For hundreds of years, Arashiyama has been the tranquil retreat for the nobles of Kyoto.


The building was a hub where locals would come to enjoy the world-famous "Gozan no Okuribi (or Daimonji)" summer festival, where bonfires in the shape of massive Japanese characters are set ablaze on five mountains, from the rooftop.

The GrandWest Arashiyama opened as a hotel on September 1st, 2017, not only to serve the travelers looking for the perfect place to settle in for the night.

Our aim is to provide the ideal environment where all our guests can decompress and fully enjoy Arashiyama.

We hope you enjoy your stay.


Sincerely President Miya Matsushita

The GrandWest Arashiyama Owner
