Thank you for considering renting our historical property.
Meticulously restored to its former glory while being fitted with the most modern amenities, our house is one of the finest remaining examples of the particular Taisho era architecture of the 1920's.
Located 12-15 mn by foot from Kyoto station, 350m west of the UNESCO world heritage site of Toji temple and 3,000 Sqft in size, a total of 8 guests can be accommodated in 4 bedrooms, complemented by 2 bathrooms, 2 WC, 2 Japanese gardens.

The space
Meticulously restored to its former glory while being fitted with the most modern amenities, our townhouse is one fine remaining example of the particular Taisho era architecture of the 1920's.

This time greatly influenced the Japanese character in various fields as the country embraced various foreign influences. Japan looked most to Europe for source of inspirations and in the field of architecture, elements of western architecture and traditional Japanese designs were harmoniously combined. As such our house has two rooms with this particular “yokan” style.

When renovating the house, we were able to preserve mots of its original features with visitors very much feeling like steeping back in times when entering the premises.

Although fully functional for a modern lifestyle with IH stoves, dish washer, fridge and freezer...much of the kitchen was kept in its original condition. As such it represents a typical example of a kyomachiya (Kyoto townhouse) daitokoro (kitchen) with its sunken passageway, a well and antique tansu (Japanese traditional cabinetry) for you to enjoy.

The house is complemented by two beautiful Japanese gardens, both recently renovated by an award-winning Kyoto gardener.

The ground floor offers a luminous, spacious open-space from every part of which you can enjoy our gardens.

The sleeping quarters are on the second floor and are reached through a typical Japanese corridor, much of which was kept in its original condition.

All in all the compound comprises of:

One Western style bedrooms with a queen-size bed

One Western style bedrooms with two single size beds.

One Japanese style bedroom with 3 futon sets

One Japanese room with western low single beds Two bathrooms with shower space and bathtubs

Two separate toilets

One Dining kitchen area

One living area

Two courtyards with a traditional Japanese gardens.

Guest access
Guests will have exclusive of the property, one party per booking.

Thank you for looking at our listings! We've been fortunate to live in different countries until we decided to settle back in Japan where Chie is from. It takes us quite a bit of time to find the perfect old traditional Japanese house to restore but it is all the more rewarding a process that we are often saving unique architecture from certain destruction. With the help of our team of wonderful artisans and award-winning architects, who have now become friends and trusted advisors, we renovate the premises just like we would fix our own house: to be the haven where our guests can see themselves dwell, even for a short time. We hope we can have the pleasure of hosting you. Chie, Chris and the kids... @kyoto.hanare on insta.
