GroLiving Kyoto

Fun, private, 3-month apartments in the heart of Kyoto.


GroLiving (pronounced "grow living") brings coliving to the next level. We are a hybrid space for travelers of all kinds. Digital nomads, remote workers, and students will enjoy the seclusion of a private apartment, the social atmosphere of a hostel, and the comfort of a hotel.

You’ll find GroLiving on the main street Kawaramachi-Dori, in a stunning location with quick access to the Kamo River and within walking distance of all the main attractions. You don’t need a train anymore!


From the GroLiving rooftop, you`ll take in views of the great Kannon statue and the historic Kiyomizu-dera temple anytime you like.


One  Building, three atmospheres

Groliving is a building with three atmospheres: a common room for sharing experiences with other guests, a terrace for relaxation and meditation, and your own mini apartment with everything you need for full autonomy. 


Why different

We are digital nomads. Having lived for a year in an Australian campervan, we knew what it would take to design the perfect living space.
On the road, we learned that to stay sharp, one must enjoy a separate environment for every mode of life. The bed in which you sleep should not be the same place in which you relax to watch a movie. The desk where you study or work should not be the table at which you eat. All of our actions need dedicated spaces to grow our creativity and maximize our productivity. That’s why in addition to a comfortable bed, every Groliving apartment is furnished with a sofa, work desk, and dining table.


Hassle Free

When it comes to business, we firmly believe in transparency. The price you see is the price you pay. No hidden fees. No extra fees. No initial fees. No cleaning fees. No linen rental fees. No Internet fees. No insurance fees (insurance is already included in the cost). Even the washing machine is free to us.



Before building Groliving, we were (and still are) world travelers, remote workers, minimalists, and Airbnb superhosts with 10+ years of verified experience. We've thought of every detail. What you can't find at Groliving, you simply don't need! A pictures of the apartments are not ready yet please ask anything you need. Despite the central location a Foldable bike will be provided for free too!

Sorry, we are not ready yet! As we build Groliving from Scratch few things still miss. The Building will be completely ready by the and of March and new pictures will arrive. Thanks for understanding.

Thanks to GroLiving's central Kyoto location, you will never need public transportation in your daily life. Supermarkets, bars, and beautiful scenery are all around you. You will be a two-minute walk from the Kamo River and a five-minute walk from the Imperial Palace, elevating your Kyoto experience exponentially.
