approx. 3 min. walk from
Keihan "Kiyomizu-Gojo Sta." exit 2
A former guesthouse Machiya in Higashiyama Ward, one of Kyoto's most popular sightseeing destinations
Within walking distance to the Kiyomizu Temple area, which is like a theme park embodying Japanese "Wa" harmony. (about 10 minutes walk/780m to the entrance of Kiyomizu-zaka from the property).
The neighborhood is a quiet residential area in Higashiyama, not only dotted with unique stores but still alive with the traditional Kyoto lifestyle.
The property, which was formerly a guesthouse, has been stylishly renovated while retaining its authentic Kyomachiya atmosphere. The impressive facade with its deep and graceful exterior walls is reminiscent of Japanese "Sumi" ink, with typical "Koshi" lattice windows that border the Misenoma. The interior plaster walls beautifully express light and shadows, which go very well with Japanese ornaments and antiques. This property is finished in a way that allows you to enjoy both Japanese "Wa" harmony and the seasons of Kyoto.
This property can be used not only as a villa for sightseeing in Kyoto but also in the adjoining Shiga and Osaka prefecture. You may also consider started your guesthouse business in anticipation of the future revival of tourism. (*application of guesthouse license is needed before operation)
View of Kyoto city from Kiyomizu Temple, a classic sightseeing spot in Kyoto
Higashiyama is dotted with both traditional, long-established stores and innovative, unique shops. As you walk around, you may discover something new while still feeling the good old days of the Meiji and Showa eras with the unique Kyoto townscape. For the taste of good old Kyoto, traditional stores such as "Harise (traditional Kaiseki Japanese restaurant)", "Seifukudo (Uji tea shop)", "Shichijo-Kanshundo (traditional Japanese confectionery)", and "Goken Uiro Honten (traditional Japanese confectionery)" are highly recommended in the area.

The gentle indirect light and the plaster walls illuminated by the lamps softly light up the rooms, creating a calm interior that relaxes your body and mind. Because Kyomachiya was originally designed for summer when many traditional events are held, it is said to be cold in winter, but here you can live comfortably with the underfloor heating system installed in the Tatami room and the living-dining-kitchen.
In the "Misenoma" Tatami room, through the latticework, you can experience the chance of the seasons and the traffic on Sasamachi St. with all five senses, and enjoy a lifestyle that brings Kyoto culture close to you.
The bedrooms on the 2F have a sloped ceiling which creates a sense of openness. Each room is equipped with a shower booth and lavatory. The natural wooden beams that have supported the building have taken on a beauty of their own over time, and will surely provide a sense of healing to those who stay here.
The kitchen, despite being a former guesthouse, is equipped with two IH cooktops and has a spacious cooking area. You can also easily enjoy Kyoto's cuisine during your stay by using the catering or delivery services.
