Property Description

For the well-travelled people who appreciate traditional Japanese culture and historical Kyoto, Mosaic Machiya KSK offers the best window of insight into the mysterious Geisha world of Kamishichiken.

Our property is a renovated "Machiya", a traditional wooden Kyoto teahouse, with modern facilities and traditional tatami rooms. You get the best of both worlds. Take advantage of our on-site CafeBar used by locals and guests alike. We also have a "Goemon" Bath(A giant pot) as well as a zen-like secret garden where you can sip your morning coffee.
