Banyan Tree to Make Japan Debut

The independent global hospitality company with purpose, Banyan Group, has announced the opening of Banyan Tree Higashiyama Kyoto will be in the third quarter of 2024, which will mark the debut of the Banyan Tree brand in Japan.

Located in the historic Higashiyama Ward of Kyoto City, Banyan Tree Higashiyama Kyoto will feature 52 guestrooms, the signature Banyan Tree Spa and two distinctive dining experiences.

Banyan Tree Higashiyama Kyoto stands on the former site of the esteemed Hotel Ryozen, nestled in Kyoto’s renowned Higashiyama district, home to attractions such as Kiyomizu-dera Temple and the Kodai-ji Temple. The site boasts the rare Higashiyama Onsen hot spring, making it a cherished retreat for many. Redeveloping this property aligns with Banyan Tree Group’s commitment to preserving cultural heritage and sustainability for future generations.

Banyan Tree Higashiyama Kyoto harmonises with its natural surroundings through three distinctive gardens and a bamboo grove, offering a unique landscape experience. The hotel’s sustainable practices include preserving and reinforcing the historic stone walls from Hotel Ryozen, cultivating moss for the stone walls during construction and maintaining existing symbolic trees and the bamboo grove.
