Coming to study or work in Kyoto can be a stressful endeavor, specially at the beginning stage. Looking for a place to rent, taking care of all the required costs and documentations, making sure the property is located conveniently, all this can be a little overwhelming. In order to allow our residents peace of mind, easiness and transparency, we keep our move-in procedures simple, just as we have been doing for over 25 years.

The house location is right at the center of the city, making it easy to access any corner of Kyoto while also allowing quick access to other areas of interest in the Kansai area.

Groups of students/workers may also find this property quite convenient and affordable, while keeping the whole rental process simple and clear.

Groups can enjoy having the entire place for themselves if they rent all beds.
