Aoi Kyoto Stay



 Aoi Kyoto Stay has 6 townhouses in Kyoto city.  Among them, in particular, I would highly recommend booking “Aoi Kamogawa-tei” if you are going to stay here.  Others wouldn’t be special.  You will be able to take it easy and drink beer at a balcony while viewing Kamo River.  That’s the precious time.  It would be for couples, family or groups, not solo travelers.  Actually if this is your first visit here, you won’t be able to find the place easily as the building surprisingly blends into private properties in the neighborhood.  Also there is no sign board, no clue or something to find it.  When we visited here, we passed by the property many times even though we checked a map very carefully.  Nobody including us imagines that this townhouse would be “Aoi Kamogawa-tei”.  *Refer to the second photo attached the above.  Unexpectedly the environment around here is just like a downtown.  Once you recognize this is the one which you are looking for, you may want to cry in front of the house, and you may be totally disappointed.  However, don’t worry.  Once you open the door, amazingly it’s like you’re in another world. The ambience with antique furniture, interior, decorations, and the latest facilities is truly includible!  You cannot judge a book by its cover. Overall, the property tends to be chic, clean, and stylish. It’s a lovely place and really well-designed.  The owner would be an antique collector.  If you are keen on Japanese culture, architecture, and history, you must stay here.  You won’t get bored during stay.  On the other hand, if you want to experience warm Japanese hospitality in Kyoto, I wouldn’t recommend it.  I would rather recommend Kyonoyado Gekkoan.  Only my issue is that breakfast was not nice.  We asked staff to arrange delivery food for breakfast.  *The management has a contract catering shop.   I wouldn’t recommend it.   Then the location wouldn’t be very Kyoto.  Therefore if you want to spend time in a very Kyoto atmosphere, I would rather recommend staying in Higashiyama area, such as Jeugiya or Hana-Touro Stay Yasaka-no-tou Machiya Premium.  You must feel like a SAMURAI.  Anyway the best season to stay at Aoi Kyoto Stay would be in early to mid April.  It’s really worth it.  You will be able to unwind at the terrace under the sun while viewing beautiful SAKURA.  Also if you stay here in spring or fall, you might want to get bicycles for rent to explore in Kyoto city.  You must be so excited!   The weather is just nice during the seasons.  Also you will be able to avoid traffic jams when you move in the city by bicycle during busy seasons.  At last, Aoi Kamogawa-tei is very popular at the present.  If it’s fully booked, I would also recommend Aoi Hotel Kyoto, Yado Kiramachi Ryokan or Kiraku Kyoto Aneyakoji.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about the property from the below space.  *All information is as of the date that I posted on my blog.  Check Availability and Pricing for the property on or Agoda
