      A soothing shared workspace.

      Create a spacious workroom with large windows that bring in abundant natural light. By decorating the window area with potted plants, you can create an atmosphere reminiscent of a stylish café. The sight of greenery, catching your eye while you focus on your tasks, will bring a sense of tranquility. Green plants are not only known for their healing effects but also for adding a natural accent to the space, which is said that enhance concentration and creativity.

    • A serene Japanese-style room,
      natural and reminiscent of the past.

      While those who prefer to sleep in beds may think, "A Japanese-style room is not suitable for a bedroom", it is actually said that low beds, floor beds, and Tatami beds go well with such spaces. By incorporating a daybed into the Japanese-style room, you can utilize it both as a relaxation area and a sleeping space. Enveloped in the scent of Tatami mats, you can soothe away the day's fatigue in this calm environment.

Located just a step away from the bustling city center, the nearest station, JR Tambabashi Station, is only two stops away from Kyoto Station (approx. 5 min. travel time) which is known as the "gateway to Kyoto", making it a convenient location for entering or exiting Kyoto.

About a 5-minute walk west of the property is the Shimabara area, Japan's oldest Hanamachi (geisha district). In recent years, it has become a lively area with trendy cafes and a mix of old and new. Here you can still find traditional Machiya and former Yukaku architectures, which allows you to enjoy the nostalgic atmosphere of the past. It is an area where history and cafe hopping enthusiasts can fully immerse themselves and enjoy the surroundings.

A little further south, you will find the Umekoji area. Umekoji plays a new role as a sub-gate for Kyoto tourism, offering opportunities to relax in parks surrounded by nature or enjoy adorable creatures like penguins at the aquarium. It has become a popular spot for people of all ages to enjoy various activities and gourmet experiences, from children to adults.
