Murasakino Guesthouse is a cozy guesthouse located just north of central Kyoto. The house itself is over 85 years old and is build in the old traditional style of Machiya house; wooden frame and pillars supporting bamboo and earthen walls. We have taken great care to preserve the authentic old style atmosphere while at the same time providing modern day comforts such as western style toilet and modern bathing facility. It is our hope that Murasakino Guesthouse will be your home away from home.

About the neighborhood
Murasakino Guesthouse is located in a quiet residential area but there is a shopping street close by with many different kind of shops. There are also many different kind of restaurants within easy walking distance. This used to be an commercial district in the old days and you can still find small businesses and workshops as you wander around (for example there is a small tatami workshop just south of the guesthouse were you can catch a glimpse of Japanese craftsmanship). Not to mention many temples and shrines off the beaten path.
