Following the opening of Agora Kyoto Karasuma
Agora Kyoto Shijo has now opened


Following the opening of “Agora Kyoto Karasuma” on Friday April 30th, “Agora Kyoto Shijo” will have its Grand Opening on Thursday July 1st, 2021 with the support and cooperation of many people.


Both hotels’ concept is “SATEI: A place to experience the town spirit. – A history of New things”.

For more than a thousand years, Kyoto has always been at the forefront of culture, seeking, incorporating and enjoying “new things.”

Miyako in Kyoto can be said to be a place where new things are constantly gathering, both domestically and internationally, and a new culture is born by fusing with the existing culture.

From a long time ago, ‘Relics’ have been the attraction of this ancient city. However, they have always continued to challenge new things and from the reiterations, tradition is changed and history is made.


At the SATEI <= tea house>, which welcomes you with the tea ceremony of Chanoyu , with the host and guest unified in the spirit of Kyoto, we endeavor to provide you with the best experience.

From touching the side of Kyoto that focuses on “new things” rather than “what remains”, you will be filled with an excitement for adventure. New experiences await you.

Near the intersection of Shijo-dori and Karasuma-dori, which can be said to be the center of Kyoto, and a few minutes’ walk from Kyoto Municipal Subway “Shijo” Station and Hankyu Kyoto Line “Karasuma” Station, you can explore Kyoto in all directions. The 80 guest rooms of “Agora Kyoto Shijo” have utilities concentrated near the entrance, and the bedroom is a space where guests can concentrate on relaxing. The original triangular furniture is not only for sitting, but guests can enjoy using in their own way.

Both “Agora Kyoto Shijo” and “Agora Kyoto Karasuma”  aim to be a hotel that will be loved and proud of not only by customers but also local residents and business partners.



We look forward to serving you soon.
