SPA Treatments

At HOTEL THE MITSUI KYOTO we have prepared a set of unique SPA treatments, including body treatments featuring original massage oils.

Based on the ancient principles of Japanese traditional Anma Massage – combined innovative facial treatments developed overseas – we have prepared a number of treatment options that focus on Ying/Yang Balance and the Five Elements (metal, wood, water, fire and earth). These traditional techniques, blended with innovative approaches, are what makes the SPA treatments on offer at HOTEL THE MITSUI KYOTO so special.

Enjoy our SPA treatments together with a visit to the Thermal Spring and Private Onsen and embark on a truly pampering SPA journey that can only be experienced in Kyoto.

SPA Experiences


The ALAENA Facial is an anti-aging treatment inspired by traditional anma massage beauty techniques practiced for centuries in Japan. The SPA at HOTEL THE MITSUI KYOTO is the first location in Japan to offer ALAENA, an all-hand facial treatment using spa products created from natural, organic ingredients enhanced by medical biotechnology. Our experienced therapists will draw on their knowledge and techniques to restore and reinvigorate your skin.

Treatments based on Ying/Yang Balance and the Five Elements

Our menu of treatment options is based on balancing the body and mind – the central concept of Ying/Yang Balance and the Five Elements. HOTEL THE MITSUI KYOTO has developed a number of original oil blends, which together with THERA products made in Japan – sourced from plants native to these islands and long held as a natural way to promote health and beauty – make for a unique set of SPA treatment options. Enjoy a relaxing visit to the SPA to help regain balance in both mind and body.
