'Akebono-an' machiya house: a traditional Kyoto holiday house (vacation rental) conveniently located 1 station from Kyoto Station, and just a 3-min. walk to Toji Temple, a UNESCO world heritage site.

Like the colours of dawn against Toji Temple’s five storied pagoda, calming deep blue and radiant gold reflect within 'Akebono-an’.

Take a seat in the Japanese-style living room or along the ‘engawa’ veranda to enjoy the inner garden. Lamps, walls and doors covered with Japanese ‘washi’ paper create soft textures and a warm atmosphere.

As well as traditional design, 'Akebono-an’ also features modern comforts, such as a kitchen, and a beautiful bathroom with a deep-soaking bathtub and rainfall shower which offer ultimate relaxation.
