  • Description

    This more than 100 year old townhouse has been entirely redesigned from the ground up, with both traditional and modern material. Special attention was paid to the refined atmosphere of the place as well as the comfort, for the enjoyment of our guests. Our concept remains “Old Traditional Machiya with Modern Comfort”.

    From the street, you access the newly renovated townhouse through a gate and a leading garden passage. A beautiful wedding kimono welcomes you in the large entrance. A glass door opens into the dining kitchen space and the Japanese living room which itself opens to the Tsuboniwa, our beautiful little courtyard Japanese garden. An old wooden box stairs (Hako Kaidan) leads to the loft bedroom where you’ll find two single beds (mattress). On the right of the dining space, the main bedroom is a Western style one with a double bed, a closet and a working desk.

    The traditional cypress wood bathroom opens to the courtyard garden (Tsuboniwa) and is a great spot to relax in a hot bath after a busy day visiting the city. The whole place has been decorated with various old traditional Japanese art-crafts for a more refined atmosphere.

    In the dining area, we have a large wooden dining table with seating for six. During the cold winter, you will appreciate the floor heating both in the kitchen/dining area and the Japanese tatami living room. A large flat screen HD TV and a BD player are available for your enjoyment as well as Netflix for unlimited movie viewing.

    The place is very conveniently located near the South Exit of Kyoto JR station and 2 min away from a bus stop, for easy access to all sightseeing sites around Kyoto.
