Super friendly staff :-) very knowledgeable about what is in the neighborhood
It was VERY Japanese in that the house was continuously cold. We did have a heater in the room, but we had no control over the temp it was just on or off. The owner was very nice and helpful, and the location was quite and quaint, but only close to the JR station.
My stay at Bola Bola was far better than I could have imagined. The traditional style Japanese house was beautiful, and a very short walk from Usamasa train station making it easy to access. A decently sized kitchen is available for all guests to use and includes microwave, stove, large sink, and toaster oven as well as a fridge to store any food in. The owners themselves were extremely kind and generous, they both spoke enough English that it was easy to communicate. I will definitely be back!

Good place to stay if you want to escape from Kyoto city center, and nice to explore the bamboo woods...Nice cosy place to stay and a lot of facilities around the place. Staff was helpful!
