Guest House Yamato, Kyoto
We really enjoyed the special care shown by the owner and his wife, even though neither of us possessed the best language skills. From the first showing us where to park and all the things about staying at the guest house, to having tea and treats each evening. Location is great. Just a short walk to a bus stop or walking through eastern Kyoto to all its sights. A personal place to stay.

Guest House Yamato, Kyoto
Great place to stay in Kyoto
We spent a week here in the Japanese style room with futons on the floor, the room was very quiet and comfortable, they have typical Japanese construction with thin walls so you are at the mercy of your neighbors but during our stay all the other guests were quiet, in the evening you are given a tray with hot water in a thermos and green tea bags so you can make fresh tea in the evening and morning, the sounds of the birds and temple gong in the morning was a great way to wake up, the guest house is on a quiet street just a few hundred meters from a major tourist area, they are near a lot of the major temples and museums and shopping areas, it was a half hour walk from the railway station, the older couple who run the place were very nice but their English is not too good but with Google translate we were able to communicate. We would definitely return here and highly recommend it.
