This was a great stay ! Anthony & Akemi house was very well situated, very close to the center of Kyoto, and to a metro/train station. The room was big enough, and very clean. The shared bathroom was very clean and very well equipped. I barely saw any other guests during my stay, it was like having the whole house for myself. Anthony & Akemi gave me an extensive guide of the city, and where to go eat. They also provided very clear information about how to get to the house (including directions in Japanese for taxi drivers). They also helped me getting cooking tools ! I will definitively recommend it !

It was a very pleasant stay, just a pity there's one shared bathroom and one morning we waited for another guest for more than 1.30 h to finish his very very long shower! It would be useful to have a showering schedule with other guests in the morning. Anthony and Akemi are really great hosts, although we just saw them for a very short time, they were very present and gave us read advices on what to see and where to eat in the city!

I highly recommend this house for the following reasons: 1. Extremely good location very convenient to the scene spots and any other places in the city. 2. You can use the kitchen to cook for yourself. The kitchen has everything you need to make a good breakfast or dinner and the 24 hour supermarket is three minutes away by foot. 3. Very hospitable hosts. They are always there to help you on everything. You just cannot have any troubles if you stay there. You can ask for all the information you need to go around the city and make the best out of the trip.

Location is great. Not too far from the JR and local train. Walkable distance to the central shopping area and can take train to all the touristy area. Akemi is very prompt to communicate with us prior to our stay. Only prob is Japan house are not very sound proof so at night do expect some traffic sound.

Anthony and Akemi are very friendly owners, they have a pair of lovely children, daughter Anna and Son Leo. I spent 19 days at Sanjo House, Sanjo House is very convenient, the room is clean, Anthony and Akemi are ready for daily necessities, easy to use, especially suitable for long stay, is a very good experience. I was lucky enough to meet the cherry blossoms in full bloom, so I had a very good time in Kyoto, and Kyoto is so beautiful that I would go again. Anthony和Akemi是非常友好的房东,他们有一对可爱的儿女,女儿Anna和儿子Leo。 我这次在Sanjo House住了19天,Sanjo House地理位置非常方便,房间干净,Anthony和Akemi将日常用品准备得很齐全,使用方便,特别适合长住,是一次非常好的住宿体验。我很幸运地遇到盛开的樱花,好感动,在京都度过了非常美好的时光,京都真是太美了,我还会再去的。

Akemi, Anthony, Anna & Leo User ProfileAkemi, Anthony, Anna & Leo is a superhost.

Our family moved to Kyoto a few years ago and we have really been enjoying spending our days in this culturally rich city. When we were younger, we traveled the world and enjoyed seeing life in all its splendor. Now, we want to bring the world to Anna and Leo and show them all the beauty that we have come to understand. We hope that you can come and share your culture with us, as we will do our best to make your Japan experience unforgettable.

We are not always at home and not always available to spend time, but we will do our best to welcome you, make sure that you are having a pleasant stay, and see you off. Of course we will always be available via phone or text during your stay.
