Recommended place to stay in Kyoto- Japanese Machiya house Bonborian


Machiya, old traditional Japanese house, has been renovated, so that you can enjoy the atmosphere of old traditional Kyoto, but be surrounded by all the necessary modern necessities like WIFI, kitchen, washing machine, etc.

By staying in Bonborian at the heart of Kyoto, in the Higashiyama area, close to Kiyomizu temple and Yasaka shrine, not to mention all the dining options neaby, you can really enjoy the excitement on foot, as well as the tranquility of the place, by taking a stroll early morning, without the crowds.  It really feels very peacful and quiet.
