KiYOMiZU Exec. is a place that embodies the essence of Kyoto with all the perks of western life. This Kyoto Machiya has been around for over a 100 years and its walls know secrets that they will never share with anyone. The basic concept has not changed but the facilities have become quite modern so that you're comfortable during your stay in Kyoto no matter what season you come.
Come and create memories within these walls and see the beauty of Kyoto that resides directly around this beautiful estate.
I grew up in Canada, went to school in the United States and have spent the last 15 years of my life in Kyoto. I fell in love with this city, its temples, shrines and festivals within my first few years here and don't think I'll ever leave.
Ken purchased this house in 2014
This house is between the Takase and the Kamo rivers in Kyoto. It offers cherry blossoms in Spring, fireflies in early summer, beautiful leaves in Autumn. This house is in a wonderful area. Easily accessible in a quiet and safe neighborhood.
It is half way between downtown Kyoto and Kyoto station. You can walk almost anywhere. There are restaurants and sight-seeing spots galore all around this house. The house is in one of the most traditional neighborhoods in Kyoto with sweet neighbors on either side.
This house not only has all the amenities of your home, but also lots of extras to make your stay in Kyoto not only traditional, but also comfortable.
Fantastic location (central) in a fantastic loaction. Quiet neighborhood and traditional neighbors. Well equipped facilities and lots of helpful information to make your stay in Kyoto memorable.
Reservations for taxis and restaurants upon request
More .... just ask!
The Kiyomuzi Machiya was certainly accurately described. It was charming as well as modern.
Ken left a handy map with some tips for nearby attractions, we really loved the garden at Shoeisien.
Close to lots of interesting sights in walking distance and easy public transport for places further afield.
All the amenities of the house were clean and functioning well. Especially the bathrooms, they were great. The futons were also very comfortable. Highly recommended
We were happy to find that the pictures didn't do justice to this beautiful home. It was clean, spacious and very comfortable. Ken was very kind, helpful, and prompt in getting back to me.
We brought our children to Japan to experience the culture. This home was the perfect compliment to that end. The house is clean and well appointed. While the futons and low table made us feel like we were living in the past, the new cutting edge appliances made us comfortable. (Excellent dishwasher, clothes washer, TVs, toaster over, stove, etc.) The home has only 2 toilets and all the beds are traditional futons on the tatami mat covered floors. We found the futons surprisingly comfortable. Ken is helpful and supplied us anything we needed promptly. The neighborhood is friendly. You can walk to almost anything you need or get a cab easily to visit sites. Don't miss the tavern around the corner (left out of the house). Delicious local sake and family style food. It was one of our favorite restaurants in Japan.
We would recommend this home to anyone traveling to Kyoto looking for a traditional Japanese experience. We will never forget the Machiya!
This is a fabulous house in a great location. We were 2 families and the house had plenty of space to accomodate all of us, including 5 bedrooms, a great kitchen, dining and TV area. All the information provided on the sight was accurate with the owner provided plenty of information before we committed to booking the house for our stay.
The house is situated in a quiet area of Gion, 15 minute walk from Kyoto station and about the same to the central shopping area of Gion, with bus and subway stations a short walk away.
Ken is a fantastic host and was available when ever we needed help, including finding us a restaurant late on New Years Eve when our original booking cancelled on us, he managed the impossible. Thank you Ken for making our stay in Kyoto so wonderful, I highly recommend this house, and will look to stay again next time in Kyoto
A wonderful stay and experience staying at Kiyomizu Exec! Located in a quiet but convenient residential area only a short walk from key areas in Kyoto. A great area to also hire a bike and explore. As noted by other reviews, Ken (the owner) was very responsive, flexible and went out of his way to help during our stay. This machiya is unqiue and very convenient for groups because it has several bathrooms and lots of space. Highly recommended.
We couldn't have been more delighted with our stay in Kyoto. It all centered around the beautiful Machiya that was at the heart of our comings and goings.
Meeting the owner, Ken, was a real pleasure and added bonus. He took the time to guide us around the neighborhood and gave much insight to the history and culture of Kyoto.
Ken gave great advice, pointed out details of the neighborhood that only a local could, and let his passion for the city shine. He is interesting and charming, as well!
The house seems like an extension of him in its detail and refinement. It was very large, meticulously maintained, well laid out, and built with the utmost care and finest materials. Truly a labor of love.
We could not have been more thrilled and truly amazed by our Kyoto experience. We can't wait to plan more time there and look forward to our next Kiyomizu stay!
There are so many beautiful temples and shrines, not to mention 17 UNESCO World Heritage sites in Kyoto.
This house is within walking distance to many temples, shrines, gardens and lots of hiking paths.
The neighborhood is old and sweet with lots of kind locals. There are very few untouched areas in Kyoto and this is one of them. If you want an authentic Japanese experience, you're going to love this area for its serenity and safety.
