house Kiyomizuan

An authentic traditional Kyoto house


Kiyomizu-an house offers a genuine timeless experience in a Kyoto typical house. It was our motto for the renovation made in collaboration with a renowned Kyoto architect.

The house can easily accommodate 7 people (up to 10 people), having 2 rooms on the upper floor and a big space on the ground floor that can be separated in 2, for quieter times.
A room for tea ceremony and a wine cellar add to the already great atmosphere! The house is also equipped with 4 electric bicycles which can be freely used, ideal to visit sites all over Kyoto!

Our opinion

While all modern equipments are available, the 80-year old textures and sights are preserved for your own appreciation. The house is comfortable to stay in while also keeping its atmosphere intact.
At Kiyomizuan you can enjoy quality time with family / friends after your day visits. Undoubtedly, this house will be part of your best memories in Kyoto.


Taxi: Approx. 1200 yen from the station (an access map will be provided with your reservation)
Bus: Bus number 206 to the bus stop Umamachi (price is 230 yen per person) and a 13 minutes walk uphill

Getting around:
Taxis regularly pass in front of the house and a bus stop to the city center is 50m away. The best options are 4 electric bicycles that can allow you to ride through the whole city.

The location is perfect for travelers as it is not far from Kyoto Station and next door to major sightseeing spot like Kiyomizu Temple, etc. The host is very responsive and supportive. The Kyoto style house and its silent, nature environment around gave us a feeling of "living in Kyoto" instead of traveling. We will like to come back and stay again in the near future. Thank you.

The house has all the necessary modern updates while maintaining the traditional Japanese structure. The bath and toilet facilities are excellent. The kitchen is small but adequate if you don't plan to do much cooking. The house is located on a steep hill but the electric bikes have no problem going up the hill. The house is fairly large and the lay out will easily accommodate multiple couples or a large family.

Great home. Plenty of space. Kitchen useful plus dining area. Bikes are great and really helpful getting up and down hill. Useful to have to go to all points Kyoto
