Special Nighttime Illumination at Kyoto State Guest House

March 29 , 2017

Kyoto State Guest House has decided to extend the opening time. Night coming on, in the darkness of the Kyoto Gyoen National Garden, the soft light floating throughout the sliding screens "Shoji" of the Kyoto State Guest House casts silently a relaxing atmosphere like a Japanese-style lantern. We would like to offer the opportunity to enjoy the same relaxing and peaceful atmosphere as the foreign dignitaries feel during their stay, by expressing our hearty "Omotenashi" mind with a warm and graceful light.
