Escalier de la Maison Demachi - Vivre le Japon

house Demachi

With Ozu decor


Demachi house offers a practical mixture of comfort for a pleasant stay.
This beautiful vacation rental in Kyoto offers western comfort on the ground-floor where you can enjoy eating your meals in the dining room.

On the first floor the Japanese rooms give a feeling of peace and offer a well deserved rest space after your days spent exploring the city and its surroundings. From the north window there is a breathtaking view of Hoseji temple where you can lose yourself in the sounds and smells of Buddhists ceremonies every day.

Ground floor: Hall, kitchen/dining room, Japanese bathroom (shower and Japanese ofuro bath).

1st floor: 2 Japanese adjoining bedrooms (sleeps 2 or 3, in Japanese futons).

Two stations away from downtown Kyoto, this house is located in a popular neighbourhood, ideally situated near the Kamogawa River. It is 200 yards away from the Demachi-Yanagi train station, which allows all the North-South connections in Kyoto and a direct trip to Osaka. From the first floor, you have a magnificent view of Hoseji Temple.

Our opinion

Demachi house combines Eastern and Japanese comforts in order to enjoy a pleasant stay near the Kamogawa river in a popular colourful district.

Its ideal location allows you to get around the city and its surroundings easily

Gentillesse et efficacité , je pourrai en dire davantage apres le voyage.

Maison traditionnelle japonaise. Pour 2 ou 3 personnes. 2 étant préférables si vous voulez conserver le coin salon. Sinon il faudra ranger les futons. Mais après tout, c'est cela aussi l'immersion japonaise. Sinon séjour très agréable. Maison bien située, près d'un magasin permettant de gérer les besoins de dernière minute ainsi que d'une station de train. Accueil irréprochable de Julien. Excellents conseils pratiques et culturels. Nous reviendrons surement...

I had a really lovely time in the Demachi House. I was visiting my sister, who is studying at Doshisha, and she came to stay with me; the house made a great break from her dorm and we both found it such a calming and welcoming environment. It was also well-located for travel and I loved how close it was to the river. Clement was exceptionally helpful - I wish more places offered a 'travel angel'! I will definitely use Japan Experience if (hopefully, when) I visit Japan again!

Maison très agréable à vivre dans quartier très calme à proximité des transports en commun. Je regrette de n'avoir pas tenté un atelier cuisine

« This is a small house but it worked great for us. We were out and about during the day and we really did no cooking, preferring to eat out. Fridge was good size for the necessities we purchased at nearby nice market. Handy microwave and toaster oven and coffee maker. The location is perfect! 1 block in from the river. Public transportation is readily available. We did a lot of walking. Taxis are reasonable. Very quiet at night and the futons were comfortable. Plenty of towels. Good value. Would definitely stay here again. Didn't think I would use the washing machine but as it turns out, I did our laundry before leaving. Nice to get home and unpack clean clothes. »
