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.

The Appartment it,s nice , clean , has all what you need and it,s good located. You don,t need to walk far to go shopping or for take the bus , where you have many options to move to the main station or to go to me main street . Yuta it,s very friendly. He taked care how we feel us during our stay in Kyoto and he was allways ready to help us in any question that we have. If I come back to Kyoto I will not hesitate to stay again in his Appartment. I highly recommend him.

It was clean and comfortable. but it was narrow a space to live with 3 people including me. Other than that, I am definitely satisfied with this.
