An open-air rotenburo bath and rainfall shower

‘Yuzunoe’ is perfect for travelers wanting to experience a rotenburo outdoor bathing experience. Relax as you enjoy a beautiful view of the garden while soaking in the outdoor bath, designed to feel like an open-air rotenburo. Rejuvenate after a day of sightseeing in Kyoto with our rainfall shower.

Large kitchen space

One of the best ways to experience local Japanese culture is by food. While staying at ‘Yuzunoe’ machiya house, you have the option of preparing your own meals in the large kitchen space available. The modern kitchen is stocked with an IH stove top, microwave, toaster, rice cooker, tableware, cookware, and more. We recommend shopping at the nearby shopping arcade, or shotengai, for local produce and Japanese cuisine.

Spacious Living Room

‘Yuzunoe’ has a spacious living room to gather and relax in during your stay in Kyoto. The center of the living room features our modern take on the horigotatsu. A traditional horigotatsu is a low table with sunken floors, allowing you to sit in the traditional Japanese fashion on the floor while relaxing. Take advantage of our horigotatsu-style sofa seating to relax with a cup of tea and unwind after a day of touring Kyoto City with your friends or family.
