Small cosy nest in a bewitching and timeless district, Gion house warmly welcomes you to its typically Japanese interior. Aroma of tatami mats and subdued lighting will make you calm and relaxed to enjoy an unforgettable stay.
This small house on a single level is ideal for a young couple wishing to eat and sleep Japanese style in the most prestigious district of the city, Gion.
You can prepare your meals in the kitchen corner and comfortably eat them seated on the zabuton, Japanese cushion, in the lounge covered with tatami.
A tokonoma, an area where the Japanese have art objects and a flower arrangement, invites you to give a personal touch to the living room.
The Japanese bedroom will enchant you with its relaxing charms: aroma of tatamis, gentle lighting and the cosy comfort of futons.

It was spotless and the living area looked a bit like the photo but the entrance was dowdy and the kitchen and bathroom original 1960's. The linen was old - my sheets had... more

Our family of four stayed in this small house located down a very small alley in Kyoto. Our house angel, Daniel Auguste, came to meet us having sent us a map of the place and spoken to our taxi driver to obtain exact location. He showed us everything, how to use things and where to put rubbish. House was clean... more

The tatami mats, traditional futon, great lighting and heating, all made this a cozy, comfy, exciting place to stay. It was just perfect for the two of us. The district was great,... more
