Found in a prime location, the work of countless skilled craftsmen has bestowed new life within this traditional machiya house.

Beautifully furnished with a low table made of natural red cedar wood, delicately thin papered doors, and tatami mat flooring that stretch across the room. Each material has been carefully hand-selected to embrace the original design and architecture. From the colors to the texture of each design element, together they will inspire your time in Kyoto.

A river lined with the yanagi weeping willow trees, bright green in the spring, the flickering of fireflies in the summer, and a blanket of white snow in the winter. Simply look out from the bedroom window to see the majestic changes in scenery through the seasons.

Room Features

  • Umenoki-an Exterior: Known as an “Eel’s sleeping place” (うなぎの寝床), the layout of these machiya houses are unique in that while at first glance long & narrow, you will discover more the further you delve into the house.
  • Umenoki-an Entrance: In the past, these kudo areas functioned as not only an entranceway, but a kitchen. The design of this area allows you to enter with your shoes on (contrary to general Japanese culture), to seamlessly blend the architecture with the surrounding neighborhood.
  • Umenoki-an Kitchen: A large kitchen countertop, and windows that cover the entire length of the wall — this airy & brights space is the perfect place for you to make light meals during your stay.
  • Umenoki-an Japanese Room (1st Floor): Look up towards the ceiling, and you will see a variety of materials (a mixture of texture and color), a large beam that stretches across the room, and wickerwork pattern that help in bringing a sense of warmth to the atmosphere.
    ・2 x Japanese futon bedding can be set
  • Umenoki-an Garden: From the Japanese room, the window frames the quaint tsuboniwa garden. Featuring a traditional water fountain, Japanese moss, and lush greenery helps to bring liveliness and calm to the house.
  • Umenoki-an Bathroom: Pass through the garden to find a private bathroom in the back. Maintaining the original layout & structure of the house, we have updated the bathroom facilities– this charming feature allows you to experience an outdoor “ofuro” (bath).
    ・Bathtub/Shower
    ・1 x Toilet (1F)
  • Umenoki-an 2F Japanese-style Room: A small, and intimate room on the 2nd Floor. From the otafuku windows, you’ll have a picturesque view of the Shirakawa River trickling gently below.
    ・2 x Japanese futon bedding can be set

Whether you are walking, biking, or taking city transport, you’ll have the best access to many of Kyoto’s most treasured attractions.

If you would like to truly explore the local neighborhood, there is no better way that heading to the neighborhood Furukawa shotengai (a shopping arcade with markets, restaurants, and more).
