Kyoto Tower Hotels

Kyoto Tower is the modern, glitzy focal point of the buzzing Japanese city of Kyoto. This soaring silvery steel structure - stacked atop a 9 storey-tall hotel and shopping centre - offers unbeatable views across the glittering neon-washed Kyoto streets below. Based in central Kyoto, the tower is surrounded by the city’s old-world temples and serene shrines, as well as its many local heritage museums. Night-life lovers, meanwhile, will go wild for the area’s dance clubs and sake bars.

Things to see

Start your Kyoto day by taking an elevator up the neck of the needle-shaped tower to the 100 metre-tall observation deck. Here, wide glass windows offer crystal-clear views across the sprawling city streets - sprinkled with stacked temples - which twist and wind out to the green-washed western Arashiyama mountains.

After, spend some time exploring Kyoto’s tranquil temples. Begin at the Kinkaku-ji, based in a paradisal mountainside park in northwestern Kyoto. This traditional pond-front Buddhist temple is renowned for its bright gold-leaf covering - which flashes and beams in the warm Kyoto sunlight. Next, visit the Fushimi Inari Shrine, southeast of the centre. This 8th-century religious spot is lined with torii - traditional bright-orange Japanese gates - which turn and coil up the adjoining Inari mountain. If you’ve any energy left, cap-off your day in the Gion neighbourhood, where authentic Geishas glide past traditional teahouses and trinket stores.

Hotels in Kyoto Tower

Those after cheap no-frills accommodation should stay in one of the 2 star hotels near Kyoto Tower such as Fujiya Ryokan, which offer cosy air-conditioned rooms with convenient amenities like self-serve laundry and secure luggage storage. For something more upper-end that still won’t break the bank, stay in one of the 3 star hotels near Kyoto Tower such as Satomo Ryokan, and enjoy casual in-house restaurants and spacious ensuite rooms with free WiFi. For a slice of Kyoto city luxury, check out the ritzy 4 star hotels such as Kyoto Century Hotel, which boast full service spas and fine-dining restaurants.

Where to stay

The area surrounding Kyoto Tower is an energetic melee of department stores, restaurants, and street markets. This downtown core also includes Kyoto Station - a flashy-modern building lined with reflective glass - which serves as both a transportation hub and a popular shopping centre. If you’re travelling with kids - or simply prefer a more peaceful atmosphere - stay in the eastern Gion neighbourhood. The pedestrianised streets, timbered houses, and elusive Geishas provide a true taste of Kyoto’s old-world magic. For total tranquillity, stay in the less crowded Northern Higashiyama district, which overflows with tree-blanketed gardens, ancient shrines, and idyllic temples.

How to get to Kyoto Tower

Kyoto doesn’t have its own airport, but it’s well-served by the bustling Kansai International Airport, based just outside of Osaka. Kansai serves year-round flights from top European destinations like Paris and Amsterdam. From the airport, you can travel the 100 kilometres direct to Kyoto by catching the Haruka Limited Express train. These trains take around 75 minutes, and leave from Kansai Airport every 30 - 60 minutes. Once at Kyoto Station, you’re a stone’s throw from Kyoto Tower. To get around the city, utilise Kyoto’s abundant range of public transport, which includes subways, trains, trams, and a vast bus network.
