FUJITAYA is a guesthouse like your home away home in Kyoto, Japan. We are 10 min walk from JR Tambaguchi Station where is only 1 stop from JR Kyoto station. We have easy access to Kyoto city central by bus, bike and train and even go on by foot. We would be happy if you could relax and enjoy Kyoto by staying at FUJITAYA experiencing through everyday life of Kyoto, our neighbors and events which we plan weekly. We usually have parties and gatherings in terms of making good friendships among guests, e.g. a Sake tasting party, a Takoyaki making party, Sushi rolling party and other Japanese cultural events. And also, we are willing to offer you some ideas to explore in the mountain area, if you wish to enjoy a nature day-trip in countryside of Kyoto. We make your stay more enjoyable at FUJITAYA Kyoto with us.

Shimogyo-ku is centered around the busy train hub, Kyoto Station. A nexus for commerce, shopping, dining, and hotels, the Shimogyo-ku area is infused with tourists and local business travelers, making it a competitive location for ever-new commercial structures. The shops and cafes here are chic and trendy, as a result, with many recognizable chains. Commuters flood the Shimogyo-ku area twice a day, and with Kyoto Station itself being a modern mega-complex and an architectural marvel, this neighborhood is one of the most contemporary and energetic areas that the city has to offer. Buildings here look futuristic, and huge department stores, shopping arcades, and public meeting spaces provide every possible convenience. It is also nearly the only place in Kyoto where rooftop dining and socializing is available, completing its modern tone.

Staying in Fujitaya feels like staying at home, although you're away from home. Room was cozy, living room and kitchen were homy, staff was friendly & helpful. Location not far from main street, where you can get buses that take you to most tourist destinations.

Our stay started with a very warm welcome. It is a nice atmosphere and all support we needed was provided. This place also attracted many nice travellers so we had a nice evening talking and eating snacks together. Great team!
