The building is a traditional house called " Kyoto Machiya”.

The space

The building is a traditional house called " Kyoto Machiya”. We are using the building as an art gallery. Because there is a period wherein the building is not being used as an art gallery, we hope that people interested in Japanese culture, art and design would like to stay in this period at this machiya.

The room is on the second floor. It’s a pleasant space that looks over the “naka niwa” (a traditional garden characteristic to machiya).

I am now studying English. There have not been many opportunities for me to talk to people from abroad, so lets talk together over a nice bottle of sake!

I would like highly recommend Yoshinori beautiful Machiya house, very quiet, cosy and unique, located in a very charming area. Yoshinori and Iitaka , Shizuka, they all very kind, thoughtful and mindful to take care of my stay there. I had a pleasant time there and would like to come back for sure!

The house is just beautiful! Everything is as described but even more amazing. The conditions are quite simple but there is everything one might need plus the beautiful space. It's close to the subway, a bus stop and a couple of grocery stores. The staff and Yoshinori are very kind and helpful. I'd love to come back! Thank you Yoshinori & friends!

I had a great time during 3 night at Yoshinori's place.This is a very traditionnal house with basic furniture and accomodation but you feel so lucky to be able to live in one of these traditionnal japanese houses that you forget your everyday comfort. I haven't use the kitchen but I could have. The bathroom is also basic but clean and easy to use. The calm of the district, the small garden in the house make this place very relaxing. Except maybe the noise in the morning from the house next door I think.

It is a traditional shop house in historical style ,which was carefully reservated by the host. So if you are very concern about the comfortability, please choose other modern hotels . However for me who is very interesting with the Japanese old style ,here is the best choice. where can feel the real and old life of Kyoto. The gallery is using the big living room for some art activities down stair. And the guest room is on the 2nd floor, which is very quiet and private. There is a lovely Japanese courtyard with many plants between the guest room and living room,which provide the sunlight flowing down. The host is an university teacher and artist. who would hold some activities with many artists here. Everyone in the party is kind and friendly.I really enjoy the night of 暑気払い 。本当に ありがとう! Yoshinori san is very kind and with much patience,although has a little trouble with English.Hope he will improve it soon。 The house is 5 minutes to subway station 今出川 by walk,and 2 minutes for bus which could get to the 金阁寺\龙安寺\仁和寺 and only 15 minutes walking to imperial villa. All in all, here is not a place to get accommodation,but likes the home in Kyoto for you shortly. The best travel is not to be a traveller here I think !
