Sushi, Sumo and snow-capped Mount Fuji. The land of the rising sun is often cloaked in mystery and allure for travellers, evoking thoughts of exoticism and discovery. Although visitors often head straight for the bright neon lights of Tokyo, Japan’s second city of Kyoto is just as fascinating, its lush greenery and open spaces providing an excellent juxtaposition to the frenetic pace of the capital. This summer, Hyatt Hotels and Resorts have created the new “Explore Classic Japan” package, twinning Tokyo with Kyoto to enable guests to experience the very best of this amazing country.
Hyatt Hotels and Resorts have three world-class properties in Tokyo, the Park Hyatt, the Grand Hyatt and the Hyatt Regency, providing the ideal abode in the city for all tastes and budgets. Kyoto is home to the Hyatt Regency Kyoto, one of the very best addresses in the city and perfectly located in Higashiyama Shichijo, the cultural heart of Kyoto.
With the Explore Classic Japan package, guests can combine a stay at any of the Tokyo properties with the Hyatt Regency in Kyoto and benefit from 20% off all accommodation, a fabulous forth night free in Kyoto and the following added discounts on stays of 3 nights or more at one property in each city. The package is available from now until 29th December 2011. Guests can travel between Tokyo and Kyoto on the high speed bullet train (Shinkansen), bookable through the concierge at any of the four participating hotels. The journey takes 135 minutes, trains run daily, every 7-10 minutes. You can also travel by JR Rail Pass. A 7-day seat pass costs 28,300 JPY per person.
