Wonderful stay by the World Heritage Site
The location of Kyoto International Hotel is where Emperor Horikawa once had his residence in the Heian period (794-1185). The dignified Nijo Castle, one of Kyoto’s World Heritage Sites, stands just across from the hotel. Rooms on the west side possess a grand view of the castle in every season. The restaurant is surrounded by a fine Japanese garden with swans elegantly swimming in the pond. A stone monument on which one of the poems by the famous Buddhist priests, Dogen, (1200-1253) is inscribed, tells of the history of Kyoto.
