I love it and prepared this house for you to enjoy SAMURAI culture!

The space

I renovated a machiya(Japanese traditional merchant's house) in Kyoto on the July of 2015. This accommodation has basic necessary equipment, new home appliances, and really clean bathroom and toilet. This rooms is equipped with Japanese TATAMI mat, HUSUMA, DOMA and KOSHI, so you can enjoy old Japanese lifestyle.

This cozy house locates along Philosophers' Walk, the walking trail from Wakaoji-jinja Shrine (若王子神社) to Ginkaku-ji Temple (銀閣寺) , at a quiet area with nature. It is only few minutes from Ginkaku-ji (銀閣寺) and Nanzen-ji (南禅寺).

There are at least four reasons that I will recommend this house: 1. Clean and spacious. We had two adults and one child living there. Felt very comfortable in the roomy house. 2. All the facilities are in fine condition. We prepared breakfast and washed clothes. We had all facilities we needed. 3. Location is good. Environment is very tranquility and nice.Neighborhood is quite even the famous temples are nearby. There several good restaurants and cafe on the street. Taxi is easily took on the street. 4. Communication is smoothly. Host is good at English and contacted with us every day to make sure we are out of any problem when we stayed in the house.

We loved staying at the Samurai House. The location was just perfect, literally right along the Path of Philosophy. Yoshimi was incredibly helpful. The house guide gave us all the details we needed and she offered us restaurant options and called us a taxi on our last day. We had amazing time in Kyoto and our Airbnb was part of that experience. Thank you Yoshimi!

Great place on Philospher's Path in Kyoto! Although a little further out from some Kyoto attractions, we loved the quiet Philosopher's Path area, the nearby hills, and the great home, and close shops. Would love to stay here again.

This place is fantastic! It is an excellent, beautiful location right on the philosophers path in a great neighborhood. The beds are comfortable and the rooms are quiet for sleeping. We had a wonderful stay, and would come back if ever in Kyoto. Highly recommended

The Samurai House is perfect for walking along the Path of Philosophy and visiting Temples. It is a taxi drive from downtown Kyoto however there are restaurants and cafes nearby

Hi there,
I’m Yoji and I really love Samurai, as well as the traditional Japanese culture. I am inspired by how Samurai lived and thought. They are role models for me. Japan is popular for travelers these days and many tourists come to Tokyo and Kyoto from all over the world. I especially love Kyoto, because there are so many traditional temples and cultures left in Kyoto, and I always get excited when I see them! To let people know more about SAMURAI and the Japanese traditional culture, I redecorated the one hundred years old Japanese house, and build a 【Samurai House】 in July of 2015.
Anyone who are interested in Japan, Samurai, or Kyoto, please choose my Samurai House!
I promise to satisfy your demand! Can’t wait to hear from you soon

Hi, I’m Yoshimi.
I really love Japan, Samurai, and Kyoto! My recommendation for you is to spend a relaxed time in the Samurai House, a traditional Japanese house. We have two Samurai armors in the house, and you are welcome to wear one of them, so please take pictures with the Samurai armor! Please come and see our Samurai House!!

せっかくならば、少しでもサムライや日本の伝統文化を知って楽しんでいただきたいと思い、100年程前に作られた京町家を改装し、【SAMURAI House】を2015年7月に作りました。

よしみです。日本がとても大好き、かっこいい侍が大好き、京都が大好きです!Samurai Houseでは日本らしい畳に座りのんびりと過ごすことがお勧めです。
Samurai Houseには鎧が2体待っています!1体は装着していただくことができますので、是非鎧を着て侍になりきって写真などを撮っていただけたら嬉しいです。是非私たちのSamurai Houseに遊びに来てください。
