Juichi – Literally the number 11, refers to the 11 headed Bodhisattva of compassion –Kannon, which a national treasure statue of her is enshrined in the near by temple Rokuharamitsuji.

The house is located in a neighborhood where secular and religious are interweaving into a fascinating puzzle. Rich in culture and history, from the dancing saint Kuya to the palaces of the Taira and Minamoto- The strongest Samurai families of the time ( 12th century). It is the ground of one of the most known episodes of Japanese history, the battle between the Taira and the Minamoto which is still a very popular story in many Noh, Kabuki plays as well Japanese TV dramas to the present day.

The neighborhood around the house is very active and welcoming. It offers a great deal of insight into the every day life of the people in an area less known to visitors. This ensures a very local experience “out of the beaten tracks”, yet in the middle of town. It is a great base for experiencing local daily life which yet living the tradition and heritage of the area through many temples Shrines and local spots.

There is railway stn & 24hr convenience stores, big local supermarket within 10 mins walk and variety of restaurants, cafes around, while the house remains perfectly quite and secluded!

Great location, great price!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for a week with another family - 8 of us including 4 kids ages 6 to 11. The unit is just as described. We had plenty of space to sleep in the three bedrooms, surprisingly large dining table and a nice couch as well. As usual in
Japan, the walls are paper thin, so bring your earplugs if you are with a group. Kitchen is very thin and narrow, but fully equipped. Two thin people can pass each other (barely). Parts of ceiling are low, but as others mentioned, this is part of the charm. Bathroom has separate shower with tub, separate toilet room, and separate sink, so easier to use with larger group.
Owners were VERY responsive to the minor issues we had.
Neighborhood is great. 20 - 25 minute walk to Kyoto main train station, 5 minutes to Gion area, few minutes to subway stop/ river. Easy to catch taxi or bus as well.
Overall - highly recommended for an authentic Kyoto experience if you don't want to be in a Ryokan or need a kitchen. Price is great too.

We had an amazing stay at the Ju-Ichi-an House. It's a lovely house and in a great location in Kyoto. The house and community are super charming.

Property was very clean and well-maintained and owners were super helpful. I would definitely recommend this spot.

BEAUTIFUL KYOTO, BEAUTIFUL TOWN HOUSE

  • 5 of 5
Celebrating my daughter's recent high school graduation, we were in Tokyo and decided to travel to beautiful Kyoto for a change of pace. Found this beautiful gem of a property and was able to quickly and efficiently book it for our stay. Though it had more room than just the two of us needed, it was nonetheless a very well appointed property with everything we needed. Close to lots of shopping...and a scrumptious little bakery...it was a perfect base of operations for our explorations. We loved the shower/tub and the feel of the neighborhood.
The place had all the qualities we were looking for: clean, traditional feel, great location, and a helpful reservation and arrival staff.
And though I would agree with previous reviewer about the low beams/etc...being 6'4" I probably left small dents on most of them...it only added to the overall charm of the place. I will definitely stay here again when I come back to beautiful Japan.

Car: not necessary

The Location of the house is absolutely great- 15 min walk to Gion the famous Geisha area 5 min walk to Miyagawa-cho, another, less known Geisha area, yet charming and cozy, 10-15 min to downtown, 10 min to the Lovely area of Kiyomizu and the picturesque street on the eastern mountains. Conveniently located to bus and train line -the Gion Shijo or Gojo stations on the Keihan line.

Yet the location of the house, deep in a narrow alley, keeps it quite and private.
