Shimabara, Kyoto.
Once a flourishing Hanamachi District, this neighborhood still retains the charm and allure of when it was a bustling area for locals and travelers alike.

Kyoto is a city famous for its Hanamachi Districts -- areas in which geiko and maiko girls lived and perfected traditional song, dance, and entertainment for customers. Although no longer an active Hanamachi District, Shimabara has now transformed into a neighborhood with hidden treasures and historical gems with every corner you turn.

  • Shimabara Kaiden Kitchen From the entrance way, enter into an open space that will draw your eyes to the large, open space that extends from the 1st floor all the way up to the 2nd floor. A compact kitchen to your left with everything that you will need to make light meals during your stay.
  • Shimabara Kaiden Dining Room A large, wooden dining room table designed from natural wood & 6 chairs are available to seat both small and large groups. Look up towards the open ceiling to find three koi fish swimming above -- colorful and unique lighting that perfectly captures the essence of Shimabara Kaiden.
  • Shimabara Kaiden Living Room A low sofa seating that utilizes fabric featuring a design reminiscent of traditional folk art surrounds a small table. Bask in the natural light that floods in from the skylight windows from above, as you relax after a day of exploring the city.

Local Information

Local Information

Located near Kyoto Station, within a former “Hanamachi” district, lies a spacious machiya house that brings a sense of nostalgia through its playful architecture and design.
This machiya house takes advantage of its location and original architecture to create an dramatic yet calm atmosphere. Constructed using the finest materials & craftsmanship, the main source of natural light comes from the large windows, which take up the entire length of one wall.

Wake up early enough and experience the Maguro Tuna auction that begins at 5am! A 5 minute walk from Shimabara Kaiden house, this is Kyoto's version of the famous Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo. Although more compact in size, the Kyoto Oroshiuri Ichiba is still a bustling & exciting market --view the freshly caught fish displayed in a row, buyers scrambling to get the best catch of the day, and more! There is also an area for seasonal fruits, and kyo-kasai (Kyoto-grown vegetables) in addition to food stalls and restaurants.

Just one station away from the main Kyoto Station, you'll have easy access to many sightseeing areas. Jump on the train to visit the famed bamboo forests of Arashiyama -- a must see in Kyoto.
