    Property description
    Holiday Rental House – 
    2 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 6
    A traditional Japanese townhouse that lies in the Higashiyama area where many of Kyoto`s cultural heritage sites remain. The house is situated in an ideal location with easy access to popular sightseeing spots such as Gion, Kiyomizu-dera Temple, Sanjusangen-do, Fushimi-Inari Taisha, and is just one station away from Kyoto station. This beautifully renovated property can accommodate up to 6 people.

5 of us visited Kyoto and spent 4 nights in this machiya. We opted for this local accommodation because we wanted a place where the 5 of us can be together and didn't want to be pigeon-holed into your typical hotel room.

A hotel would've required two or more rooms which we didn't want and it would've been much more expensive. The Townhouse was very clean and had... more
