Amazing experience, location, and friendliness of the host. Definitely eat the meal at her parents restaurant, it is one you won't forget. We love the neighborhood and can't wait to come back sometime! Renting electric bicycles is the best way to see all the sites in the area.

Really clean and cozy apartment at a convenient distance from Arashiyama and the station! The nearby station is especially useful for JR pass holders travelling from Kyoto station. Chikako was a wonderful and warm host who is very available and responsive, and gave really great recommendations! We would definitely stay here again.

Chikako is as warm and wonderful as all of her reviews describe. Check in was easy and the apartment has all the necessities one would need. The bamboo forest is close on foot and there is public transit near by. Chika was so nice and helped us make reservations over the phone for a restaurant that only took reservations in Japanese. I highly recommend staying with her as you will not be disappointed.

Chikako's apartment is just perfect. Very nice area, apartment clean and tidy. What's more, Chikako is a great host! She helped us with our car and she even baked us some delicious cookies for when we left! Can only recommend!

Chika's place is wonderful. She made my partner and I feel so welcome and has lots of local knowledge to share. The apartment is clean with a view of the mountains, and close to the JR station plus lots of local temples and walks. On top of all this, Chika's family restaurant downstairs is definitely worth a visit - her father cooks the best wagu beef I think we've ever had!! I'd definitely recommend staying here - we hope to come again!

I would highly recommend to stay in Chikako's place. The location is very good. It's close to the rail station so you can get wherever you want easily. The apartment is very clean and confortable. We enjoyed a lot staying there! We didn't have the opportunity to meet her personally but we had been in contact by messages a lot and she gave us a lot of gifts, yummy cookies she made.

Japan's honeymoon trip is one of the most satisfying accommodations. If I have the chance to come back, I'll stay here and be a kyoto.
