A house in Kyoto city, but surrounded by nature, perfect for a “work vacation”.

Hello, this time I'd like to introduce you to Saga Arashiyama House, a house surrounded by nature in a calm environment even though it is located in Kyoto City. What kind of image do you get when you hear the word "Kyoto City"?

Isn't it common to think of a town full of temples and shrines with a sense of history?

So what kind of place is the Saga Arashiyama area where this share house is located?

Since the Heian period (794-1185), the area was favored by aristocrats and prospered as a villa area, so there are many buildings that still retain the vestiges of that era, and Saga Arashiyama appears in many waka poems.

There are many symbols of the Saga-Arashiyama area, but the most famous of them is probably the Togetsukyo Bridge over the Katsura River!



Why not make this sightseeing spot, which is within walking distance from the share house, your usual walking course?

The bamboo grove is also famous, and you can even take a walk for a change.


Although the Saga-Arashiyama area is such a great place to live, it's also close to sightseeing spots, and if you take a short walk, you can enjoy the countryside scenery.

Many of the residents are freelancers and home workers, and they prefer to work in this environment away from the city.

They prefer to work in this environment away from the city. If you're looking for a place to work, we think this share house will fit the bill.

There's a large desk in the room, so you can set up your computer and concentrate on your work.



Saga Arashiyama will be enveloped by the autumn leaves. Why don't you live and work in this place that is very Kyoto!
