Inside Kyoto: Beautiful Vacation Rental House Ayanokoji House in Kyoto by Aoi Kyoto Stay, a company that specializes in renting refurbished Kyoto houses. The house is in a lovely restored kura (storehouse) right in downtown Kyoto on the quiet Takasebune Canal. It's just five minutes' walk south of Shijo, but it feels like worlds away. It would make the perfect base for exploring Kyoto.
