Hideaway by the Shirakawa River
At the end of a narrow alley is a small house, standing like a hideaway slightly away from the bustling city. Just passing through the alley will make you feel excited as if you were a child.
Going through the long and narrow rooms is a luxurious space where Shirakawa River flows. In the spring season when the number of tourists increases outside, you can enjoy the cherry blossoms in this exclusive special seat.
The entrance to the alley to the property is located at Shinmonzen St., an art street with many antique shops dealing in various types of art pieces. Nearby is the Hanamikoji St. which runs from north to south in the Gion area, one of the most famous tourist destinations in Kyoto, where you can find fashionable Japanese cafes, cute variety stores, and teahouses with a slightly classy ambiance. Shirakawa is a popular strolling spot and is a well-known spot for tourists all year round.
An excellent location close to the downtown Shijo-Kawaramachi in Kyoto with good access to tourist attractions such as Yasaka Shrine, Kiyomizu Temple, and Heian Jingu Shrine.

Fully renovated by the former owner in 2018, the modest size of this building creates a more hideaway-like atmosphere as its location suggested. Here you can feel the luxury of the location from the spring-like view of cherry blossoms in full bloom over the murmuring of the river. The 2nd floor is two consecutive Japanese-style rooms with delicate designs features such as Shoji screens and Koshi lattices. A Irori (sunken hearth) is installed in the Japanese-style room on the south, so it can also be used as a tea room.
Currently, the property does not have a bathroom. Feel free to consult us if you would like to install a bathroom. Even if you don't have such a plan, there are several public baths near the property that you can enjoy on a daily basis and experience the rooted public bath culture of Kyoto.
Overall this is a quiet area in the northern part of Gion; a property recommended for second houses, private salons, and galleries.
