Landmark hotel in Kyoto
The picturesque beauty of old Kyoto survives on Shinmonzen Dori, the Street of the Artists. Sustained by a vibrant community of galleries, antique shops, and art lovers, these historic alleys exude the peaceful energy of the lived-in and well-loved.
Joining this artistic community is The Shinmonzen, a luxury inn with a modern Japanese design by Tadao Ando, cosmopolitan accents by Rémi Tessier, and a world-class collection of contemporary art. With just nine spacious suites, all with verandas overlooking the Shirakawa River, The Shinmonzen provides a highly personalized experience and a relaxing refuge in the heart of Gion.
As art exists in the delicate interplay between preservation of time-honored skills and creative innovation, The Shinmonzen draws on the exacting attention to detail that characterizes traditional Japanese hospitality while bringing a warmer, more agile approach to service. Add a refined epicureanism shaped by sister property Villa La Coste in Provence and an environmentally conscious ethos and you have a new standard for Kyoto luxury.
