MIYAKO HOTELS & RESORTS
In Japanese, the term “miyako” refers to a flourishing center of business and entertainment. There are 20 Miyako hotels and resorts in Japan. Southern California is home to two more: the Miyako Hotel Los Angeles as well as the environmentally friendly Miyako Hybrid Hotel.
MIYAKO HOTEL, FIRST 50 YEARS IN CALIFORNIA
Kintetsu Enterprise Company of America (KEA, dba Miyako Hotel Los Angeles and Miyako Hybrid Hotel, a subsidiary of Kintetsu Group Holdings) set out to bridge East and West in America. In 1968 they created San Francisco’s “Japan Center” by opening the 14 story Miyako Hotel San Francisco and the 50,000 sq. ft. Kintetsu Shopping Center. In 1975 KEA’s presence in the neighborhood expanded with Kyoto Inn, the Buchanan Mall and Japan Town Bowl bowling center. KEA then ventured south to Los Angeles and opened Miyako Hotel Los Angeles in 1989. After 40 years of great business and cultural relationships with The City By the Bay, Kintetsu moved their entire company to The City of Angels, where it continues to call home today.
