Thank you very much again for choosing our Miyagawacho Samurai Machiya for your stay in Kyoto. We hope you will enjoy the place and your stay in Kyoto.
Before anything, here is the information you will need upon your arrival in Kyoto.
First, about the check-in process. It is usually done in an office located near the central exit of the Kyoto train station (a few minutes away). You’ll find a map on how to get to the office here: Check-in upon your arrival in Kyoto
Be sure to download the file! You may want to print it and take it with you. The office is open between 9:00 and 19:00. Unless you have already preregistered directly with me, do get in touch directly with our staff, if you know in advance that you won’t be able to get there before 19:00 on the day of your arrival. The contact info is as follows:
TEL: 090-8161-3870 (24/7) (If the line is busy, you can call 075-365-5110 (9:00-19:00))
You’ll also find here “Kyoto Station to Miyagawacho Machiya” a map showing you the location of the Miyagawacho Machiya, with instructions on how to get there by taxi (with instructions in Japanese for the driver). The cost of a taxi ride should be about yen 1,000 – 1,200 for up to four persons from Kyoto station Central Exit. You can also go by bus (yen 230 per person).
Be sure to download this file as it contains the address of the Miyagawacho Machiya and useful information on how to get there.
We invite you to spend a bit of time on our little website (https://mykyotomachiya.com/) — you’ll find all kinds of information to help you prepare for your stay in Kyoto, suggestions for your visits, and much more — we try to add new things all the time.
In addition, do not hesitate to contact us at any time if there is anything we can do to help you with your stay in Kyoto, such as specific suggestions for visit, reservations for a restaurant, etc. We’ll be glad to help.
Note, however, that once you’re in Kyoto and during your stay, do not contact us (we’re not always in Kyoto and not always able to reply in a timely manner), but contact our local staff at the number/email mentioned above.
We look forward to hosting you.
–Samurai Tom & Jerry (and Akiko & Patrick)
