JAPANESE BATH EXPERIENCE

See one of Higashiyama's most famous landmarks, Yasaka Pagoda, from the warmth and comfort of our private hot tub, Tau-yasaka. The bath waters change with the seasons to create a relaxing experience for all the senses. Guests can also enjoy a Japanese sake spa experience in their own rooms with a complimentary bottle of local Fushimi sake to be added to the bath. With skin brightening and moisturizing properties, sake is one of Japan's long-kept beauty secrets.
