Ritz Kids Kyoto Experiences

The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto aims to delight your child by making memories that last well beyond your stay with us. Ritz Kids is an engaging and immersive experience that builds upon the adventures of travel your child will always treasure.

As Jean-Michel Cousteau says, “All kids start out as scientists, constantly asking ‘Why? What’s that? How does it work?’” Ritz Kids resort experiences tap into that innate curiosity by introducing our youngest guests to both the natural wonders and the rich cultural traditions of our resort locations. Immersive and adventurous, the resort experiences provide your child with enthralling activities to reward their interest in the beauty and workings of the world we live in. With a diverse collection of activities based on the four pillars of the program – water, land, environmental responsibility and culture – kids are swept away by everything from coral reefs and forests, to recycling and sustainability, storytelling, art and even food.

Watch with a smile as your child explores and grows through Ritz Kids during your stay. They unearth a personal connection, respect and appreciation for the environment, make amazing discoveries that will last a lifetime and remain passionate and inspired long after your stay with us comes to an end.
