Spent a week here. Taxi from the railway station cost 900 or so yen. Owners emailed a Japanese address and directions which enabled the taxi driver to find it easily.

Comfortable beds. Very quiet room. Tatami matted futon bedded Japanese room also possible but we slept in the western bedded room. A/C units in both bedrooms and living area. Heaters upstairs and down. Slightly larger than we imagined from the photographs. Washer drier available.

Milk and Orange juice in the fridge on arrival. Freezer also available. All the utensils you are likely to need.

Bath takes a bit of figuring out. Maybe its a zen thing.

The location is under 5 minutes from a supermarket and under 10 from a 24 hour one. But there are bakeries and fruit shops and a butchers and lots of little shops and restos and even a McD's not so far away. It didn't seem to matter much where you bought stuff in Japan the prices were not so different for the same goods. That Asahi Super Dry is so so tasty! Beware, lots of shops add 8% sales tax to the sticker prices.

Location is 10 minutes on foot from Gion Corner - via Kennin-ji. Its also 10 minutes from Kodai-Ji. So your first day's sightseeing is on your doorstep.

Limited express buses stop outside post office - 5 minutes away.

It took us 3 days to find the salt cellar - its in a pull out drawer to the right just below the gas hob. Duh! Ironing board is novel :) .

We are independent, so we didn't bother the owners at all. We gleaned lots from the past visitor comments books - a special thank you to the person who informed us about Imperial Palace tickets.

Our only minor issue was trashism. We liked to be up early and out before the rest of the tourists, but trash is collected MonWedFri and we struggled a little adhering to the regime.

We left early to fly home, so we elected to take a group taxi back to Kansai (3300 yen each ) and junked our return Haruka ticket. Mostly because we feared missing the train. I didn't have a great deal of confidence in taxis because I only know a dozen Japanese words, none of which allow directing taxi drivers so didn't want to take any risks.

I would stay here again without hesitation.
