Welcome to Murasakino!
Murasakino Guesthouse is a family run cozy guesthouse located just north of central Kyoto in a peaceful residential area where guests can experience the life of locals. The house itself is over 80 years old and is build in the old traditional style of Machiya house; wooden frame and pillars supporting bamboo and earthen walls. We have taken great care to preserve the authentic old style atmosphere while at the same time providing modern day comforts such as western style toilet and modern bathing facility. It is suitable for couple, family or small group who would like to spend quiet and relaxing time away from the noisy city center. It is our hope that Murasakino Guesthouse will be your home away from home.

- Please keep noise down after 10 pm and before 8 am so as not to disturb the neighbors.
- Please remove your shoes in the entryway before entering the house.
- Smoking is strictly forbidden in the house, gardens or on the street in front of the house. There is smoking area less than a minute away from the house.
