Hotel introduction

THE JUNEI HOTEL Kyoto was planned down to minute details to make skillful use of the bamboo and moon concept.

The roof-top garden is a dedicated space for moon appreciation. In this little bamboo-enclosed space, guests can watch the moon rise over the eastern hills and bask in its light.

Guest room design characteristics

The rooms are supplied with fragrant cypress bathtubs, various bamboo handicrafts, and art made with Yumekouro dyed fabrics, which have gradient colors akin to flickering light. Furthermore, the amenities are filled with top-quality, organic ingredients, such as moisture-retaining silk.

A new type of dining provided by FTG Company “Niku Kappo”

Auberge restaurant operated by FTG Company, which has over 60 chain locations across Japan, China, Hong Kong, Hawaii, and New York. Niku Kappo Futago, a restaurant to be opened on the hotel premises, follows a new line of business with a “relaxed, mature IKI” concept. IKI is a Japanese word meaning “chic” as well as “breath” and “will.”

Following THE JUNEI HOTEL Kyoto’s bamboo and moon concept, they will provide three “moon”-themed monthly course options centered around Wagyu beef that guests can enjoy with all five senses. The main courses are highly selective cuts of Wagyu beef, and there are many brands of sake to choose from to suit each serving. As Kyoto cuisine is already based on how it changes with the seasons, the monthly courses offer a new, fresh taste of “IKI” to enjoy throughout the year.
