Excellent hotel. Easily accessible by car and close to shopping areas. Fantastic service.

Set in a secret garden at the heart of a 32-hectare forest, Aman Kyoto Resort is a secluded otherworldly retreat: moss-covered boulders glow emerald-like in the lush undergrowth, winding footpaths link tranquil forest glades, and streams provide a soothing soundtrack broken only by birdsong. From this peaceful haven, where gardens, forest and healing waters rejuvenate body and mind, guests can explore all that Kyoto has to offer on uniquely curated, behind-the-scenes Aman Journeys.

Aman Kyoto rests a stone’s throw from Kyoto’s golden Kinkaku-ji Temple and 16 other Unesco World Heritage Sites. The resort is located in the foothills of the iconic Hidari Daimonji mountain, in Kyoto's northern Takagamine district, about 30 minutes by car from Kyoto Station. It is a one-hour drive from Osaka International Airport or a two-hour drive or 90-minute express train ride from Kansai International Airport.

Location Summary
Aman Kyoto rests a stone’s throw from Kyoto’s golden Kinkaku-ji Temple and 16 other Unesco World Heritage Sites. The resort is located in the foothills of the iconic Hidari Daimonji mountain, in Kyoto's northern Takagamine district, about 30 minutes by car from Kyoto Station. It is a one-hour drive from Osaka International Airport or a two-hour drive or 90-minute express train ride from Kansai International Airport.
Banquets & Meetings
Whether seeking the full romanticism of a Shinto ceremony or simply to imbue an upcoming event with a sense of locality, the sacred rituals of Japan can be easily integrated into any occasion using Aman Kyoto as a base. Just 30 minutes by car from Kyoto Station, away from the bustle of the city, the resort accommodates a variety of celebrations, from intimate gatherings to large-scale events and business retreats with tailored itineraries.
Meeting Space
Aman Kyoto’s design by Kerry Hill Architects encourages connection to the great outdoors. Whether coming together for a business retreat or a meeting, the resort’s light-filled spaces offer a blank canvas from which to bring your event to life.
Fine Dining On Site
Sample the peerless art of Japanese hospitality at Taka-An, where Aman’s gifted chef presents an omakase (set menu) dining experience. Or savour Western and local cuisines at the convivial Living Pavilion, with its fire-warmed interiors and breathtaking garden terrace.
Spa Facility
The mineral-rich water that springs near Aman Kyoto is central to the philosophy at the resort’s Aman Spa. Traditional onsen bathing facilities deliver relaxation and healing in their purest forms, while a range of treatments tap into Japan’s plentiful natural apothecary – including Kyoto green tea, tamba kuromame black beans, local sake and cold-pressed camellia oil.
Ecological Tourism
Aman Kyoto shares its forested slopes with nearby Unesco-protected ‘Golden Temple’ - sixteen other World Heritage Sites are located nearby, including Ryoan-ji’s Zen rock garden, and Ninna-ji Temple with its picturesque grounds. Takagamine and its neighbouring districts were havens for artisans in the 16th and 17th centuries – in particular weavers. Said to be the original designers of Aman Kyoto’s garden, they are also the reason for the garden’s revival by the property’s most recent owner, who envisaged a textile museum in its midst.
Hiking
Aman Kyoto’s garden changes like a kaleidoscope with the seasons. Winter’s camellias are spectacular against the garden’s evergreen Japanese cedars, andromeda and lush wood ferns, until February’s plum blossoms signal spring’s arrival. March and April’s famous cherry blossoms segue into summer’s plethora of blooms, from azaleas and peonies, to hydrangeas and irises. Autumn sets the garden’s Japanese maples on fire, as their magnificent red and orange foliage competes for attention with multi-hued chrysanthemums. The garden also features some rare endemic species, including asarum nipponicum, or ‘wild ginger’.
