Kyoto townhome description

Kyoto is famous for having been the ancient capital of Japan, dating back over 1200 years. The sheer beauty of the temples, shrines, gardens and culture imbued within, makes Kyoto one of the most revered places in the world.
Bairin-an (Plum Grove) is one unit of Kyo Machiya Miyabi in Kiyomizu area, a big Kyoto traditional house, and was designed and divided in three machiya (Bairin-an, Shofu-an, Momiji-an) by renowned Kyoto based architect, Geoffrey P. Moussas.
Bairin-an is being meticulously preserved with the traditional techniques that have been handed down over the centuries. While sticking to tradition is important for the architect, updating the facilities, such as a nice shower, high-tech toilet, kitchen, heating floor, are just as important to meet the present day needs of our selective clientele. The delicate balance between 'old and new' is what sets this apart.

Bairin-an is at the foot of Kiyomizu Temple, which has been designated a World Cultural Heritage, and is very convenient for visiting by walking distance many others famous temples, shrines, downtown, and Gion, the most famous Geisha district!

Enjoy Kyoto and the distinctive features of the local townhomes by staying in a real Machiya, feeling the natural way of living and the change of seasons which distinguishes Kyoto 's culture and its people.

City buses or rental bikes can take you to most famous sites in Kyoto within 30 minutes.

                  About: Message from the owner: Welcome to Kyoto! Our wooden houses were built in 1920'. Recently we renovated these houses by utilizing the original material as much as possible. Please enjoy the feeling of traditional Kyoto house!

                  Why Kyoto:
                  We could see a glitter of traditional atmosphere on the roof, wooden pillars, sliding doors or small garden inside the house. The townhouse is called Machiya and this house strongly stimulated us to restore for living. Machiya used to be townhouses or shops for the merchants in the 17th century. Not only temples and shrines, but machiya stay is an attractive experience for all who want to know more about Kyoto life style and its culture.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
                  In less than 5 minutes from Bairin-an there are two 24hours convenient stores, a 24h supermarket, post office, bank, cafes, restaurants. A 15 minutes walk will take you to the riverside of the Kamogawa. You can take a pleasant stroll along the river, or do shopping in the nearby Kawaramachi area convenient for rainy days as the shopping streets are covered, like Nishiki food market street. A night life spot is Pontocho, a narrow lane with no cars, full of elegant restaurants, bars, and where you can see a Geisha or Maiko on the way or from an appointment. Next street Ovest of Pontocho is Kiyamachi, a very lively night zone where you can find many kinds of restaurants, bars, pubs and more... Enjoy just walking from Bairin-an!
