Next year, the Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto will be opened as the company’s second destination in Japan. It will be located within Tokyo’s Higashiyama-ku district and is nearby to the Kyoto National Museum as well as the Toyokuni Shrine and Kiyomizu Temple, both of which are well regraded heritage sites.
The hotel will be built on a near 5 acre site and have 124 rooms. It will include a large banquet hall, bar, a number of swimming pool, a myriad of restaurants, fitness gym, spa and ample parking bays for guests. The interiors will be decorated with local artwork adding to the Japanese style of the Four Seasons Hotel Kyoto.
The hotel will be managed by Berjaya Kyoto Development Kabushiki Kaisha, which is a subsidiary of Malaysian group Berjaya Land Berhad and Berjaya Corporation Berhad (BCorp).
Discussing the hotel, BCorp founder Tan Sri Dato Seri Vincent said “Kyoto has more than a thousand years of history in hospitality and this unique heritage can still be experienced in various cultural locations in Kyoto such as Gion. It is our hope that the expertise that Four Seasons brings to this development will complement such a rich tradition in hospitality, therefore crafting an experience that is unrivalled. We are confident that this Hotel will be one of the most iconic in the world on completion.”
