  • 2023.06.15
Kyoto State Guest House will be offering premium, small-group guided tours on the following dates.
In addition to the regular guided tours of Kyoto State Guest House, visitors will have the opportunity to see Taki no Ma, which has been open only to distinguished guests, and Suimei no Ma, where the summit meetings are held. In Taki no Ma, a special seated viewing experience is available.
The view of the waterfall from Taki no Ma will cool you down in the summer heat, while in Kiri no Ma, lush greenery of the garden is reflected in the large lacquered table, creating an exquisite space of “harmonization of garden and architecture.”
Why not experience the charm of Kyoto State Guest House through this special guided tour?
