-4-minute walk from Kyoto station-
Hi, everyone. I am the owner of this hotel, Sorato.
※Here is my instagram account→ @sorato_murakami
I was born and raised in this city, Kyoto.
Though I used to work as a nursery teacher, the thought that I want to express my philosophy and create my own world got bigger and bigger.
So I opened HOTEL IMAGINE KYOTO. With this hotel, I'd like to boost this city and have fulfilling and fun life with a lot of people.
As I said, I used to work as a nursery teacher.
Of course I don't have a license of architect, but I designed everything to tiny little part of this hotel .
I want you to know that people can make anything happen with strong passion.
Especially the young, you can do whatever you want!

About the song "IMAGINE" by John Lennon
I would like this hotel to be a place where people can connect with each other.
Regardless of skin color, nationality or gender, I believe that we should be tied with hearts.
So, the song "IMAGINE" is my all-time best.
Although I'm sure that you have heard this song many times, please listen to it again.
＃this is our "living room" on 1st floor: 24 hours open!↓↓
hotel×guesthouse×Ryokan＝HOTEL IMAGINE KYOTO
I am a greedy person. I want this place to be a mix of;
・where people can get away from everyday life and feel luxurious (hotel)
・where people can chill with open and casual vibe (guesthouse)
・where people can enjoy the traditional Japanese style and feel relaxed in the room with tatami mats on floor (Ryokan)
I want this place to be somewhere you want to spend time.
＃our kitchen on 1st floor↓↓
Dream living room: available for 24 hours
I worked hard on designing the kitchen area as well.
・a marble kitchen counter
・3 induction cookers
・popular BALMUDA toaster & microwave & electric kettles
(When you reheat croissants in the toaster, magic happens.)
・plates, glasses, a big fridge, pans
We have everything. Guests can have party both in their rooms and in the living room. (You can also use Uber eats if you want!)
Great breakfast makes that day great.
We don't have any food service here.
It is because that I believe that we can have another good day with a yummy toast and good coffee as a starter of that day.
Please make breakfast yourself as you like in our cool kitchen!
＃smooth hair with Bioprogramming Club↓↓
What do you think about a hotel where your hair gets better?
Some people say that their hair get horrible during a trip. I never want it happen to our guests.
We have hair&skincare tools like;
・HAIRBEAURON (hair iron)
・REPRONIZER (hair dryer)
・Refa facial massager
Be beautiful, be happy!
＃how to enjoy in rooms↓↓
School trips must be more fun for adults, because original ones have a lot of restrictions (like teachers' eyes).
I want our guests have their own "school trips" presented by themselves!
・3 designs of Yukata (Japanese pajamas)
Every room has Amazon Fire TV, so you can enjoy movies and YouTube videos as much as you like!
・Jengas, UNO, cards
・girl's night at a hotel
Please have fun!
We also help you with surprise events!
If we have a guest whose birthday is coming up, our staffs say "happy birthday!🙋♀️" even when they're in work mode ;)
The staffs support your plan with all hearts!
The photo above is our "Anniversary Plan".
This is optional, we assure that you can take pretty photos♡
