Japanese-style hotel with dancing fireflies and Ayu dish on the river-side terrace
Momiji-ya Annex ”Kawa-no-iori” is located in Takao, the mountain hamlet in the Rakusai area. Takao is one of the Kyoto's most famous sites for maple leaf viewing in autumn and is also known as a summer resort. This elegant Japanese-style hotel with a steep rafter roof is rare in Kyoto. There are spacious guest rooms with an open-air bath, which were built in accordance with the lay of the land, and separated from the main building. You can relax and enjoy the outdoor bath while feeling a cool breeze and walking around the land listening to the sound of the stream and kajika frogs croaking. This is the perfect spot for people who wish to unwind and relax. In addition, enjoying meals served on the terraces above the river is part of the attraction in Takao. The hotel serves Kyoto cuisine using Ayu (sweet fish) on the terraces between June and September, including an entertainment by maiko (apprentice of geisha) as a special privilege service. Have a lovely time on the cool river terrace in Kyoto.
