About this listing

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.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Beautiful traditional Japanese home. Equipped with modern amenities-microwave/washer dryer was extremely useful. Very clean and cosy. This is great if you're looking for a more residential and quiet area to unwind after a long day of travelling. Very nice neighborhood. Supermarket and convenience store less than 5 minute walk away. Super cute coffee spot and home-cooked style restaurant around the corner. Was a little tight for a family of 4 but we enjoyed it the entire experience. The place exceeded our expectation and definitely come back.

It was a really nice place to stay in Kyoto. Very near to Nijo castle and bus station. But it will take a bit longer distance from Nijo JR station. Also it's a bit crowded for 4 people.

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.


We prepared the japanese item “UCHIWA”. This is available only during summer. Please take free. (From Ichi, 7 JUL 2017)
