Reviewed 26 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Service was efficient and helpful. The property is neat, comfortable and has everything you need for a short stay in Kyoto. The location is pretty fabulous- walking distance to the Higashiyama subway, buses, lots of good restaurants, significant temples, the Heian Shrine, and good museums. Amenities are good. We loved the bath, and having washing facilities is a bonus. We...

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...

Reviewed 15 January 2015 for a stay in October 2014

My wife and I stayed in the cottage for two weeks during our visit to Kyoto. As advertised, the cottage is small, but it was obviously furnished by someone who knows how to live in a small place--everything needed is there and nothing not needed is there. It's on a quiet residential ally in a lovely neighborhood that is within...

About the neighbourhood
Shirakawa is located 2 mins from the main historical Nene's Path. The traditional Geisha district of Gion is 4 min walk along the edge of the Shirakawa Stream. Also the upmarket restaurant area of Pontocho along the banks of the Kamagawa River is an easy stroll. This whole area is flat and an easy walk and as with all Kyoto is quiet and perfectly safe. Fifteen minutes walk east are the Higashiyama mountains that have superb hiking.

The area around the house has many interesting shops and is steeped in Kyoto history. The highlights of Kyoto; Heian Jinju, Kyoto Museum, Nanzenji, Kodaiji and Chion-in Temples, Maruyama Park, Philosophers Path and many more are an easy stroll from Shirakawa Cottage. There are many interesting cafes, antique shops and specialty shops nearby.
