Sanjusan Machiya has all the charms of a Japanese traditional townhouse: tatami mat rooms, sliding wooden doors, paper doors, wooden bathroom, all with luxurious modern facilities and comfort. The house has just been fully renovated.
The house has just been fully renovated with 2 Japanese tatami mat bedrooms (sleeping on futon) and 1 Western-style bedroom with two single beds. In the living dining area, we have a dining table with 6 chairs and a sofa. The house is also equipped with a fully automatic washing machine/dryer and 2 western style toilets which is very convenient for a larger group (spacious enough for 6 people).
As our guests, you will have access to everything the house has to offer.
We're always available for any help necessary for information, reservation, advice, etc. We love Kyoto and like to share our interest with our guests. We also have a dedicated web site (mykyotomachiya) full of information and pictures to enable our guests to fully explore and enjoy this wonderful city.
While not in the middle of Gion and the crowd, the house is very conveniently located near a number of interesting places. It is also not far from most of what Kyoto has to offer.
We are 1.7 km away from Kyoto station, near the Sanjusangendo temple, behind the Hyatt Regent hotel.
Two train stations (JR and Keihan) are located nearby. Bus stops are a mere few minutes away. And there are always taxi available around.
We have decorated the house with old traditional Japanese art crafts such as a Samurai armor, traditional wedding Kimono, Japanese dolls, Noh mask, protective Gods for the fire (Hotei-san), etc. for a more refined atmosphere. You'll experience the traditional way of living of the people of Kyoto and enjoy a unique cultural experience, with all the modern comfort you can wish for.
Note: From May on, minimum stay will be three days.
