Room Features

  • Kohaku-an Entrance An open, and airy entrance way will welcome you into the house as you open the wooden doors. From here, the natural light peeking through the latticed doors and windows, along with the warm glow of the amber-colored light fixtures will lead you further into the machiya.
  • Kohaku-an Kitchen A self-contained kitchen with all the conveniences and facilities found in a modern home, we invite you to use these facilities and more during your stay. Stop by the nearby “shoutengai” (a long street lined with various markets and stores) to pick up some locally grown vegetables, and experience life as a local as you cook a delicious meal.
  • Kohaku-an “Tsuboniwa” Garden The Japanese maple tree at the center of this “tsuboniwa” garden reflects the changing seasons of Kyoto. “Tobi-ishi,” or small stepping stones, surround the small water basin to provide you with a private & serene space.
  • Kohaku-an Living Room/Kitchen The heart of the Japanese home. The living space is fitted with quintessential tatami flooring, while the kitchen features a high ceiling known as a “hibukuro” (originally served as a chimney). All of the furnishings have been custom-made by Kyoto’s finest craftsmen.

    When more than 4 guests stay at this machiya, 2 additional futon bedding will be set on the 1st floor.
  • Kohaku-an Bathroom Dark, wooden fixtures decorate the washroom and bath area to perfectly complement the natural greenery of the “tsuboniwa” garden, which can be seen through the window. Soak in a relaxing bath, and look out towards this point of calm and beauty.

    2 toilet areas located on the 1st floor.
  • Kohaku-an Western-Style Bedroom A set of stairs will lead you to a Western-style bedroom, and an intimate lounge area. Large windows allow for the natural light to bathe the bedroom with warmth to perfectly complement the golden and orange hues that decorate this machiya.

    The Western-style bedroom has 2 single beds and a dressing table. The ceiling features all of the original wooden framework so that you may appreciate the structure and history of Kohaku-an. The “fusuma,” or sliding doors, in this room has a golden color scheme to reflect the name of the house.
  • Kohaku-an Den From the tatami-lined floors, to the antique furniture detailed with images of bamboo trees in the corner, it is the perfect place for you to reminisce about your day. Although the lounge room is minimalistic in appearance, you will find it to be full of character and warmth.

    An additional 2 futon bedding can be set in the lounge area for larger groups.
