house Teppanyaki

A Japanese house with a modern touch, near the Philosopher's Walk


The illuminated signs of Teppanyaki House are a reminder that not too long ago this was a restaurant, visited by many grilled food lovers of the neighborhood surrounding the Philosopher's Walk.

Behind the preserved white facade, the architects of Den Nen have combined the best of tradition, modernity, and history.
A long bar counter, a Japanese ofuro bath for two overlooking a miniature garden, a tatami room to sleep on futon but also a Western bedroom overlooking the living room with views of Mount Daimonji.
The best of modern Japanese creation has been sought in the choice of furniture, you'll find here a Flanel Hiyoshiya sofa, Takehei and Makoto Koizumi for R + R.

Ground floor: kitchen countertop, bathroom and toilet, small Japanese garden.

Upper level: Living room with Japanese Japanese bedding (futon x3).

Open space with a double bed (120 cm)

The area, rich in shops, supermarkets, cafes and restaurants, offers everything needed for a cozy and friendly stay.  

Our opinion

A carefully restored former restaurant, Teppanyaki House keeps its charm with its countertop kitchen and beautiful spaces to relax in the large bathroom or bedrooms. The furniture choices will appeal to lovers of pure form.

Maison idéalement placée pour découvrir Kyoto. Alentours très agréables (chemin de la philosophie, temples...), et proche de plusieurs lignes de bus très pratiques. L’ancien restaurant est magnifiquement retapé avec une réserve de taille: pas de climatisation dans la chambre du haut, ce qui a rendu assez pénibles les nuits pendant notre séjour d’août caniculaire. Un grand merci à Philippe pour son accueil aussi sympathique qu’efficace : son plan avec des annotations nous a accompagné pendant tout notre séjour, et ses conseils de restaurant étaient parfaits !

Nous sommes très satisfaits de l'accueil et de la disponibilité de Julien. Quant à la journée passée avec Alexandre c'était super. Je souligne également la gentillesse et la réactivité de Clément à Paris qui nous a vraiment facilité les choses.

Nous avons passé 12 nuits dans la maison Teppanyaki en mai 2019. Un premier séjour mémorable à Kyoto, très apprécié par toute la famille. La maison est très bien desservie par les bus. Nous avons manqué de temps pour voir tout ce qui piquait notre curiosité. Nous reviendrons ! Nous tenons à souligner l'excellent travail de notre Travel angel Aurore Redon. Elle a répondu à nos nombreuses questions et nous a permis d'optimiser le temps perdu en logistique pour l'organisation de nos multiples activités. Aurore et son accueil chaleureux après un long vol, sa gentillesse et sa grande disponibilité a contribué à rendre notre séjour des plus agréables.
