This is the first Western-style hotel to open in Kyoto, located in the west of the Higashiyama district. It had the tower of Anyoji which was located at the foot of Higashiyama, and the artificial spa Yoshimizuen which opened in 1873. The old building with the panel board "YAAMI" is in the center and the left is a four-story building with a verandah added in 1894. The building is surrounded by stone walls, and flags fly on both sides of the gate.
