Travellers' Choice 2018 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
Noku is located adjacent to Kyoto Imperial Palace and is right in the heart of 1,000 years of Japanese history. From rooms to services, Noku is designed to showcase the artisanal spirit of Kyoto life. Each of our 81 rooms has been furnished with individually selected art pieces that reflect the cultural elements of Kyoto. At Noku we wish to create a local experience for our guest. With our map, one can discover the neighbourhood's traditional craft galleries, heritage confectionaries, machiya houses and hidden restaurants. This immersive experience is unique for an inspiring Kyoto stay.

City Centre
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
