Overview

Kyoto House Rental Photos and Description

House, 2 Bedrooms, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Located on a quiet lane leading up to the Chawan-zaka approach to Kiyomizu Temple (an UNESCO World Heritage site) and just minutes from the hustle and bustle of the busy souvenir shops and restaurants lining Ninnen-zaka and Sannen-zaka below the temple’s main gates, this modern machiya-style house was completely reformed and refurbished in 2007 and is maintained and managed by the proprietors of the Kaguraya Bed and Breakfast (recommended in the Lonely Planet Japan Guide).

The interior offers a harmonious combination of Japanese design and beautiful antiques with modern features such as hardwood floors and Iranian gabeh carpets. Downstairs, there is a full modern kitchen adjacent to a dining area with a traditional Japanese mizuya cupboard. The dining area opens out on to a deck beneath which flows a small stream from the temple. There is a western-style toilet and a full Japanese-style bathroom (complete with the book “How to Take a Japanese Bath”) downstairs. The two bedrooms are upstairs. The large, high ceiling-ed Japanese-style tatami mat bedroom sleeps up to 3 people in single or double futons. This room has a 32' flat screen TV and DVD player. Across the hall, the Western bedroom has a queen-sized futon bed.

The neighborhood in the Higashiyama district in which the house is located has been catering to tourists and pilgrims for centuries. Kiyomizu Temple is an especially popular destination for viewing the cherry blossoms and the autumn colors. Visit the numerous shops selling traditional Kiyomizu-yaki pottery as you wander the steep and ancient back lanes paved with stone north to Yasaka Shrine (10 minutes), or Hanamikoji Street (15 minutes), the center of the Gion, where the geisha ply their trade. From Kyoto Station, it’s 15 minutes by bus to the Gojo-zaka bus stop, a short walk from the house. There are also 2 bicycles available for guest use. Our modern machiya-style house in Gion-Kiyomizu is perfectly located for enjoying the best the ancient city of Kyoto has to offer.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Our visit to Kyoto was very successful in every sense, we enjoyed it so much. Much of it was due to your nice house in which we lived for two weeks and felt there like home. We loved the neighborhood and on our last Friday in Kyoto had a long walk through the little alleys of the area. We just loved it and decided that this was the most beautiful area in Kyoto...."

A perfect stay

  • 5 of 5
My family of four (2 adults, 2 kids) staying here in early January. The place is perfect down a quaint ally. Acco has thought of everything and everything is beautiful and perfect. Even though there was snow when we were there we were kept nice and toasty, unlike at other traditional homes we stayed in during our vacation. Acco was the ultimate host-she helped us make a dinner reservations, gave us directions and met us near the taxi stand. Her English is perfect and she is kind, helpful and knowledgable. We hated to leave. Thanks!!

Perfect stay and great Kyoto experience

  • 5 of 5
This place was perfect! Me and my husband (Dutch) stayed a few days after busy Tokyo. Cute typical Japanese house. Choice between western style bed or futon. Cute living space and perfect area. Acco is super friendly and she speaks the best english so we got all information we wished. Great breakfast and lunch places just around the corner. Highly recommended. Thanks Acco! X Caroline

Wonderful

  • 5 of 5
Such a nice cozy property, close to all public transport, sights, shopping, grocery, restaurants and everything else most tourists need. The house is traditional, yet renovated to provide modern amenities. It is quiet and in a back street but 2 minutes walk away from the noise and continuous bustle of busy traffic. Pictures describe the house accurately.
Acco, our host is most considerate and helpful. Our family had a most memorable time in this ancient city thanks to this website and great host.
Thank you and cannot wait to be back again.

Wonderful stay at Kiyomizu house

  • 5 of 5
Staying at the Kiyomizu house was a wonderful experience for us. Acco was very helpful and a great resource of local information. The location was very convenient to buses, groceries, shopping, the Gion district, temples, yet so very quiet. The house was air-conditioned which was great to return to after a day of sighseeing in the humid summer heat. The house was small but quite adequate for the four adults in our party. We We really loved the tatami room, the large table and chairs, and the kitchen had all that we needed for cooking, though we ate out mostly. We highly recommend the house and would gladly return if the opportunity arises in the future!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We found this property on-line and the photos and descriptions were very accurate. The Machiya met all of our needs. It was clean and comfortable and had everything we needed to feel at home, even fresh flowers! The kitchen was well-stocked with cookware and dishes, there were plenty of towels and bedding and even a washer/dryer. We especially appreciated the quiet location that was easily accessible to the taxi, bus, train station, grocery stores, restaurants and shops. It was the perfect home base for our sightseeing without needing a car. Acco-san was the perfect hostess. She even provided us with some delicious cookies for our train ride back to Tokyo. Thank you Acco-san for a most memorable time in Japan. We will definitely be back and have already recommended you to friends.

Live like a local

  • 5 of 5
Acco's impeccable taste is a delightful welcome through the Kiyomizu house, from traditional balcony Japanese garden to the fresh simple ikebana flowers. Our family enjoyed a week here to relax recuperate and absorb Japan. The facilities are fantastic, location THE BEST! Less than 2km scenic walk to downtown Gion, take the early morning solitary stroll through Kiyomizu temple, the monks pray and chant at 7am at the waterfall. It feels like your own. Excellent accommodation in Japan. Authentic experience. Highly recommend. We will be back to stay. Thank you Acco.
