CONCEPT

  • Compact luxury envisioned at Villa Sanjo Muromachi Kyoto

    The luxury that we boast is not limited to being sumptuous. We have prepared our guestrooms with a main focus placed on producing the compactness of having what is required in good, required quantities – on delivering quality that is substantial and fine-tuned. Our space confined to a total of 12 rooms also creates an ideal sense of distance between our guests and staff – not too close and not too distant, just the right balance for the two sides to better interact.

  • Compact luxury envisioned at Villa Sanjo Muromachi Kyoto
  • Tradition and innovation Essence of Kyoto vividly present in everyday life

    An alley wet from water sprinkled for coolness. A soft light escaping through openings of a latticed door. Although being right in the center of Kyoto with convenient access to town, Villa Sanjo Muromachi Kyoto is situated in an area where the sounds of life - unchanged since olden times - can be heard. We invite you to unwind and spend a time of relaxation, letting yourself go along with the leisurely pace of the ancient capital and relishing the changing seasons and the essence of Kyoto vividly present in daily life.

  • A local, Kyoto-based publisher has become a concierge delivering travel solutions

We attentively listen to voices of our guests, whose purposes of stay vary, and suggest a solution coordinated to make their travel "substantial," "fine-tuned" and "high quality."

STAY STYLE

  • Launched at Kyoto's cultural crossroads Gion Festival floats parade right in front of your eyes

    Sanjo Street, which extends from Sanjo Ohashi Bridge to Kyoto's city center, has long been a site of bustling people traffic and still contains old buildings constructed in the leading style of each distinct era. Meanwhile, Muromachi Street, the eponym for the Muromachi era, is lined with houses of generation after generation of rich merchants; throughout the Edo era, it developed as a district of kimono textile wholesalers.
    Sanjo Muromachi, the crossroads of those two axes of cultural interchange, is a spot where visitors can to this day get a real-life appreciation of Kyoto's culture and history, including scenes of magnificent floats going by during the Gion Festival.
