STAY, STAY AND STAY!!! Me and my partner were lucky enough to get the opportunity to stay in sakuras place for 3 nights and it simply wasn't enough! If you are planning a trip to Kyoto we would more then 100% recommend you stay at Hiroyuki, Tetsuo and Mikiyos place as it is the most beautiful apartment in the whole of Japan! On arrival we were met by Hiroyukis parents at the accommodation and they are simply the kindest people we have ever met! And such a warming welcome was tipped of with the cleanest, most well arranged and equipped airbnb apartment we have ever stayed in! at first we were a little worried about the fouton sleeping arrangements but don't be as they are more comfortable then any bed we slept in the whole month we travelled Japan!! The room also came with a washing machine which is a major plus if you have been away for a while and also toiletries such as body wash, shampoo, conditioner and tooth paste have all been provided making this place much better then any hotel in Japan! The apartment is a short and beautiful bike ride from all ammenties and all the best tourist areas to visit in Kyoto! Truly words cannot describe this place well enough and you simply have to go and stay to see for yourself, how amazing this place and people are! One thing I would say is that 3 days here was not enough I would defiantly recommend a week and we will defiantly be going back for another holiday! So see you soon Hiroyuki, Tetsuo and Mikiyo. All our love Joshua and Jessica x

I loved my stay at Sakura. The host is fantastic. The place is clean, comfortable and convenient to move around. The 4 bicycles are added bonus. We enjoyed so much cycling around the neighbourhood especially to Arashiyama - it was our best experience in Kyoto. Thank you Hiroyuki for answering all my questions; your mum, Mikiyo for all the guidances, snacks and gifts, and your father, Tetsuo for guiding and cycling with us to the Arashiyama bicycle path. Lastly thank you for being so generous with the free Wifi.

Guest House Sakura blew us away. We had expected a smaller place, but the room was a big studio style room with the bedroom/living space combined with the kitchen space. The bathroom/laundry room was big too. Everything was impeccably clean and well labeled. There were complimentary drinks and some snacks too. The host had left a letter welcoming us to the room which was a nice touch. The host's parents lives upstairs and was very friendly and approachable for check-in and even for our early 6am check-out. The wifi worked wonderfully and we used a couple of their bicycles to explore all over Kyoto. It was about a 30-35 min ride to Arashiyama along the river which we did one day, and the next day we did a 15-20 min ride to Nijo Castle, and then another 20-25 min ride to the area below Kiyomizu-dera (park the bike at the bottom of the hill). The host was on top of all communication and was very responsive. We plan to recommend this place to anyone we know looking to stay in Kyoto!

This is an amazing place to stay in Kyoto. Absolutely perfect, do not miss out. A home away from home, in a brand new apartment block with everything you need. But the best part is the welcoming hosts who are so nice, giving free drinks and snacks on arrival, making you feel so happy and warm. We want to go back already. The bikes were great to ride around the nearby river to Arashiyama. The location is good too, right near station but not in hustle bustle of the city. One of the best airbnbs I have been to and still so cheap!

Very comfortable place, and with very convenient bikes :) Nice neighborhood, everything was perfect to ease a great time in Kyoto. Plus, and very important, the hosts were very warm and made us feel safe and supported.

Hiroichi and his parents were really nice. The airbnb was super clean and close to the train station. When we first came, Hiroichi walked with us to the train station and helped us find the way to Arashiyama. When we came home late, he texted and made sure we were safe. The futons were even better than a mattress. I couldn't get over how nice and clean Hiroichi's Sakura guest house was. Also they offerred free tea, coffee, water and small snacks. When we left, Hiroichi's parents gave us a cute little Japanese gifts for us to bring home. That was really nice of them.

Guest House Sakura was our favourite room during our trip to Japan. This was due to the lovely host and his family and the effort they made to make us feel welcome. The room itself was lovely, clean and new and had everything we needed. Our hosts even provided snacks, drinks and their own guidebook for the area. We were truly touched by the generosity and kindness of our hosts and highly recommend staying here.
