Favourably situated less than one kilometre from Kyoto Station and just a 3-minute walk from JR Kyoto Station Hachijo (East Exit) is Rihga Gran Kyoto, a modern hotel with elegant Japanese décor. It is the perfect place to be, especially if you are travelling during winter or cooler seasons, as you can enjoy the hotel’s charming Onsen.
