house Reikanji

Japanese comfort and greenery


Just behind the Philosopher's Path, Reikanji House is a rare location with a profound sense of calm. Every window in the house has a beautiful view of the garden from the ground floor, or of Higashiyama mountain or Yoshida hill and its pagoda from the upper floor. The house is sunlit all day.

The large kitchen / dining room is perfect for lively moments together, which you can continue in the garden in summer or in the small Japanese salon.
Upstairs, a first Japanese room offers the experience of futon beds. The second, the familiar comfort of a Western bed.

Ground floor: Large kitchen / dining room, Japanese sitting room, Japanese bathroom (shower and Japanese furo bath) and toilet.

1st floor: West bedroom with a double bed, Japanese room with futon beds, small desk and toilet.

Reikanji House is close to the temple of the same name and a few meters from the favorite walk of Kyotoïtes, the Philosophers' Path.

Nearby is a small market with fresh produce, Fresco, very convenient for those who want dinner at home, and a delicious bakery.

Bus lines are also close to the house for easy access to other tourist areas of the city.

Our opinion

Reikanji House offers modern comfort, just a few steps away from the Philosopher's Path, with a unique view that can't be beat. 
Sunlit and spacious, it's a perfect house for lively moments with your family or between friends.

Un grand merci à Vivre Le Japon et à Clément pour cette maison idéalement située. Les couleurs d'automne à Kyoto s'annoncent magnifiques. Les temples à proximité valent la visite sous un grand soleil, et la pluie n'est arrivée que le dernier jour!

We have spent 4 wonderful days in Kyoto. As always, it was too short. Anyway, we enjoyed to stay in this lovely house and tried to follow as many tips as possible from Clément. Thanks a lot Clément for the kind hosting. We may back to this wonderful place.

Une petite maison toute simple, calme et pleine de charme. Dans un quartier retiré et idéal pour se reposer et méditer. Nous avons passé un séjour inoubliable.
