The house wasn't prepared for any real cooking or eating (no chopsticks, limited supply of dishes and cups, no dish towels, etc.). This location is good for individuals looking to spend the majority of the day looking around Kyoto and returning only to sleep, but it is lacking certain comforts to spend a rainy day inside. The proximity to Toji is very exciting and the buses and trains are within walking distance to travel around Kyoto or even a day trip to Osaka.
