Good location for exploring old Kyoto
Friendly couple run this Japanese style inn. Shower is downstairs from the rooms. There are curfew times for the shower and for being back at night, which is understandable, as it is also the couple's home.

Hotel for Longer Visit
We stayed at the Guest House Yamato for 7 nights, too long. For 2-3 nights it would be fine for someone there to just visit a couple sights. We had the room for three adults, three twin beds. The beds were hard and the pillows were very uncomfortable, we each had one oversize bean bag type pillow. Because there are just 4 guest rooms sharing the two bathrooms and showers was not an issue. However if you enjoy the simple comforts most hotels provide; TV, closet/dresser, private bath, desk or table with a couple comfortable chairs you will miss these at the guest house. Furniture is limited, we shared one closet with shelves, no dressers. The bed cover was not clean and the little bit of furniture there was was dusty. Our room was "cleaned" twice during our visit, the pillow cases were changed and trash emptied. The hosts are pleasant and offer a nice western or Japanese style breakfast for $6.50 (you need to let them know the night before). There is an 11:00 PM curfew. Their English is limited which was challenging at times. No laundry is provided, we were directed to a coin laundry about 3/4 miles walk from the guest house. The location is convienent to visiting a couple of the popular tourist sights.

Adjacent to important shrines
This is a guest house, not a hotel. The owners are cordial and provide you with all the necessary instructions for the shared bathrooms, breakfast options, and getting around. The shared bathrooms are very clean, but the walls between rooms are quite thin so you can hear other guests. The rooms are decorated with traditional art and mats, so they are great for taking photos. Our room was quite spacious. The Japanese futon beds were comfortable but the pillows were not. It was an authentic Japanese experience, and is great if you are wanting to step out of your comfort zone. The daily tea service was a nice touch. Walking distance to most major sights in Kyoto, but tucked away off the street and hard to find upon arrival.
