Jizo is the guardian of travellers and An means cottage or 'quiet retreat', hence travellers cottage.

Jizo-An is located in an alleyway of only 5 houses ensuring that the house is completely quiet yet allowing immediate access to the middle of Kyoto’s historical Higashiyama district. Guests can return, relax, have a rest, shower, sleep, change clothes or have a cup of tea while still remaining in the historical area. The house is small, one bedroom upstairs, kitchen/lounge downstairs. It has been lovingly restored in the traditional style of an old Kyoto Teahouse.

The house is actually more beautiful than the photos can show.

Jizo-an is furnished...

Jizo-an is an intimate machiya that is perfect for solo travelers or couples, complete with a kitchen, bath, shower, and washer/tumble dryer. Its location is in city center, but tucked away down a small residential alley, so nights are quiet and sightseeing locations are within walking distance.

The house was in a great location: 5 minute walk from a subway station; a block away from a grocery store; across the street from a Hawaiian themed café with Kona coffee; in a quiet neighborhood. The house has air conditioning in the kitchen and the bedroom... more
