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 stayed at both Mr Haraguchi guest house this early september. One is a big beautiful country house in traditional japanese style, 15 minutes walking to town center surrounded by nature in a magic atmosphere. The other is a nice and cozy apartment just upstairs from Mr Haraguchi pottery studio (apparently he's a famous artist with pieces exposed all over... 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!

Myself, wife and daughter stayed for the second time this August in Haraguchi san no Kyomizu Tenseian. It's becoming our home away from home in Kyoto. It's located on the Eastern side of Kyoto near main drags, but far enough off of them that you cannot hear them. It is in a very typical Kyoto neighborhood walking distance to pretty... More

We spent 6 nights in this amazing home, using it as a base to visit nearby Nara and Osaka. The location is perfect, in Gion where you will find much of what you come to Kyoto for. This is a 100 year old traditional Japanese home. I can’t think of a better place to stay. The experience was enhanced by... More
