Why Zen 禅?
The Zen House is a 100 years-old (1911) wooden house that has been restored in 2013, it is one of the two last original row-houses (nagaya 長屋) of this alley street; the second one is the next door house, the Zen Garden House.
The Zen House is ideal for a couple, with a closed bedroom, and a large living room opened to a small zen garden.
It is located in the district of Okazaki, North of Gion and at walking distance to Kyoto University. It is on the slopes of Yoshida Mount and Kurodani valley (the "dark valley"), near the philosopher's path and Higashiyama attractions. Okazaki cultural park, with its museums, concert hall (Rohm theater), libraries, the budo center, is also a new touristic spot.
