Rates will vary depending on season, date, and number of guests. Children 5 years of age and under, who do not require bedding, do not need to be included within the total number of adults (may stay free of charge).
If a child will require a separate bedding, they will be considered as one (1) additional adult guest. In this case, please include the child in the total number of ‘adults per room’ when making your reservation (they will be charged as an adult).

A playful machiya that utilizes a variety of different wood native to Japan, each area of the house exquisitely melds together elements of rich, dark brown wood to the lighter and softer impression of the Japanese Cypress wood. This particular characteristic helps transform the minimalistic design of the traditional machiya townhouse to bring a sense of warmth and relaxation.

With the grand view of the historical Nijo Castle just a couple of blocks away, take a leisurely stroll from this popular World Heritage Site to find yourself in front of this quaint little machiya house.
