HOSOO Ltd., a generational family business that has been engaged in kimono-making since 1688 from its location in the textile district of Nishijin, Kyoto, has collaborated with HOTEL THE MITSUI KYOTO to create an accommodation plan for guests to enjoy their stay in Kyoto while wearing the finest kimono that Japan has to offer.
Around the time the first generation of HOSOO obi weavers were establishing their business in Nishijin, Mitsui family acquired the land at the junction of Nijo and Aburakoji, where HOTEL THE MITSUI KYOTO now stands.
