Overview
Holiday Rental House -
2 Bedrooms , 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 3
Kyoto, Kyoto Prefecture, Kinki
Indigo House Gion is two level “machiya” style traditional townhouse, which was transformed from its abandoned and dilapidated condition into a architectural showplace in mid 2015 by renowned architect Geoffrey Moussas. This “machiya” was built in the early 1900s, and was formerly used as an “ochaya,” a teahouse where geisha entertained elite clientele.

It is located just a few steps from The Gion House and Amber House Gion, on a quiet cul-de-sac street in Gion, with no through traffic. The Gion neighborhood is known for its long history as Japan’s most important geisha district, where you can still find streets lined with the historic buildings for which Kyoto is known. And there is so much to see and do within walking distance. The heart of downtown is just a ten minute walk away.

From Osaka Kansai Airport (KIX), we recommend the door-to-door shuttle van services of Yasaka KIX Shuttle. From Kyoto Station or other points in Kyoto, we recommend arriving by taxi the first time, to avoid the frustration of getting lost. Guests will be provided with maps and necessary instructions before arrival.
