“A house that has been renovating a townhouse in Kyoto more than 100 years old. It is old but clean, art is fused, and it was the house I wanted to stay at. Especially the porch was very nice and it was well immersed. Lol I could spend the best 3 days! Yoshi was very friendly and kind, and he taught me everything from the rooms to the surrounding sights. I will stay when I come to Kyoto! Thank you very much! PS We went tuna bowl! It was very delicious ^^”

“The house was indeed very old but lovely. Be prepared to snuggle at night because it could get cold. Japanese houses were not very well insulated. You can warm up with hot showers in the public bath house near by or by using the heated blanket in the living room. We enjoyed our stay. The staff was very kind and we could manage everything without knowing too much Japanese.”
