‘Shobu-an’ machiya house: a traditional holiday house (vacation rental) fantastically located near downtown Shijo, Nishiki Market and a leisurely walk to the atmospheric lanes of Ponto-cho alley.
Named after the color of the Japanese iris, a deep violet-hued flower, your stay at “Shobu-an” will be the highlight of your visit to Kyoto. Slide open the doors and be greeted by sky-high 'hibukuro' ceilings, spacious kitchen, and traditional Japanese rooms. The larger living room is the perfect place to relax while admiring the Japanese garden, or enjoying a light meal. The Japanese room near the entrance can be used as a bedroom when more than 7 guests stay here.
Head upstairs to the 2F, and find yourself transported another world away. The Western-style room features 2 large queen-size beds, a vanity table, and shoji windows lining the wall. The adjacent room features a tokonoma alcove, quintessential tatami floors, and washi light fixtures. This renovated Kyoto machiya house also includes modern facilities such as WiFi, IH stovetop, washing machine, and more.
