    Property description
    Rental Home – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 4
    The renovation of Senraku House located in downtown Kyoto was completed in Spring 2011. Now, modern convenience has been added to its history of the house.

    This small Traditional Japanese House is on a quiet lane-way in a very convenient area in Kyoto: 24HR convenience stores, 24HR supermarket, cafés, bakeries, IZAKAYA, restaurants, banks, department-stores, drug stores, a rent-a-cycle (bicycle-rental) shop, a rent-a-car office, Sento (a type of traditional Japanese communal bath house), hospital, and everything you need are close by.

    Nijo Castle, Nishiki Market, and Shinkyogoku Shopping Arcade are within a short walking distance, and from the train station which is less than 10 minute walk away from the house, you can visit and see numerous historic sites in Kyoto: such as Kinkakuji (...

All of our communications with Reiko and Thomas before we arrived were excellent. We were particularly grateful for their recommendation of a shuttle service from the airport. We arrived late and were... more
