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).

This machiya expresses the light of new hope and the evanescence found during Japan's 'Romantic Taisho Era' (1912 to 1926).

A time when Japan had recently been exposed to a slightly more western lifestyle, this era ushered in the perfect balance between the traditional Japanese style combined with the vibrant and international scene of the Meiji Period. "Suo-an" machiya house, accentuated with shades of crimson, is a townhouse that reflects the influence that modern design had on the traditional machiya house. A large wooden beam stretches across the ceiling -- portraying the charm of the traditional architecture. Tatami-mat lined rooms that have been designed with the Japanese tea ceremony room in mind. Enjoy an atmosphere that can only be experienced at Suo-an machiya house.

Local Information

Local Information

9-minute walk from "Shijo" - Kyoto's popular shopping and dining district - and Shijo subway station, just 2 stops from Kyoto Station.
The "Shijo" area of Kyoto is known to be the popular shopping and dining district. You will find plenty of dining options to choose from -- all within walking distance.

We recommend "Nishiki Market," a lively shopping arcade with shops that sell fresh seafood & poultry, Kyoto-grown produce, hand-made side dishes, and more.

Explore the entire Higashiyama area (located east of Suo-an). You'll be able to see the wonders of Kiyomizu Temple, the cherry-blossom lined Philosopher's Path during the spring, the cool gardens of Kenninji Temple, and more. Take the Kyoto City Subway West to Nijo Castle -- a castle with an interesting history and background regarding its former resident and architecture.
