It’s whole house rent guest house with two stories and spacious rooms. It allows to stay up to 9 people in the guest house.

‘Oinai’ means ‘Come here’ in Kyoto dialects. It is renovated to be the place where people gather and make one step forward. 

Oinai Guest House Taruya-cho looks like it has the traditional machiya style from the outside, but you’ll find it has a sense of modern designs when you enter the guest house.

It was renovated by the architectural design company. They made the house has the sense of fun in its interior design within Japanese traditional architectural style such as the zen garden.

There are two spacious living rooms next to the kitchen on the 1st floor.

The kitchen is very spacious for a Japanese traditional house, which is usually has a smaller kitchen.

It has two sinks , and the cooking tools and table wares are fully equipped – the important thing if you love cooking when you travel !

Perfect rooms to relax and even spark your ideas.

On the 2nd floor, there are two bed rooms with Japanese style futon mattress and with beds.

Both has windows to let the sunlight and the outside air in. Japanese style room has alcove space as you can see in the picture below.

There is another unique room with high round ceiling on the 2nd floor. 

You don’t feel that you’re in the same house since this room is separated from the other two bed rooms. It’s unusual to machiya Japanese house to have round shaped ceiling, and the white painted ceiling and walls. 

You can relax here sitting on the tetra shaped sofa while reading a book, or even work on your PC. Spending a time in this atmosphere would give you new ideas for your work.
