Kyoto Getaway 
A five-night, six-day stay for four at Isshudo, a traditional Japanese townhouse.

A vision of traditional grandeur, this historic building embodies the true essence of Japanese tradition down to its finest details. Inside, you will encounter a nakaniwa (a courtyard) and a kura (a warehouse) that characterize Kyoto machiya, as well as an authentic ochashitsu (tea house) and sliding doors covered with karakami (decorative paper) from the renowned Karacho atelier. This ensemble promises you a glimpse of traditional Japanese culture in its purest form. Not just an oasis rich in history, Isshudo also offers comfortable modern living all year round. All rooms are fully equipped with air conditioning and floor heating, plus state-of-the-art kitchens and bathrooms. Surrounded by famous sites, you can listen while you walk on the famous “chirping” nightingale floors of Nijo Castle or take a morning stroll through the beautiful Kyoto Imperial Palace grounds – both minutes from your doorstep. Enjoy traditional kaiseki meals and springtime visits to see the famous cherry blossoms along the Kamo River. Isshudo is a perfect blend of ancient tradition and contemporary function. 

Package includes:

  • One traditional Japanese dinner
  • One traditional Japanese tea ceremony

Responsible Mining 
We believe fine craftsmanship starts with responsibly sourcing the highest quality raw materials and continues through the creation of the final piece of jewelry. Unlike other jewelers, we source the majority of our rough diamonds and metals directly from mines we know and from recycled sources. We are devoted to better understanding the social, economic and environmental impacts of the mining and processing of precious materials so that we can create positive impacts along the supply chain, all the way from the mine to our customers.
