Kyoto townhome description

Situated in the heart of Kyoto, this is a stylish and innovative machiya accommodation located on a serene backstreet near the Takasegawa river, one of the most popular cherry blossom spots in Kyoto. The machiya is near Gion, where Geisha are frequently spotted on Hanamikoji Street, and the traditional cobbled streets of Pontocho, which are lined with bustling restaurants and bars are also within walking distance, as are the popular shopping centers on the corner of Kawaramachi and Shijo streets and the exciting Nishiki food market. Bus stops and train station are also within a 6 minute walking distance. This is the perfect place to feel the energy of both modern and traditional Kyoto.As the river flows through the center of the street, during the spring the cherry blossoms that line the river are lit up at night while in the winter white veils of snow create an enchanting sight.


Fully licensed property : This house obtains official hotel/inn business license and complies with the Building Standard Law and the Fire Services Act in Japan. You may securely stay in this house while enjoying your trip in Kyoto.

House description 1 : At the entrance the white wall is coated with 'shikkui' or stucco, which is used by craftsmen to coat walls for temples, shrines and traditional houses. In the living room the tatami room is reminiscent of the Japan of years ago when people used to sit around the 'iori' or hearth to spend time with their loved ones or close friends. Under the stairs there is a washing machine and clothes dryer. In the kitchen all tableware, cookware and kitchen necessities are on hand for your convenience. Complimentary English tea, Kyoto's instant coffee and Japanese green tea are also provided. The bathroom contains a sink, toilet and adjacent room with a shower and bathtub. Enjoy bathing in a 'Hinoki buro' or Japanese cypress bathtub. Next to the living room is a Japanese bedroom. This tatami room has a clear view of the 'tsuboniwa' or Japanese garden. One extra futon mattress can be prepared here. There is also a wire-less Internet access here as well as a toilet adjacent to this room here.




House description 2 : On the second floor the western style bedroom has a twin bed and a dressing table. The wooden floor is made of pine tree and was painted using the renowned 'fuki-urushi' technique. It involves painting on multiple layers of 'urushi' or Japanese lacquer to make the wood grain glossy. The purple lamp cover was made by a local craftsmen who specializes in crafting traditional umbrellas for Geisha. High quality mattresses from Kyoto's long established bedding company as well as camel pillows and soft blankets are provided to ensure a good night's sleep. Next to the western style bedroom is a Japanese lounge room. This room can also be converted into an extra bedroom by laying down one extra futon mattress. All of the tatami rooms use 'juraku kabe' or traditional mud walls showcasing another aspect of the 'washitsu' or Japanese-style room.
