The house is named after the statue in the small house called “Jizo” (地蔵) just beside our lovely small Japanese garden.

We’re conveniently located in Southern Higashiyama (Eastern Kyoto City) – one of the most important sightseeing districts in Kyoto! This spacious two floor house accommodates up to 5 people. The upper level is an open design with tatami mats (traditional Japanese straw mats), hardwood floor, sliding doors, and a great view of the mountains and tile-roof houses. The lower floor has the bathroom with separate toilet and bathing area, kitchen, a Living Room and another tatami room. The house is decorated in the Japanese style. We also use Japanese bedding, collectively called Futon. You will sleep in Futon on the tatami mats, which is the Japanese style. We also have one Room equipped with 2 western style single Beds.
