IchiEnSou | Wiki | Everipedia, the encyclopedia of everything


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 center 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 ( Japanese style room ) and a 7 bed mixed dormitory ( bunk bed room ).

IchiEnSou is a small guesthouse operated by a family. We hope you enjoy our relaxing and socializing environment. We place our most priority on a good night sleep for everyone at night. We kindly request to keep quiet between 23:00pm and 8:00am in the entire building as well as the neighbouring area. We start cleaning the entire house from 11:00 in the morning.

For your cancellation request, please inform us by email at least 7 days in advance. No amendment in booking details ( dates, number of beds ) is possible after making your booking through this website. Please cancel your booking once and make a new one. We are not responsible for any of the pre-paid fees in that case. If your plan is not fixed and you are likely to change your booking details, please contact us directly for your booking.
