We are located in 2 minutes walk from one of the main subway station in Kyoto and main shopping areas. Numerous famous temples, shrines, and Geisha district, called Gion are within walking distance. Since it is easy to access JR Kyoto station, you can easily make day trips to Nara and Osaka.

We renovated more than 100-year-old traditional wooden townhouse as a cheap hostel. We wish to offer travelers an opportunity to meet Japanese culture, exchange cultural experiences, and make new friends. Friendly English speaking staffs are there with up-to-date local travel information. We do our best to make your stay in Kyoto as enjoyable and memorable as possible.
