A little more authentic way of life in Kyoto;
Discover the real Japan at Rinn
Rinn Nishinokyo stands in near “Nijo-jo Castle” which is one of world heritage sites in Kyoto
and “Shinsen-en Garden.” This area called “Nishino-kyo” has a lot of history.
Nijo-jo Castle was built in 1603 as the Kyoto residence of Ieyasu Tokugawa, the first shogun of the Edo Period.
Since then, Nijo-jo Castle has been watching over the changing history in Japan.
Just south of Nijo-jo Castle, Shinsen-en Garden is all that now remains of Emperor Kanmu’s original place
and pressure garden built from 794, when the capital was moved to Kyoto.
Shinsen-en was once the playground of the Heian nobility who held moon-viewing and boating parties on the lake.
Also, Shinsen-en was told the birthplace of cherry-blossom viewing party.
Rinn Nishinokyo expresses the history with art.
All guestrooms have headboards of “pine trees,” “cranes,” “peafowls” and “cherry blossoms.”
They are symbols of longevity and fortune.
