The Senraku House motto is: “experience ‘living in Kyoto,’ not ‘visiting Kyoto.’” And true to this credo, the holiday home rental presents a culturally immersive experience within one of the world’s most beloved cities.
Situated in the heart of downtown Kyoto, a stay at Senraku House gives guests easy access to much of the city’s offerings. Walk to the nearby Nijo Castle, or take a short train ride to the Kiyomizu Temple, the Gion Geisha District, or the Yasaka Shrine, just to name a few. Day trips to neighboring towns Nara, Ohara, and Osaka are also a breeze with Senraku House as your basecamp.
The house itself underwent a sleek renovation in 2011 that preserved the original building’s authenticity, while injecting it with luxe updates. Chocolatey brown accents bring a rich warmth to the wooden and a white interiors, setting a scene of serenity throughout. Traditional sliding doors called Shoji bisect the cozy rooms, creating intimate spaces for reading, relaxing, and tea time.
Senraku House provides the perfect place for a traditional Japanese experience that will have you feeling like a resident instead of a tourist.
