This little hidden gem of a guest house is right next to Kitano Tenmangu. One of the famous Shrines of Kyoto. Be on the lookout for one of the largest flea markets in Kyoto every 25th of the month. It is also close to Kamishichiken, one of the famous Geisha schools and in the summer the beer garden where you can see them and talk to them is a must.. The location is extremely convenient, especially for Arashiyama and the bamboo forest.
