Wonderful old house!
It was an impressive traditional Japanese town house, the owner kept it very well. Bathroom facilities are modern. It is spacious, 2 stories, decorated with various owner’s collections and fresh flowers in every room. We had a wonderful time during our stay.

Wonderful stay
We loved the house!! It was such a fun experience staying here and we appreciated all the thoughtfulness and flexibility of our phenomenal hosts. My one piece of feedback is I would've liked to have received check-in information a couple of days before our trip. I had to reach out to figure out what we were supposed to do once we arrived in Kyoto. But we got in contact with them and everything afterwards was perfect. Thanks so much for having us!
