Suisen-Kyo Holiday Rentals

Places to stay with character in and around Kyoto

Welcome to Suisen-Kyo.  If you are looking for accommodation with character and style in Kyoto, you’ve come to the right place.  

All of our rentals are private single-group rentals with private bath/shower and kitchen. The Kamo house and Shirakawa machiya rental have free WiFi as well.  

***  Three choices for travelers who want to stay in the Real Kyoto: ***
The Kamo house is a private cottage on the banks of the Kamo River, available for weekly rental (minimum stay one week)  It is located 20 minutes from downtown Kyoto city by bicycle, and it comes with two bicycles free of charge.  It is perfect for a couple or a family with one or two children.  Convenient access to Kyoto buses and subway.  It may be hard to believe you can stay in the middle of a large international city, yet listen to the birds, frogs, and water of the river as you drift off to sleep. 

The Shirakawa machiya townhouse is a centrally located private house, only walking distance from the subway and the Heian Jingu Shrine.  Though it is virtually downtown, it is in a quiet and peaceful district near the Shirakawa canal.  There are two rooms on the second floor, one Japanese style ‘tatami’ room, and one western style room with a double bed.  The first floor has a living room and a kitchen-dining area as well as a bathroom and a small garden.

The Hanase countryside getaway is a traditional renovated farmhouse along the headwaters of the Kami-Katsura River, a peaceful retreat suitable for groups large or small.  It is located about 31 km north of Demachiyanagi Station, about 1.5 hours by city bus (930 yen).  There are many seasonal highlights, from blooming flowers and cherry trees to deer, salamanders, and wild boar.  There’s plenty of snow from January to March as well!



The meaning comes from the characters for Daffodil + hometown
