This apartment was the perfect mixture of modern and traditional. Tucked away in a quiet residential area but close to several amazing sights and near transportation, Kyoto Kikyo was the perfect location for our Kyoto stay. The owner, Akiko, was wonderful as well and very helpful. We will be back to Kyoto and will most certainly book our stay here again!
We truly appreciate your wonderful compliments!
We are very much glad to know that both of you had a good time in Kyoto.
We hope to see both of you back here at the Kyoto-Kikyo in the very near future!
We (family of 5) couldn't have been more pleasantly surprised (well, actually it was exactly as others described it :) ) with our recent experience: the house is clean and spacious, located in a quiet and beautiful neighbourhood in close proximity to public transportation, grocery store and more. And above all Akiko has been so kind and helpful: from welcoming us at the property on the day of our arrival greeting us with smile and plenty of tips and very easy to communicate with throughout our stay. If you're a family traveling to Kyoto, this is your place!!!
Perfect for a family stay in Kyoto
This is a delightful property in a great location. The owner is an extremely helpful lady, extremely responsive on emails, and who speaks good English. We (family of five) only stayed two nights, but would have happily spent longer. The house is an easy walk to the centre of the city (approx 25 minutes), is on a bus route and has a supermarket two minutes around the corner. The fact that the house has a good washer/dryer is a useful benefit for those on extended trips and needing to catch up on laundry! One final comment: after leaving we realised that our daughter had left a stuffed toy in the house. The owner promptly sent it to our home by courier.
Beautiful. Well kept. Quiet neighborhood.
Akiko was very helpful in addition to having lovely accommodations.
Had a wonderful stay at Akiko’s home. Beautifully restored, extremely clean and a perfect location.
We stayed at Akiko’s Kyoto Kikyo Home for 4 nights. It was the perfect base as we explored Kyoto. Blending traditional aspects with modern we were comfortable and most satisfied. Everything was perfect. Akiko took good care of us. We will return in the future.
Authentic Japanese home
This is a 100 year old house that has been painstakingly and lovingly restored by Akiko and her husband. It is perfectly situated, near bus lines and a grocery store, just a few minutes from the Philosophers Path. The kitchen is well equipped and the bath is a pleasure.
Two American couples shared the house for four nights and we felt that we had a taste of living in Kyoto in the manner of the locals. We particularly appreciated how quiet and peaceful the neighborhood is. Akiko was very attentive, though not obtrusive, to our every needs.
If our travels take us to Kyoto again, we would love to stay here again. The owners also have a small French bistro, Le Pont, not far away where we had a fantastic dinner on our last night. Many thanks to Akiko for a delightful visit to Kyoto.
