What kind of machiya-style villa is Jeugiya?

This is an amazing traditional villa in Kyoto.  If you love Kyoto, you should stay here.  Perhaps if you want to get an authentic machiya-style villa adventure in Kyoto, I would recommend it.  It’s truly worth staying here.  Actually, this is not ryokan-style.  This is like a holiday home in Kyoto.  If this is your first time staying at traditional Japanese-style houses or ryokans, I would recommend it.  Facilities tend to be the latest.  The housekeeping was excellent.  The surrounding neighborhood is so quiet.  You wouldn’t feel any stress during your stay.  The ambiance is charming, quaint, and modern.  Everything, such as architecture, furniture, small gardens, and decorations is impeccable.  We felt the luxury and authenticity at once.  The property would be great for couples, families, or groups, but not families with small kids, or not solo travelers.  *A minimum age requirement of 12 applies

Is the location easy to access?

Yes, it would be easy if you take a taxi from Kyoto Station.    It takes 15min by car.  It costs around JPY1,500.  Most of the taxi drivers wouldn’t know the property.  You may want to show a map of where it is located.  Alternatively, it takes 15min on foot from Gion-Shijo Station.   It’s not great access to public transportation, though.

How about the villa?

Once you enter the property, you may want to get lazy at the ENGAWA which is a Japanese-style terrace while viewing a small well-maintained traditional garden. That’s precious time.  You will never get tired of the views.  Then the authentic wooden bathtub is installed in the bathroom.  You can relax while soaking in the bath after a long day out.

How about toiletries & in-room amenities?

All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, yukatas, pajamas, and a Japanese tea set.  The free WiFi reception was good.  Then Jeugiya is not a universal design.  If you bring people with weak feet, you should find others. Then there is a convenience store nearby.

How about meals?

The food experience for breakfast was nice.  You need to order it in advance if you want to try.  The staff offers a boxed-style breakfast.  It costs 3,000JPY per adult.  *Please note that inform the staff when you book a room with breakfast if you have any food allergies.  They probably wouldn’t be able to prepare alternative food if you request on that day.   Then dinner is not offered on the property, but there are many restaurants, shops, and cafes around here.  Most of them are open from 11:00 AM except for fast food shops.  You may want to book a villa with breakfast.

My impressions

The most important I would like to highlight is the owner is welcoming, helpful, and warm.  Also, he is very informative.  If this is your first time visiting Kyoto, you might want to ask him about recommended spots, restaurants, or events, etc.  Overall, Jeugiya has great value for money if you are a group or family.  Then the best season to stay here would be absolutely in spring or fall.  You can see many breathtaking views while taking a walk around here.  Then if you are lucky, you may see genuine Maikos.  You have many chances to see fake ones around Kiyomizu Temple in the daytime, though.  If you want to see genuine Maikos, you might want to visit around Hanamikouji Dori or Miyakawa-Cho near the property between 17:00 and 18:00.  There would be many amateur photographers standby around there.   Then if you stay at Jeugiya, you wouldn’t need to travel far as there are many wonderful spots within walking distance.  I’m sure that you must be so excited while hanging out around here.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about Jeugiya from the below space.  You need to inform the staff of your expected arrival time in advance.  The owner will be standing by at the property.  Check Availability and Pricing for the property on
