KYOTO:

Imperial Hotel is set to open a 60-key property in the Gion district in Kyoto, following the renovation of a historic landmark.

Scheduled to open in the spring of 2026, Imperial Hotel Kyoto will be the company’s first hotel since 1996 and its fourth property after its Tokyo, Kamikochi, and Osaka hotels.

The new hotel will occupy the site of Yasaka Kaikan – a historic building that was originally completed in 1936 – and the land on the north side of its main building and north building. It will house recreational facilities such as restaurants, bars, spas and gym.

Renovation of the building, which will begin in April 2022, will preserve the structure’s existing skeleton, including its iconic, multi-layered roof. Additionally, the newly added north side will be designed with due consideration for the existing design and the local landscape.
