5 mins walk from JR Umekoji Kyotonishi station.
A home where you can feel the warmth of timber.

The Kyoto Aquarium, Kyoto Railway Museum, and Umekoji Park area, which are often visited by not only tourists but also by Kyoto citizens (particularly for families with kids), are just a 5-minute walk from the property.

Solid cedar boards are used for flooring and walls, allowing you to live while feeling the warmth of the trees. It is recommended not only as guest houses, but also for living with your family or as a second house in Kyoto.

Umekoji area, an area where you can enjoy with your family

With the opening of JR Umekoji Kyoto West Station in 2019, this area is becoming even more lively with the newly opened hotels and shops one after another. Umekoji Park, where you can get close to the abundant flowers and greenery, is a valuable place for refreshment and child-raising as events for children are held all year round. For holiday shopping, the nearby area around Kyoto Station and Nishioji-dori Street in the west are recommended.

A little adventure at the Shimabara area

"Shimabara" is said to be the oldest hanamachi in Japan, which has existed for about 600 years. You can slowly enjoy the history of Hanamachi architectures such as Shimabara-Oomon, Wachigaiya, Sumiya, and Kinse Ryokan. Kinse Ryokan , which currently operates as a cafe and inn, used to be an "Ageya" (a kind of high-class pleasure house)built in the Edo period. Since it was renovated to a Western-style modern taste house during the Taisho period, you can feel "Taisho-romance" here and there.
