  • We stayed in this house during our 3 days in Kyoto and we were very comfortable here. The house is clean and had everything we needed for our stay. Ayaka made a point to stop by and was very friendly. We had a few questions during our stay about the area or places to go and she was quick and helpful with her replies. The internet is a bit unreliable but understandable because the house is way up in the hills. Just plan accordingly.

  • Although we didn't have a chance to meet Ayaka in person it was easy to find the house based on her excellent instructions. As the title suggests it really is surrounded by nature with a beautiful bamboo grove to one side.

    The house is enormous and was well equipped with everything we needed for our short stay. It was nice sleeping in a traditional tatami room and waking up to the sun coming through the sliding shoji doors.

    It's a little far from the city center which might put some people off but perfect if you want to really escape but still be within walking distance of places like Ryōan-ji and Kinkaku-ji in northern Kyoto.

  • Ayaka's house was really cozy,homey, and suitable for kids. We really had a great time at Ayaka's house. She provide baby stuff like high chair, so my baby can eat in that chair. We loved the traditional tatami room,and the kitchen was well equipped.

    Ayaka is very helpful and fast respond when we had a trouble with the gas. And at the last day, she drive us to the train station twice (we're in the big group and big luggages) because there's something wrong with her friend's car. We had so much fun in kyoto and ayaka's. See you again ayaka :)

  • Un séjour très agréable dans une vraie maison de Kyoto : un grand espace, des tatamis, un kotatsu (super en hiver), des cloisons et des fenêtres coulissantes en bois et papier, et des toilettes japonaises... l'idéal pour se sentir vraiment au Japon. La nature est sur place, on est en bordure de la ville, c'est très tranquille. C'est l'idéal avec une voiture de location pour découvrir les environs et en même temps on peut visiter Kyoto en bus. L'hôte est très gentille et discrète. Nous avons apprécié sa confiance et.. ses cookies !

  • Ayaka was very helpful from start to finish. She was very pleasant, and made us feel welcome.

    The house is out of the way from the busy city central in Kyoto, but that is what we wanted. For a true Japanese experience Ayaka's house is the place to be.

    The house is up on a small hill, with a nice view in to Kyoto city.
    It is pretty hard to get a taxi, you will need to walk to the main road to get one, which is a short stroll away, down the hill.

    The house is big, and very cold (we were there during Winter season).

    Our most memorable moments was hiring out a bike for 2 days and rode all around Kyoto, visiting Shrines, Gion street, and other places. You can get the information from the folder Ayaka made in the Living room.

    Thank you Ayaka for letting us stayed at your house.

  • We arrived in Kyoto rather late and Ayaka picked us up at the station.Talk about a warm welcome! Her spacious traditional Japanese house is a fantastic way to stay, allowing you a unique experience. It is not centrally located, but only a 15 minute walk from Kinkaku-ji and Ryoan-ji, two of the most famous sites in the Kyoto. And a 30 minute walk from Funaoka Onsen, a very famous hot spring bath. Being surrounded by nature is simply extraordinary on a visit to any city. We highly recommend staying here for a few nights before moving to a central location. A great experience for us and our kids!!

  • We had very good time for 7 days. The house is cozy and beautiful. Ayaka is very helpful. She provide us a lot of useful information. We will definitely stay there again if we go vacation at Kyoto in the future.

  • 非常感謝Ayaka 能提供這樣好的房子, 我們一家人6人,住得非常高興, 我們還想到京都的Ayaka的家玩, 如果喜歡大自然住這裡,比住城市中的Hotel 好得多.

    這次來我們有看到雪景, 非常漂亮, 從Ayaka位在山上的家看出去, 會看到京都市區的夜景,白天可看到沿山而建的日本風格的房子, 及遠山綠樹,雖然不是花季來,我們可以想像到花季的美景
