Hana – Tale Villa
A simple yet chic black wood exterior combined with a functional and elegant interior space. At the entrance, visitors are welcomed by an authentic Japanese garden with a beautiful water planter.
Located in the Higashiyama area, this Villa is roughly a 5-minute walk to the Kiyomizu Temple area, a popular tourist spot. The Villa is also conveniently located just a 5-minute walk from Kiyomizu Gojo Station. By taxi, it is just a 10-minute ride to Kyoto Station.
Guests are welcomed by a chic black wood exterior and a refined interior featuring a modern Japanese design. Beyond the noren curtain, guests will find a large water planter in a garden bursting with atmosphere, another one of the highlights of this Villa. In addition to the two gardens, the kitchen, living room, and sink have all been consolidated onto the 1st floor. A 1st floor space where everyone will want to gather when not sleeping. We have provided a functional and exciting space.
