Jizo is the guardian of travellers and An means cottage or 'quiet retreat', hence travellers cottage.

Jizo-An is located in an alleyway of only 5 houses ensuring that the house is completely quiet yet allowing immediate access to the middle of Kyoto's historical Higashiyama district. Guests can return, relax, have a rest, shower, sleep, change clothes or have a cup of tea while still remaining in the historical area. The house is small, one bedroom upstairs, kitchen/lounge downstairs. It has been lovingly restored in the traditional style of an old Kyoto Teahouse.
