    Tucked away in a quiet neighborhood, on a small cobble stone lane in the heart of the city, you will find your home away from home. This beautifully restored Machiya retains its old world charm and provides insight into the old way of life in Japan.

    It is centrally located for sightseeing, with many of Kyoto's famous temples and shrines, shopping, dining and entertainment districts close-by. There are lots of restaurants, supermarkets and shops within walking distance. You can walk to Gion in about 20 minutes. The Shijo station for the Karasuma subway line is a 10 minute walk away, while the Karasuma station for the Hankyu Kyoto subway line is also a 10 minute walk.

For those looking for a unique way to experience Japan we highly recommend staying at Maeniiya. From the moment we arrived we felt comfortable. It is clean and well equipped. We appreciated the washer/dryer and Japanese style bath. Included were also shampoo, body soap, detergent for laundry, tin foil, etc. These little additions were well appreciated. We ate in most... more

Totally honest description of the house and accommodation ( so Japanese, people here are so trustworthy ) about ten minutes walk to Shijo subway station but only moments from bus number 50 from Kyoto JR station. Kyoto is a big city and you have to take a bus to get anywhere and this is a good base. Only ten or... more

The WiFi was a great asset and the Air Conditioning was an added bonus as... more
