Date published: 2024/06/26

Arashiyama in Kyoto is a popular tourist destination where the ever-changing beauty of nature's four seasons and rich historical heritage come to life. During autumn, the mountains are adorned with colorful foliage, with the peak viewing period typically from late November to early December, though this may vary with temperature changes. (*Please note that the best viewing times may change due to temperature fluctuations.)
One of the charms is the ability to quietly enjoy these breathtaking views right from the windows of local accommodations.

Here we introduce a carefully selected list of lodgings where you can fully enjoy Arashiyama's fall foliage through the window. Based on official hotel websites and Booking.com, we provide information on especially scenic rooms from hotels with an overall rating above 8 on Booking.com.

Please enjoy the autumn leaves in a private space away from the crowds. We recommend booking your favorite accommodation before it fills up!
