Geppaku, "月白" -- translates to "the color of moonlight.”

Large sliding doors are designed with a pattern that conjures up images of moonlight shining through the evening clouds-- a design reminiscent of the machiya's name, “Geppaku-an”. Although Geppaku-an is located on the main street of Sanjo-dori, this kyo-machiya house is surrounded by a calm and peaceful atmosphere. To the East is a small river, and lush green trees that surround the “Nanzenji Incline”. Walk a little North of your machiya house to visit Heian Jingu Shrine -- a large shrine complex that is famous for its cherry blossom trees & autumn festival, “Jidai Matsuri”.

Local Information

Local Information

A machiya house decorated with custom-made furniture -- "Geppaku-an" will offer an experience that cannot be experienced anywhere else.
This traditional Kyoto house is located to the north of Gion, and to the east of the main shopping & dining area. It is the perfect place for guest who are looking to truly immerse themselves in the local lifestyle, and escape from the busy city life.

With several subway stations nearby, you’ll be able to explore every corner of Kyoto city with ease. Head “Higashiyama” Station, a short 10 minute walk, to visit many sightseeing areas to the West of Geppaku-an. Take the Kyoto City bus, using the one-day pass, to travel up and down the city -- you can visit the famous bamboo forest of Arashiyama, or the always popular red “torii” gates of Fushimi Inari Shrine.

During your stay, we recommend that you stop by the “Furukawa-cho Shoutengai” -- a long shopping arcade that is a few minutes walk away from “Geppaku-an”. You’ll find local shops and markets, along with cafes & restaurants serving local dishes along the entire length of the street. Have a taste of local life during your stay in Kyoto!
