“The Perfect place in Kyoto”
Reviewed 28 June 2012 for a stay in June 2012

The Machiya Townhouse is the perfect place to stay in Kyoto. We had a family of five(2 teens and 1 8 yr old) and this townhouse allowed us to experience how Japanese people live. A hotel would've required two or more rooms which we didn't want and it would've been much more expensive. The Townhouse was very clean and had many amenities. The kitchen was equipped enough that we cooked/brought in food several times. Two bathrooms was an absolute necessity. The bathrooms were very clean with plenty of hot water for two teenage girls. The luxury toilets were fun to try(warm seats, european bidet). Our location was ideal for catching the train or bus and walking distance to many stores(bakery, grocery...). The only negative was the Red Cross hospital(ambulances at night) and the busy street(ambulances again). Also provided was wifi, PC, cell phone to contact Hiro, maps, easy directions to get there, umbrellas and AC units in every room.
Hiro was the perfect host getting us situated and providing many details for us. A keypad entry system allowed us to come in very late at night.
I only wish we could've taken this place to Tokyo with us too!

We enjoyed 3 nights of luxury in this lovely abode. Brand new facilities including laptop to use while we were there, no need for keys as use a PIN code, flat screen tv and beautiful bathroom with a view into your very own Japanese garden.

Hiro was our host who gave us the guided tour. He also gave a couple of recommendations on some great restaurants in Kyoto including one small restaurant just around the corner from the hotel (side street)

Thank you for your valuable feedback. I’m incredibly pleased to hear that you were able to make the most of your stay and took the opportunity to experience what everyday life in Kyoto was like, along with some of the traditional arts Japan is renowned for. There are many hidden places in Kyoto that are not mentioned in the tourist books so I would be happy to help direct you to these areas on your next visit. I hope that you have a chance to visit Kyoto and stay at Kohakuan again in the very near future!

All the best.
