Within a few seconds’ walk from bustling Yasaka Street, Nozomu House is tucked away in a quiet alleyway. This convenient hideaway inn boasts an expansive and dramatic open-air bath, with an upstairs window offering a splendid view of the Yasaka-no-to Pagoda.
You may remember having looked up the pagoda from the crowded street. However, viewing the pagoda from the window may give you a somewhat different impression; appearing rather intimate. This abrupt change in perspective will draw you in.
Unwinding in this inn, you will gradually feel as though you have immersed into part of Kyoto’s historic townscape that you once admired on a postcard. Dream well, and on the next day, enjoy an early morning walk along the empty Kiyomizu approach.
Away from its aspect as a vibrant tourist area, you will sense the serenity and sacredness of the Kiyomizu district that ancient folks had originally intended.
