About Akiko H
We're an international couple sharing our time between Nice in France, Kyoto in Japan, and traveling around the world. HomeAway's Moments Makers features us in a video: https://blog.homeaway.asia/moment-makers-kyoto-japan/ We both fell in love with Kyoto and never have enough time to visit its numerous temples and shrines, gardens and secret sites. There is always something going on in this amazing city and after so much time spent here, we still enjoy discovering things. We hope to be able to share our enthusiasm and our love for this wonderful city with our guests.
Akiko H purchased this House in 2016

What a wonderful house in a great, quiet location! Our family of 8 enjoyed every minute we spent in
What a wonderful house in a great, quiet location!
Our family of 8 enjoyed every minute we spent in this great house and there was plenty of room for all of us to have private space.
Just a 3-minute walk from the Tofukuji JR station and the Family Mart and a 1-minute walk to the bus stop. Plenty of nice restaurants in the area and easily within walking distance of several temples.
This house has two very nice bedrooms with western beds and two (possibly three) great Japanese-style bedrooms with futons... each with their own A/C units.
The house also has a dish washer and clothes washer and two great shower rooms.
If coming back to Kyoto with a large group, we will definitely stay here again.
We really enjoyed staying at Samurai Machiya. We were a party of 5 adults and 2 thirteen year olds.
We really enjoyed staying at Samurai Machiya. We were a party of 5 adults and 2 thirteen year olds. The house was comfortable for all of us. It is also near a JR line station, which was great as we were traveling on the JR Pass. We appreciated the guidebook with information, particularly where the supermarkets and local restaurants are.
This house is on the edge of Kyoto in a residential area. It was good to see how locals live. There is great train, subway and bus access to the central area of Kyoto. The subway is 3 stops to busy Gion area.
A great alternative to hotel accommodation and we appreciated the easy booking and proactive communication from the owners.
We loved everything about Kyoto Tofukuji Samarai Machiya. The location is only one stop from Kyoto
We loved everything about Kyoto Tofukuji Samarai Machiya. The location is only one stop from Kyoto station which made it quick and easy to access every place we wanted to go. The house gave us an authentic Machiya experience but still had modern conveniences. There was a lot of room to spread out and the choice of western style beds or tatami rooms was nice to have. The doors are low (my husband is 6'4" and had no problem) and the stairs are steep but that's part of the charm.
We found great places to eat in the neighborhood. Someone had mentioned a good place to eat at the end of the street...we weren't sure exactly where that was but on our last night in the rain we found a small restaurant with only a counter with eight stools. Go to the end of the walkway that the house is on, turn left and it is on the right side about 50 feet. It is simple, clean and delicious.
Go everywhere early. We had Arashiyama Bamboo Grove to ourselves before 8:00. By around 9:00 tour groups started arriving and it lost a lot of its zen. Try and go to the top of the Fushimi Inari Shrine..it is a climb but worth the effort.
Akiko and Patrick were easy to communicate with and gave us very thorough directions and information. Great hosts definitely make it easier to be in an unfamiliar place. Many thanks from our family!
