Stay period: August 11 - August 16, 2018

Check out the Gozan Okuribi bonfires lit on five mountainsides around Kyoto on August 16th. It is said that this particular date is the day that the dead who have come back to visit their living relatives for the summer will depart once again for the spiritual world. For all of those in Kyoto this season, stay at The Ritz-Carlton, Kyoto and enjoy the sight of the send-off fires burning in the night. The most famous "Dai" letter can be seen from our Luxury, Garden Terrace Suite, Corner Suite KITA and Suite KAMOGAWA. Enjoy the special in-room dining bento box dinner including a bottle of Dassai sake in the evening.
