About Michi

We are an International Japanese/Australian couple who love this city and welcome the opportunity to share it with others.

Michi purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Michi chose Kyoto

The Higashiyama district is one of the best places for sightseeing in Kyoto. It is full of temples, shrines, gardens, museums and places of interest. Sanjusangendo temple is just 2min away, as is the Kyoto National Museum.

What makes this townhome unique

3min walk to local station and 5min taxi from Kyoto station make it a very convenient base for exploring both Kyoto and nearby cities.

Guestbook comments from the owner

As a frequent visitor to Kyoto , I was delighted to find a brand new rental house near many historical sights and museums with easy access to Kyoto Station and local transportation.



Blue Tengu house is located in a quiet alleyway away from the noisy street and traffic yet close to many wonderful restaurants and shops.



The owners have managed to combine Japanese ambiance with comfortable Western style bed and furnishings.



In the future, this will be my Kyoto home away from home.

Great base for exploring

  • 5 of 5
The apartment is in a nice district of Kyoto, where there are a lot of interesting restaurants and shops around. It's a very good place to do sightseeing because its close to the Eastern mountains where so many intriguing temples, shrines, gardens and museums are located. The apartment is simple and clean, but it has everything you need! The internet was fast. The shower has great water pressure. The electric toilet was fun to use and the washer/dryer combo was a godsend!

Great communication from the host. Directions were very clear and we had no problem finding the place even though it is hidden in a small and quaint alleyway. We really felt like we were part of a local Japanese neighborhood while staying here. By the time our week was done, we had made friends with several of the neighbors and the owners of the tea shop on the corner. The Japanese are so polite and lovely to deal with. Michi was always helpful and answered quickly to all our questions. We liked it a lot and would recommend the Blue tengu to anyone.

Excellent!

  • 5 of 5
I really enjoyed my stay at the Blue Tengu. The location is great, in a quiet neighborhood that is just a few-minute walk to the Shichijo station and about a 15-minute walk to the Kyoto station. The property is clean and the facilities are first rate. It was great having a small kitchen and laundry. The wifi was excellent. The owners were very accommodating and responded quickly to all requests. They also provide a lot of helpful information about the area.

A Perfect Stay

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Blue Tengu for 4 nights and it was perfect. There were three of us--two in the bed and once on the sofa bed--and it was just the right amount of space.

Located in a cozy alley we had excellent privacy and there are restaurants, shops, and convenience stores all around. I felt like we got a small taste of what it might be like to live in Japan--even if for only 4 nights! It was also really nice to hit up the grocery store and be able to make a home cooked meal while on vacation.

Aside from day trips, we were able to walk everywhere we needed to go and since we were midway through a multi-city trip around Japan, it was nice to be able to do a small load of laundry.

We also really appreciated the guide book which told of nearby things as well as how to operate the laundry, aircon, etc.

I will recommend this to any friends I have traveling to Kyoto and will definitely try to stay here again if I am back.

Welcoming, stress-free home in the heart of Kyoto.

  • 5 of 5
We chose Blue Tengu because of its close vicinity to our favourite sight-seeing spots in Kyoto: Sanjusangendo, Tofukuji temples and the magic Fushimi-Inari area. Blue Tengu is within walking distance (15 min) to Kyoto Station which make it an ideal base to make day trips to Nara, Osaka, Kobe or even Koyasan ??? temple mountain.

After a super-exhausting 48 hour trip we were grateful to land at the cozy Blue Tengu. It is just 3 minutes from Keihan Shichijo train station and tucked away from the city buzz so it was the perfect place to cuddle up and catch up on sleep.

The interior is clean and homey and comes fully equipped with washing/drying machine, western style bed (superb mattress for our sore backs!) and the hot water pressure is better than at our home. The reliable high-speed internet connection came in very handy as well.

Because it is nested in a typical residential neighbourhood, Blue Tengu gave us a feel for everyday life in Japan. This single family house has been recently renovated in a way that brings out the beauty of its Japanese-style wood beam architecture. The smart lighting make it a friendly, well lit place – unusual for a house this old.

At Blue Tengu our Kyoto explorations started whenever just outside the front door. Within a couple walking minutes we found a public bath house (Sakurayu ????), a curry shop, two convenience stores, a bakery, several restaurants, Kamogawa river and the Kyoto National Museum. It was very convenient to hop onto a city bus to reach other areas in Kyoto.

Unfortunately we didn’t have enough time to witness the making of traditional Japanese sweets (Wagashi ???) at the Kanshudo (???) store, so we have one more good reason to stay again at Blue Tengu next time we make it to Kyoto.

Very new and clean and convenient

  • 5 of 5
It appears this place has recently been renovated as everything is brand new. The bathroom is ultra-modern and very clean.?The all-in-one washing machine and dryer was super convenient and very quiet, though its takes a few hours to do a complete cycle. The location was really good - close enough to the station but far enough away from the hustle and bustle to provide a retreat and place to relax after sightseeing all day. We were able to cook when we wanted to since there is a well equipped kitchen and a convenience store close by. We could wash and dry clothes as we needed and everything needed is supplied. It is close to the local subway (Keihan Shichijo) and just 2 stops or a nice 20 min walk to Downtown area. There were also some nice restaurants, bars and cafes close by. The old restaurant directly across the road (called Warajeya) was a real treat. It doesn’t look like much from the outside (another old building) but when you enter there is a garden and the rooms are like little teahouses. Great if you like unagi.

Had a wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time at this lovely house. The owner was very fast in responding to our enquiries and we appreciated the various restaurant and other recommendations offered. After a busy day of sightseeing, returning to this apartment felt like coming home. It was easy to relax. The kitchen was great for breakfast, but we did not use it as much as we had intended. There are many great and cheap places to eat nearby and the recommendations provided are detailed and useful. We got takeout sushi a couple of times from a place not 2min walk away and it was delicious.

All instructions for the apartment were clear and we were able to use everything no problems at all. But we were still a bit confused by the garbage rules. We put ours out on the wrong day and apparently upset the neighbors. Would totally recommend this apartment as an awesome base for exploring Kyoto and also day trips from Kyoto.
