Situated in a quiet part of Kyoto, with good local transport into Kyoto central.
There are convenience stores (conbini) nearby, and a few good restaurants, of which we made good use. The kitchen was well equipped if you wanted to cook a meal. The traditional bedding was comfortable and the accommodation very spacious. Very close to Kyoto Handicraft Centre for your quality souvenirs and work shops in traditional arts if of interest.
Great house in Kyoto.
Very spacious for Japan with plenty of room for our family of four. Good location with easy connections to the station, Gion and beyond.
Would definitely recommend this property for anyone heading to Kyoto.
The townhouse was close to several bus and we were able to easily reach great sites all over the city using the bus system. The owner met us upon arrival and gave us a map with bus routes and nearby restaurants. He gave us an excellent nearby recommendation for dinner. He showed us how everything in the house work and made sure we were comfortable before leaving. The house was as pictured and exceptionally clean and attractive inside. We stayed in the house with 6 people, including my husband, myself and our 4 adult children. It was very comfortable for us. Would highly recommend this townhouse!
A very conveniently located house in walking distance from many great attractions such as the Philosophers' Walk, Ishibekoji, the zoo, shopping, dining and many many shrines. The host is very helpful with information about where to go, what to do and how to get around in Kyoto.
It is a traditional house, but fitted out with modern appliances such as air-conditioning, a modern bathroom and washing machine. (but watch your head walking between rooms if you're over 6 feet tall.)
The traditional house was in a great location, on a quiet side street, and wonderfully outfitted with every amenity a family could need. We were pleasantly surprised by the orientation to the neighborhood and bus routes that we received from Nobuya, who was very gracious.
Very friendly host and nice house equipped with all that is necessary (and more). We hope to come back sometime in the future.
Great place to stay, location is on a lot of bus routes and easy to direct cabs to, would be great for the cherry blossoms. Place can get a little cold as it has small heaters so if that bothers you look elsewhere. Would go here again.
