Jizo is the guardian of travellers and An means cottage or 'quiet retreat', hence travellers cottage.

Jizo-An is located in an alleyway of only 5 houses ensuring that the house is completely quiet yet allowing immediate access to the middle of Kyoto’s historical Higashiyama district. Guests can return, relax, have a rest, shower, sleep, change clothes or have a cup of tea while still remaining in the historical area. The house is small, one bedroom upstairs, kitchen/lounge downstairs. It has been lovingly restored in the traditional style of an old Kyoto Teahouse.

The house is actually more beautiful than the photos can show.

Jizo-an is furnished...

My daughter and I stayed 5 nights in Machiya Jizo-an. We feld very comfortable. It was cosy and it was provided with everything you need.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed 6 January 2016 for a stay in October 2014

We stayed here in November 2013... a good apartment in a handy location, a short safe walk to the best parts of Kyoto. It's a tight fit, even for two people, but cute and you feel like a local. We hope to be back soon.
