Simplistic at first glance, an inviting warmth awaits you as you take your first steps within the property.
Nestled between its neighboring houses, Rikyu-an may seem small and unassuming at first. However, open the door to find a spacious house large enough to accommodate couples to small groups of family & friends (up to 5 guests).
Located to the North of Kiyomizu Temple, East of Kennin-ji, South of the Yasaka Shrine. The beautifully preserved historical district of Gion is also a short 10 minute walk away. You will have plenty of easy access to Kyoto's popular areas -- choose to utilize the Kyoto City bus, or take a leisurely stroll towards any sightseeing attractions.
You'll find plenty of restaurants and cafes within the surrounding area. Walk up to the Yasaka Pagoda in the morning, and stop by the local cafe for breakfast and a cup of coffee. Head west towards the Gion area to have a taste of traditional Kyoto cuisine.

ABOUT THE MACHIYA HOUSE
Located amongst a street lined with a number of other traditional machiya houses, “Rikyu-an” is enveloped by Japanese cedar (杉板; sugiita), and features the traditional “ichimonji-kawara” roof style.
Dark, green tiles adorning the walls allow for a beautiful contrast between the white stucco walls. In the hall space adjacent, you will find a counter table and chair from which you can enjoy a calm atmosphere.
Decorative crossbeams, constructed from natural wood, stretch across the ceiling to bring character to the living space. Slide open the “Shoji” doors to find a “tsuboniwa” Japanese garden, characteristic of many traditional machiya houses.
・2 x Japanese futon bedding can be set
Sharing the same space as the living room is the kitchen. Although designed with the traditional machiya in mind, Rikyu-an successfully blends the traditional with the modern by utilizing a jet-black counter top and retro sink fixtures.
The spacious bathroom, with high-sloping ceilings, offers a serene space to relax. Constructed using the Japanese “Hinoki” wood, a sandy-coloured wood often used when building Noh theatres, palaces, and temples, allows for you to relax in luxury.
・2 x Toilets (1F)
2F Western-style Room:
The main bedroom boasts a separate dresser-room and closet for your convenience. Here, you will find a large mirror, table, and bench that you can utilize as you ready for the day or while you unwind after a day of exploring the city.
