MANEKI MACHIYA STAY – Living like a Local –


In the city of Kyoto, Maneki Machiya restores old machiyas into comfortable, attractive stays, while keeping the original structure. We hope to provide the traditional Kyoto living experience,  and make your stay a great souvenir from Kyoto.

Our guest house program in Kyoto has been created as a way to help the community by supporting teachers at the local kindergarten & nursery school. We also support animal rescue assistance in Japan, on a local scale and also in Fukushima with Japan Cat Network.

We welcome volunteers from all over the world, and we are vegan-veg friendly.

Come enjoy a stay at one of the charming little houses in old Kyoto, and as a bonus, help stray and abandoned animals in Japan.

We promise to offer you a memorable experience. We look forward to having you stay with us.
