The Westin Miyako Kyoto, an urban resort surrounded by the green Higashiyama Hills, is located right next to the subway station and within walking distance of downtown. With convenient access to the city, guests can explore the surrounding area or stay close by.

The capital of Japan for more than a thousand years, Kyoto is still considered the country's spiritual capital. Graced with an abundance of temples, shrines, palaces, and gardens, Kyoto boasts 17 UNESCO World Heritage sites. It also maintains a rich cultural heritage as seen in major festivals and rituals such as the Daimonji bonfires.

Refreshing recreation is found nearby at Seta Golf Course in Shiga, about 30 minutes away. We are also within easy walking distance of the famous Nanzenji Temple and Heian Shrine, the Kyoto Art Museum, and the zoo. The Gion District, host to many great local eateries, is also nearby.

Transportation Options
We recommend flying into Osaka-Itami International Airport (ITM), about 48 kilometers from the resort. Airport shuttle buses are available to transport guests to Kyoto Station.

Although outside of Kyoto, travel to the resort from Kansai International Airport (KIX)—120 kilometers away—and Chūbu Centrair International Airport (NGO)—170 kilometers away—is simple and convenient. Guests arriving at Chūbu Centrair International Airport (NGO) will first catch a bullet train to Nagoya Station, where transfers are available to Kyoto Station. From Kansai International Airport (KIX), guests can take a bullet train directly to Kyoto Station.

Our complimentary shuttle bus operates to and from Kyoto Station, the nearest train and subway hub. We're also just three kilometers from downtown Kyoto, with a subway stop located conveniently close by. Cabs are always available at the front entrance of the resort for getting around Kyoto and the surrounding area.

If you are traveling by car, please see driving directions, from the airport or any other location.
