Situated in the heart of Kyoto, Shikokuan is a stylish and innovative machiya accommodation located on a serene backstreet near the Takasegawa river, one of the most popular cherry blossom spots in Kyoto.

The machiya is near Gion, where Geisha are frequently spotted on Hanamikoji Street, and the traditional cobbled streets of Pontocho, which are lined with bustling restaurants and bars are also within walking distance, as are the popular shopping centers on the corner of Kawaramachi and Shijo streets and the exciting Nishiki food market.

Bus stops and train station are also within a 6 minute walking distance. Shikokuan is the perfect place to feel the energy of both modern and traditional Kyoto.As the river flows through the center of the street, during the spring the cherry blossoms that line the river are lit up at night while in the winter white veils of snow create an enchanting sight.
