Traditional Town House with Garden near Kyoto Station
Description from the owner
Our traditional Kyoto townhouse has been newly refurbished, and is a very quiet residential neighborhood about 20 minutes walk from Kyoto station or 5 minute taxi ride (It is under 1000 yen). It is also 10 minutes walk from the nearest subway station (one stop south of Kyoto Station), and bus lines to Gion/downtown.
The house is one-storey, with two bedrooms, wooden floor through except the tatami bedroom, kitchen with all amenities, Japanese-style bathroom, and a small 'tsubo-niwa' Kyoto style 'pocket garden' with a Japanese maple (momiji) tree.
The master bedroom has a western-style double bed, wooden floors, desk for writing, and a direct view onto the garden.
This room can fit two people in the double bed, and if necessary, one additional person on a futon.
There is a Japanese-style bedroom with tatami mat floors, and two single futons that can be put together for a couple. This room can fit maximum two people.
There is a living room next to the garden, with small table, sofa.
One person could sleep in this room if necessary on a futon.
The house is perfect for 2 - 4 people, but could accommodate up to 5 if the living room was also used as a bedroom at night.
The house is very quiet, with little traffic outside and is a perfect place to come back to after a busy day sightseeing. There is very fast fibre-optic internet (wifi), plus air-conditioning, heating. The kitchen has a microwave, toaster and oven, a stove, rice cooker, kettle, and fridge-freezer.
Our neighborhood is not far from the Kamo-gawa river, and there are various restaurants within walking distance. There is a large supermarket 5 minutes on foot, with everything you could need and the delicious freshly made ready meals.
Less then 10 minutes walk away is the bus stop for the 207, which leaves about every 10 minutes to Gojo-Kiyomizu, Gion and the Shijo-Kawaramachi shopping area (about 15 minutes). The Tofoku -ji station has JR/Keihan lines which you can get the trains to Nara/Osaka easily. Tofoku-ji temple is also about 15 minutes away on foot. You can also walk to Toji Temple where it is the famous flea market.
The house was fully renovated in September 2013, and is a really comfortable place to relax and experience a normal Japanese neighborhood.
