Machiya Inn by the Kamo River


Guesthouse in the Kyoto old-town

The area between Shichijo Street and Gojo Street along north-south and between the Kamo River and Takase River along east-west used to be a Geisha district called Gojo Rakuen (Gojo Paradise), where about 150 teahouses and Okiya located. The area still has a nostalgic old-town atmosphere with its Yukaku architecture.

In recent years, fashionable cafes, restaurants, and hotels have opened one after another in the area, making it a bustling place. Keihan line and JR Kyoto Station are also within walking distance, making it very convenient for sightseeing.


The chic yet quaint exterior and lean design inside make it cozy and enjoyable to spend time in. The kitchen also has a sense of openness thanks to the double-height ceiling stairwell. A garden is located between the bathroom and living room, providing a place to relax at your bathtime and enjoy gathering with family and friends.
