The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto
Expensive but pretty amazing hotel
Understated but luxury feel. Our room was probably a little small for the price but the staff were excellent. The pool is worth it for the money alone.

The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto
Best hotel in Japan
The ritz Carlton Kyoto is incredible. It is by far the best hotel I’ve ever stayed in. The service was impeccable. The raspberry croissants and macaroons were better than the ones we had in Paris. It is well located and the concierge is the absolute best. We cannot say enough great things about this hotel and it’s staff. We were truly sad when we had to leave.
