The area
Address
Neighborhood: City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.

    Rejuvenation Therapy
    My husband and I visited this lovely establishment first thing after arriving in Kyoto after more than 30 hours of travel. Our hotel was able to call ahead for us (recommended) and make a reservation for two massages with only an hour’s notice. Needless to say that the massage we received revitalized our weary bodies and minds after our journey. The staff was extremely friendly and had great energy.
    Thank you very much for coming to KaycoVIVID through the introduction from the hotel immediately after arriving in Kyoto. I am very happy to be able to heal the fatigue of the long trip. After that, how was your trip to Kyoto? Please drop in when you come to Kyoto again. We are looking forward to seeing you.

    Perfect place for a massage in Kyoto
    It was a great massage and everyone was eager to make us comfortable. It was really refreshing after a few days of travel. It is worth the visit for a massage. To find it, you need to know is in an office building on the 9th floor.
    Thank you very much for coming to our store the other day. I am very happy to receive your compliments. I am honored to have an aroma body. Please stop by kaycovivid when you come to Kyoto. Enjoy the rest of your trip.

    Best Experience EVER
    The experience I just had at Kayco was so beyond magical it’s hard to put into words. I received a massage and facial and was put into such a zen and relaxing place. The ladies took such great care of me and really made an effort to get to know me as I am a foreigner. They made me feel extremely welcomed and at ease. I would make a trip back to Kyoto just see them again and experience the amazing customer service again! I recommend to everyone !
    Thank you very much for coming to our store the other day. Thank you for your compliment. We will do our best to accommodate your request. Please stop by when you come to Kyoto again! We will continue to provide services with high customer satisfaction. I'm looking forward to seeing you. KaycoVIVID

    Best message and facial
    I found them from looking at the internet. I was so tired from walking all around Kyoto. I did a full body massage and facial. It was so worth it. I came out so refreshed and all my tiredness went away. The facial was also really good. My face looks younger and better. The staff was also really friendly. I will definitely be back next time I'm in Kyoto.
    Thank you very much for coming to our store the other day. Thank you for your compliment. It was nice to be able to wipe away the fatigue after walking around. Thank you for visiting our salon after searching online. Please stop by when you come to Kyoto next time! We look forward to welcoming everyone!

    Best Massage in Kyoto
    The service was fantastic and the ladies were very kind. After conservative long walks during my friend and I’s Japan trip, a good massage is exactly what we needed to relax. We did the 90 min combo aroma body massage, and it was one of the best I have had. Highly recommended if you are looking for a good massage in Kyoto.
    Dear ryans9224 Thank you very much for coming to our store the other day. I am happy that I was able to provide healing and refreshment to my tired body from this trip to Japan. Thank you very much for your kind words! I am very grateful! When you come to Kyoto again, please stop by and relax. I look forward to meeting again.

    Great treatment by wonderful staff
    Great massage and facial by the loveliest staff! We felt very spoiled and it was such a comfortable experience! Would definitely recommend to anyone who needs some pampering and relaxation in a great area of Kyoto. We had the 100 minutes massage and facial which I can highly recommend!
    Dear AmandaLundc99 Thank you for coming to our store the other day. I am glad that you felt that you were in a luxurious mood. Thank you for your compliments and for recommending Kayco vivid. Please come and relax again! All the staff are looking forward to seeing you 😊

    Clean and comfortable place!
    Very lovely place ! The women who work there are so kind. I did the 100 minute massage and facial. I especially loved the facial. The place is very clean and comfortable. I was able to go without an appointment. I went by myself but it would be great as a couple too. Definitely recommend !
    Dear Nibs3338 Thank you for taking the aroma treatment + facial beauty 100 minute course the other day. After completing the course, my skin felt very moisturized and my face looked brighter. We are very happy to be able to offer beauty treatments that repair damaged skin during Japan's hot and humid summer. We are also grateful to have met you. Please come visit us again when you come to Kyoto. We'll be expecting you! Kaycovivid

    Perfect retreat
    I really need a facial treatment during the time of my two weeks vacation in Japan. So I just walk-in to this shop in a weekday afternoon and it surprised me a lot! The staff was so professional and nice. I really enjoy the moment here.
    Dear KK Thank you for coming to our store the other day. Thank you for choosing our salon for your facial care during your two week vacation. I was able to get rid of the dirt in my pores and tiredness, and it was very nice to have a glossy skin. We are glad that you enjoyed your time at our salon! Please drop in when you come to Kyoto again. We'll be expecting you.

