Kyoto House きょうの家

Kyoto House きょうの家

Unwind in the liberating space.

Upon opening the door and stepping into Ieno House, you will be taken in by the unusual design of the space.   Walking through the passage to reach the tiny courtyard, you will still muse upon the wonder of the structure.  Inevitably called to the upper floor, you will open the inner window of the main bedroom to reveal the origin of this inn’s name.

As Ieno House means “the house with a house,” a cabin-like structure is nested inside the main bedroom.  Pillars and beams with the patina of age accentuate the ample space, creating modern harmony.  This unique design makes guests feel liberated while enticing them to explore the finer details of this lodge more closely.  Travelers take a journey as their heart dictates; accommodations need not follow the conventional style.

Ieno House symbolizes this unrestrictive spirit.

The main bedroom. The two double-size bed mattresses are custom-made by Simmons for Ieno House. We promise you a peaceful sleep.
The Japanese-style tatami room. This room can be used as an extra bedroom for a group of three or more. The storage space is decorated with lacquered Japanese paper, providing our guests a glimpse of traditional Japanese craftsmanship.
The living room on the first floor is spacious enough even for a large group.
Kitchen with a bar counter lies in the center of the living room. Cooking utensils are available for simple cooking during your stay.
The open-air bath in the garden. The bath tub was specially made by Hiromichi Takahashi, a ceramic artist in Yamagata Prefecture.
The shampoo, treatment, and body soap at Ieno House are made from organic, plant-based ingredients. All the towels are made in Imabari, where it is recognized as the mecca of high quality towels in Japan.
