Autograph Collection Hotels has announced the opening of The Prince Kyoto Takaragaike, Autograph Collection hotel in the Takaragaike area.
Located in the heart of Kyoto’s Rakuhoku district, the hotel is adjacent to Takaragaike Park, which offers walking trails with scenic views of spring cherry blossoms and autumn foliage. Takaragaike was for centuries a favourite place for the city’s upper class to relax amid scenic nature. Local attractions, including the 17th-century Shugakuin Imperial Villa, as well as the breathtaking gold leaf-covered Kinkakuji Temple, are within walking distance.
Designed by renowned Japanese architect Togo Murano, The Prince Kyoto Takaragaike showcases an interplay between Japanese tradition and Murano’s modernist approach to architecture and design. The main building is an oval shape, with an atrium at its centre. The hotel’s 310 spacious guestrooms are all appointed with thoughtful amenities and captivating views of Takaragaike Park and its surroundings. Upon arrival at the hotel, guests are graciously welcomed with a cup of matcha prepared in traditional Urasenke style.
Dining options are all designed to create an immersive experience in local, as well as international, culinary traditions. The hotel’s main restaurant, Ito-Zakura, serves French cuisine showcasing well-selected local ingredients from the region. Meanwhile, Takaragaike Japanese Restaurant presents an array of classic Kyoto cuisine and other Japanese regional favourites. At Tohen Chinese Restaurant, Beijing-style cuisine is served with a touch of Kyoto essence in the unique arrangements.
