Welcome in kimono
When you come to our office for the check-in procedure, the landlady or a member of the staff will wait for you wearing kimono.
Kyoto is the city the most suited for kimono.
Even if you are here for a short time please try to feel how beautiful and strong is the kimono culture.
At naokonoza we want to support the kimono culture and transmit the delightful experience of wearing kimono and started a service to rent them. The dressing up occurs at the check-in counter.
Right after you arrive at Kyoto Station you can change your clothes to wear kimono and go sightseeing.
With a focus on silk, retro kimono, our kimono and obi belts were all chosen with great care.
The landlady herself put much effort and love to find the kimonos. During summer, you can enjoy the lightness of yukata.
Shigaraki ceramic bathtub
Having a bath becomes something special in our Shigaraki ceramic bathtub. There is a far infrared effect to warm your body from the inside. It is very relaxing. Do as the Japanese do, have the water a little hotter and spend longer in the bath than usual. There is a nice view of the interior garden from the bathroom. We also use the product of the shop “Kyoto Shabonya” called Wayu.Bi (medicinal bath product that contains hibiscus, rose, peach leaves and kitayama cypress)
Kiyomizu-Pottery tea bowls
Mr. & Mrs. Horioka's ceramic art atelier DOSEN, is near Chishakuin Temple. Our tea bowls are created by them.
Each bowl feels comfortable to hold and they all have beautiful designs.
Drinking from these bowls makes tea time more precious.
You can buy their products, or even join their one day trial class and make your own to take home.
We have picked with great care comfortable bedding that will ensure you a sound sleep.
The bed cover full of feathers and the silk floss futon were made with the traditional technique of Kyoto.
Beautiful antique furniture
In each house enjoy the antique furniture. We have collected Taisho-era furnishings which were in vogue when these houses were in use.
Fabric items like curtains, TV covers and so on are made from antique Kimono fabric.
Enjoy the ambience of bygone days in the house.
