Reservations for Premium Guided Tours are now available

  • Special Visit
  • 2022.12.04
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 large lacquered table in Kiri no Ma reflects the winter scenery of the garden, creating an exquisite space of “harmonization of garden and architecture,” while in Taki no Ma, the sound of the waterfall in the stillness of winter will clear the minds of visitors.
Why not experience the charm of Kyoto State Guest House through this special guided tour?
