About Ken

I grew up in Canada, went to school in the United States and have spent the last 15 years of my life in Kyoto. I fell in love with this city, its temples, shrines and festivals within my first few years here and don't think I'll ever leave.

Ken purchased this house in 2004

Why Ken chose Kyoto

This house faces the Takase river. The view offers cherry blossoms in Spring, fireflies in early summer, beautiful leaves in Autumn. This house is in a wonderful area. Easily accessible in a quiet and safe neighborhood.

What makes this house unique

Fantastic location (central) with a riverside view. Quiet neighborhood and traditional neighbors. Well equipped facilities and lots of helpful information to make your stay in Kyoto memorable.

Just what I wished for!!

  • 5 of 5
To address questions asked: The listing description is completely accurate. The location is perfect for walking to transportation, and sites. The layout works well and was a perfect accommodation for myself and my daughter giving us each the privacy we needed. Having a washing machine for a two week stay could not be beat. The house was immaculate. Ken, the owner provided all the information we could have needed regarding restaurants, stores, sites etc.. This was my fifth trip to Japan but in many ways it felt "all new" because we were "living" in the city, and Ken made that possible. I would definitely recommend this property to best friends and relatives.
I took this trip to celebrate my 70th birthday and to share it with one of my daughters. We visited fabulous temples many of which are within walking distance, an easy cab, or subway from around the corner. We went to Nara. We went into the surrounding country side which is very quickly amazingly rural and agricultural. We went to markets, and really neat stores. We loved the local pubs including Kura Kura where we returned three times (English menu) and An Gies which has great fish. People were very friendly with banter and we shared tastes of all the dishes. Ken is a food writer and his recommendations after I said what I was looking for were right on. I cannot recommend this property more highly and yes a beautiful small river is right outside the door and although near busy streets, it is a very very quiet area.

Great location and comfortable accommodation

  • 5 of 5
We stayed for two and a half weeks and found the house to be ideal for a family of four. Ken was incredibly helpful with restaurant suggestions and sights to see. If we ever return to Kyoto we would book this house again.

clean, convenient and beautiful house

  • 5 of 5
Our Kyoto vacation was a very good experience to all of us, and one of the key factor is out staying in Kiyomizu House. The location is super convenient. Walking/cycling distance to everywhere for dining, shopping and exercising. The kitchen is fully equipped for daily cooking (especially the Nespresso and rice cooker). The bedrooms on 2nd floor are quient and tatami bedding is comfortable to afford good sleeping. On the last 2 days we rented a car to visit Kyoto suburb. The parking lot within 1-min walking is just JPY900 per 24 hrs. I will strongly suggest Kiyomizu House tenants to utalize that cheap and convenient parking facilities as necessary. We believe we will visit Kyoto very soon, and Kiyomizu House will still be our 1st choice.

KiOMiZU house was amazing! Authentic and charming!

  • 5 of 5
KiOMiZU house will be my starting point for accommodation in Kyoto for future visits, plus recommendation to friends. In a part of town close to main train station and just set out of the main area... 5>15 mins walk to many of the best attractions. Thanks Ken!

Beautiful and convenient location and lovely little house

  • 5 of 5
Kiyumizo House was the perfect place to stay in Kyoto. It was very conveniently located, within walking distance of many temples, parks and gardens, cafes, bars and restaurants. It was also very pitcuresque, on the bank of a beautiful little canal with lovely autumn trees in all shades of reds, oranges and yellows. The house was compact, beautifully presented, spotlessly clean and very comfortable. It had a great kitchen and the futon beds were some of the most comfortable beds I have experienced in all my Japan travels. We highly recommend this house to couples or small family groups who are looking for somewhere that is very central but peaceful and quiet and a bit out of the hustle, bustle.

Japanese spirit in the center of Kyoto city

  • 5 of 5
We were looking for a typical Japanese style house with a strategic location. From Kiyomisu it is easy to reach Kyoto train station and many important touristic places by foot. That was important for us because we planed to make a whole visit of Kyoto (rent a byke for the most distant places is a great idea) but we also often took train to Osaka, Nara...
The house was really nice to live in, its owner, Ken, pay a grand attention in the choice of its amenities. Ken was also very helpfull.
Five stars for Kiyomisu house !!!!!

KiYOMiZU House is half way between Kyoto station and downtown Kyoto in a quiet magical location in front of the Takase river. All of the train lines and subway are within 15mins walking distance from the house, giving you easy access to surrounding cities and sightseeing spots.

Kyoto is famous for its food and there are amazing restaurants all around KiYOMiZU HOUSE.

The neighborhood is old and the neighbors are quiet. Its located in front of the Takasegawa river in Kyoto. You can find cherry blossoms all along this river in spring and even see fireflies in June.

KiYOMiZU HOUSE faces East so there is nice morning light but don't worry - there are also elegant blinds for those who just want to sleep in and wake up at their own pace.

All the appliances in KiYOMiZU HOUSE are new and quite modern so your stay will be very comfortable.

Let KiYOMiZU HOUSE be the place that you call home while you visit the most traditional & remarkable city in Japan.
