The surrounded area of our house is not crowded by tourists, is also a advantage for you to enjoy the calm daily life of local people.

Inside the house has been designed with the image of a Japanese tea‐ceremony room (chashitsu), to provide our guests the simple but cozy Japanese cultural atmosphere at home.

This house is a two story building with living room, kitchen, bath, toilet etc. in the first floor and two bed rooms in the second floor. we are Newly renovated and the house is very clean and new.

We have futons (beds) up to 5 guests. We of cause welcome you all and very much recommend for families with children. Since we are in the middle of a typical very friendly and strongly connected local community, you could enjoy the hospitality of Kyoto citizens.

We wish you to spend relaxed during your stay and we are very glad if you feel this place as your own home in Kyoto.

We wish your stay in Kyoto will be a one with lots of lovely serendipity. From that meaning we named this house "Serendipity @ Kyoto"

Our house "Serendipity Kyoto" is a licensed accommodation where you can stay with more trust, more safety and more security.
