JUNEI will open THE JUNEI HOTEL Kyoto Imperial Palace Gardens West on Saturday, July 1, 2017.

THE JUNEI HOTEL Kyoto Imperial Palace Gardens West is a community-based small luxury hotel with a total of eight guest rooms, designed on the concept of “amenities that enliven the five senses.”

The rooms, which have an atmosphere that is traditionally Japanese with modern flair, are modeled after the image of “Kyo-machiya,” or traditional Kyoto-style wooden townhouses. They are each furnished with “tatami”-matted space resembling a tea ceremony room, and with pieces of furniture that have been handcrafted by making full use of traditional skills. An art display of “Kyo Karakami,” Kyoto-style decorative paper with motifs transferred by the classical printing technique of hand pressing, adds a luxurious accent to the atmosphere.

We welcome our guests with a cup of top-grade Uji green tea direct from circular tea plantations in Wazuka, a famous area registered with Kyoto Prefecture as a landscape asset. It is accompanied by a sweet treat of the season prepared by Kameya Kiyonaga, a 400-year-old Kyoto confectionery shop.

Every guest room is equipped with a custom-made bathtub of Shigaraki (*) ceramic ware to warm your body to the core and relax you out of travel weariness from inside.

(*) Shigaraki is one of Japan’s Six Ancient Kilns.

We also guarantee you utmost comfort as we use beds, made by Serta of the United States, which are also chosen by luxury hotels around the world. We also use “futon” mattresses produced by luxury bedding company Kyoto Nishikawa.

THE JUNEI HOTEL Kyoto Imperial Palace Gardens West offers optional plans in cooperation with local partners as well as national and municipal facilities. “Breakfast Inclusive Plan” enables you to enjoy in your room a breakfast menu prepared by a long-established caterer. Also available are hands-on participatory plans such as “Kimono Dressing Plan” coupled with a one-day kimono rental service, which makes it fun to take a stroll in Kyoto.

We are aiming to contribute to the tourism industry in Japan by calling attention to the country’s charm, tradition and history.
