Located at the foot of Kiyomizu Temple, my house 'Kiyomizu Shukuba' is a 90 year-old building. The building follows the original, traditional Kyoto-style residence architecture, with a living area on the second floor (Kiyomizu Shukuba), and a small restaurant on the first floor (Kiyomizu Tateba). Shukuba is an Edo-period word the Japanese used to refer to places to spend the night along the Gokaido roads, which once connected Edo (now called Tokyo) to the outer provinces. It relays our desire to have our guests relax and enjoy the culture, history and craftsmanship of traditional Japan. The building was renovated to honor the following two points: 1.Introducing the new while preserving the old. / 2. Emphasizing craftsmanship.

Shukuba is an Edo-period word the Japanese used to refer to places to spend the night along the Gokaido roads, which once connected Edo (now called Tokyo) to the outer provinces. It relays our desire to have our guests relax and enjoy the culture, history and craftsmanship of traditional Japan. The building was renovated to honor the following two points: 1.Introducing the new while preserving the old. / 2. Emphasizing craftsmanship. Kiyomizu Shukuba preserves as many old features as possible while carefully introducing new ones. This is also true for fixtures. When possible, old original fixtures are kept and used. For new fixtures, only hand-crafted ones are used. All of Kiyomizu Shukuba’s walls are covered with Japanese traditional craft wallpaper, 'Tosa Washi'. Tosa Washi is hand-crafted, and has been produced for more than a thousand years using Japanese traditional style. Tosa Washi is also known as “the breathing paper” due to its moisture regulating qualities, which keeps rooms warmer during winter, and cooler during summer. You are welcome to touch and feel the elegance of the traditional Japanese residence and craftsmanship in every detail including fixtures and wallpaper. Since the owner will be running the casual restaurant on the first floor, please drop by anytime during opening hours. The casual restaurant in the first floor is open until early evening, so guests can be guaranteed comfortable, quiet nights. In case of emergency, the owner lives close by so I will reachable at hours when the casual dining area is closed. The concept behind Kiyomizu Shukuba is to provide guest the experience of not just traveling, but “living” in Kyoto. Our base rates are in Japanese Yen, and US$ rates shown are approximate conversions for reference only. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 京都市指令保保医第929号More

About the neighborhood
Kiyomizu Shukuba is well located on a quiet street in the Higashiyama-ward neighborhood, near some of Kyoto’s most famous temples and other historic landmarks. We are at the foot of the Kiyomizu Temple, a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage site that was established by Enchin over a thousand years ago. In addition to Kiyomizu temple, we are a 10-minute walk from other beautiful temples and shrines including: Sannenzaka, Kennin-ji Temple, Yasaka Shrine, Kodai-ji Temple, Rokuharamitsu-ji Temple, Sanjusangendo Temple and Chion Temple. Gion, known for its tradition of geiko (as geisha are referred to in Kyoto), old style tea houses and cobblestone streets is also just a walk away. The Kyoto National Museum is also nearby. The neighbourhood is perfect for wandering and relaxed strolls...
