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).

"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.