    Great value, relaxing and enjoyable massage and facial
    Had a wonderful experience at this spa. We did the massage and facial package and it was very relaxing. The masseuses here are very thoughtful and accommodating. They did an excellent job with making my skin feel clean and glowing. The massage was peaceful and very enjoyable. Would definitely recommend this place if you’re in the Kyoto area looking for an easy, relaxing spa experience. They give you tea before and after the service and are very kind and accommodating every step of the way. Thank you to these lovely ladies for taking good care of us!
    Dear Brenda K. Thank you for coming to our store the other day.

    Great massage and facial experience
    Booking an appointment online was extremely easy. The team was very responsive via email. Upon arrival, you take the elevator to the 9th floor to 901. The ladies greet you at the door and welcome you into the space with tea. I used the Amore body and facial and it was absolutely amazing. The massage and facial was very well thought out. I have eyelash extensions on and the team was very gentle with them. My Japanese is very very basic/limited, and I was able to communicate with them. Thank you to the team at KaycoVIVID. I would love to come back the next time I’m in town.
    Dear kathy Thank you for visiting us the other day. I appreciate your compliments! I think if I could speak more English, I would have had a more enjoyable and relaxing time at the salon. Thank you for choosing to come back again. I think I'll have mastered English a little more by then! We look forward to welcoming everyone.

The staff was extremely friendly and it was a very nice and clean place. The massage was catered to the areas I wanted to focus on and exactly what I needed. When you arrive they give you hot water and after your massage you get hot tea which was a nice touch!

Thank you for visiting us the other day. Thank you very much for your kind words of praise! Due to temperature differences and dry air, your skin tends to lack moisture. I'm glad that the beauty treatment made your skin soft and smooth. If you come to Kyoto again, please drop by! We look forward to seeing you!

This was my first massage and it was very professional and relaxing. They spoke English which was great for us as tourists visiting Kyoto. It lasted longer than we expected and I left feeling brand new.

Etsuko was so amazing, and so was the rest of the staff. They were understanding when I was a little late because I dropped my pasmo on the subway tracks. They greeted us even though we spoke limited Japanese and spoke just enough English for me to understand the facial treatment I was receiving and to feel completely welcomed. (I've never learned Japanese, just learned through anime/Manga ㅋㅋ) Etsuko was so sweet and the whole thing was so relaxing, I thought I was going to sleep partway through. My redness was gone and my skin felt so moisturized despite the Japanese dry winter. There was also a massage portion of my facial and my neck and everything above feel so relaxed. The location was also great, right next to a station exit/entrance. Also complimentary tea and candy at the end ^^

Staff was kind and very sweet. I came as an English speaker with little Japanese understanding and the staff was very patient and helpful to help me understand the procedure. I got a 60 minute facial done and enjoyed it thoroughly! When we were done the staff walked me out to a mirror and my skin has never looked better. The massage was relaxing and peaceful, would recommend!

Thank you for visiting us. Since the amount of water in your skin decreases due to cold or warm air, I made sure to moisturize my skin thoroughly. If you have any skin concerns again, please come visit us from New York 😉✨ We want you to feel thoroughly hydrated and relaxed! We are looking forward to your visit!

Thank you for visiting us. I'm glad you were able to relax with the aroma massage and facial course. Since the air is dry, the amount of moisture in your skin decreases, so I made sure to moisturize my skin. We are also sorry that our English is not fluent (。-人-。) Sorry. I think I'll be better by the time you visit next time! We look forward to having you there.
