Kyoto Garden Palace Hotel


The Kyoto Garden Palace Hotel is part of a chain of Garden Palace Hotels in Fukuoka, Tokyo, Nagoya, Hiroshima, Kanazawa, Osaka and Sapporo.

Kyoto Garden Palace Hotel, Kyoto

Situated just across over the road from Kyoto's Imperial Palace (Gosho) and a short walk from the Marutamachi stop of Kyoto's subway, the hotel is ideally situated for exploring the north and eastern parts of the city. Just nearby are Go'o Shrine, St. Agnes Episcopal Church and a walk through the Gosho brings you to Nashinoki Shrine and Rozanji Temple on Teramachi. To the west is Kyoto Prefectural Office.

During the Edo Period (1603-1867) the Mito clan residence was situated on the land here and the Dai Nippon-shi history was compiled on the premises by Mito scholars.

Mito clan residence, Kyoto

In the Bakumatsu Period during the death throes of the Tokugawa regime, the Mito domain split between those who supported the restoration of the emperor (sonno-joi) and those who supported the Tokugawa shogunate (sabaku). A stone pillar records the history of these important events in Japanese history.
