Enso Ango Hotel in Kyoto Is Japan’s First Dispersed Hotel ⇒ Enso Ango, Kyoto’s first dispersed hotel, is spread across five different buildings in the city, aiming to connect travellers with the city’s bustling daily life and its culture and to blend into the city’s environment without having to demolish old sites.
Each of the five buildings has their own design style and concept. Enso Fuya I is dedicated to art and is reminiscent of the classical Machiya era. You can also spot pottery pieces made by the popular artist Masanobu Ando. Enso Fuya II is a more modern construction which embodies the Japanese culture of zen, including a tea room and a tatami room in the hotel for meditation and mindfulness.
Both of these buildings are located in the Fuyacho-dori area of Kyoto, hence their name.
Enso Ango’s Tomi I is based on dining and communication, featuring a guest kitchen that’s perfect for family gatherings or events and where the hotel hosts their Obanzai cooking class, where participants can learn Kyoto’s traditional cuisine.
As for Tomi II, this building was designed by Swiss atelier oï and features Japanese light shades and Kiyomizu pottery plates as decor items, honouring Kyoto’s creativity. Both these buildings are located in Tominokoji-dori.
Last but not least, Yamato I is the hotel’s smallest building, located in Gion, Yamatooji-dori. The theme of this installation is minimalism, where bunk beds maximize the overall space and where functionality is prioritised. The building is decorated with paper art by Naoki Terada. Each of the buildings offers different amenities, such as bars, restaurants and terraces, but all of them have laundry rooms, guest rooms and free wi-fi that guests can enjoy to the fullest.
