The owner lady is magnificent, she is there for you whenever a need is appearing. She thinks for everything and the place is very well with big rooms.


X This was the best place for me to stay in Kyoto close to Goin area.Experience real Japanese living in this spotless home.Heated throughout for winter with the elderly owner making you feel special with welcome treats of fruit and nuts and strawberries with nice bottle of sake for the second night.If I was to live in Kyoto I would stay here and call her Mum! Thanks for the wonderful memory . Eamonn

We were greeted by a very nice lady. The room was spacious and clean. The bathroom was very clean even we had to share with other people. The heater was enough to cover us from the coldness 😊 oh the people who's next door to us were really friendly too. Highly recommended!
