house Gion Rokudo

Right next to Gion and the Kiyomizu-dera temple


The Gion Rokudo house offers a pleasant blend between japanese and western-style comfort.

You can cook in the western,  fully equipped kitchen of this vacation rental in Kyoto and then enjoy your meal amid the softness of the typical japanese dinning-room.

On the second floor, 2 or 3 futons can easily fit in a spacious japanese room, with the possibility of creating a more intimate space thanks to the removable walls.

Last but not least, a western-style bedroom with a single bed offers a view on the unsung Roudo temple.

1st floor (street level) : japanese living-room, kitchen, japanese bathroom (with a shower cabin and a japanese furo-bath), toilets.

2nd floor : Japanese bedroom (2 futons), small japanese bedroom (1 futon), western-style bedroom.

Our house is located in the southern part of Gion, a district famous for its maiko and geiko. The house is close to the Matsubara street which leads to the Kiyomizu-dera great temple, one of Kyoto's major symbols.

The Kennin-ji temple devoted to zen buddhism is a dozen of meters away. Walk through it and you'll discover the magnificient and bustling Hanamikoji street. It is bordered with traditional houses, luxurious restaurants and tea houses visited every night by rich clients looking for some fun.

Convenient stores, public transportations and grocery shopping places are located just next to the house.

Our opinion

The Gion house benefits from the quietness of this residential area while being at a stone's throw distance from the city's two major attractions : Gion district and Kiyomizu-dera temple. 

Decored tastefully, the Rokudo house invites you to experience the very atmosphere that reigned in japanese houses during the last century while enjoying modern comfort.

Vivre le Japon est une équipe très bien organisée et dynamique, prête à rendre des services et à répondre à de multiples questions, Bravo. Nous avons pris une réservation par AirBnB à Tokyo (car vous ne pouviez pas prendre d'engagement pour la période avant Aout et je voulais organiser avant), et nous avons compris la différence en votre faveur: + des produits de première nécessité en cuisine + des couverts et moyens de cuisson en quantité et qualité suffisante + des moyens de couchage propres + du chauffage!!! + Salle de bain avec eau chaude en quantité suffisante. + Un produit sans surprise et confortable dans un emplacement proche de Kiyomizu et à 10 minutes de la ligne Keian et 3 minutes des bus vers les grands points touristiques + un petit supermarché de quartier très typiques et bien achalandé, super (même pour le pletit plateau de sashimi ou les grignotages divers) Bravo!
