The rainy season is a time when the refined tastes of Kyoto become more apparent. It makes for the perfect opportunity to enjoy sights such as green maple trees, beautifully blooming hydrangea and irises, and the especially fresh-looking appearance of the moss covered Kokedera temple.
Kyoto's Gion Festival takes place over the entire course of July, with the especially lively times being when you can see the floats all decorated and lit up during the Saki-Matsuri (July 14-17) and Ato-Matsuri (July 21-24). Around the hotel, you can enjoy green maples around Tofukuji Temple and Senyuji Temple, or if you're willing to go a bit further for some hidden spots, try Enkoji Temple, Rurikoin Temple, Rengeji Temple, the Kibune area, and Hakuryuen Garden.
The seventh month of the old agricultural calendar falls in what is currently August, so this is when Kyoto glistens with décor for the Tanabata Star Festival. You can appreciate the festivals at Kitano Tenmangu Shrine and Kibune Shrine, as well as at light-up events at the Kamo River and Horikawa River. You can also look forward to a Tanabata themed event on the hotel grounds.
