NEW!! Machiya in Gion's Ninen-Zaka neighbourhood

Villa -
3 Bedrooms, 1 Bathroom , Sleeps 5
Kyoto, Kyoto Prefecture, Kinki
The Kiyomizu Machiya Inn is located in one of the oldest neighborhoods of Kyoto, in the Prime tourist location of Ninezaka next to the Yasaka Pagoda. The Kiyomizu Temple, a Unesco World Heritage site is only a 10 minute walk up the hill from our place. This sought after location offers lots of shopping, restaurants and more historical sites such as the Yasaka Shrine and Chionin Temples

The famous Gion district known for its nightlife and Kyoto's main shopping area are about a 10-15 minutes walk. Come stay and experience the old way of life in Kyoto in this rare and hard to find Machiya in the best location.

About the neighbourhood
Located in the highly sought after historical neighborhood of Ninezaka, 100 meters from the Yasaka Pagoda and a short walk to Gion. The Kiyomizu Temple is a short walk up the hill from the machiya. There are lots of restaurants, shopping and tourist attractions very close by. Ideal for sightseeing and going out in the evening to Gion. From the main Kyoto Station to our Machiya, it takes only 10~15 minutes by taxi (approx. US$15). The closest bus stop is 'Kiyomizu Michi' and it's about a 7~8 minutes walk to our Machiya. The closest subway is the Shijo Subway Station on the Keihan Line, and it's about a 10-15 minute walk from our Machiya.

NOTE: There may be limited car access during events around the property.
