The unit was a tad small for two adults, but found to be adequate. Facilities were good but we would have liked a toaster included in the kitchen items. Convenience stores around the corner and plenty of eating places within a very short walk were a definite plus.. Negatives: The large bulk supplies of tissues, detergent, toilet paper etc. stored in various cupboards consumed a lot of storage space, minimising that available for our use for our personal items. The settee/divan, come second bed, was extremely uncomfortable and awkward to sit upon, and tended to fall apart when being used. At the end of the day, after exploring all the wonderful sites Kyoto has to offer the tourist, it would have been pleasant to have had a more comfortable piece of furniture upon which to relax - the divan completely lacks any form of comfort. The staff of Kyoto Explorer (Mariko) were extremely helpful and did their utmost to ensure that our visit was enjoyable and stress free, being constantly on hand to offer advice (when required) throughout the entire period of our stay. We will definitely use this Company for our accommodation reservations when next we visit Kyoto - in the not too distant future, we hope! Jacky and Eric Shaw
