Story & Recommendation
Experience “Omotenashi” somehere used to host important overseas guests
The Kyoto State Guest House plays host to the events for foreign leaders. In order to promote Japan’s tourism industry, the Kyoto State Guest House opened year around to the public in July 2016. Before that, this treasured building could only be visited by people chosen by lottery for two weeks during summer. Now you can walk around inside just like one of the important guests. A Japanese garden is arranged in the middle of the building so you can enjoy its beautiful scenery from any room. There are various rooms in the State Guest House: Kyoto cuisine is served in the Kiri no Ma (Japanese-style Banquet Room), Western style dinner parties are held in the Fuji no Ma (Banquet Hall), and the other two rooms are Yubae no Ma (Large Conference Room), and Juraku no Ma (Anteroom). You can enjoy both traditional Japanese and modern craftsmanship. As Kyoto State Guest House is situated in the eastern part of Kyoto Gyoen National Garden—where the Kyoto Imperial Palace is located—how about taking a visit while you’re at it?
