We thought the location to be very convenient. It is an easy walk to the train station to get into Kyoto or Arashiyama (this was our favorite). It was nice being away from the main section of the city. I feel it should be noted that this is a two story house. All bedrooms are upstairs. It is also extremely close (3 feet) to a very busy street so you have constant traffic noise day and night. Having said that I would still highly recommend it.

Also close to major shopping malls and to fabulous street market. Apartment was quiet, spacious for Japan, good kitchen, comfortable beds. Host provided welcoming touches: umbrellas, coffee etc, Australian koala toy, clear instructions regarding address and directions.
