SOPHISTICATED MACHIYA NEAR GION, AUTHENTIC 'KYOTO' ATMOSPHERE

Kyoto Townhome Rental Photos and Description

1 bedrooms, 1 full bathrooms, 3 to 4 Sleeps

This is a small machiya located in one of the most picturesque parts of Kyoto, Gion district which is kyoto's most famous traditional area is in walking distance. If you are looking for the very KYOTO experience, this is a perfect location.

This house is completely renovated in 2010, Very comfortable and cozy space for a small group after a long day of sightseeing!

Location: Very close to Kiyomizu Temple, Yasaka Shrine, Kyoto’s most famous cherry blossom viewing site Maruyama Park, and etc. The location, Sanjyo area is perfect spot for everyone. It is very convenient location, the kyoto's biggest street SHIJYO street is just around the corner, and yet still very quiet at night. You can find everything in a walking distance. Ancient temples, museums, restaurants, bars, cute cafes, shops, department stores - it's all here! Also the bus stop and train station are very close to the house, (literally 30 sec by walking to the bus stop and 2 minutes to the train station.) so it's very easy access to all other areas in Kyoto!

There is a famous Kamo river close to the house, you can have a day or night picnic by the river if the weather in nice out.

House: The house is very modern sophisticated Machiya , yet has a very old Japanese feel to it. Inside of the house was renewed in the late 2010, but we reused some of the materials that was used in the old house from more than 100 years ago, it gives very unique antique taste! The house has a small basic kitchen with a little fridge and microwave, Full bathroom with bath tub, and even a small garden! One bedroom is in upstairs and has 1 single bed and 1 double bed, the other one is Japanese Tatami room in downstairs that also can be used as a living room.

I grew up in Japan (Hyogo) and spend almost half of my life outside the country, and every time I came home, I would go visit Kyoto dreaming about living there. I love everything related to art, design, and traveling.

Misaki Sano purchased this townhome in 2010

This property was a very old traditional Machiya located in a very convenient location where you can feel and experience a real Kyoto life. I thought it would be a perfect location for people who travels to kyoto and want to experience Kyoto.

Comfortable, beautiful machiya in a convenient location in Eastern Kyoto

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Dec 5, 2013
  • Stayed: Nov 2013
My wife and twin 6 year old sons spent 10 days here as our home base for a fall trip to the Kansai region in late November. From Kyoto, we were able to take day trips to Osaka, Kobe and Kanazawa. This lovely Machiya is located in Eastern Kyoto just one block north of the historic Gion quarter. Easily in walking distance are Shijo dori and the Gion Quarter to the South, Chion-in and Shoren-in temples to the East, and the main downtown Kawaramachi district and Pontocho to the west. The machiya is well maintained, impeccably clean and cozy. The bedroom easily sleeps 4 and the outside tatami room can accomodate another person with a futon mattress. The bathroom, soaking tub and shower are detached from the main house but privately located and modern. There is an additional bathroom downstairs near the entry way. The small kitchen includes a toaster, hotpot for boiling water, and an induction plate for cooking as well as a microwave and refrigerator. Located within 5 minutes walking distance are a Fresco supermarket, and several conbini (convenience stores) including 2 Family Marts. Also nearby are several neighborhood restaurants including a gyoza (dumpling) restaurant, a terrific Chinese restaurant (Ryumon), several izakaya restaurants, yakitori and McDonald's (if necessary). Access to the subway line is straightforward as the Higashiyama station is less than 5 minutes east on Sanjo dori and can take you to Kyoto station with one transfer at Karasuma Oike stop. This was our first time staying at a Machiya but it was a terrific experience and the Cotoriya Machiya was perfect for our travels.

Hidden treasure! Small but perfectly formed!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Nov 3, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
Despite my struggles finding this house in the pouring rain (vegetable shop was closed), this treasure was worth the hassle. I rewarded myself by drinking my green tea, looking out over the courtyard, listening to the rain! It is a beautifully, restful, peaceful house, with great attention to detail (loved the view of the courtyard from the bath tub; the desk in the front room). I loved the huge sense of space despite it being small and its simplicity. The owner was responsive + helpful on email. I would definitely return!

If you arrive when the vegetable shop is shut, to the right of the white van is the house. There's also supermarkets 3 mins away and some cute souvenir shops on the main street opp Higashiyama station which are reasonably priced. Also bring ear plugs as it is a little noisy from the main road; I did this (am very sensitive to noise) and was absolutely fine.

Machiya house in great location

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Apr 22, 2013
  • Stayed: Apr 2013
This traditional Kyoto machiya is named Cotoriya and has been beautifully renovated and is wonderfully located in a quiet traditional narrow street with convenient access to all of Kyoto.
in our four days we walked to three of Kyoto's four corners, often returning on convenient buses and trains to our cozy and relaxing machiya. We enjoyed the tiny neighborhood restaurants and the bigger ones a short walk to the other side of the Sanjo bridge. We completely enjoyed our stay and feel we experienced a bit of Kyoto's rich history..
