My house was built over 100 years ago and renovated it and i started accepting guests from January 23rd, 2013!
There are 3 rooms(2 Japanese Style and 1 Bunk Bed Style) on the 2nd floor and 1 room(1 Japanese Style) on the 1st floor. Basically, I do not have a Single room in my house because i want many guests to have a chance to stay in my traditional house.If you are ONE person, you need to share the room with other guest.
Male and Female dorms are shared by 2 or 3 people. Same room could be arranged for couple or family as a private room if you request me and it is possible.
As the house is renovated from a traditional Japanese house, rooms on the 2nd floor are built with an open ceiling so sound may leak out. No keys for all rooms, but there are lockers with key.
You can spend a relaxing night in the Japanese Style tatami room or Western Style bunk bed room with comfortable futon mattress.
You may also share your travel experience and information with other travelers in the common living room. If you got any problem with your trip, feel free to ask and we will try our best to help. The atmosphere in here makes you feel like at home.
Luggage can be kept from 8:00a.m on the check-in day and by 11:00pm on the check-out day. There is no curfew.
A bus stop is located right next to the guest house, with buses going to tourist attractions like Gion (祇園), Ginkakuji (銀閣寺), Higashiyama area (東山区), and also to Kyoto station.
Only 10~15mins walk to Nishihonganji(西本願寺) and Higashihonganji(東本願寺).

Good locations and have many information for us easy to find everything in Kyoto.
สถานที่ไปง่ายมากค่ะไม่ไกลจากเกียวโตสเตชั่นมากนัก ห้องค่อนข้างเล็ก ห้องน้ำมีห้องเดียวห้องส้วมก็ห้องเดียว ต้องรอคิวยาวเลย แต่สะอาดดีค่ะ
The place was clean and easy to find. Would recommend this place to anyone traveling to Kyoto!
We love Toru's place, clean and quiet surrounding. I will definitely recommend to friends. Toru is helpful in assisting travel enthusiasts like us on where to go by providing us with city map and bus guides. His place offers clean and potable water to drink, and also tea for tea drinkers. I can not say anything for more but all my praises for such a wonderful place.
We would however appreciate it more if there is available location map with arrows, and it would be great.
Toru was very nice. The location of his place is great, it's literally in the center of the city so its easy to get to those famous sights. I got to rent his bike and I was riding around the city which was awesome! His place was very clean, I was sharing the room with 2 other girls, it was fine with me. Base on all that, I think it's a good value to stay at Tori's place if privacy is not that big of deal for you. I had a great time and I got to meet some friends.
