Ideally located in the heart of Gion, Azuki-an is an entire traditional Japanese-style townhouse that you are able to rent out for yourself. Fitted with chic décor inspired by Japanese aesthetics, this property provides all necessities needed to make your stay comfortable.
The traditional exterior of the house has the aesthetic of “wabi-sabi” (the art of finding beauty and pathos in simplicity and imperfection). Surrounded by the history and elegance of Kyoto, this machiya blends well with the surrounding traditional townscape.

About the neighbourhood
The property is a 5-minute walk from both the Gion-shijo and Kawaracho subway stations, and JR Kyoto Station is a 15-minute bus ride away. Kennin-ji Temple and Yasaka Shrine is a short 5-minute walk, while a 10-minute walk can reach the famous Kiyomizu-dera Temple.
Getting around
To the East is Gion --the beautiful Hanamachi or Geiko & Maiko street where the traditional architecture shows fascinating original beauty of Kyoto. To the West is the Kamogawa river and Takasegawa river--- a natural beauty symbolic of Kyoto. To the South is the Kenninji temple at which tourists are fascinated by national treasures and Japanese gardens. To the North is Ponto-cho where there are a remarkable number of machiya townhouses tightly packed beside an alley with the width of approximately 1 meter.

Come and experience all of these wonderful sightseeing attractions for yourself. Your stay at this machiya will no doubt make your visit to Kyoto even more memorable. We hope you choose to stay at this exquisitely restored Machiya town
