The house is simply amazing. It was definitely one of the highlights of our Kyoto trip, which is no small feat given how gorgeous the city is. It is a traditional Kyoto wooden house, renovated so as to retain the original architecture and atmosphere. The...More

About the neighbourhood
Our house is located in Kamisuzuya-cho, a short 12 mn walk to the north of Kyoto station.

Originally a tinsmith district supplying the Imperial court in ancient Japan, Suzuya-cho has retained some of its old charm with many quaint machiyas, traditional old houses, and workshops still lined up in the streets. Our garden actually faces one of the oldest fabric factories in Kyoto and if you walk to the local sento (public bath) you can admire its beautiful compound.

Halfway between the station and our house, you can visit the UNESCO World Heritage site of Nishi Honganji and Higashi Honganji.

The shopping district of Shijo-Karasuma is a short 12-15 mn walk away.
Getting around
The Gojo subway station is 3 mn from the house.

Gojo Dori where you can catch taxis, quite a reasonable option for short rides, is 1 mn away.

We have a 24/7 supermarket 1 mn from the house.
