The Mitsui Fudosan Co., Ltd. and the Mitsui Fudosan Resort Management Co., Ltd. have announced the name of their first flagship property: HOTEL THE MITSUI KYOTO. Located in Nakagyo Ward, Kyoto City, this signature luxury hotel is scheduled to open in summer 2020.
“HOTEL THE MITSUI KYOTO, will represent the true essence of Japan, the world-renowned city of beauty, culture and heritage,” said General Manager, Manabu Kusui.
“Since ancient times, the Japanese people have shared an emotional connection with the unparalleled beauty of nature and the four seasons. The harmony between the natural environment, scenery and history is a story we can all relate to and is key to the ultimate hotel experience. This is expressed in our brand concept – Embracing Japan’s Beauty.”
HOTEL THE MITSUI KYOTO has been developed by an award-winning team of specialist masters in their own fields: Andre Fu for the interiors, Shunsaku Miyagi for the landscaping and Yohei Akao for the restaurant and spa. The entire team has been led by Akira Kuryu, master design advisor, recognised for his pursuit of architectural designs that blend with the surrounding environment.
Combining the storied past of the old capital with modern elements, the property features 160 guest rooms, including Onsen Suite rooms, and a Presidential Suite. Each room is a contemporary reimagining of the traditional Japanese tea room fashioned from meticulously selected natural materials and fitted using time-honoured techniques.
Target regions for the hotel include America, Asia Pacific and Europe.
