Shoubu-an is an accommodation where you can experience the features and lifestyle of a Kyo-Machiya, the original townhouses of Kyoto. Named after the colour of the Japanese iris, a delicate bluish-purple hued flower, your stay at Shobu-an will no doubt become a highlight of your visit to Kyoto

-----ENTRANCE -----
This property has been preserved in its original state and now functions as an accommodation. A long and narrow entrance way will lead you to the kitchen tucked away in the back. To the right, you will find 2 Japanese-style rooms with enough space for you to relax comfortably

The kitchen is fitted with a sleek, black counter top and modern kitchen fixture. With enough space for you to prepare your own meals using ingredients picked up from Nishiki Market or the local supermarket, you will be able to cook a Kyoto-inspired home cooked meal any time

ESSENTIALS: refrigerator, induction heating plate, microwave, toaster, kitchen utensils, cooking ware, and enough dining ware, plates, and cups for 8 guests

The interior of Shobu-an features clean white walls with contrasting dark wooden accents, traditional tatami flooring, and latticed wooden designs throughout the house. This room is furnished with a low table, chairs, and TV

Open up the latticed sliding doors to reveal the traditional 'tsuboniwa' garden. This Japanese style garden, lit by round lanterns, and designed with stone steps and plants native to Japan, blends harmoniously with the modern interior

On the first floor, you will find a glass paned bathroom lined with black granite and cypress wood. The play with dark and light colours adds a touch of sophistication and modernity allowing guests to relax in luxury. Traditional elements can also be found as with the cypress wood

2 separate toilet areas can be found on the 1st floor
