A remarkable setting, at one with the city's artistic soul Aman Kyoto represents the fruition of a beautiful landscape first conceived as the garden of a textile museum. Whimsical stone pathways curve gently along the forest floor, and stone slabs blanketed in moss serve as the foundations for the resort's architecture. The secluded grounds are part of what was an artistic community that gave rise to the revered Rinpa school of painting some 400 years ago, and are within easy reach of Kyoto’s most important sites, including the stunning golden temple, Kinkakuji.
Both rooms and pavilions at Aman Kyoto follow the traditions inherited by Japanese inns and are sublimated in a modern way to maximize the natural scenery. The minimalist interior that feels the warmth of wood is full of natural light and is a quiet and calm space. In the guest rooms of the building that blends into the forest, you can enjoy the scenery of the forest and garden from the windows on the whole wall, and from the hilltop pavilion, you can enjoy the trees such as maple and cedar, and the nearby mountains. The calm space composed of tatami mats and floors, and the cypress bath, invite you to relax in extraordinary times in the gently flowing ancient city.
