Beyond Kyoto

Full-time concierge will take you to hidden parts of Kyoto where traditional crafts have been nurtured. You will visit studios, temples, restaurants, gardens, and teahouses that are normally off limits to tourists. At these places, craftsmen, artisans, etc. who are the living embodiment of Kyoto’s 1,200-year-old culture invite you as guests into their private world and tell you about their backgrounds and their techniques. The Beyond Kyoto© Experience is a bespoke form of hospitality. You work with the concierge in advance to decide what you will experience, when you will stay, and where you will go.

You can enjoy an experience that you could never obtain as a regular tourist, providing you with a lifelong connection to traditional crafts and the city of Kyoto.
