Since we are located perfectly in the old geisha district of Shimabara and the Kyoto Central Wholesale Market, we highly encourage our guests to visit the many small local restaurants and coffee shops in our neighborhood to get a real taste of Kyoto. As we believe that this is the best way to get an insight of local culture and daily life.


Restrooms & Showers

Our restrooms, sinks and showers are shared with other staying guests.

For a more local experience we highly recommend our guests to explore the sentô (public bath houses) in our neighbourhood after a long day of traveling. For instance the Shimabara area has four sentô that can cater to different types of needs. From small retro bath houses to bath houses with outside baths, our guests can choose through a variety of options.
