NTT Urban Development and Prince Hotels to Open “The Hotel Seiryu Kyoto Kiyomizu” in Kyoto, Japan’s Premier Tourist Destination, in March 2020

NTT Urban Development and Prince Hotels will open “The Hotel Seiryu Kyoto Kiyomizu” in Kyoto, Japan’s former capital city and the country’s premier tourist destination, in March 2020. This project is being developed by NTT Urban Development and will be operated by Prince Hotels.

The hotel is a conversion of the former Kyoto Kiyomizu Elementary School, a part of Kyoto’s history and traditions, which opened in 1869. This school was loved by the local community for many years, and now it will be reborn as a luxury hotel with 48 guest rooms, restaurants, private baths, a gym, and more.

From 794, Kyoto was the capital of Japan for over a thousand years, and it flourished as the center of Japan of the course of the country’s history. With shrines, temples, and historic landmarks, the elegant culture of Kyoto is as rich as ever, charming people from across the world. The hotel will be approximately 8 minutes’ walk from the Kiyomizu-dera Temple, part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site “Historic Monuments of Ancient Kyoto,” and it will be ideally located for general sightseeing in Kyoto as well.

The name of the hotel combines two elements: “Kyoto Kiyomizu,” one of the world’s leading tourist sites and an area steeped in history, and “Seiryu,” the name of the guardian deity who was believed to have protected the surrounding Higashiyama district (eastern Kyoto) since antiquity. We chose this name to convey to the world how this hotel is unique to this area, taking advantage of the features of the former school campus and its rich tapestry of local flavor and historic value.

NTT Urban Development and Prince Hotels aim to create a one-of-a-kind luxury hotel that welcomes guests from across the world with the finest hospitality, while also respecting the character and history of the old building.
