The name for this beautifully refurbished Machiya (townhouse) is derived from its lovely small garden, covered with moss. Koke, meaning moss, has been used in Japanese Zen gardens for centuries, providing an unparalleled serene and tranquil atmosphere. This house is located in a little hideaway alley, ensuring a quiet relaxing surrounding, yet allowing immediate access to the middle of Kyotos historical district of Higashiyama (Eastern Mountains). Hei-An means the house of Peace is the same prononciation as the nearby famous Shrine-HeiAn Shrine.
The unbeatable location is on the corner of Sanjo Dori (the last station on the old Tokaido road, connecting Tokyo and Kyoto in the Edo period) and Jingu Michi (with a view of one of Japans biggest shrine gates).
The convenience of its location means that you can drop in the middle of the day, have a rest, take a nap, shower, change clothes or have a cup of tea and still be central enough to continue with your travels. Within 2 minutes walk, there is a subway station, 24hr convenience stores and a variety of restaurants within 15 meters, while the house remains perfectly quite and secluded!
Some of Kyotos highlights such as Chion in Temple Maruyama Park, Philosophers Walk, Heian Shrine, and Nanzen-ji Temple, Gion Geisha district and many more are all an easy stroll away from the house. There are many unique cafes, antique shops and specialty shops that make sweets, incense and bags from old kimonos. Also close by are the Higashiyama Mountains that have superb hiking, which you can access with the excellent maps that are supplied in the house.
