Designer linens/towels and organic body soap/shampoo/conditioner are provided with compliment.
The house is just off the main pathway to Kiyomizu temple, along a traditional Kyoto street where many of the residences have been long occupied by artisans and craftsmen who still work at home at their various trades.
Walking North for a few minutes will take you to one of the most famous Geisha districts in the world, Gion. There, you may spot beautifully dressed Geisha and Maiko moving to and from their lessons and tea houses. A scenic and leisurely 5-10 minute walk to the East will take you straight into Kiyomizu Temple, an UNESCO World Heritage listed site and the most cherished treasure of Kyoto. And all around the neighborhood you will find local grocers, bakeries, and restaurants of all types to make your dining and food gathering an enjoyable experience.
The owner of Gion Machiya is an American artist who has been a resident of Kyoto for the last 7 years, who naturally understands what foreign travelers need/wish to have while staying in this most amazing city of Japan he has fallen in love with himself. He also couldn't be more pleased with the location of the house, as it is situated perfectly amidst the best of the Kyoto sites and near all of the conveniences to making your extended stay pleasant and enjoyable.

Only the best, quiet location, not far to the bus and subway. Friendly service. Any time.
Alles vom Feinsten, ruhige Lage, nicht weit zu Bus und U-Bahn. Freundlicher Service. Jederzeit wieder.
Great place I ever stay in Japan. Close to everything. Great lication lovely outlay of thr house. Nice neighbors. Live the place. Staff are helpful and friendly. Love my stay there. Sure I will come back for it. Strongly recommendated
A great little place near Gion, that will allow you quick access to several interesting places. It is a bit tricky getting there, a taxi first time is recommended, but after that you can walk most places.
The house itself is very narrow, but the space has been used in a good way that still allows 6 people to live there without much fuss.
Daily shopping is close by and the kitchen is well supplied should you want to cook dinner.
Learn to love the busses. They will get you most places at a reasonable fare, but expect them to be very crowded.
If you are staying in Kyoto and want a really nice place to stay, that is close to everything of interest, yet still tucked away from the busy streets, then this is most definitely the place for you.
The Machiya Yoshimura has exceeded our expectations! We were a group of students and professors, and for exchanges and workshops with the Architecture Faculty of the University arrived in Kyoto. On this occasion, it was important to stay us as a group in a traditional townhouse Kyto.
This wish has accommodation fully met, pressing in places in terms of originality, an eye to. Entrance hall, tatami room, large tatami, two-storey Machiyaküche, balcony, romantic garden and not forgetting, situated near the garden sanitation "In Praise of Shadows (陰 翳 礼 讃 In'ei Raisan)".
The contact persons of the house are very friendly, speak English and are among the most important dates on site. The accommodation was a elemtarer block an almost perfect trip and therefore we recommend only further.
Die Machiya Yoshimura hat unsere Erwartungen übertroffen! Wir waren eine Gruppe von Studenten und Professoren und für einen Austausch und Workshop mit der Architekturfakultät der Universität in Kyoto angereist. Zu diesem Anlass war es uns wichtig auch als Gruppe in einem traditionellen Kyto-Stadthaus zu wohnen.
Diesen Wunsch hat die Unterkunft voll erfüllt, drückt man an manchen Stellen in Punkto Originalität ein Augen zu. Eingangshalle, Tatamizimmer, grosser Tatamiraum, zweigeschossige Machiyaküche, Balkon, romantischer Garten und nicht zu vergessen die am Garten gelegenen Sanitäranlagen "In Praise of Shadows (陰翳礼讃 In'ei Raisan)".
Die Kontaktpersonen des Hauses sind sehr freundlich, sprechen Englisch und sind zu den wichtigen Terminen vor Ort. Die Unterkunft war ein elemtarer Baustein einer nahezu perfekten Reise und ist deshalb von uns nur weiter zu empfehlen.
Fully in line with my expectations, a traditional interior quality and a follow excellent, highly recommended.
Parfaitement conforme à mes attentes,un intérieur traditionnel de qualité et un suivi excellent, à recommander absolument.
Nous avons passé un excellent séjour à Kiyo House.
L'appartement était très vaste pour deux et très fonctionnel. La salle de bain était très appréciable avec toutes ses fonctionnalités très avancées. La chambre principale était très sympa avec une partie en tatami.
L'équipe qui gère cet appartement est très organisée, nous avions toutes les informations nécessaires pour le séjour.
