The Gion House has opened on October 2011, and a traditional Japanese 'machiya' is centrally-located in Gion. The Gion House was designated Gion historic district building by Kyoto City Government. The Gion House was built in 1892, and was completely restored under the supervision of Kyoto City Government, and it was stand up for historical Gion principle. It is rented an entire house. Our quests may come and go freely, using the house as their own. It is rented to guests for just minimum 5 nights or longer, under a short-term lease agreement basis.
The restoration was a labor of love, requiring the participation of artisans specializing in traditional carpentry Kyoto style techniques, and using natural materials in all areas both inside and out. Great efforts were made to recreate an atmosphere, which will allow guests to experience the traditional way of living.
