Profile: Higashiyama Ward

Profile: Higashiyama Ward

Quaint Higashiyama lies between the Kamo river and the mountains, just 3 km northeast of downtown Kyoto. Sloping streets are lined with wooden buildings housing independent shops selling artisanal wares, giving the district a cozy, old-world feel. Visit in March to experience the Hanatoro festival, when the flower-decked alleys are lit by thousands of white lanterns.

The vast wooded Kiyomizu-dera temple complex is the best-known attraction in the area, but a stroll through Higashiyama’s picturesque streets will bring you to countless smaller but equally fascinating religious sites, including Kodaiji Temple which boasts pretty landscaped gardens and a bamboo grove.

8.8.Fabulous.

    Four Seasons Kyoto is perhaps the most enjoyable hotel experience I’ve ever had in my life. I’ve stayed in fancier places, but nothing with such kind and helpful staff. The concierge was endlessly helpful in getting us to the trains we needed to take for our day trips. Almost everyday there was some fun and special gift waiting for us in our rooms when we returned. The room was cleaned for us multiple times per day. The facility is superb. The rooms are amazingly beautiful. Ours had a more “average” view of the beautiful bamboo grove next door. The steam room, gym, and baths are wonderful and lifegiving. If I had to nitpick I would say the pool is strange. It’s like it’s in a cave. Beautiful but without sunlight. The restaurant is a bit overpriced. I mean, $15 for a cup of coffee? Also the music in the hotel lobbies and such is lame. Typical elevator music. But that’s about all. Truly a beautiful hotel. Tip: come during the low season! We got a room for $700/night in mid January which is significantly cheaper than other times in the year.

    Everything is wonderful except-avoid room service

    Each and every day of our eight day stay room service was not up to standard of a fine hotel. The orders were late and always always with issues. When items were forgotten the “re-do” would be met with a verbal apology but would still be incorrect when the arrived again. I called the main reception and let them know of all the specifics. Again, more pleasant apologies but no action or discount for the missing items upon the check out. It’s all about the way of handling issues. So overall the service was just ok.
