About The Limelight Kyoto

You’ll find The Limelight Kyoto right before your eyes when you walk out of Hanazono Station on the JR Sagano (San-in) Line in Kyoto, which is a quiet area in western Kyoto scattered with old, historic temples. We’re also conveniently situated two stops away from Saga-Arashiyama Station on the Sagano (San-in) Line. Aside from being a hop, skip, and a jump away from Arashiyama, we’re only an 11-minute train ride to Kyoto Station, a hub for trains traveling throughout Kansai.

We try to show everyone a good time in Hanazono and welcome everyone with open arms. We’ve taken small groups of our guests to our local favorite pub and also hold activities like Japanese classes for our foreign guests and expats who are residing in the area.

・Free Wi-Fi throughout the entire building

Accommodation Information

Our building consists of two facilities: on the second floor of our building is The Hanazono Inn at The Limelight Kyoto, which is our premium, cozy hostel exclusive to women ages 18 and older. Inside the dormitory area are bunk beds and personal cabins with light-blocking curtains, and our bathroom area is stocked with salon-grade hairdryers and other hair tools. When you’re in the commons area, you can cook, eat, and then mingle while sitting in a hammock, if you like!

Our other facility is located on the third floor of our building, which is called The Apartment Hotel at The Limelight Kyoto, because our entire building was refurbished from a former apartment building. This is a great option for families looking to have their own personal kitchen space and privacy.Hanazono is a great part of Kyoto to make your home base for travel around Kansai and western Japan. Locally, Hanazono boasts a down-to-earth and at-home atmosphere with family-run stores, restaurants, and pubs. Downstairs is a drugstore for anything you need during your stay, and right next to Hanazono Station is a 24-hour convenience store along with a supermarket. We also provide an English map of the surrounding area and those hidden gems that are around our building.
