About IchiEnSou

Please read the following information before making your booking with us.

IchiEnSou is located in an idyllic location, one street off the main street in the most famous Geisha district in Kyoto, called Gion. The city centre and numerous famous temples and shrines are also within 5 minute walk.

IchiEnSou was renovated in late 2007 to make your stay as comfortable as possible and yet retain the original features of the original house which was built during the 1920's. We have a 4 bed female dormitory and a 7 bed dormitory.

We are very pleased to help you plan your time in Kyoto and make your stay as memorable experience as possible while at IchiEnSou.

IchiEnSou is a small guesthouse operated by a family. We hope you enjoy our relaxing and socializing environment. However, we place our most priority on a good night sleep for everyone. We kindly request to keep quiet between 23:00pm and 8:00am in the entire building as well as the neighbouring area. If you would like to stay up late for drinking, our guesthouse is not suitable for your needs.

For your cancellation request (also any changes in your booking details), please inform us by email at least 7 days in advance.

On this website, we DO NOT accept group bookings with more than 3 people . Please contact us directly if you would like to make a group booking.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

We stayed two nights at IchiEnSou Guesthouse and it was an absolutely lovely experience. The guesthouse has one 4-bed female dorm room, a 6-bed mixed dorm room, and shared restroom, kitchen and dining areas. The location is ideal in central Kyoto (near cultural sites such as temples, Minamiza Theatre, and the Kyoto Museum of Contemporary Art, as well as major shopping intersections like Shijo Kawaramachi). Instructions on how to find the guesthouse is included in the confirmation email (print it out and bring it with you, otherwise, the location may be a little difficult to find). Yashi, the house manager, was a wonderful host and extremely helpful with sightseeing tips and suggestions. He also made us a delicious breakfast catering to vegetarian diets! There is free Internet access at the guesthouse, which is helpful in planning out your day or keeping in touch with friends and family. The prices are reasonable (approx. $35/person/night for us) and the accommodation is superb. I would definitely recommend staying at IchiEnSou Guesthouse when visiting Kyoto!

IchiEnSou is essentially the perfect hostel if you are travelling to Kyoto. It is spotlessly clean and has a wonderfully warm and relaxing atmosphere. It is located within easy walking distance of sightseeing attractions, fantastic shopping and transport routes. Fantastic place!
