About the Property

Private rental unit with bath, kitchenette, WiFi, queen beds

Sakara - the characters mean 'cherry blossom', 'aroma', and 'ease/comfort' --
Sakara is unique and original with Japanese decor, private restroom, bath, laundry machine, kitchenette, and high quality western queen sized beds.
Free wireless internet signal, TV, and local phone line standard.
Sakara has a common tatami room next to the lobby overlooking a Zen garden. The first floor tatami lounge has complimentary coffee and green tea for guests.
We want you to get the most out of your trip to Kyoto. With that in mind we have designed this accommodation especially for the foreign traveler in Kyoto.
Traditional styling is important to us, so we have incorporated the Japanese elements we love with an eye to Western comfort.
You will enjoy the feel of a classic historical machiya building; natural wood, plaster, paper, and tatami highlighted with Japanese art and furniture.

The Best of Both Worlds: : *** Sakara offers you the convenience of a hotel or Ryokan with the privacy of a house rental. The kitchen allows you to cook as you like. You can do laundry and take a hot bath.

*** Japanese feel and decor are complimented with highest quality bedding, High ceilings and doorways, and personal touches. Art and antiques blend the modern with the traditional.

*** Sakara is walking distance from the Gion district, shops, and subway. There are many nearby cafes and restaurants.

Sakara is great for families. If you have a larger group please contact us for information about other options as well.

*** The Bamboo Suite is ideal for a family or group of four guests.

*** Please contact us directly about discounts for longer stays or more than one room.
