"Kiyomizu Machiya" is an old traditional Kyoto townhouse just fully renovated, featuring luxurious facilities.
The perfect location to experience the traditional lifestyle of the people of Kyoto in full modern comfort while visiting the city.
Entirely redesigned from the ground up, with both traditional and modern material. Special attention was paid to the atmosphere of the place for the enjoyment of our guests.
Our concept remains “Old Traditional Machiya with Modern Comfort”. Yes, in Kyoto, old traditional townhouse (Machiya) are actually very cold in winter and quite hot during the summer. We paid particular attention to the insulation of walls and ceiling, installed floor heating around the ground floor, western style radiators in the upper bedrooms and the laundry room, and a heater/dryer in the bathroom. All the rooms have air conditioning. The whole place has been decorated with various old traditional Japanese art-crafts.
The newly renovated townhouse features one traditional Japanese tatami mat bedroom (sleeping on futon) and one Western-style bedroom with two single beds, sliding wooden doors (some are old original ones), “Shoji and Fusuma” paper doors and windows, modern cypress bathroom.
In the living / dining area, we have a wood dining table with seating for five. During the cold winter, you will appreciate the floor heating both in the living/dining area and the Japanese living space. A large flat screen HD TV is available for your enjoyment.
The fully equipped modern kitchen will please anyone who wants to cook at home for a simple breakfast or a complete dinner. A large selection of cooking utensils, induction cooktop, microwave oven / oven, all kind of appliances such as rice cooker, toaster, blender, electric kettle, coffee machine, and dishes, plates, glasses. The setting is convenient for short stay as well as for people who stay for a longer period and prefer to eat at home. And of course, you'll find the basics such as salt-pepper, oil, sauce, soja, etc.
The house is also equipped with a fully automatic All-In-One Washer / Dryer, something travelers will truly appreciate.
The place is very conveniently located for easy access to all sightseeing sites around Kyoto, and with almost 70 m2, it is spacious and adequate for groups of up to five people. (Even though we're in Japan, we refuse the idea of packing 8 persons in 40 m2!)
And of course, unlimited hi-speed wi-fi internet access is available anywhere in the house.
