Kyoto Condo Rental Photos and Description

3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathrooms, Sleeps 5

Why not try staying at the Higashiyama-An, ?your home in Kyoto??

The Higashiyama-An is the ground floor of a condominium located in a district filled with temples and cultural facilities, right next to the Higashiyama mountain range. All rooms are very quiet corner rooms with good natural lighting.

There is a Western-style room furnished with two beds and a Japanese-style tatami room in which futons enough for two people can be placed. In addition there is a Western-style room facing the garden and furnished with a semi-double sofa bed, which can be used as a sofa in the day and a bed at night. In this room, there is enough space to lay out a futon for another person. Computers and the Internet (both LAN and Wi-fi) also are available.

These three rooms are each fully independent to maintain your privacy.

Please enjoy dining or friendly conversation in the dining room, which has a comfortable table setting. The dining room is fully equipped with a television and a blue-ray disc playe

The kitchen is also perfect. All the necessary tableware and cooking utensils are assembled. Please enjoy cooking with ingredients from Kyoto or cooking dishes from your own country as occasion dictates.

The bathroom is furnished with a washing machine equipped with a drier. All everyday essentials are assembled and are at your disposal, so life during your stay will be comfortable and convenient. Towels are available.

While being a wonderful living environment in which you can fully enjoy the four seasons of Kyoto, Higashiyama-An also has convenient access. The vividly scarlet Ootorii (gate) of Heian Jingu Shrine stands towering over the surroundings just a five minute walk to the north and the spacious park near the shrine where you can enjoy seasonal flowers is also famous.

The area surrounding Heian Jingu Shrine is a cultural zone known as Okazaki Park and dotted with national and municipal art galleries, libraries, Miyako Messe, Kyoto Kanze Kaikan, Kyoto Municipal Zoo and Kyoto Kaikan Hall in which plays and concerts are held.

Walking five minutes to the east, you can find Keage Incline (an inclined railroad for carrying boats) that made water transport from Lake Biwa to Kyoto possible. Flat cars and traditional boats from the period are placed on the preserved site of the rails. Following the Lake Biwa Canal along the mountains brings you to the exotic brick arches, parts of which are often used for scenes on TV or in movies. Unusually, the water current in this canal flows from the south to the north, against the prevailing geographical trend of the area.

The canal connects with Nanzenji Temple, Eikando, the Philosopher's Path, and Ginkaku-ji Temple.

Shorenin Temple gates. In the cherry blossom and autumn colour seasons, a wonderful silhouette of the large camphor tree is described in a blue light during the night-time illuminations. It is a temple that is popular with Kyoto local residents also.

Neighboring the temple is Chionin Temple, which in turn connects to Maruyama Park, famous for weeping cherry blossoms, Yasaka Shrine, known for Gion festival which is one of the three biggest festivals in Japan, and finally to Gion itsself, the entertainment district of apprentice Geisha. The walking course that winds on past the pagodas of Yasaka, along Kodaiji, Ichinen-zaka, Ninen-zaka and Sannen-zaka and finally to Kiyomizudera Temple allows you to fully enjoy the refinement of Kyoto.

The closest bus stop is a three minute walk to the west and the subway is also just five minutes on foot. Convenient transportation facilities allow you to easily access Osaka, Kobe or Shiga prefecture.

Great Accommodation, close to the best sights in Kyoto

  • Stayed: Jan 2014
Stayed here with my daughter, this is a great accommodation in the Higashiyama district of Kyoto, walking distance to some of the best sights in the city. The accommodation is really comfortable and well equipped with instructions written everywhere in English. The owner is extremely helpful, kind and very polite. The owner went above and beyond to make sure our visit to Kyoto was a great experience and that included helping us planning the trips to securing the permission to visit the famous Saiho-ji (Koke-dera) temple.

Owner's Response: Dear Alok-San,

I am more than happy to hear that you and your daughter enjoyed your time in Kyoto and Higashiyama-An. I do also believe that your experience in the world heritage Saiho-ji leave you unforgettable memories. In the future, you should try to come in another season to enjoy a different way the wonders of Kyoto. I will be a real pleasure to meet you again.

Five adults in our family stayed very comfortably for 9 nights. Everything is exactly as described or better -- immaculate, fully-equipped and extremely close to many beautiful sites. The washer-dryer was very welcome, also the tiny but well-planted garden. Fumiko provides bilingual laminated instructions for every appliance, plus maps to shopping and cultural sites. All our communications with her were prompt, straight-forward, and honest to the penny. To help taxi drivers, print out Fumiko's Japanese language pages with the building address and photo. (Drivers all also know the 'Westin Hotel' which is just up the hill.)

Owner's Response: Thank for using my property for you and your family's stay and I am really happy to hear you spent a pleasant time there. You can consider Higashiyama-An as your house abroad and do not hesitate to visit Kyoto in a different season. I wish you all the best for this year.

Great Place for 4

Our group of 4 stayed five nights in April 2013 in the middle of our trip across Japan. Our group was looking for something more affordable than two hotel rooms. Overall, Higashiyama-an is a very good value for the price. The key things we were looking for were two sleeping rooms, and a washer/dryer. We did not spend much time there during the day because we were usually out doing things all day.

The owner was flexible with the check in time, and accommodated a last minute time change (1 hour later than originally scheduled). At check in, the owner greeted us warmly and prepared tea. Although we did not speak much Japanese, we were able to understand all the essential details. She provided some helpful information brochures on current events in Kyoto, such as a night cherry blossom viewing cruise which two of us went on.

There is a separate utility charge based on usage, ours came to 3020 JPY for 4 people for five days, which seemed reasonable.

The listing description was accurate and the property was clean and well maintained. We booked our stay about 5 months ahead of time.

I would recommend this property if you are staying in Kyoto for more than a few days and plan to spend at least two days sightseeing on the east side of the city. We also took two day trips from Kyoto to Osaka and Nara while we were staying here. The location is decent for sightseeing in Higashiyama.

Thanks!
Owner's Response: I am really glad to read you enjoyed your time in Kyoto. It is my priority to make my guests relax themselves and feel like if they were in their own house and not in a kind of hotel. Higashiyama-An is also a good start point to Osaka and Nara. I hope you made unforgettable memories in Kyoto and I will be more than happy to welcome you again. I wish you all the best you can dream of for this year.

Fantastic stay in Kyoto

  • Stayed: Jul 2012
We recently stayed at Higashiyama-an for 5 nights while attending a conference at the International Conference Center in Kyoto. This was a perfect location for traveling to the conference center, as well as ideally situated for sightseeing---close to Gion, the subway, and quietly tucked away in a beautiful neighborhood setting. The landlord was a gracious host, helpful and kind. For the price, you will never find a better location in all of Asia. I cannot recommend this place highly enough!
Recommended for:  Adventure Seekers, Tourists without a Car, Sightseeing
Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing and staying at Higashiyama-An. All of you were so polite and I was so glad to meet your group. I also appreciate you kept the apartment clean while you were here, even did a washing before you leave, and saved electric power consumption.

Please consider Higashiyama-An as your home away from home in Kyoto or try another property, Ginkaku-An, next time.

Wish you all good health.
