house Gion Rokudo

Right next to Gion and the Kiyomizu-dera temple

Description


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.

This house was close to Train and bus system but far enough away form the main road not to here the traffic. It was a great way to see japan life. Hope to try another house next time. Eddie

Excellent accueil par William et ses conseils ont été précieux. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié de vivre dans une maison traditionnelle. Le quartier est agréable et la maison très calme à proximité de toutes les commodités et commerces.

My husband and I have enjoyed a totally relaxing "switch-off" from the workaday world of our busy lives. Thank you to Clément and to William for a fabulous introduction to this beautiful, clean and tranquil house. We've loved being here and will heartily recommend this idea to others in Japan. Salut!

Nous avons commencé la découverte du Japon par Kyoto et la maison Gion Rokudo! Magnifique, surprenante ville, bouillonnante et apaisante à la fois. Tellement zen qu'on a envie d'y rester. Nous reviendrons c'est certain!
Merci à Clément pour ses conseils.

Saki, Clément, Laetitia et Clémence sont des hôtes charmants et investis. Saki et Clémence nous ont parfaitement reçus et aidé à préparer nos itinéraires pour les jours à venir. Disponibles et humains, nous sommes prêtes à revivre l'expérience Japon si c'est avec eux. Les maisons sont propres, accueillantes comme à la maison en fait. Merci "Vivre le Japon" et à l'année prochaine.
