MGallery Kyoto Yura Hotel opens in Japan’s ancient capital and promises to take you on a journey to the crossroads of time in the dawn of modern Japan with interiors blending elements reminiscent of the legendary Samurai era. The hotel pays homage to the traditions of Kyoto through art and heritage, providing a unique experience inspired by the essence of the local neighbourhood – a key consideration for all MGallery Hotels.
“The opening of Kyoto Yura Hotel MGallery strengthens our luxury footprint in Japan following the successful launch of Pullman Tokyo Tamachi last year. Home to 17 stunning UNESCO World Heritage Sites, Kyoto is considered the heart and soul of traditional Japan. Famed for its great temples, beautiful gardens and intricate works of art, the place offers the touch of a modern city as well as the historical treasure.” said Patrick Basset, Chief Operating Office at Accor for Upper Southeast & Northeast Asia and the Maldives.

Located within walking distance of the hotel are Kyoto’s most scenic spots that include the famed geisha district of Gion, Yasaka Shinto Shrine and downtown district of Kawaramachi. You and your loved ones can enjoy an evening walk or morning run along the picturesque Kamo River.
At the heart of Kyoto lies Gion, the city’s most popular entertainment district and the centre of its traditional arts. The streets of Gion are characterised by old wooden townhouses (Machiya) featuring teahouses (Ochaya), shops and local restaurants. The buildings give the district a beautiful old world charm. Apart from temples and shrines, Gion and the geisha culture play a big part in Kyoto’s history while the surrounding vibrant downtown area is also home to some of the best shopping districts in the city.
“Kyoto is the cultural heart of the country renowned for its popular temples and shrines. The MGallery brand is inspired by the destination enriched through arts, history and cultural experiences. MGallery Kyoto Yura Hotel offers travellers memorable moments by blending the refined French art of hospitality with wholehearted Japanese hospitality known as omotenashi in one of Japan’s most beautiful cities.” said Kazunori Tanaka, General Manager of Kyoto Yura Hotel MGallery.
