BenTen West - 3-Bedroom Restored Kyoto Townhouse

Located in a quiet lane just minutes away from temples, old-world townscapes and Michelin-starred restaurants, BenTen West makes for an ideal Kyoto base whether your stay lasts for a few days or a few months.

 This 2-storey machiya has been restored to showcase the beauty of the traditional wooden townhouse. But it also offers convenience and comfort to a modern traveller through such features as heated flooring, wi-fi, a washing machine and dryer, and a fully-equipped kitchenette. (Convenience stores and a supermarket can be found just a short walk from the residence.)

 The 3 bedrooms – 1 Japanese and 1 Western on the second floor – give guests a choice between futons and beds. When not in use as a bedroom, the tatami room on the first floor serves as an extra living room.

The main living area has a view of a small garden that can also be enjoyed from the bathroom on the first floor. For the convenience of larger groups, there is a shower and another toilet on the second floor.

 BenTen West, which has a capacity of up to 5 adults, is popular with families and travellers interested in design. It has also served as a venue for cultural workshops. To find out about our special rates for venue rentals or longer-term stays, drop us a note via the Contact Us page or at
