Property description

Sakara Gion is a Kyoto 'machiya' townhouse with the styling and amenities you expect, on the outskirts of the bustling Gion district. The location is exceptional; walking distance from the famous Gion district on a peaceful street, 1 minute from City bus and ~5 minutes from the subway. It's our best holiday rental yet, incorporating everything travelers tell us they want. There are two rooms and a bathroom on the second floor with designer western-style bedding as well as a tatami room on the first floor with futon sets. In addition there is a traditional courtyard garden, spacious granite bath, open kitchen, Wifi, digital TV, and easy access to local restaurants. There is even a public bathhouse and sake shop across the street. In keeping with our theme, we offer 'Japanese style with western comfort' -- the doors are tall, living areas spacious, art and furnishings top-class.

Why Higashiyama (Higashiyama Ward, Kyoto, Kyoto Prefecture, Japan):
The Higashiyama area is nationally famous for a good reason - the real Kyoto is jumping out from around every corner. Rickshaws go past the front door, Kimono clad entertainers come and go from the Gion district, and it's beautiful year round. There is a public bathhouse just across the street and within five minutes you can be on Shijo Street in the epicenter of the action! Festival season is especially vibrant in this neighborhood.
