Rental Home /
3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 7
Rent a whole Kyoto traditional townhouse by the day for up to 7 people. Unlike a Ryokan there are no rules like having to be back by a certain time of night. Instead, enjoy the space and freedom of having an entire house to yourself.

Komachiya is a thoroughly authentic Kyoto-style house, with traditional and antique effects, wood, plaster and tatami interior, 2-storeys with large tatami sleeping and living rooms, full-facililty kitchen, separate bathroom and toilets, exquisite exterior garden.

Komachiya is located inside a local shopping arcade. Buy ingredients just outside your front door, then bring them home and throw them in a nabe hotpot. World famous Gion area, Kiyomizudera and Nanzenji are all within easy walking distance. For sightseeing, nightlife, restaurants and shopping, you will not find a better location!

Our party of 5 adults stayed comfortably in this Japanese style home and all the amenities made staying here feel like a luxury :) We loved coming home to this place & felt very safe. Despite being in a small market place... more

We stayed in Komachiya in July 2015 for 4 nights. It is in an excellent location, in Gion ,close to Higashiyama station. Bus stops are just outside .

The house was fully self-contained with ample towels, toiletries and bedding provided.
