Spacious Modern Suite with Traditional Touch of Kyoto

A beautiful interior that mixes charming Japanese heritage with modern fittings, paying immaculate attention to detail.

Photos are absolutely accurate to the beauty of this house. The place was immaculate and beautifully decorated. It is the perfect mix of traditional and modern. We loved the little atrium between the dining room and bedroom. Also the shower and bath in particular were fantastic! We had ample space and all the amenities were in perfect working order. “
