Such a cool little place to stay- it's like stepping back in time into Edo! If you want to see what traditional Japanese inns look like then this is your place. Apart from there being pretty much no security systems (it didn't bother me at all, but others might expect at least a locked front door haha) it was great. Eclectic record collection in the common room to chill out to. The only thing I would recommend is more signage out the front, and a map of the area for guests when they arrive.

Strange layout and a little out of the way but it was cheap and a place to sleep!

For me the Location is great, it very quiet and the bus stop are only 5min walk and the Train station are around 10-15min walk. It might be difficult finding it the first time and especially for some people who are not strong in Japanese, because travelling by bus can be quite overwhelming!

Beautiful traditional Japanese house in a very quiet area of Kyoto. The staff is friendly and there is a great collection of good vinyls to listen to at night in the charming common room. Just a little thing: in the dorms, the mattress could be a bit thicker. Also: possibility to rent some bikes for just 500 Yens the day!
