Experience the luxury of a traditional Kyoto townhouse

Iori townhouses have been lovingly restored and decorated with fine Asian art and antiques, bringing out the natural beauty of each space. Guests are able to enjoy a traditional atmosphere with all of the modern comforts of home.

What is Iori Machiya Stay?

Relax in Your Own House

In contrast to the limited privacy experienced at a traditional ryokan inn, Iori machiya guests may come and go freely, using the houses as their own.

Rental Agreement Basis

Iori machiya are rented to guests for just one night or longer, under a short-term lease agreement basis.

From Cosy Homes to Rambling Mansions

Our machiya can provide accommodation for one guest or up to groups of 14, depending on the house.

Furnishing & Amenities

We have preserved the old beauty of each house, but added modern comforts such as radiant in-floor heating, Broadband wireless internet access, air-conditioning, and state-of-the art bathroom fixtures.
