Kyoto Townhome Rental Photos and Description

1 bedroom, sofa bed , kitchen, , bath-shower , private garden( 5 sleeps)

Kyoto is famous for having been the ancient capital of Japan, dating back over 1200 years.The sheer beauty of the temples, shrines, gardens and culture imbued within, makes Kyoto one of the most revered places in the world.

Momiji-an (Autumn Maple) is one unit of Kyo Machiya Miyabi in Kiyomizu area, a big Kyoto traditional house, and was designed and divided in three machiya (Bairin-an, Shofu-an, Momiji-an) by renowned Kyoto based architect, Geoffrey P. Moussas.

Momiji-an is being meticulously preserved with the traditional techniques that have been handed down over the centuries. While sticking to tradition is important for the architect, updating the facilities, such as modern bath-shower room, high-tech toilet, kitchen, heating floor, are just as important to meet the present day needs of our selective clientele. The delicate balance between 'old and new' is what sets this apart.

Momiji-an is at the foot of Kiyomizu Temple, which is been designed a World Cultural Heritage, and very convenient to visit others famous temples, shrines, and Gion, the most famous Geisha district!

Enjoy Kyoto and the distinctive feautures of local townhomes by staying in a real Machiya, feeling the natural way of living and the change of seasons which distinguishes Kyoto' culture and its people.

City buses or rental bikes can take you to most famous sites in Kyoto within 30 minutes.

About Toshimitsu Negishi

Message from the owner:

Welcome to Kyoto! Our wooden houses were built in 1920'. Recently we renovated these houses by utilizing the original material as much as possible.

Please enjoy the feeling of traditional Kyoto house!

Toshimitsu Negishi purchased this townhome in 2012

Why Toshimitsu Negishi chose Kyoto

We could see a glitter of traditional atmosphere on the roof, wooden pillars, sliding doors or small gardens inside the house.

The townhouse is called Machiya and this house strongly stimulated us to restore for living. Machiya used to be townhouses or shops for the merchants in the 17 th century.

Not only temples and shrines, but machiya stay is an attractive experience for all who want to know more about Kyoto ' life style and its culture.

What makes this townhome unique

A 15 minutes walk will take you to the riverside of the Kamogawa. You can take a pleasent stroll along the river, or do shopping in the nearby Kawaramachi area, convenient during rainy days as the shopping streets are covered, like Nishiki food market street.

A night life spot is Pontocho, a narrow lane with no cars, full of elegant restaurants, bars, and where you can have a glimpse of a Geisha or Maiko on the way or from an appointment.

Next street west of Pontocho is Kiyamachi, a very lively night zone where you can find many kinds of restaurants, bars, pubs and more...

Enjoy Kyoto just walking from Momiji-an!

Inviting, comfortable, delightful home away from home

  • 5 of 5
We were three women traveling to Kyoto for our second visit within the past year. Last year we stayed in one of the other units in this Machiya Shofu-an and we were excited to come back to this welcoming place. Geographically this is located in the best area in Kyoto, so close to Kiyomizu, Gion, Pontocho, Sanjusangendo, Kodai-ji etc. Good access to groceries, restaurants and anything else you may need for your stay. Some lovely shops in the neighbourhood, crafts, pottery and antiques. You will find lots of helpful information in the unit for things to visit. I hope to go back again and stay in this well equipped Machiya! Loved it.

A perfect stay!

  • 5 of 5
We had an excellent time at the property. We spent 8 nights and we really felt at home.
The house is very cozy and comfortable. We were 4 adults and 2 kids, and we got along great.
The kitchen is tiny but very useful, we cooked every night!! It has all you need, and there is also a 24 hour supermarket 2 blocks away.
The bathroom has the best shower I've ever been in! It is just perfect!
There is a washer and drying machine which was perfect for us. We did laundry a few times and it worked very well.

Roxana was super kind and helpful. We found the house very easy when we arrived, and she was also waiting and welcoming us…

The neighbourhood is just perfect too. Very easy access to all places.

I only have good words for this review!!!

Thabks Roxana for everything! We will wait you in Buenos AIres!

Perfect

  • 5 of 5
This place was fantastic! Great location, easy to walk to temples and public transportation. There were instructions for everything from the remote control to the washing machine. Having the Nespresso machine was also wonderful, and made the stay so homey and comfortable. Roxana was so accommodating - allowing us to drop our bags earlier than check-in so we could go explore. After staying in hotels for the week prior, it was such a great space to relax and have as home base.

Staying at Momiji-an made our time in Kyoto even more special. The location is perfect - walking distance to temples, noodle shops, grocery store and bus line. The house was clean and ready for us on arrival. The manager, Roxanna, clearly explained how things worked, provided sightseeing and neighborhood tips. She was incredibly warm and helpful. The beautiful Japanese bath was a highlight of the house. We loved the hot soak after a day of walking. The futons were warm and comfy. The kitchen and living area are a bit tight. It is possible to cook breakfast and make tea, but attempting to cook an evening meal would be ambitious in this small space. The house works well for a family of 4, but I can't imagine it sleeping 5 very comfortably. (We had three sleep in the upstairs bedroom and one on the floor in the living room.) On a practical level, the laundry was great: washer/dryer in one machine that did both. If you want to feel independent and break out of staying in hotels, this is a great choice for Kyoto. The fully stocked Nespresso coffee maker was an added bonus!

Perfection in Kyoto

  • 5 of 5
Can't say enough good things about this wonderful home... had everything we needed, including a Nespresso machine, and a wonderful floorplan, and great service from the moment we reserved the place until the moment we checked out. Location could not be more perfect. Seriously, just stop looking, and book this wonderful house! They have three houses together right here, one smaller, one larger, all wonderful, but I think this was my favorite, especially for two travelers. Four people could probably stay here, but for me it'd be a little tight, but then again I like lots and lots of space when I travel.
