This townhouse in Kyoto was perfect for our stay. A little outside of the city center tucked away in a quiet neighborhood. Easy access to transportation, restaurants and all the sites in Kyoto. Highly recommended!! The bikes were awesome!!

About the neighborhood
I love the NE and NW areas of Kyoto as there are many interesting sights to see and there a lot of nature to enjoy. The NE has a little more to offer and is more easily accessible due to the Keihan and Eizan train lines. Some of my favorite places in the city like Shisen-do Gardens, Shugakuin Imperial Villa, The path of philosopy, Ginkakuji, Manshuin Temple Shimogamo Shrine, the Imperial Palace gardens and Takaragaike gardens can all be easily accessed from this house.
Getting around
TRAIN Luckily the NorthEast part of Kyoto is well serviced by bus and train. The Keihan and Eizan lines provide access to downtown/Gion area as well as many interesting spots that we love but which may not be on the typical tourist's itinerary. The house is 3 minutes walk from Moto Tanaka station on the Eizan line. TAXI Taxi's are cheap and plentiful in Kyoto and easy to get just about anywhere. Just walk 2min from the house to Mikage street and you won't have to wait long. BIKE This house comes with two bikes included free of charge to guests. We also have more available for rent so please let us know if you wish to reserve more. Exploring Kyoto by bike is highly recommended. The traffic is slow and everyone shares the sidewalk. Kyoto is
How to get there
The best way to find the house is to take a taxi from Kyoto station. Detailed directions (both in English for guest and in Japanese for taxi driver) will be provided after booking.
