Experience a stay in a house where traditional meets modernity.
Kobai-an is a superb traditional Japanese house, located near the Gojo Station, which was renovated in 2017 by local workmen.
The ground floor provides you the same comfort as a hotel's suite room while offering you a traditional ambience.
Kobai-an takes its name from plum trees with pink blossoms, called "kobai" in Japanese. Wallpapers' design was also inspired by those trees' blossom.
The Japanese tatami room ("washitsu") on the second floor creates a unique atmosphere of Kyoto's old lifestyle.
Luxurious stay for 2, economical stay for groups and families, you will have a comfortable and pleasant stay at Kobai-an.
Our concept is to provide to our guests a memorable experience of the Japanese traditional culture while offering a comfort adapted to modern times' needs.
