The breakfast served here is elegant, to say the least; it is a feast for the eyes as much as the stomach. Enjoy a healthy arrangement of fresh fruit, freshly baked pastries, a salad, two kinds of juice, local dairy milk, and coffee or tea. Remember to sit back and relax, observing Kyoto’s historic skyline and distant mountains and temples, all waiting for you to explore.
