A NIGHT IN A ryokan is already a singular experience, but a new, unconventional accommodation concept in Kyoto provides a stay that’s truly immersive. From new hotel brand Ango, Enso Ango is situated across five separate buildings in the Shimogyo Ward, encouraging guests to walk the city streets and become grounded in everyday culture. From your room in the wooden Fuya I house, head down the street to Fuya II to visit the traditional tea room designed by late designer Shigeru Uchida. Walk around the corner to Tomi I, where the guest kitchen also hosts an Obanzai cooking class, to the restaurant at Tomi II, or the intimate bar at Yamato. With Kyoto’s greatest charms often tucked away in the city’s smallest nooks, we promise the extra steps will be worth it.
