MACHIYA INN - CENTRAL KYOTO - FOUR PRIVATE ROOMS, STYLISH HIGASHIYAMA INN

Kyoto Rental Photos and Description

Private rental units with baths, kitchens, WiFi, laundry; each unit sleeps 2-4

Sakara - the characters mean 'cherry blossom', 'aroma', and 'ease/comfort' --

Sakara has four unique and individual units with Japanese decor, private restroom, bath, laundry machine, kitchenette, and high quality western bedding.

Free wireless internet signal, TV, and local phone line standard in all rooms.

Sakara offers two suites in the back building, two couples efficiencies upstairs, and a common tatami room next to the lobby overlooking a Zen garden. The first floor tatami lounge has complimentary coffee and green tea for guests.

We want you to get the most out of your trip to Kyoto. With that in mind we have designed this accommodation especially for the foreign traveler in Kyoto.

Traditional styling is important to us, so we have incorporated the Japanese elements we love with an eye to Western comfort.

You will enjoy the feel of a classic historical machiya building; natural wood, plaster, paper, and tatami highlighted with Japanese art and furniture.

The Best of Both Worlds: : *** Sakara offers you the convenience of a hotel or Ryokan with the privacy of a house rental. There are kitchens in all rooms so you can cook as you like. You can do laundry and take a hot bath. All rooms are privately locked and soundproofed.

*** Japanese feel and decor are complimented with highest quality bedding, High ceilings and doorways, and personal touches. Art and antiques blend the modern with the traditional.

*** Sakara is walking distance from the Gion district, shops, and subway. There are many nearby cafes and restaurants.

Great for groups large and small: The entire building sleeps 12-14, so it is perfect for larger groups wanting to stay together. *** You may rent all four rooms for 60,000 yen per night.

*** The Suites are great for a family or a group of 3-5 adults.

*** Two of the upstairs rooms are designed specifically with couples in mind.

*** Please contact us directly about discounts for longer stays or more than one room.

*** Availability calendar indicates dates when all four rooms are booked***

So much to see, so little time

Our group of 4 adults and 1 teen had plenty of room staying in the bamboo and hinoshi suites. The location was fantastic, lots of restaurants and bars a short walk away. Bus and train stop very close. I recommend getting the bus map from the tourist office that is just a few blocks away, it was a real help getting to all of the great temples and shrines that the city has to offer. The rooms were very clean and comfortable. Having laundry in the rooms was a real plus but plan on air drying your clothes when possible. Being located down the shopping arcade added to the ambiance of our stay, even the raw fish smell that was always present. If in Kyoto again, I would not even consider staying elsewhere. Sakara is an incredible value.

Fantastic Little Place!

What a fantastic place to stay on a quiet little covered side street steps from the subway, and within walking distance of the downtown sites. It definitely felt like a home more than a hotel, with everything taken care of, down to the detergent for the washing machine.

Great stay!

We stayed here for a week with our 2 year old son in the Bamboo Suite during September. The (walking) proximity to shrines, playgrounds, Gion Corner, the canal (for afternoon paddles) plus the close subway and buses made it a great base from which we explored Kyoto. The team were really helpful recommending areas we wouldn't previously have explored too. Highly recommended!

We came to see the Kyoto sights and found the charm of Sakara Kyoto to be very pleasing and clean. The location made us feel immersed in the culture. The property is within walking distance to the Gion district and close to most of the prominent sights in Kyoto. We were very comfortable and rented two rooms, one for ourselves and one that out two teenage children shared. I would definitely stay here again and am hoping to plan another trip to Kyoto before we leave Japan. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and we enjoyed the ambiance of the shopping street where the property is located.
Owner's Response: Thank you so much, and we would love to see you again sometime. Kyoto has a lot to offer at all different times of the year. Good luck in your future travels.
