Leave the burden of planning to us.

Our package includes three nights in our luxurious junior suite (with breakfast), complete traditional wedding attire for both bride and groom, wedding ceremony at Kamigamo Shrine, limousine services, and a wedding dinner at the hotel.

Kamigamo Shrine:

*Kamigamo Shrine, with a history of several thousand years, is the oldest Shinto shrine in the ancient city of Kyoto. The shrine is not only designated a UNESCO World Heritage site, but most of its buildings have been classified as Important Cultural Properties. The Shrine’s famed Aoi Matsuri (Hollyhock Festival), held every year in May, is considered one of the three most important festivals of the year in Kyoto. The magnificent procession of thousands of people in elegant costumes dates back some 1,000 years and is a fascinating spectacle to see. Tens of thousands of visitors, including many from abroad, flock to the city for this colorful event. Aside from the festival period, the area around Kamigamo Shrine is completely tranquil, exuding an atmosphere of peace not readily found in other areas of the city.
