BETTEI ABURANOKOJI

BETTEI ABURANOKOJI

Close to the world heritage sites Nijo Castle, Higashihonganji and Nishihonganji !

Bettei Aburanokoji is 10-minutes on foot from the subway Gojo station. It is located between Nishi-Hongwan-ji Temple, a UNESCO world heritage site and Higashi-Hongwan-ji Temple. During the Gion Festival (one of the most famous festivals in Japan) two giant floats are parked near the house. They are called Taishi-Yama and Aburatenjin-Yama. Both Nijo-jo Castle and To-ji Temple are only 10 minutes away from the house by bicycle. The Matsubara shopping street where the locals do their daily shopping is nearby. This is a lovely area to wander around, stop off at a classic Japanese sweet or tea shop for a rest. If you are hungry pop into an Okonomiyaki restaurant. The house is decorated with antique furniture and has a Shigaraki ware bath tub. We have done everything we can to retain the ambiance of old Japan.
Kimono or Yukata (a casual summer kimono) are available for rent at our office at Kyoto station.
※ On our pictures you might see images of parties or games occuring in the evening but this could create a lot of noise and disturb the neighbors and is therefore prohibited.
