Don't expect too much..Its just a place to sleep.


Really a good place to stay ! Owner is helpful and really friendly. Once you understand how to use the air conditioner even the low temperature of Kyoto won't matter ! If I go again at Kyoto I will go there !

Emi was the most amazing host, providing maps on check in and extra touches like fresh strawberries (which were somemof the best I have ever tasted.) The location is great.
