Near to a subway station, the Azukiya B & B is the perfect base for Kyoto. And Chieko the perfect host! We (2 adults and 2 teens) enjoyed our stay. The comfortable beds provided a restful sleep and Chiekos breakfast enough energy to discover Kyoto. Thank you very much for a wonderful stay.

Chieko was a delight and extremely helpful. Azukiya is a fantastic authentic Japanese guesthouse. We stayed in the upstairs room and it was just lovely. The food that Chieko prepared was divine and up there with the best food we tried in Japan. Fantastic place to stay in Kyoto, we will definitely stay there next time we come to Japan.

We had a very nice stay at (Guesthouse) Azukiya, in particular thanks to Chieko-san who was an excellent host. She made us feel very welcome and took very good care of us during our stay.

Could not be more pleased with our decision to stay at Azukiya! The house is beautiful, clean and comfortable. Chieko was an amazing host and is incredibly kind.

This small, traditional Ryokan is located in an old house and full of nice little details. Chieko the very friendly and cheerful owner put a lot of effort and taste in the house to make a gem out of it. Great location; walking distance to the eastern tempels and Kodai-ji. The Metro is close for other sights. If you are...

My husband and I had a phenomenal four-night stay at Azukiya. Great location, right next to the Keage metro and Philosopher's Walk. Beautiful room in a lovely renovated traditional Japanese house, very nice western-style bathroom, and fantastic amenities (we had coffee/tea every morning in our room's sitting area). Breakfast was wonderful - alternated from Japanese to Western style. The best...

Staying in City Center

Neighborhood Profile
City Center
No district of Kyoto is quite as representative of its blended nature as the City Center. By day, the covered shopping arcades along Kawaramachi and Shijo Street bring deal hunters and fashionistas out in droves to peruse the clothing, accessories, gifts, and home goods offerings. When it grows dark, the City Center is a hip spot for nightlife, alive with bars and clubs. A trendy culinary scene and an abundance of local watering holes give the Center its youthful vibrancy. In contrast, the quieter areas of the City Center seem a world away, shielded from noise by the foliage of the public gardens and zen spaces surrounding the area's shrines, castles, and the Imperial Palace. These ancient and sacred spots are seamlessly folded into the scenery, providing a respite from the energy of the city, but close enough to put you directly back onto the pulse of the city when you're ready.
