Kyoto townhome description

This is a small machiya located in one of the most picturesque parts of Kyoto, Gion district which is Kyoto's most famous traditional area is in walking distance. If you are looking for the very KYOTO experience, this is a perfect location.

This house is completely renovated in 2010, Very comfortable and cozy space for a small group after a long day of sightseeing!

Location: Very close to Kiyomizu Temple, Yasaka Shrine, Kyoto’s most famous cherry blossom viewing site Maruyama Park, and etc. The location, Sanjyo area is perfect spot for everyone. It is very convenient location, the kyoto's biggest street SHIJYO street is just around the corner, and yet still very quiet at night. You can find everything in a walking distance. Ancient temples, museums, restaurants, bars, cute cafes, shops, department stores - it's all here! Also the bus stop and train station are very close to the house, (literally 30 sec by walking to the bus stop and 2 minutes to the train station.) so it's very easy access to all other areas in Kyoto!
There is a famous Kamo river close to the house, you can have a day or night picnic by the river if the weather in nice out.

House: The house is very modern sophisticated Machiya , yet has a very old Japanese feel to it. Inside of the house was renewed in the late 2010, but we reused some of the materials that was used in the old house from more than 100 years ago, it gives very unique antique taste! The house has a small basic kitchen with a little fridge and microwave, Full bathroom with bath tub, and even a small garden! One bedroom is in upstairs and has 1 single bed and 1 double bed, the other one is Japanese Tatami room in downstairs that also can be used as a living room.

                  Year Purchased: 2010

                  About the owner: I grew up in Japan (Hyogo) and spend almost half of my life outside the country, and every time I came home, I would go visit Kyoto dreaming about living there. I love everything related to art, design, and traveling.

                  Why the Owner Chose Kyoto:
                  This property was a very old traditional Machiya located in a very convenient location where you can feel and experience a real Kyoto life. I thought it would be a perfect location for people who travels to kyoto and want to experience Kyoto.
