Hana-Touro Stay Yasakano-tou Machiya Premium



This Machiya-style property is very unique, stylish, and cool.  The location is absolutory the best.  It wouldn’t be luxury, but if you love Kyoto, it’s truly worth staying there.  Just hanging out around the property made us feel so nostalgic.  We have visited many times around Kiyomizu temple but we felt like we lived in Kyoto for long years during our stay.  We really got much of an immersive “Kyoto Experience” as we expected.  Also we fully enjoyed awesome views from a room and a terrace.  I’m sure that you must excite to explore while taking a walk around there.  This is a definitely spectacular place in Kyoto.  If you stay at the property, you wouldn’t need to travel far as there are many sports within walking distance.  If you plan to stay there, you may want to book the villa more than 2 nights at least.  One night stay wouldn’t be enough.  On the other hand, if you are looking for an authentic Machiya property, this is not.  I would rather recommend staying at Jeugiya.  The location is near Hana-Touro Stay Yasakano-tou Machiya Premium. Anyway this is a two-story villa.  Overall, it tends to be not user-friendly, but really cozy.  Facilities tend to be the latest.  Floor heating is installed on 1F and 2F.  All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries and yukatas.  Also there is a small kitchen with a microwave, a fridge, an electric kettle, an IH cooking heater, a coffee machine, dishes, and a Japanese tea set, etc.  Then a humidifier, a DVD player, a CD player, and a washing machine with dryer are placed.  Also Wifi reception was good.  TV signal was bad, though.  Then the property is not universal design.  I wouldn’t recommend it if you bring small kids or people with weak feet.  There are some steps in the villa.  Then there is no option for meals served.  Room service is not available.  Actually there are many restaurants, cafes, shops, convenience stores around the property, but most of them are open from 10:00AM or 11:00AM except fast-food restaurants.  That’s why, we went to Kyoto Station for breakfast as some cafés were open from 7:00AM.  Then the property is located a 20-minute walk from Kiyomizu Gojo Station or Gion Shijo Station JR Kyoto Station can be reached within a 10-minute drive or taxi ride.   It costs less than 1,000JPY.  If you have a lot of luggage, you may want to take a taxi from Kyoto Station.  There are many stone-paved streets around the property.  Anyway the best season to stay there would be in spring or fall.  The weather is just nice during the seasons.  On the other hand, I wouldn’t recommend visiting Kyoto City in the summer season unless you join the summer festivals in Gion.  It’s too hot and humid between early July and mid Sep.  It would be very hard to walk outside under the blazing sun, especially small kids and elderly people.  Then, if you stay there, don’t forget to visit Kiyomizu Temple in the early morning.  It’s open from 6:00AM.  The atmosphere is very special, solemn and serene.  There would be few people there before 8:00AM.  You can see “True Kyoto”.  The early bird catches the worm.  At last, don’t forget to check a weather forecast before booking a room.  You can enjoy viewing charming Kyoto City at the open terrace which is called Tsukimidai while drinking beer.  It couldn’t be better.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about the property from the below space.  *Please note that most of TAXI drivers wouldn’t know it.  You might want to show a map where it’s located.   **All information is as of the date that I posted on my blog.  ***Check in and out times 2:00PM/10:00AM   You need to inform staff of your expected arrival time when you book a room.  If you check in after 18:00, you need to inform staff of it in advance.   Check Availability and Pricing for the property on Booking.com
