We loved the house!! It was such a fun experience staying here and we appreciated all the thoughtfulness and flexibility of our phenomenal hosts. My one piece of feedback is I would've liked to have received check-in information a couple of days before our trip. I had to reach out to figure out what we were supposed to do once we arrived in Kyoto. But we got in contact with them and everything afterwards was perfect. Thanks so much for having us!
A traditional experience
We spent three nights and loved every minute of our stay.
The owners were very kind and even spoke a little bit of English. They provided us with maps and brochures of the area and answered questions about local attractions.
As a gift they had stocked the refrigerator with bottles of delicious Sake and beer. The lady of the house also provided us with warabi mochi and hand-whisked green tea upon checking in.
Contrary to what was stated on the Expedia listing, free WiFi was provided.
Amazing place! What a pleasure to stay here!
From the moment we arrived we truly felt at home. The owners were so nice and welcoming. They did everything in their power to make us feel special. They helped with instructions around the area, best places to visit, restaurants etc... They took the time and explained to our 5 and 8 year old the history of their home and all 10 generations that had lived there. The history behind it was truly amazing.
The actual house is beautiful! The photos do not do justice. Extremely clean and they really put a lot of attention to detail. You truly get to experience a traditional Japanese home. They do set up the beds on the floor but they are very, very comfortable!
I have to words to describe what a beautiful place and experience this was! Highly recommend!
A beautiful house from another time, full of history, all for you, with beautiful furniture, all comfort, renovated with care, and excellent location. very much recommended
Amazing stay in a traditional townhouse in the Gion. Friendly and helpful owners. Very private stay in a quiet location. Easy to tour the main regions of Kyoto from this stay. Traditional bath made it feel a little like a spa.
