About Machiya Residence Inn

A place in Kyoto just for you

At Machiya Residence Inn, we rent a house out to only one group at a time. This means that you have an entire house for yourself and your group.
With an entire house at your disposal, you will have room to truly relax.

Various locations to choose from

With machiya spread throughout Kyoto, you'll be able to find the machiya that fits best into your travel plans. From the quiet neighborhoods of the Gion district to the central and convenient location of Shijo-Karasuma, you'll find a different experience in every machiya.

Luxury of a home away from home

At Machiya Residence Inn, you will be able to enjoy the machiya townhouses as you would your very own home. A home away from home, you will find the privacy and comfort that will allow you to indulge yourself in your own personal space.
