Kyōto Zen House

About Kyōto Zen House

Kyōto Zen House offers fully equipped rental houses directly accessible with no key money and deposit.

Kyōto Zen House owners are deeply interested in Japanese culture and architecture, and want to provide comfortable accommodation for people who share their passion.

The ethic behind Kyōto Zen House is to revitalize, restore and up-cycle vacant houses (akiya 空き家) in Kyoto. Houses proposed on our network are different types of traditional townhouses, machiya 町家.

Our houses can be rented monthly or on a weekly base price depending on the season and the occupancy. They are private houses with fixed term lease contracts.
