Top 19 Traditional Japanese-Style Airbnbs in Kyoto

Traditional Japanese Style Airbnbs in Kyoto

Machiya are traditional Japanese wooden townhouses. Scattered initially throughout Japan, they lost popularity when the country began pushing for the Modernization of their architecture. Thankfully, some cities like Kyoto partook in preservation programs that allowed these accommodations to withstand the test of time. If you have the chance to visit Kyoto, you will be immersed in facets of historical Japanese culture and traditions that you will rarely get to experience anywhere else. Machiya Airbnbs are an excellent way to explore some of these aspects. They mix traditional craftsmanship with modern comfort. A good portion of the ones in this list also offer small at-home onsens as they have hinoki baths available to you.

+Please note that there is a ¥200 (1.93$) Kyoto city tax fee per person per night on most accommodations in this city.
