Guest House Kyoto Shirakawa
Welcome to Kyoto Shirakawa!
Thank you very much for visiting the official page of "Guest House Kyoto Shirakawa".
Kyoto-Shirakawa is a guest house where machiya (Japanese traditional house) was built almost 100 years ago.
Machiya is a traditional wooden architectural style that can be seen in central Kyoto.The machiya layout allows people to live their daily lives and operate their businesses in the same building. Machiya in Kyoto is especially called "Kyo-machiya." Because of their long and narrow shapes, the machiya houses are nicknamed "beds for eels."
Some machiya houses have been renovated and converted into restaurants, cafes or hotels for visitors to enjoy. Kyoto-shirakawa is also so.
There are a lot of sightseeing spots around Kyoto-Shirakawa. Make a reservation at our hotel on your next trip to Kyoto. We look forward to offering you our service and hospitality.
＊We close the guesthouse on Nov. 30th, 2020. Thank you very much for your support
