Kyoto, Kyoto Prefecture, Kinki
The renovation of Senraku House located in downtown Kyoto was completed in Spring 2011. Now, modern convenience has been added to its history of the house.

This small Traditional Japanese House is on a quiet lane-way in a very convenient area in Kyoto: 24HR convenience stores, 24HR supermarket, cafés, bakeries, IZAKAYA, restaurants, banks, department-stores, drug stores, a rent-a-cycle (bicycle-rental) shop, a rent-a-car office, Sento (a type of traditional Japanese communal bath house), hospital, and everything you need are close by.

I was in Japan 3 1/2 weeks staying at a combination of ryokans and hotels. The stay at this house was one of our favorites and the most memorable. The owner met us upon arrival to orient and show us around. She also arranged taxis and took calls from drivers when they had difficulty finding the house. It turned out...

Management response:

Thank you for the excellent review of Senraku. It is all about location and Senraku is located conveniently in Kyoto. We have many compliments about the bedding (Japanese futon). Just to let you know there are the same ones used at top ryokans in Kyoto. Even a Michelin stared ryokan is rumored to have used the same ones.
