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”.

Room Features

  • Geppaku-an Entrance The inside of the entranceway features a ceiling with decorative crosspieces and a sloping ceiling under the roof. Direct sunlight pours into the window from the south. From here, you can admire the view of the antique wooden door and white plaster walls.
  • Geppaku-an Japanese Living Room (1F) The living room is the room located farthest from the road. The windows facing the interior garden have “yukimi shouji,” or traditional paper screens that are attached to the top half of the windows, leaving the bottom half of the windows uncovered to offer an unobstructed view of the garden.
    ・3 x futon bedding can be set here
  • Geppaku-an Japanese-style Room (1F) This room reflects how the surrounding area of the machiya is dotted with temples, but also features Western inspired styles such as the Kyoto Municipal Museum of Art.
    ・1 x futon bedding can be set here
  • Geppaku-an Garden The interior garden is an important area of the Kyoto machiya, where wind and light penetrate a small, confined space. The lush green garden can be seen through the window below the paper screen. At night, the garden can be lit up to offer a different kind of enchanting view.
  • Geppaku-an Bathroom Enjoy a luxurious bath that will make you forget about the stresses of everyday life. A modern bathroom waits for you to soak in a warm bath and soothe your body from the day's travels, and offers you a space to gaze into the beautiful interior garden. The washroom adjacent features an antique framed mirror hanging above the sink.
    ・ 1 x bathtub/shower
    ・ 1 x toilet on the 1F
  • Geppaku-an Kitchen The kitchen is decorated with antique fixtures and furnishings. The look and design of the antique fixtures integrated within the Japanese ambience permeates the house.
    ・Floor Heating
  • Geppaku-an Western-style Bedroom The custom made sliding doors open to unveil the bedroom. The high ceiling extends to the roof giving the room a more open and spacious feel. The history of the house is evidenced by the alcove and the area surrounding, both of which have been there since the house was first built.
    ・2 x twin sized-beds on the 2F

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!
