Your Pavilion near Kinkakuji (2BR renovated 100 y.o. wooden townhouse)

Newly renovated Kyoto style two-story townhouse (machiya) for 2-5 guests with two bedrooms, living, island kitchen and dining, and mini Japanese garden, in a peaceful residential areas near the city's longest traditional mom and pop shopping street.

10 min by four free bikes to Golden Pavilion / Kinkaku-ji and Kamogawa river. Great location to explore the north including Kamigamo-shrine, Daitoku-ji, Silver Pavilion / Ginkaku-ji, Ryoan-ji, and Kyoto Imperial Palace.

The townhouse was used for weaving yarn into a traditional Kyoto textile (Nishijin-ori) by the previous house resident before the 94 years old wooden house was fully renovated into a modern design while maintaining the original house structure (pillars, beams, the roof, etc.) and atmosphere.

The living is floored with white thermo tiles with a set of Scandinavian furniture (sofa and TV board) and British coffee table on top.

The island kitchen area is fully equipped for cooking, which is next to the dining area with a pine made dining table and chairs and bamboo groove decoration.

The flooring bedroom contains two single beds (plus one extra bedding) and two thick curvy wooden beams can be enjoyed under the house roof. The two single beds can be combined into one extra king-size bed.

The house is also fully equipped by high-techs such as a 40 inch wide full high resolution TV, a free wireless LAN, a BOSE wireless Bluetooth speaker, a cell phone as taxi/owner pager, an air conditioner (for both summer and winter) for each of all three rooms, an automatic wash and dryer machine, toilet with washlet function. All of these will well support and entertain your life as if you were at home.

*** a little bit about myself, the owner ***
I was a mechanical engineer for eight years after university and earned an MBA from University of Michigan before joining Pricewaterhouse Coopers as management consultant. After 12 years with PwC, I moved to Kyoto to run this business (I have one more property, closer to downtown) as well as to start my own consulting company. I like travelling both domestic and overseas and love talking with all different kinds of people from different cultures. I am also a big fan of great food in Kyoto and Kansai areas.

Many of my past guests (mainly from AirBnB) who stayed for 2 weeks were very satisfied by enjoying the VERY LOCAL atmospheres including local restaurants with friendly people, the Kamogawa river park, local temples and shrines, and quite environment of the house located at the end of private alley.

I live 10 min away from the house across the Kamogawa river. Feel free to contact me any time if you have a question or need any information - I'm happy to help your life in Kyoto!
