Kyoto ITOYA Hotel
Newly opened stylish designer’s hotel on Karasuma Street
Kyoto ITOYA Hotel was opened in recent years. The narrow lane leads the guest into their cozy accommodation that is like a hidden secret. Originally, this was the site of an old yarn product store, “Itobun,” with a 143-year history that produced traditional Japanese braid and decoration tassels. When the store was moved and renovated at another location, the owner decided to open a hotel as it was a good area to welcome guests. The interior designer, Mr. Yoshiyuki Morii, skillfully introduced Itobun’s tradition by using a tassel decoration on the chandelier. Beds and the bathroom in the guest rooms are large, simple and functional. Their lounge performs multiple functions as a café, library and bar. ITOYA is constantly striving to achieve better service and comfort for their guests.
