Hotel Ethnography Kikoku no Mori

Hotel Ethnography Kikoku no Mori owes its name to the nearby Kikoku-tei garden also known as “Shosei-en garden”, a beautiful green space/oasis belonging to the Higashi Honganji Temple - the head temple of the Otani school of the Shin sect of Buddhism. As this neighborhood history and growth is closely linked to the nearby temple it is rich in items of interest, both secular and sacred, surrounded by old stores which sell manners of accessories for home altars.
Enjoy the beautiful and rustic atmosphere of the Shosei-en neighborhood and take a stroll in its tranquil grounds to step out of time to forget about the urban life in Kyoto.
