Make a holiday rental in Kyoto, Japan your home away from home

Kyoto self-catering accommodation is set in and around a city towards the centre of the island of Honshu, Japan. Kyoto is regarded as one of the countries most attractive urban centres, boasting a host of historical buildings, dating to the time that the city was Japan’s capital.

Things to do in Kyoto, Japan

At self-catering holiday rentals in Kyoto you’ll be within reach of no fewer than 17 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and around a fifth of the country’s national treasures are located in the city. Starting with Kyoto Central, which is at the centre of the country’s capital city in the imperial times. One of the most impressive landmarks here is the Nijo Castle, constructed by the Tokugawa Shoguns and boasting beautiful gardens. It’s also known for the intricate decoration of its reception rooms.

During your stay at Kyoto holiday apartments it would be well worth heading to the east of the city, which is home to some of its most attractive locations, as well as a range of interesting sights. Perhaps the most prominent here is the Kiyomizu Temple, which comprises an expansive complex enjoying a unique vantage point with unforgettable views of the city. The best place to admire the view is from the wooden veranda of the main hall. Also part of the complex is the Otowa-no-taki, which is the waterfall for the temple, with visitors given tin cups to collect and drink the water.

In the north of the city there’s a spectacular array of visitor attractions. During your stay at a holiday rental in Kyoto the Kinkaku-ji Temple would be one of the essential sights. It’s a pavilion surrounded by water and originally constructed in the late-1300s as a retirement home for a shogun.

Our family of 4 really enjoyed our stay here. It is the most beautiful property we stayed in - every detail has been meticulously crafted. The beds were very comfortable. The dining area looks out upon a lovely little garden. The location is very convenient as well. It's an easy subway ride from Kyoto station (two subway lines, but only about 3 stops on each). There are also several excellent restaurants nearby. We enjoyed an delicious meal at Kitchen Occobe, still my favorite meal in Japan. Beer Komachi provides excellent beer and small bites, and for breakfast, we loved Le Bac a Sable. All of these places and more are within a couple minute walk from Eigetsu West. And there's a coin operated laundry just on the corner about a 40 second walk away. Walking to Gion was easy too, but it was so crowded we were grateful to be staying a little further north. I highly recommend this property & would happily stay here again. Convenient to everything, yet a world away from it all.
