Reinvigorating the history of Kyoto style latticework and inner garden etc. gazing up, one can see the joists that were put over a century ago.

A self-contained kitchen with all the conveniences and facilities found in a modern home, we invite you to use these facilities and more during your stay. Stop by the nearby “shoutengai” (a long street lined with various markets and stores) to pick up some locally grown vegetables, and experience life as a local as you cook a delicious meal.


Dark, wooden fixtures decorate the washroom and bath area to perfectly complement the natural greenery of the “tsuboniwa” garden, which can be seen through the window. Soak in a relaxing bath, and look out towards this point of calm and beauty.

2 toilet areas located on the 1st floor.


The living room features a tea table created by Kyoto craftsmen, with full moon amber original zabuton cushion range. It's the perfect spot to sit back, relax and enjoy the view of the inner garden. The garden itself enjoys changing its outlook through the seasons of Kyoto, and at night it turns into a refined relaxing space with a calm lighting.

The noren curtains weren't attached. I was there for only a short while, but with Sanjūsangen-dō and Tōfuku-ji etc. all within walking distance, I think one can spend time here leisurely. The bath was a little on the smaller side. + More
