house Gion Jizo

Between Kiyomizu and Gion


Gion Jizo House, resolutely modern and practical on the ground floor, offers the sweetness of Japanese aesthetics upstairs. 
On the ground floor, the kitchen and the comfortable living room are the perfect space for daily life in Kyoto.
Upstairs, the two Japanese rooms invite you to relax: the smell of tatami, subdued light through panels of translucent white paper, the coziness of futons.

Ground floor: kitchen / dining room, living room, Japanese bath (shower and Japanese furo bath) and toilet.
Upper floor: Japanese bedroom with Japanese bedding (futon), Japanese bedroom (2 single beds), small balcony.

Our house is located in the southeastern district of Gion (pronounced ghee-on): the famous maïko and geiko district. It is at the end of a small pedestrian alley along Higashioji avenue, between the great Kiyomizu Temple, symbol of the city of Kyoto, and Kenninji Temple, the mother of Zen Buddhism temples.

Amenities, public transport and supermarket are just a few steps from the house. 

Our opinion

Gion Jizo house offers both modern comfort and Japanse aesthetics, with its two beautiful tatami-floor bedrooms. Its location, close to Higashioji avenue, is great for travellers to easily access the city and its surroundings.

Superbe expérience sur Kyoto ! et un super-accueil par notre Travel Angel, Julien, ainsi que notre guide, Hervé, tous deux agréables, disponibles, compétents et riche d'informations. La maison Gion Jizo est d'un excellent rapport qualité-prix, bien située au coeur de Kyoto. Nous sommes vraiment très contents de cette étape, comme des autres d'ailleurs :-). Merci aussi à Romain qui, de Paris, nous a monté ce voyage.

Maison petite mais parfaite pour les 4 adultes que nous étions, ruelle tranquille mais n'hésitez pas à fermer les volets de la chambre de devant pour atténuer le bruit de là ville, cuisine bien équipée, canapé un peu fatigué mais on passe plus de temps dehors, commerces à proximité et salle de bain formidable qui permet de récupérer des longues journées de découverte de Kyoto et ses environs
