Rent a whole Kyōmachiya for an important anniversary KYOMACHIYA-SUITE RIKYU = It is also possible to charter for private functions The RIKYU located in Gion Higashiyama, right at the heart of Kyoto, with famous temples such as the Kiyomizu-dera or the popular amusement and shopping quarter of Gion-Kawaramachi right in its neighborhood
I was born in the Kamigyō ward, and spent my early childhood in a Kyō-machiya. Because I always loved the scenery where I grew up, I really wanted to preserve that for coming generations and renovated an old Kyoto townhouse. You may call it a new Kyōmachiya. To let pedestrians feel the beauty of Kyoto's street scenery, the building of the Inn is carefully designed to not disturb its surrounding neighbourhood. In the same mind, we provide all amenities and decorations with that certain flair of Kyoto. Each and every one of it is filled with the emotions of the person who made it. The special feature of this Inn is to use them and learn about the fun you may have in using them and eventually buy one one of it.
Only a few minutes by foot, you will not only find tourist attractions which made Kyoto the famous town it is, such as Kiyomizu Temple, Yasaka Shrine or the Hanamikōji Road, but also many more. 「The surrounding main tourist spot」 ・Kiyomizu-dera Temple ・Yasaka-jinja(jinja means shrine) ・Yasaka-no-to (Yasaka Pagoda). ・Kodai-ji Temple
