This is a wonderful house. well appointed and great outlook.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Wonderful house and great views. Close to town but still felt very local and quiet. There's some construction right outside which was a little noisy but intermittent and only sometimes between 10-4, so didn't impact our stay significantly. Highly recommend this place - thanks Hidei!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

We had a party of five adults and a baby stay at the house for just over a week. The house is everything that everyone else has said. It is in a beautiful, quiet but central location and would be perfect with four additions, especially for people enjoying longer stays and with larger parties;

1 A couple of comfortable chairs to read in because when the living area is being used as a bedroom the sofa is unavailable. I would have loved to have had a comfy chair or two on the balcony rather that having to take the dining chairs out.

2 A full length mirror downstairs.

3 Light Summer weight blankets.

4 A proper sink in the downstairs toilet so that everyone isn't having to use the bathroom upstairs.

Wonderful apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 adults stayed here during the first week of May and it was the perfect spot for our visit to Kyoto. Situated in a quiet neighborhood with easy walking access to downtown and Gion district. The apartment was well equipped for meals and relaxation. Very satisfied.

We've stayed at many vacation rentals over the last decade and simply loved this home for lots of reasons- 1st is the location cannot be beat! Heart of Gion and easy access to restaurants, sites and world class shopping. 2nd- so central and yet so quiet and serene- clean and nicely appointed. 3rd- Kyoto in general is a must stop for Anyone travelling to Japan.

Takasegawa Suites.....Great place to stay and enjoy Kyoto with all it has to offer.

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic place to stay, very clean, well equiped, lovely comfortable beds, every thing you could wish for in a rental property. We overlooked the Takasegawa River while having our breakfast & morning tea, very restful & beautiful. We stayed for 6 nights at Takasegawa Suites and wished we had stayed longer. Great place to stay, easy to get around the Gion area, walking distance to all the great local restaurants. The owner, Hidei, is the perfect host, although he's not at the property he's only a phone call away if needed. He book some fantastic restaurants for us especially the one where we celebrated our 35th Wedding Anniversary. Thankyou so much Hidei for everything.

Can highly recommend Takasegawa Suites, we've been visiting the Gion in Kyoto every year for the past 11 years and this would have to be our the most relaxing, enjoyable stay we've had. It's a place we will return too.

Thanks again Hidei.

À wonderful property

  • 5 of 5

We had a truly delightful stay in Kyoto. Takasegawa suites is a very nice property, comfortable, well equipped and very clean. We appreciated its location in a charming historical area, overlooking Takase river and cherry trees all along, surrounded by local good restaurants and close to Gion.

Many thanks to Hidei who made things easy and his guests feel at home : thoughtful sweets, map with highlighted Kyoto attractions and best places to visit , answering to any wishes. He even proposed a guided walking tour .

We recommend your home to all our friends and relatives and hope to be back soon in Kyoto during cherry blossom season : it should be superb !

Takasegawa Suites is located on the Takase River in one of the most beautiful parts of town. The basic concept of Takasegawa Suites was to create a luxurious, yet stylish home for you to enjoy while you are in Kyoto. Traveling should be about the place but why shouldn't you be able to enjoy the place your staying at too. Takasegawa Suites is in the heart of town, so when you wake up and go for breakfast or lunch or pick up some nice trinkets at the nearby shop or market, you can also pop back in to your home to drop off something or pick up something that you might've forgotten or even just to sit down before you head out to your next mini adventure.

Takasegawa suites has an amazing balcony where you can spend hours at hanging out with friends, having a nice glass of wine or just chilling and doing some people watching.

The rooms are adequately spacious, the appliances are all state of the art, the kitchen is beyond functional, the TV will certainly meet your needs and the high speed internet will keep you connected to the world. You will have all of the creature comforts inside this 100 meters squared property.

During your stay in Kyoto, if you need any help, advice or have any questions, you may contact us anytime.

Kyoto is a very unique city filled with culture and charm. It is uniquely modern yet bound by the unwritten rules and is filled with traditional culture.

Depending on the time of year, you can see all sorts of amazing festivals from serenely solemn to wildly festive. The Gion Festival, one of Japan's 3 biggest festivals and a Unesco World cultural event, spans the whole month of July. This festival has continued in Kyoto for over 1000 years and draws people from all over Japan to witness its beauty and awe inspiring tradition.

Kyoto's is filled with markets that occur every month. You can find beautiful old Kimonos (sometimes new), Obi (kimono belts), gorgeous Japanese artifacts and sometimes swords. These temple and street markets are fun-filled and lively. They are great for strolling through and also a good chance to chat with the locals.

The people of Kyoto are a tad shy but once you get to know them or they get used to you, they are sweeter than your own grandparents.

If and when you do come to Kyoto, come here with an open mind and a big heart. You're going to walk away with treasures and memories that will be bringing you back for more.

Welcome to Takasegawa Suites and welcome to the most amazing city in Japan and possibly the world - welcome to Kyoto!!!
