    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    The Gion House has opened on October 2011, and a traditional Japanese 'machiya' is located smack in the center of Gion. The Gion House was designated Gion historic district building by Kyoto City Government. The Gion House was built in 1892, and was completely restored under the supervision of Kyoto City Government, and it was stand up for historical Gion principle. It is rented an entire house. Our quests may come and go freely, using the house as their own.

    The restoration was a labor of love, requiring the participation of artisans specializing in traditional carpentry Kyoto style techniques, and using natural materials in all areas both inside and out. Great efforts were made to recreate an atmosphere, which will allow guests to experience the traditional way of living.

    Additional Location Information
    Long ago, this place was in oldest Zen Temple ''Kenninji'' till EDO period. After the Meiji Restoration in 1868. Kenninji was ordered to shrink the size by the government. Geisha association came in to there, and started as Gion district. It has been as image of Gion since at that time by them. For real Gion district was inside the Kenninji temple grounds. We felt that we have to be bound in duty to suggestion both real ''Gion'' and ''Machiya'' as native Kyoto. That's why we started to rent ''Machiya'' in here. Every nights our guests are possible to find ''Geisya'' at just front of our the Gion House.

... I agree with the photos and descriptions of the house - amazing reno, facilities and location but there are four questions, which really should be considered before choosing this for your home away from home: (1) Are you a moderate to light sleeper? The house is located on a busy back road and only two houses from a corner... more
