Overview

Featuring rooms that boast modern decor and pay homage to the city’s historical roots, Shiki Suites is a stylish alternative to a regular hotel and is located conveniently close to Kyoto Station, within cycling distance of the city’s major attractions.

Shiki Suites is the epitome of easy city living with a taste of laid-back luxury. Each spacious room features state-of-the-art facilities and a generous bathroom, kitchen, and living space. Guests looking for both the privacy of a self-contained apartment and a modern hotel’s hospitality and services will be happy to know Shiki Suites has both.

Location

Shiki Suites is conveniently located in Umekoji, less than a 10-minute walk from Kyoto Station, making it an ideal location for exploring nearby prefectures like Osaka, Nara, and Hyogo or the wider Kyoto prefecture. A short walk west of Shiki Suites sits Umekoji park, a popular park with a sprawling garden, a railway museum, and an eco-friendly aquarium. A 10-minute walk south from Shiki Suites is Kyoto’s famous Toji Temple, a renowned temple with an iconic five-story pagoda.

Looking a little further out, Shiki Suites is ideally situated in a position in the middle of the city, making it the perfect home base for those wanting to explore the city’s sights by rental bicycle. An easy and scenic 20-minute walk or 10-minute bicycle ride east is the Kamo River, home to vibrant city scenes and some of the city’s best dining destinations. Another 15 minutes from the Kamo River is Kiyomizu-dera to the northeast and to the southeast sits Fushimi Inari Shrine.

For those wanting to explore the real old-world Kyoto, head to Wachigai-ya. A 15-minute walk from Shiki Suites, Wachigai-ya is a preserved geisha teahouse or okiya dating from the 1680s. Along the street on which this historic landmark sits, is an endless selection of traditional Japanese homes and buildings, all retaining that elusive and enthralling classic Kyoto charm.

Shiki’s true passion is connecting travelers with authentic local experiences. The company’s passion for connecting people and showcasing Kyoto’s rich and diverse culture has culminated in the creation of S’wich, a cafe, and bar located within the Shiki Suites complex. S’wich is a casual, open cafe with floor-to-ceiling windows that lead out onto the quaint traditional house-lined street.

S’wich is more than just a cafe and bar. The company has worked with key figures in Kansai’s culinary and cultural scenes to create a space where visitors and locals can meet, connect, and share experiences and ideas in an open and social environment.
