Yasuhiro was probably the best communicating host we have ever had on AirBnb. He was quick and comprehensive in all of his responses and he really stood out as keen to be helpful and make our stay as enjoyable as possible. Arrival instructions were perfect and very easy to follow. The apartment is pretty spacious by Japanese standards, all of the facilities are good and work well. The portable wifi was really useful. The location is further outside Kyoto that we had perhaps initially appreciated, but in very convenient location for accessing two train lines, so it really wasn't an issue for us, and was actually more convenient for accessing Osaka Shinkansen station than somewhere in the middle of Kyoto might have been, so great for day trips further afield. The only advice I would give is to bring ear plugs and an eye mask if, like me, you are a light sleeper, as the place does get a bit of noise from the nearby train line and traffic. Overall this was a good base for exploring Kyoto and the area.
The apartment was larger than it looked in the photos. The apartment was clean and tidy, ample soaps, shampoos, and conditioner were provided. The shower was *really* good. The futons were comfortable and presented with clean linen. Location was great very close to both the Hankyu and JR lines, excellent food options within seconds walk.
We had a great stay! Hosts were accurate in their description of their apartment, which is very appreciated by us. Very close (2mins) to Hankyu Line and walkable (10mins) to JR Line. Easy to find (tip: Don't bother using (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) map, except to see street view before commencing the trip! Just follow instructions from hosts). Lawson, Supermarket, drugstore are within walking distance. Hosts were very responsive via message. Need to climb 3 storeys and don't linger on the ground level as there are mosquitos there. No mosquitos in apartment. The train sounds didn't bother us or our 7 month old. We finally have a feel of a proper Japanese tatami room, sleeping on futon, and opening the Japanese built-in wall cabinet like in Doraemon anime!
If you're looking for a traditional Japanese home which is also conveniently located than this is it! The place is right across the street from the train, which makes it a little noisey at night but it didn't bother me at all since it stopped running by the time we went to sleep. It is also a 6 min walk to the JR station! One problem we had however was that the address provided for (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps was wrong and we wasted a lot of time finding the place when it was so easy to get to in the first place.
This place is very close to Higashi Muko Station and Muko Station so you can get on the JR lines and Hankyu lines very easily. It made traveling much easier! There are also places to eat around the place as well as convenience stores. Mie and Yasuhiro are very responsive and helpful. Highly recommend this place!
