Our Space

Enjoy, relax and experience the Japanese way of life in a Machiya with a tatami tea room and futons. It has just been renovated in August 2015.

You’ll see a handy bicycle parked outside for your use for that quick dash to the convenience stores on either side.

You will be staying in a very clean, safe and exclusive neighbourhood. The Aquarium is an easy 5-min stroll away. Try a sumptuous buffet with farm fresh veggies just round the corner, a 5-min walk. Great value for an interesting spread at only ¥880 per person for lunch. UNESCO listed Nishihonganji is just 9 minutes away. Take buses to Gion, Kinkakuji – Golden Temple, downtown area, Nishiki market.

There are 2 bedrooms with traditional sliding doors and a balcony upstairs. The tatami tea room is downstairs, which opens out into the dining area and an open kitchen.

The tatami room is convertible into an extra bedroom for two adults. There’s Japanese green tea and coffee so you can have a quiet cuppa before you set off on your travel adventures for the day.

The Panasonic system kitchen looks out into a minimalist backyard. It is equipped with built-in cooker hob and exhaust, a fish grill underneath, and multi-menu controls. The microwave has oven and grilling functionalities as well. A fridge is there to keep your drinks cold.

The bath area is divided into dry and wet areas. The washer in the dry area, gives your laundry a Silver Ion anti-bacterial wash. A hair dryer is provided in the vanity drawer and toiletries in the cabinet.

The bathroom climate is programmable to recycle, cool, or heat air. Inside, you can preset your bath water settings at the bathtub control panel or at the other control panel in the kitchen. Also, you get to relax in a full-sized bathtub instead of the compacted versions. There is also an attached shower. You will be provided with linen, bath towels, hand towels, tea towel. So no worries about towels bulking up your luggage.

The toilet with automated bidet is separate.

We have a Ricoh Theta 360 camera available for hire at ¥3,000 for the whole duration of your stay. Please let us know in advance and we can bring it along when we meet.

“五星!! 房东是一对非常好的夫妇。第一天去时,我们迟到了很久,但他们依然非常耐心的等待我们。还带我们介绍了房间和周围好玩的地方。房间很大,很干净。里面的用品很齐全。房主还细心的给我们好吃的蛋糕和咖啡。真的是非常的美味。我好幸运这次路程能订到他们的民宿。这是我这次旅程中最美好的回忆之一。如果下次有机会再来,我一定会再来这里的。真的是非常感谢!”

SissySatisfied Customer, China
This is a really good vacation home in so many ways. The hosts have kept the place very well as it's very clean, neat and tidy. It's well equipped in terms of appliances. The futon is sturdy and comfortable. The interior design is nice and warm. The hosts are very friendly and helpful, sharing lots of information including good places to eat. I enjoyed my stay here very much. It was one of my lovely and memorable experiences in Kyoto. I often looked forward to going back after a long day out, a home away from home.
Wai Yee MakSatisfied Customer, Singapore
We had an awesome experience staying here! VERY clean, and there were a tonne of guides that were extremely useful. The Machiya has modern facilities but still holds a traditional feeling which we loved.The location of the Machiya is really good. The hosts themselves are very kind people with extremely quick communication and really good english so was a breeze to organise with them. Can't say enough good things about this place - but i highly recommend it for your stay.
