Mori Trust acquires hotel development site in Gion

On May 1, real estate developer Mori Trust announced the acquisition of 2,300 sqm of land in Kyoto’s Gion district with the aim of creating a luxury hotel of an international standard.

The property includes an older ryokan-style hotel that will be demolished. It adjoins Daiunin Temple, which houses the graves of Oda Nobunaga and Ishikawa Goemon, and is near Kodai-ji, Nene-no-michi, and Yasaka Shrine.

The developer has been expanding the opening of luxury hotels across Japan. In 2015, the company opened the Suiran, a Luxury Collection Hotel, Kyoto alongside the river in Arashiyama.
