‘Meika’ machiya house: a renovated 100 year-old traditional Japanese holiday house (vacation rental) located in the Gion-Higashiyama area of Kyoto city. This location will offer you great access to the UNESCO Site Kiyomizu Temple, Kenninji Temple, and downtown Kyoto. The surrounding neighborhood also offers many cafes, long-established traditional restaurants, local supermarkets, and more.

As you walk along the bustling street leading up to the Yasaka Pagoda, turn down a hidden alley into a serene oasis. The 1F of this traditional Japanese house features a spacious living-dining room with several sofas & chairs for you to relax on. Enjoy a relaxing bath with a garden view after a day of exploring city. The ‘touki’ (porcelain) bath is inspired by the traditional ‘goemon,’ which are round, cauldron-shaped baths commonly used during the Edo period. On the 2F are 2 bedrooms: a western-style bedroom with a queen-size bed, and a classic tatami room that can accommodate up to 2 guests on futon beds.

A little background as to how ‘Meika’ earned its name: ‘Meika’ machiya house is located in the Yumiyacho neighborhood, which used to hold an annual meigen ceremony. “Meigen” is a Shinto ceremony during which the bowstrings (of a bow & arrow) were played to drive away evil spirits and bring in good fortune. With this feeling in mind, we hope that all guests who stay at ‘Meika’ also experience great luck & joy.
