100-year old Kyoto townhouse, fully renovated (Oct 2015). Run of house. Perfect for:
- Honeymoon couple
- People wanting to self-cater (fully equipped kitchen)
- People wanting an extended stay in Kyoto
- Long stay? Ask us about special rates!

The space
Our vision for the Kitano House covers three main areas:

Firstly the idea is to preserve as many of these important machiya to
maintain the special atmosphere and environment that is Kyoto.

Secondly we have curated an interesting and eclectic set of
artisanal products, such as paintings/prints by local artists,
lacquered glassware, ceramic art, etc. that are part of the Kitano
House furnishings. These craftspeople are all people that my wife and I have
met during her time in Kyoto and should our guests wish to meet these
artisans (please note - absolutely *no* sales/obligation to buy) to
discuss their work, process and approach to their craft. it is
something we can set up with pleasure.

There are two excellent multi-gear folding bicycles that are for the
use of house guests.

We feel that Kitano House is ideal for:
- A couple wanting something other than a hotel/ryokan experience in Kyoto
- The single traveller wanting their own space
- Honeymoon couple
- People wanting to self-cater with a fully equipped kitchen
- People looking for an extended stay in Kyoto
- Parents with small kids
