A Hotel for All Seasons

A Hotel for All Seasons

MUNI KYOTO offers accommodations as stunning as the city itself.

Arashiyama is one of Kyoto’s most scenic areas and is rich with unforgettable views.

One of them is the stately Togetsukyo Bridge, which was built some 400 years ago to span the Katsura River. Undoubtedly, more than one haiku has been inspired by someone standing on the bridge in the evening, listening to the murmuring of the river and regarding the light of the moon. It is in this scenic setting that you can find the MUNI KYOTO hotel, which was created to be a soothing retreat that blends in with the seasonal charms of Arashiyama.

Its 21 rooms, which range in size from 48 to 76 square meters, offer an ideal base for your experience of Kyoto. The décor of the rooms has been considered down to the smallest detail and brings together Western and Eastern styles—as well as traditional and modern sensibilities—while using a variety of natural materials. The guest rooms have large windows and terraces that look out over the hotel’s beautiful surroundings, including its garden and the river nearby. They have been designed to foster both a sense of openness and privacy.

To make yourself more comfortable during your stay, you can enjoy bath amenities made from local Kyoto products, such as yuzu citron sourced from Mizuo and Kitayama cedar.

The dining options at MUNI KYOTO offer an equally refined experience. The hotel has two Michelin-starred restaurants created in partnership with DUCASSE Paris, the restaurant business that was founded by world-renowned chef Alain Ducasse. MUNI ALAIN DUCASSE is a contemporary restaurant serving cuisine that brings together local ingredients from Kyoto with tradi­tional French culinary techniques.

The other outlet is MUNI LA TERRASSE, where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea while admiring the scenic Katsura River landscape. The executive chef at both restaurants has a wealth of experience at Ducasse’s Michelin-starred restaurants around the world.

Finally, for lighter fare through­out the day, MUNI LA BOUTIQUE offers signature dishes, such as flavorful brioche, choco­late tablets and a variety of pastries that you can take away.

Arashiyama is home to a number of cultural destinations, including Tenryu-ji Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage site with a famous garden. You can also visit Fukuda Art Museum, which is right in front of the hotel. The museum exhibits Japanese works by major artists dating from the 16th to the 20th century and guests can visit for free during their stay.

If the history, culture and nature of the area weren’t enough to put you at ease during your stay at MUNI KYOTO, you can truly unwind at the MUNI SPA. It’s the perfect place to experience a wide variety of treatments that use local Kyoto ingredients in a tranquil atmosphere.

With its blend of stylish design, refined dining and elegant comfort, MUNI KYOTO is a hotel that befits a storied city.
