Hyatt to launch temple lodging services in Kyoto

posted on December 7, 2015

U.S. company Hyatt Hotels is hoping to start offering temple lodging services to visitors to Kyoto as early as next year.

The company will provide guests at the Hyatt Regency Kyoto with the opportunity to stay at five well-known temples in the city, including Tenryuji, a World Heritage site, Nanzenji and Daitokuji. Guests will get the chance to experience Zen meditation sessions and receive lectures from chief priests about the history of the temples.

For a fee ranging from 100,000 yen ($808) to 200,000 yen per night, each temple will be able to accommodate one group of up to five people a day, with dinner and breakfast included.
