Kyo-machiya Inn in Shimabara

Approx. 7 minutes walk from JR Tambaguchi Station

Convenient and easy living
Popular area for families

The neighborhood is dotted with facilities essential for daily life, such as supermarkets (Matsumoto Gojo Store) which are well-loved by locals, drugstores (Dacs Gojo Store), as well as restaurants and hospitals.
Umekoji Park and the Kyoto Central Wholesale Market, located just a short distance away from the property, are lively places for people of all ages to enjoy various events and festivities on weekends and holidays.
In addition, you can also find Kyoto Aquarium which is adjacent to Umekoji Park, and Shimabara, once a flourishing Hanamachi (Geisha district), in the area, making the neighborhood filled with both old and new charms.

Shimabara was the first officially licensed Hanamachi in Japan. The Shimabara Daimon Gate and old teahouses such as Wachigaiya and Sumiya still exist today, telling the story of its former days as a Hanamachi.

The Japanese-style room extends behind the compact entrance, while light pours in from the atrium creating a bright and gentle space.
When you open the Yukimi-Shoji screendoor, you can see maple trees casting beautiful leaf-shaped shadows in the Tsuboniwa garden, which is unique to Kyo-Machiya houses.
The garden plants change their expression with the seasons, so you can enjoy different seasonal views throughout the year.
Since the property is located a short distance from the main street, you can enjoy a tranquil time away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
We recommend this house for those who are looking for a vacation house or a Kyoto-like office.
