1 futon set






Sen House is a recently renovated traditional Japanese House with classic Japanese colors, tatami flooring and a lovely zen garden, situated in a quiet residential area. The main living area has tatami matting, and the property has a fully modernised kitchen area with separate toilet and bathroom facilities.

Sen House is a great choice for travellers interested in nature and scenery due to the convenient access to the extremely picturesque Arashiyama district with the world famous bamboo forest. The property is also conveniently located to enjoy the culturally significant northern Kyoto area, with sights such as Ryoanji and Kinkakuji Temple (2.6km from the house), Nijo Castle (2.2km) and Kitano Tenmangu Shrine (1.9km).

The space is most comfortable for a two person stay, although two additional futon sets are stored on sight. Smoking is not permitted in the property.

Kyoto is a truly wonderful city full of culture and history. So much so, that it might be hard to know where to start. We highly recommend allocating at least 4-5 days to explore and enjoy the town, and even then you will be left wanting more!

This is a non smoking property.

Great privacy and access to public transport. The room is tidy, very home-like and with plenty of Japanese elements to it. It was definitely the best accommodation we had during our Japan trip.

Jono Hsia - April 2017

I like EVERYTHING of this house. This new house is very well designed and equipped. It is a traditional Japanese tatami style house yet equipped with modern facilities like LED TV, Panasonic audio system w/ bluetooth, Amazon TV stick, air cleaner machine, microwave, baker, etc. Very clean, cozy and convenient. Most importantly, it is very "beautiful". The finishing, furniture, the small garden give this aesthetic feeling. Staying in Sen House is one of my best experience in Kyoto.
