Marutake An is right by the famous world heritage, Nijo Castle. I have renovated this traditional machiya inherited from my ancestors as a guesthouse. In the house, there are beautiful pots that my family has kept for years. Right outside the main entrance of the house is the backyard of Nijo Castle, and it is perfect for jogging and taking quiet walks early in the morning. We have a parking lot around the corner from the house for guests who arrive by car.
This house is a government approved guesthouse so it is safe and reliable. I hope all my guests enjoy their stay in this house that I love.

Interaction with guests
Please let me know if you have any questions during your stay.
Hello, I’m Ichi! I was born and raised in Kyoto. I used to be a bank clerk before, but I am currently managing Kyoto traditional houses (machiya). Kyoto has many sightseeing spots, but once you enter the alleyway, it has been a very relaxing time. I would be happy if you could feel such a calm time flow at this "Marutake An". Please come and stay at my place.
