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.

We had a wonderful time, thoughtful host with free bicycles. Room is clean and authentic. Just a bit far by walking from JR Nijo station. Very near to fire ramen.
