    Shirakawa Cottage - COTTAGE BY THE WHITE STREAM
    The 1957 classic 'Sayonara' with Marlon Brandon was filmed by Shirakawa Stream adjacent to Shirakawa Cottage, great views of the area in the 1950's.

    Shirakawa Cottage is a traditional Japanese Machiya (Townhouse) in an absolutely superb location. A little hideaway in a deep alleyway off the Shirakawa Stream, one of the loveliest areas in Kyoto This ensures that that the house is completely quiet yet allowing immediate access to the middle of Kyoto’s historical Higashiyama (Eastern Mountains) district.

    This means that you can drop in, have a rest, a sleep, shower, change clothes or have a cup of tea and still be in the middle of the historical area....

shirikawa is a delightful cottage, just right for a base in kyoto if you're interested in temples, gardens and local experience - train station nearby, the charming shirikawa canal at the end of the lane, a brief walk into the gion district and plenty of choices for eating and drinking... and a great bathtub for easing those weary muscles after... more

We stayed in two cottages owned by the same couple. Both were great. This had the more beautiful location, right near the Shirakawa stream and in a lovely neighborhood near everything we wanted. This was a wonderful place to stay--all the modern conveniences. Don't plan on cooking much, but you'll be quite comfortable here. more

I chose to stay at the cottage because I wanted something different than the standard hotel room. It was for a three-day sightseeing tour, my first visit to Kyoto. The cottage was exactly as described on the Internet. Directions to it came via email a few days before my arrival, and the directions were clear enough that I had no... more
