Welcome

Garden & Joshoan

Guest house Joshoan is a newly renovated inn. It is a traditional Japanese house which was built 100 years ago. The owner has been working in the real estate business for a long time, and found this ideal place that opened in the summer of 2014.

We have created a place to make you feel as if you were staying in Kyoto for a long time. Also, we are innovating the place every day for people who want to come back and stay here again from overseas as well as Japan.

We are located close to Kiyomizudera Temple and Sanju-sangendo Temple (about 10 min walk), and you can also walk to the traditional Gion and Kawaramachi areas. Guest house Joshoan is a surprisingly spacious oasis in the middle of a traditional old town atmosphere!

Our garden has many delightful views that you won’t see anywhere else in Kyoto. There is a big tree inside the garden, which looks like almost a forest. Inside the garden, there are traditional fox statues related to Kyoto Fushimi Inari Shrine, which you normally don’t find in a private garden.

We hope you’ll enjoy a relaxing time here!

Some day when you think you want to stay in Kyoto, we hope that this is the place you want to come back to. We will be waiting to welcome you back.

KYOTO, Higashiyama JOSHOAN
