Mitsui Garden Hotel Kyoto Shijo

Mitsui Garden Hotel Kyoto Shijo

A hotel where first-time visitors can fully appreciate Kyoto culture

A renovation project for an existing hotel lobby, restaurant, guest rooms, and large public bath for the hotel guest. A hotel for the Kyoto first-timer. A place for international visitors to appreciate and digest Kyoto’s distinct culture. The hotel is located in a centralized location where guests can experience traditional festivals such as the "Gion Matsuri". The design of the hotel takes inspiration from these motifs adding color to the festival - colorful floats, goldfish, umbrellas, lanterns and kimonos. Each area was designed with a theme: "Decorate" for the lobby, "Dance" for the guest rooms, "Light up" for the bathhouse, and "Play music" for the restaurant. The reborn hotel amplifies the excitement of a guest’s first visit to Kyoto.
