Kyoto, Japan - March 3 (Girl's Day in Japan), 2014
The Hotel Granvia Kyoto, recently awarded as one of the "Top 25 Hotels in Japan‟ in three categories - "Top Hotels‟, "Luxury ‟, and "Romance‟ in the 2014 Travelers‟ Choice® awards, now continues on its forward path towards satisfying the special and diverse needs of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, or Transgender (LGBT) couples.
Same-sex marriage is not yet legal in Japan, and the number of wedding venues that accept same-sex couples is very limited. In cooperation with Shunkoin-temple*, Hotel Granvia Kyoto is now offering exclusive traditional Japanese weddings for same-sex couples from around the world! The complete three-night package includes everything you need for the wedding; i.e., a three-night stay in a luxurious Jr. Suite room, daily Breakfast, complete traditional Japanese wedding attire for two, a customized seasonal wedding bouquet, a traditional Buddhist wedding ceremony at Shunkoin Temple, limousine service to and from the temple, and a traditional wedding-night dinner for two. The mystique and enchantment of exchanging vows at the historical Shunkoin Temple will be an extraordinary wedding ceremony that the couple will long remember.
"We are thrilled to offer LGBT couples from around the world this wonderful opportunity to experience the essence of a traditional Japanese wedding ceremony. As the very first Japanese hotel to become a member of the International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association (IGLTA) in 2006, we are proud to be a leading LGBT friendly hotel in Japan, and this package will attract not only international travelers but also domestic couples in Japan." says Shiho Ikeuchi, Director of the Executive Office. Hotel Granvia Kyoto is exhibiting at ITB Berlin. Please visit the "Pink Pavilion‟ booth (Hall3.1/ 108-G) to get more details about the package.
