the city is also modern, pulsing with up-to-the-moment arts, design and culture.
It's impossible to do and see it all in one trip, and some of the best of experiences require insider access. At Four Seasons, we have devised experiences, from the exclusive and inaccessible to the most sought after to invite a discovery of Kyoto unlike anything else. Let us be your guide as you journey through our beautiful city.
