~FIFA WORLD CUP: CHEERS FROM KYOTO~
Hello there, and welcome to THE HOTEL KIYOMIZU GION’s first English blog post! My name is A. Takigawa, and I will be your English guide to our hotel, which is located in the heart of Kyoto. It would be our greatest pleasure if this blog would inspire you to visit us in the future! 🙂
Initially, my plan for this post was to introduce the traditional cultural features our Japanese-modern style hotel boasts… (Which I promise to deliver soon in the near future!) But then I got distracted. And let’s face it; who wouldn’t? The big event is here.
THE FIFA WORLD CUP.
The amazing event that heats up the entire world like a wildfire, hotter than the Kyoto heat in the summer. So just like the rest of the world, we the Gion branch staff got very excited…
And here is our result.
We must send our most sincere apologies to the interior designer who designed the lobby… But I think we really made good use of the space without killing the original ambiance. Our ceiling is now adorned with flags and a soccer ball to boot! And if you’re following the World Cup at all, you might notice that the flags are categorized by groups… 😉
Additionally, we are offering a limited time sale on alcoholic beverages at our lobby for the occasion. We are now selling Premium Malt’s beer for 300yen (including tax!!) instead of the usual 648yen and Kyoto Beer for 500yen (also including tax!!) instead of 810yen. (It’s a secret between just us and the guests that we are actually selling them for way cheaper than restaurants around our neighborhood!)
We’ve also changed our lobby’s background music to the upbeat World Cup team songs (“WE WILL ROCK YOU” is playing in the background for the umpteenth time as I write this!), so all we need now is YOU, dear guests! Which team are you rooting for? Who is your favourite player? How is your country’s team doing? We want to hear directly from you! Whether you’re a soccer/football fan or not, you will surely enjoy the lively atmosphere! 🙂
That’s all for today; I hope to see you soon at our hotel, or again in this blog! 🙂
