Takagamine Pavilion

Aman Kyoto Secret Garden Living Area, Takagamine Suite - Aman Kyoto, Japan

Located on raised land, the east-facing pavilion pays homage to the traditional Japanese Ryokan inn and looks over the entire garden with the Hieizan mountain in the distance. 

Perched above a six-metre tall hand crafted ancient stone wall and offering floating views over the maple and cedar forest, the pavilion offers total immersion in the surrounding landscape. The spacious 226 square metres (2433 square feet) pavilion features a living room, a traditional Japanese Tatami room, Western dining room and 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.
