SHIKOKU-AN
Situated in the heart of Kyoto is Shikoku-an, a stylish and innovative machiya accommodation. Located on a serene backstreet near the Takasegawa River, one of the most popular cherry blossom spots in Kyoto, you will also find yourself to be a short walk away from the famous Gion area. On the other side of this Machiya, you will find Kyoto's most popular shopping centers on the corner of Kawaramachi and Shijo streets and the exciting Nishiki food market. This property can accommodate up to 4 guests.

Our 4th trip to Kyoto but first time renting a machiya instead of a hotel room. It was a much more relaxing experience. The proximity to the cherry blossoms (our reason for this trip) made it an ideal location. The Takasegawa river (canal) was nearby and was in full bloom. It is lit up at nights so we were able...
