Stepping into the residence through its separate entrance you will find a completely renovated space, your hidden, quiet retreat in the historical center of Kyoto. The central room of the residence faces our Japanese moss garden. Just settling down in one of the lounge chairs and looking into the garden, you will feel a different sense of time, a deeper connection to the essentials of life. It is a place where you might stay a whole day just being or reading a book. Follow your heart and enjoy every moment. Kura 298 is a separate residence, where your privacy will be respected. Yet we are nearby in the gallery to offer assistance or advice. On Kyoto’s cold winter days gas and floor heating will keep you warm and comfortable.
