About the property

3 bedrooms, 1 full bathroom, 2 toilets, full kitchen, sleeps 7

Rent a whole Kyoto traditional townhouse by the day for up to 7 people. Unlike a Ryokan there are no rules like having to be back by a certain time of night. Instead, enjoy the space and freedom of having an entire house to yourself.

Komachiya is a thoroughly authentic Kyoto-style house, with traditional and antique effects, wood, plaster and tatami interior, 2-storeys with large tatami sleeping and living rooms, full-facililty kitchen, separate bathroom and toilets, exquisite exterior garden.

Komachiya is located inside a local shopping arcade. Buy ingredients just outside your front door, then bring them home and throw them in a nabe hotpot. World famous Gion area, Kiyomizudera and Nanzenji are all within easy walking distance. For sightseeing, nightlife, restaurants and shopping, you will not find a better location!

Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this machiya for 11 nights and loved it. It was next to a subway and there was a bus stop around the corner. We could walk to countless temples from our apartment and the Gion district was less than a 10 minute walk. The ceilings were low, but we got used to that. There was aircon in all of the rooms. The kitchen was well equipped and the place was very clean. Our family of five enjoyed our stay. Two friends stayed with us for part of our stay and there was ample room for all seven of us. There were three bedrooms upstairs and we used the loungeroom downstairs for another room which could be fully closed off. It was handy having a toilet upstairs too. Masae provided us with lots of information about public transport and things to do. We would love to stay again.

Our Family of 5 Adults Loved Komachiya!

  • 5 of 5

Great location and all the amenities we needed. It was a wonderful experience to be in a traditional home. We were really impressed with how quiet it was at night. It was easy to walk to many beautiful locations and restaurants and grocery stores were nearby. The host was very helpful and we left our bags earlier in the day we checked in. It was very clean and exactly as described. We would love to stay there again!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here 5 nights with my mother. It's a big house so we had loads of space and so convenient for everything in Kyoto. The house is beautiful inside and because it's in a old shopping arcade it throws you right into the traditional Kyoto feeling. Will use it again when I have family over in Japan. 5 stars out of 5!
