"Tsukikusa-an" is located in Miyagawa-cho, right next to the famous and historical Gion. Both Miyagawa-cho and Gion are two of five famous Hanamachi districts (flower districts) of Kyoto.

Many geisha, or geiko, have spent their youths in these hanamachi districts practicing and perfecting their skills in Japan’s traditional and high-class form of entertainment – singing, dancing, musical instruments, and more. You can find subtle reminders of this colourful past throughout the house.

Despite this property being located in the middle of one of Kyoto’s most popular and exciting areas, take one step inside this Machiya and find yourself a world away from the busy city life.

Local Information

Local Information

A kyo-machiya, traditional Japanese townhouse, that is nothing short of intrigue.
This particular kyo-machiya is owned by a former geiko who worked at one of the many お茶や(O-cha-ya) found in Kyoto’s hanamachi districts. Although ochaya can quite literally be translated as “tea house,” it holds a history much more rich and complex than what the name suggests. Even today, ochaya are establishments where these geiko and maiko go to perform high-class entertainment for its patrons.

There are numerous restaurants that serve traditional and modern Kyoto cuisine, some of Kyoto’s most well established shops, and the city’s best sightseeing spots surrounding this Machiya. Fnd yourself a world away whilst walking amongst the stone-cobbled streets and traditional Japanese architecture.

A 5-minute walk will lead you towards two other famous Kyoto “hanamachi” districts: Gion, and Ponto-cho. Walk a little further towards the Kamo River and find yourself at Shijo-Kawaramachi – Kyoto City’s exciting shopping, dining, and nightlife area.
