Michi purchased this townhome in 2013

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.

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

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

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.

My home away from home in Kyoto from now on!

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.

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

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.

Can tell that the owners had put in quite a bit of effort and good planning to transform this little space to a very homely place and absolutely functional with everything we needed : WIFI, queen-size bed, sofa bed, cooking stove, washer, small dining space... Blue Tengu turned out exactly like what we saw in the pictures and more! It's located in a quiet and safe neighborhood, just a short walk from the Shichijo station on the Keihan line. Overall we thoroughly enjoyed our 5 days stay in Kyoto with Blue Tengu as our base. Both Keith and Michi-san were also very helpful and responded very quickly when we needed help.
