Kyoto, Kyoto, Japan
Spacious bright studio right in the historical downtown grid of Kyoto, minutes from Shijo-Karasuma subway and Hankyu train station, a short walk to Kyoto main station. Step out onto lively narrow streets full of shops, restaurants, cafes, and temples and then return home to a calm oasis for a quiet comfortable stay. This bright comfortable studio (22 square meters + narrow balcony) has air conditioning/heating, a new double bed, small kitchen for hot drinks and simple meals (mini-refrigerator, electric kettle, IH hot plate), eating/writing area, sofa, shower/bath, and a closet with a bit of storage. There is also a single futon for those who wish to sleep separately. We have deliberately tried to keep the furnishing spare for maximum light and space. The apartment includes a washing machine for clothes, and a rack to dry them inside or on the balcony. There is also a neighborhood laundromat for large-scale drying. The apartment is located off-street, with virtually no traffic/street noise. Sliding glass doors open onto a balcony overlooking tiled rooftops. Guests at the nearby 5-star Princess Nikko Hotel love this neighborhood, and so do we. Although we are close to the main artery of Karasuma, our narrow one-way street is surprisingly quiet. The neighborhood has a balanced mix of residential housing and small businesses, and of old and new. Many of the apartments are modern, but they are built according to the historical city plot structure of urban Kyoto, narrow but deep. There is an important neighborhood temple adjacent to our street. Coffee shops (including Starbucks), convenience stores, and cheap places to eat line Karasuma, and there are countless other restaurants and cafes on the side streets, a fair number of them in traditional machiya. Minimum 1-month stay. Standard Japanese rental contract required. * Our preference is for bookings that roughly begin at the start of the calendar month, although there is some flexibility, especially if your booking is significantly longer.
