Ochaya tea houses were once a popular establishment – where customers could converse with geiko & maiko girls, while being entertained by games, and song & dance.

Garaku-an machiya house has been re-designed to resemble these quintessentially Japanese wooden architectures. During the evening, the lattice windows allow for the interior light to faintly trickle through-- recalling a fascinating history and culture. Garaku-an machiya house also resides along the road of the Takasegawa River, providing you with a serene view during your stay in Kyoto.

Local Information

Local Information

Situated on a quiet lane alongside the Takasegawa canal, this spacious machiya will introduce you to the hidden gems of Kyoto.
Garaku-an is found in an ideal location – looking out towards the Takasegawa River -- a calm and serene view.

Cherry blossoms in the spring, bright greenery in the summer, vibrant maple leaves in the autumn, and the crisp air of the winter. From the tsuboniwa garden, you will also be able to enjoy a private atmosphere of the changing Kyoto seasons. Take an early morning stroll up Kiyomizu Temple to avoid the crowds and bask in the quite atmosphere of a temple that has more that 1200 years of history.

Or jump on the Keihan train and venture south of Kyoto Station to where you will find the Fushimi Inari Shrine. Thousands of vermillion torii gates that wind up and down the mountainside, allowing you to delve further into history with each step.
