A machiya in the heart of Kyoto

The machiya was a lovely stay for our family of 2 adults and 2 young kids. It's been refurbished with modern amenities and was clean and spacious. Quiet neighbourhood so you get a good night's rest after a long day, although the neighbours may beg to differ (with our kids making quite the ruckus). Sorry neighbours! The area in which the machiya was located was really quaint - plenty of small restaurants and bars you can nip into on a cold winter's night. Nearest subway was a 5 - 8min walk and one stop to Kawaramachi - the main shopping drag (Takashimaya), from there you can walk about 10mins across the river to Gion which is another delight to explore. Definitely a cosy abode worth returning to!

The apartment was exactly as described and immaculate. Its located in a prime location in downtown Kyoto. Daisuke greeted us at the apartment and was so helpful in giving us an overview of Kyoto and the prime spots to visit and how to get there. I would love to stay here again someday.

Hello Daisuke, Thank you for waiting for us to arrive late into Kyoto, and taking the time to run through the house and the amenities, local interests, the areas to visit, and also subway lines. Appreciate it much. We loved the cosy stay at the machiya, and also the area in which the house is located. Wished we had more time to explore the lovely neighbourhood. Please do apologise to the neighbours for the trash left outside the house and also the ruckus the kids caused. Thank you! Carrie, Pete, Beth & Edith

Beautiful experience at the Kyokan-An house. Traditional Japanese house with a super comfortable tatami. We slept like babies with the utter silence and loved the location.
