Good value to stay in traditional JP house. Excellent service and nice clean room. Close to Kitano Tenmangu-mae. On the way to Kitano Tenmangu-mae, there are some good shops and nice restaurant. Good to walk around KIOTO and experience Kyoto. Feel comfortable to stay in KIOTO like home.

Staying in Nishijin District

Neighbourhood Profile
Nishijin District
A district with a long textile heritage, ancient Kyoto is still alive in the Nishijin District. Studded with its weaving factories, tea houses, and onsen, the neighborhood is charming and peaceful with a self-possessed air. Less traveled than other parts of the city, it is a district where you can take it at your own pace. Visitors can explore the many weaving and cloth houses, the free kimono shows, and the many shops selling traditional clothing and goods. Showcasing architecture with sloping roofs and wooden reliefs dating to decades past, the streets in the Nishijin District transport you back in time, making them a joy to wander.
