Taiki-San always make sure we are back to the room safely, always very helpful and courteous. We had a pleasant stay and experienced traditional accommodation. The walls are thin so there is not so much privacy but we were surprised that we had pretty good rest. We had luggages during check in so it was a distance to push from the station. But it wasn’t that far of a walk. Overall we enjoyed our stay there.

The guest house is a nice experience we enjoyed very much while in Kyoto for 2 nights. The house is 100years old and we enjoyed the main room 1st floor with garden. The house was not full when we stayed so it was ok for the bathroom and kitchen sharing. Our hosts were very Nice, and ready to help with any question. The location is good, nearby the subway station K06 and lots of bus routes around to reach any spot to visit. We recommend the place for a true japanese experience, with ability to exchange with great hosts.

Spaces are small but atmosphere is friendly. We loved the tiny garden outside our room.

Staying here was really good. I got great advice on what to do in Kyoto, or whenever I had any questions. The only thing that wasn't optimal was that we couldn't sleep longer than 7 a.m. We woke up whenever the other room opened its door. That was the only issue. Otherwise we really enjoyed staying in an old japanese house!

I'm singer of band.
I was born in Kyoto in 1983. Since then, I live in Kyoto.

I have traveled all over Japan on work, travel is also a hobby of mine.
My favorite place is Berlin. Art and music is full of town, I felt very freedom.

I like camera, shrine, and folklore of Japanese.

Kyoto is a city with a history more than a thousand years. (From 1000years ago, my ancestors seems to live in Kyoto.)
Many people are still living, and many cultures keep living today.
I think Kyoto is the special place that I can feel not only people who live in the same era but also people who lived in various era.

There are a lot of places that I want to recommend to you.
And I prepare an entire apartment only for you that you can get good sleep and rest.

I hope you enjoy kyoto!
