Nodoka-an is adjacent to Shizuka-An, so its perfect for 2 couples of friends or family of 4 people.

Nodoka means Tranquil, Calm, relax; suggest the feeling we wanted to give the guests staying in the house. We hope it will be your home in Downtown Kyoto.

Though in an unbeatable location (Kyoto’s historical Higashiyama 'Eastern Mountains' district), easy walk to down town, sightseeing spots and well connected by Subway rail and buses, it is a quite hidden Machiya (Townhouse) which makes you smile when coming back after a day of traveling.

Located less than 5 min walk from Higashiyama station, this machiya is situated in a quiet residential area. There is a convenient store and McDonalds nearby, and is only two bus stops away from Shijo-dori, Gion. The unit is well maintained and clean.
