Company information

Originally from France, Philippe has since his childhood been intrigued by Japanese pop culture through manga and video games. In 2017 after working two years in London for a Japanese company, his deep interest in Japanese art and design has led him to take the leap to learn Japanese in Kyoto. Being charmed by the old capital he decided to extend his adventure and settle in Kyoto. He will be happy to share with you his passion for Japan, its culture, arts, and crafts.

Property information

This small vacation rental on a single level in Kyoto is ideal for a young couple wishing to eat and sleep Japanese style in the most prestigious district of the city, Gion. You can prepare your meals in the kitchenette and comfortably eat them seated on the zabuton, Japanese cushion, in the lounge covered with tatami. A tokonoma, an area where the Japanese have art objects and a flower arrangement, invites you to give a personal touch to the living room. The Japanese bedroom will enchant you with its relaxing charms: the aroma of tatamis, gentle lighting and the cozy comfort of futons. One-level house: kitchen/dining room, 2 Japanese adjoining rooms (for two, on Japanese futons), Japanese bathroom (shower and Japanese furo bath), toilet.

Neighbourhood information

Gion is the oldest best-preserved example of traditional Kyoto architecture. Our typically Kyotoite house is located 200 yards from the famous Hanamikoji street, which crosses Gion. This street is bordered with restaurants, accessories shops, craft shops, ochaya shops (tea houses). Spirituality is also two steps away from the house, in the enclosure of Kuenning Temple where Zen Buddhism is practiced.
