Yasaka-dori Street in Kyoto is an ideal location to encounter the rich history of the city. Flanking the cobblestone streets are traditional wooden buildings.

If you want to explore the ins and outs of this part of Kyoto, we recommend staying at the RC HOTEL Kyoto Yasaka. Located on Yasaka-dori, it is only a 20-minute ride via bus or taxi to JR Kyoto Station.

Now, let's see what this fashionable hotel has to offer.

How to Get to RC HOTEL Kyoto Yasaka

The RC HOTEL Kyoto Yasaka is just two minutes from the historic landmark Yasaka Pagoda at Hokanji Temple.

Among the sea of wooden structures, the hotel's gray exterior stands out. The ROCCA & FRIENDS TRUCK, a drink stand run by a popular cafe in Kyoto and Osaka, is in front of the hotel.

The sign before the hotel entrance reads, "Slate-Roofed Four-Story Reinforced Concrete Building." This description, in fact, is the RC HOTEL's official name—with RC standing for "reinforced concrete."

Feel the Hotel's Unique Aesthetic at the Check-In Counter

The interior color is comprised of blue, silver, and brown shades, which add to the hotel's almost surreal aesthetic. It also contrasts with the historic streets outside.
