Thank you so deeply for enabling our stay in Kyoto staying at your beautiful House. It is a gorgeous place to stay, quite otherworldly and serene. Sleeping upstairs with the gentle sound of cascading water is very peaceful. We very much enjoyed its authenticity, both H. and I are long time enthusiasts of Japanese history and art, so it is a treasure to stay in a real home. We even set up our own Tokonoma (hope you don't mind - we put Mr. Apple back!). Our favourite experience was cycling around Kyoto to see many temples and shrines and the Nishiki Market. E. also loved the trains, trams and cable-car as we don't have them back home. I have traveled on four of six continents and I must say that Kyoto is one of earths gems and the House its little twinkly! A., H. and E., Cairns, Australia
Bonjour! It seems like yesterday when we first arrived in this pretty little House. Time has flown so fast in this very nice city, Kyoto. We enjoyed riding your bikes from temple to temple during the first sunny days. We really liked to experience the Japanese life style in this house. Thank you for your hospitality and we will recommend your house to friends who might one day come to Kyoto. We now follow our trip to Hiroshima and we hope to see you again! Alice, France
This was the 3th time that we had the luck to stay in this cozy, gorgeous and immaculate maintained typical japanese house.The owner, Hiroko san, is always very kind and very helpful. She can give loads of information about what's going on and what's to see in Kyoto, our favorite town in Japan. Like the previous 2 times, it was again a unique experience, living like true residents of Kyoto. Every evening coming back after a busy day, we said to eachother: "back home, sweet home!". We are already dreaming to come for the 4th time
