Washigamine Pavilion at Aman Kyoto – Japan

Set in a secret garden at the heart of a forest, Aman Kyoto rests a stone’s throw from Kyoto’s golden Kinkaku-ji Temple and 16 other Unesco World Heritage Sites. The resort is nonetheless a secluded world apart, with light-filled suites and pavilions set in tranquil glades and steaming onsen offering healing in the Aman Spa.

Aman Kyoto’s rooms and pavilions are a contemporary homage to the traditional Japanese Ryokan inn, strikingly minimalist in their geometry, and serving as a window onto their spectacular natural settings. Interiors are spacious and light-filled, allowing each space to exist and breathe with the landscape and historic forested gardens that surround, instilling a sense of calm.

Surrounded by nature in the highest and most secluded area of the resort, the east-facing Washigamine Pavilion looks over the entire garden and the Hieisan in the distance. A trekking path leads directly from the pavilion through the surrounding forest and various private meditation gardens can be found nearby. At 241 square metres (2,594 square feet) the pavilion is Aman Kyoto’s largest accommodation and features a living room, a traditional Japanese Tatami room, a Western dining room and a kitchen area. Two en-suite bedrooms feature natural woods, floor-to-ceiling windows, tatami flooring and tokonoma alcoves, and are connected to the living-dining area. For guests who would like to experience a stay more similar to the traditional Japanese Ryokan inn, futons can be provided in the Japanese Tatami room.
