Holiday Rental House
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. Nijo Castle, Nishiki Market, and Shinkyogoku Shopping Arcade are within a short walking distance, and from the train station which is less than 10 minute walk away from the house, you can visit and see numerous historic sites in Kyoto: such as Kinkakuji (...The renovation of Senraku House located in downtown Kyoto was completed in Spring 2011.

Location! Location! Location!: Senraku House is located in Central Kyoto: Visiting beautiful historic sites in Kyoto is very easy from the house. You can even take a day trip to Nara, another old capital of Japan, to Ohara, an old nature reserved area with temples, hot springs and unique small shops, and to other cities like Osaka, Kobe from its prime location of Sen-Raku House. Gion Festival: During the Gion Festival in July, one of the three major festivals of Japan, the House becomes part of the festivities. One of the prime locations of the Gion Festival is only a minute away. Living in Kyoto!, not Visiting Kyoto!!: The house has well-appointed kitchen, laundry machine, high-speed internet connection with laptop computer, and 32 inch flat screen TV; so you can experience “Living in Kyoto” , not “Visiting Kyoto” at Senraku House. Kyoto Accommodation Tax: Please note that Kyoto Accommodation Tax (200 yen per night per guest) are not included in the rate listed. We will send you the invoice for the tax once a reservation is made. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 京都市指令保保医第895号&京都市指令保保生第82号More
