We stayed here in January for three nights and could not have been happier. It was very cold in Kyoto and the accommodation is simple but well heated in the rooms and the futons were comfortable. The location and the history of the building is what makes this place. We could walk to many of the sites as well as... More

We stayed 4 nights at Kiyomizu tenseian. Its a really nice apartment (pretty big, 4 rooms/2 bedroom and a bathroom) close to the goyozaka bus stop (1 min walking) and to all temples in higashiyama and gion (all easily accessible walking). Takushi is for sure the best host you can find. He gave us a lot of amazing informations about... More

Stayed in this house located within the park a while ago but the good memories are still there. Amazing location in the park which was not difficult to navigate, beautiful, spacious house that was not cold in early spring with abundance of heaters and blankets, good value for money and a friendly host with extremely useful advice on good places...

My wife and I sent 11 nights in this lovely old house on the edge of Muruyama Park and enjoyed it thoroughly. It is quiet, comfortable, conveniently located (a short walk to Gion and 10 minutes through the park to Shijo dori the main shopping street) and we had the whole house to ourselves. We were here in mid November... More

I've been lucky enough to stay in some wonderful places over my life, and this is without doubt one of the best. It's like walking back in history as you walk through the door. Old houses are rare in Japan, and this feels old as soon as you walk in. The wear shows in places, so if you're looking for... More

Amazing place to stay! We stayed here for 5 days and it was such a special part of our Kyoto experience. The ryokan is actually a 100 year old house, that we were fortunate enough to have to ourselves. The house is absolutely beautiful and full of character - we felt at home there right away. The location is towards... More

My partner and I have been wanting to go back to Kyoto and stay at Kiyomizu Tenseian again after we first visited in 2011 and we finally got the opportunity in mid-October. We were lucky enough to be able to stay three nights at Kiyomizu Tenseian apartment and one night at Salon Haraguchi Tenseian. Kiyomizu Tenseian is conveniently located, just... More

I had the best time at Haraguchi Tenseian!! I was actually there in July 2013 and had the entire place to myself. The owner is a fascinating and generous guy who even drove me to one of the sights on my first day. The location in Maruyama Park is convenient and yet also feels like a world away from the... More

We are a couple travelling with a 1 year old baby and have spent five days in Kyoto. This is a small and confortable japanese apartment which is located in a calm neighborhood. Mr takushi very kindly guided us to some temples and gave us helpful instructions. We really felt at home at Kiyomizu Tenseian, arigato!
