“Fully-stocked traditional home”
Reviewed 4 June 2015 for a stay in May 2015

The home is very close to the subway and definitely within walking distance to Kyoto main station. It's also close to plenty of bus stops to get around town.

The owner leaves the house fully stocked with everything you could need. There's even coffee and a coffee maker. He even leaves you with a detailed list of restaurants and shops nearby.

The house is comfortable. If you are not accustomed to traditional Japanese homes, you may have difficulty spending all of your time sitting or sleeping on the floor.

My only complaint is that none of the drains were cleaned, they all had thick, long black hair in them. This was probably just overlooked by the cleaning crew.

“One of the highlights of our visit to Kyoto”

We stayed in the house for one week in mid-July, during the Gion Festival. We wanted to feel an "authentic" Japanese home experience, and this house supplied it. Everything in the house is Japaneses with the exception of the toilet (a relief for my kids). Tatami mats, low table with cushions on the floor, sliding wooden walls, a beautiful folding screen. The house is well air-conditioned and very comfortable. Extremely clean and well supplied. The location is very good - one stop from Kyoto train station, about a 15 minute walk. About a 20 minute walk to the center of town. We barely used the subway. Food store and 7-11 5 minute walk away. The pictures on the website realistically reflect the house. We were 2 parents and our 3 adult children and 5 suitcases and 5 carry-ons and we had plenty of space. Also, directions are provided for all the appliances in English.

“Fabulous traditional home with modern comfort young children friendly”
Reviewed 28 June 2014 for a stay in May 2014

Stayed here with three adults, one teenager and two young children under 5. A traditional property, with modern comforts (Western toilet, shower etc). Location is convenient to Kyoto train, some smaller supermarkets. Finding it the first time was a little tricky but after that, so easy to get around the place. The owner is fabulously helpful, professional and it's a true holiday rental property (not a home where the owners move out when it's rented leaving their personal items in the house for you to contend with). Space was tight for 6 of us, however, that was when we were actually there at times we weren't just sleeping or getting ready to go out. If you had a family of four, it would be more than fine. No cot but they have futons so no problems of falling out and down. A great place to stay - we'd go back.
