AOI Philosophers Path Villa
A premium stay which lets you feel the beauty of Japan in quiet serenity.
The private Japanese garden in Kangetsu-tei was created and designed by Ogawa Jihei, a famous garden architect who also built beautiful gardens in famous scenic sites such as Heian-Jingu Shrine, Maruyama Park and Murin-an Villa. Benefiting from the surrounding scenery of Higashiyama Mountain and with fresh water continuously flowing from the Lake Biwa Canal, the garden in Kangetsu-tei creates a unique atmosphere where you can feel relaxed as you listen to the sound of flowing water and regain your inner peace in comfortable quietness. The artful and detailed design can be found everywhere in its traditional Sukiya-style architecture and provides you with a unique experience of feeling closer to an essential part of Japanese culture.

The Hotel’s surroundings - Philosopher’s Path
From Meiji to Showa era, there were many villa and gardens built around the area where the original Nanzenji temple was located in, and those gardens were created by a famous garden designer, Ogawa Jihei, who was the seventh principal of this family business. Nowadays, this area becomes one of the most beautiful walks in Kyoto. Although many tourists like to take a walk from Nanzenji temple to Silver temple, we would like to recommend you the following route: Murian->Nanzenji temple->Nomura Hekiunso Villa->Eikando temple->Sumitomo Collection->Ko-un-ji temple->Philosopher’s Path->Ginkakuji temple
