Shimaya Stays eConcierge
Kyoto offers such a dazzling array of culinary, cultural and sightseeing experiences that it can be hard to decide where to go and what to do.
For guests who book a stay with us directly, our eConcierge team will create a detailed itinerary customised to suit your needs and interests. We will recommend restaurants and activities we have discovered as Kyoto natives and residents. We’ll also suggest transport options to help ensure that your journey to and from the city, as well as the trips you make within Kyoto, are as fuss- and trouble-free as possible.
The eConcierge itineraries are designed for self-guided holidays but, for guests who would like specialist commentary, we can arrange for guides, foodie tours and private tea gatherings.
Whether you’re interested in making sushi or delicate wagashi confections, in learning about meditation or the Way of Tea, in booking an entire restaurant for a family celebration, or in a hiking, cycling or driving holiday, we will do our best to make it happen.
