    Shirakawa Cottage - COTTAGE BY THE WHITE STREAM
    The 1957 classic 'Sayonara' with Marlon Brandon was filmed by Shirakawa Stream adjacent to Shirakawa Cottage, great views of the area in the 1950's.

    Shirakawa Cottage is a traditional Japanese Machiya (Townhouse) in an absolutely superb location. A little hideaway in a deep alleyway off the Shirakawa Stream, one of the loveliest areas in Kyoto This ensures that that the house is completely quiet yet allowing immediate access to the middle of Kyoto's historical Higashiyama (Eastern Mountains) district.

    This means that you can drop in, have a rest, a sleep, shower, change clothes or have a cup of tea and still be in the middle of the historical ar...

4 of 5 stars Reviewed 22 March 2015 for a stay in March 2015

We stayed a second time in two years at Shirakawa Cottage, this time in early March. Although it was cold and rainy outside, we stayed warm and cozy in the machiya, thanks to help of two space heaters (and the instant hot water of the shower!). The location of this accommodation is superb--close to the subway, bus stops, restaurants, and... more
