Luxury Holidays At Hoshinoya Kyoto

Nestled within dense green forests and accessed only by private boat, the riverside Hoshinoya Kyoto is set within a cluster of century-old buildings, renovated to resemble a traditional ryokan inn.

To top off your luxury Japan holiday, enjoy simply unmatchable service that embraces the deep-rooted Japanese art of hospitality.
