Impressed by Japanese sense of beauty and hospitality in the modern-style hotel
“Kan” represents “feel”, and “Ra” represents “Kyoto” in Japanese. The name of “Kanra” is deserved for the real meaning, in that at this hotel you can feel the aesthetic and hospitality of Kyoto which has matured and grown out of a long history. The entrance is just like a Kyoto-style alley, bringing in all the seasonal fragrances. You can see the modern and traditional Machiya-style arrangements. The natural light of the lobby reminds you of sunlight filtering down through the trees, and the guest room has a tatami-mat and space associated with a passage garden. They receive many guests from foreign countries too. Especially their Japanese cuisine is very popular which is colorfully arranged with more than 20 kinds of vegetables mainly grown in Kyoto, every dish is carefully cooked and arranged so that you can enjoy its taste and its appetizing sight. The balanced breakfast will re-charge you for the day. This is the Kanra Kyoto style hospitality.
