Kyoto Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Town house, 1 bedroom, kitchen, shower ( 2 - 3 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.

Bairin-an (Plum Grove) 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.

Bairin-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 a nice shower, 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.

Bairin-an is at the foot of Kiyomizu Temple, which has been designated a World Cultural Heritage, and is very convenient for visiting by walking distance many others famous temples, shrines, downtown, and Gion, the most famous Geisha district!

Enjoy Kyoto and the distinctive features of the local townhomes by staying in a real Machiya, feeling the natural way of living and the change of seasons which distinguishes Kyoto 's 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 garden 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 17th 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

In less than 5 minutes from Bairin-an there are two 24hours convenient stores, a 24h supermarket, post office, bank, cafes, restaurants.

A 15 minutes walk will take you to the riverside of the Kamogawa. You can take a pleasant stroll along the river, or do shopping in the nearby Kawaramachi area convenient for 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 see a Geisha or Maiko on the way or from an appointment.

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

Enjoy just walking from Bairin-an!

Great Home-base for Kyoto Stay

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent a wonderful week in Kyoto staying at Bairin-an. The information provided in the listing was accurate both in terms of the great location and the condition of the property itself. The property is well maintained and clean. It was a pleasure staying in this traditional Japanese home. The location provides easy access to the Gion area and has excellent bus connections to other areas. The property manager, Roxana, was wonderfully helpful both before and after we arrived. Her local knowledge and recommendations were invaluable in our making the most of our time in Kyoto. Kyoto was the highlight of our one month in Japan and Bairin-an was a big part of that. I would not hesitate in recommending Bairin-an to any other traveller looking to spend time in Kyoto.

Staying here was one of the highlights of our trip!

  • 5 of 5
Staying in Kyo Machiya Miyabi - Bairin-an, in the Higashiyama was a highlight of Kyoto and of our whole trip. It made us feel like we were a part of the area and gave us a feeling for old world Japan, that we would not have had just visiting temples and walking around Gion. Roxana is super friendly and helpful, we ran into her a couple of times and it was great to hear her tips and insights, there were quite a few things that were not in the guide books that we would have not known about and would have missed otherwise. Thanks Roxana! We hope to see you again!

Wonderful traditional home in Kyoto

  • 5 of 5
This lovely Japanese machiya surpassed our expectations in every way. Traditionally decorated yet fitted out with the most modern amenities - it was a joy stay there. Situated at the foot of Kiyomizudera, the location was very convenient for sightseeing, with other places easy to reach. Shops and restaurants were plentiful and within a few minutes of the house. The house was spotlessly clean and well-maintained. The host, Roxana, was exceptional. She was always on hand to help with suggestions and practical things like booking taxis. She couldn't have been kinder to us - it was a pleasure to meet her and made our trip even better.

Fantastic location

  • 4 of 5
Bairin-an is a well appointed traditional house with new, modern facilities, located within minute's walk to major tourist attractions like Kiyomizudera temple, Kodaji temple and Yasaka Shrine. Bus stop was just a few steps away so we were able to reach the train station and other attractions like the Ginkakuji temple in north Kyoto easily.

The futons were extremely comfortable and gave us a good night's rest after a full day of sightseeing.

The lovely machiya manager, Roxana, was extremely helpful, giving us detailed instructions of how to get to Bairin-an and access to the tourist attractions nearby. All details were looked into to ensure we had an enjoyable stay. Little touches like preparing an ikebana floral piece and helping us to make reservations at several superb restaurants, made our stay a memorable one.
