The space

Thank you for looking at our traditional house in Kyoto which is renovated to traditional house in 2013. And this house is located a short walk to many sightseeings such as Kitano Tenman-gu shrine. We hope will offer a unique experience in Kyoto to the travelers.
About 100 years old traditional completely renovated townhouse(Machiya) was ready for rental starting in 2013.

There is only one room which is tatami room in our house. And there is shower room.

For the comfort of our guests and going slightly against the traditional design.

For the beddings, the tatami room provides traditional Japanese futons.

- Main house
1st floor: Entrance, kitchen, Japanese sitting area, bathroom, and toilet

On the day of arrival, we will meet you on site and provide all information on the house and tell you interest place for sightseeing, shopping and dining if you want to.

You will also be able to reach us by telephone and by e-mail throughout your stay for any kind of assistance.

Our house is located in Kamishichiken, a short 2-3 minutes walk to the Kitano Tenman-gu shrine which is dedicated to Sugawara no Michizane, a god of learning, and is the chief shrine of all the Tenman-gu in Japan.

Kamishichiken has retained some of its old charm with many machiyas, traditional old houses, and workshops still lined up in the street. You can enjoy typical Kyoto in this area. This is a red- light district, so you can often see Geiko and Maiko on the street.

Hirano jinjya shrine can be reached in 15 minutes by foot. This area is great place to see cherry blossom in spring.

We can also arrange bike rentals services, good way of sightseeing especially in our neighborhood.

Thank you

Please make a reservation at least 2 nights!

We wish to sincerely apologize for being strict, but our main concern is the safety and well being of everyone: our guests, our neighbors and ourselves.

1. For safety reason, we have an safety reason, we have an obsolutely no smoking policy inside but also outside of the house. This includes balcony, the entrance etc‥ Also smoking in the street in front of our house will not only disturb our neighbors (with little kids)but might also result in cigarette butts littering the floor.(URL HIDDEN)2. Please be aware that as often in Kyoto, our house is located in a compound where other long term residents live peacefully and quietly with their neighbors(URL HIDDEN) We ask our guests to avoid smoking noise or having loud conversations outside of the house.

3. Please respect the tradition in Japan of removing one's shoes at all time inside the house, and do not roll your suitcase on the tatami room.

4. Please bring own garbage to your home. However, you can buy 2 bags in check in center.

Again, we apologize for having strict rules. Thank you very much for your understanding.

This house is situated in a very quiet area of Kyoto that is still easily accessible from the main centres of the city. We really enjoyed our stay in this authentic, beautiful house and would definitely recommend visiting! There are two beautiful temples nearby that are well worth visiting, as well as being within walking distance of great restaurants and the Golden Shrine. Thanks for letting us stay!

This place is amazing! It was peaceful and authentic, we had an perfect stay there. Even if the house is a little bit far from the city, there are bus and trains not so far. It was also nice to have a kitchen so we can cook our own dinner. I would absolutely recommend it!

Umeno-To-An's place is lovely! Has all the comforts of home in a beautiful Japanese setting. Public transport options are located within a short walking distance from the house, as are supermarkets, service stations, and a laundry mat. Very quiet, very beautiful, traditional, part of town. The local cafe and restaurant owners were also very lovely.

A very nice, clean and cozy little house, that was decorated in traditional Japanese style. Only a short walk from the Golden Pavilion, but otherwise a little far from all other mayor sights and Kyoto St.

It's a great, secluded place to stay deep in an old, local neighborhood. Access to arayshima and a few north temples are relatively easy if you don't mind walking a lot. The space itself is sufficient for two travelers and the tatami floors are pleasant but delicate.

Good way to experience "Old Japan" in Kyoto without the awkwardness/expense of a traditional Ryokan. Very simple but comfortable space.
