Set within the former garden of a textile museum, kids will have fun walking along the whimsical stone pathways that wind their way along the forest floor. Close to all the famed sites, including the golden temple that is in Kinkakuji. The Aman Kyoto opens November 2019.
The brocade on the cushions were created by a Japanese atelier who creates textiles for Dior and the handcrafted floors come with six-figure price tags, but you have no fear about taking kids to the Four Seasons Kyoto. In fact, the team will arrange for cute amenities to be left in your room for your tots and there will be milk and cookies at the turndown service.
If you have older kids (aged 13 and above), you should take a look at the Hoshinoya in Kyoto. This sweet traditional retreat that’s set on the edge of a forest, which is home to monkey and deer.
