WONDERFUL PLACE!! Great view as they mentioned. Cozy spot and it really captures living in Japan. Location is perfect! close to bus stops and a train station. Just under an hour bus ride to the bamboo forest, steps away from the Yasaka shrine, quick train ride to the Fushimi Inari shrine! Wish we could of stayed here longer! Massive informational book provided if you need something to do. Thanks to the hosts for the hospitality and directions every step of the way! Definitely coming back on our next trip!
This place is excellently located, near the Gion district and many of the major temples and shrines on the east side of Kyoto. The view is really amazing! It isn't a big place that you'll want to spend tons of time in but its great to use as a sightseeing headquarters.
Jackie has it set up to be as friendly to visitors as possible, with helpful guest books, travel guides, and post-it notes with instructions for appliances. She replied quickly to all of my questions and provided an excellent pdf with detailed instructions on how to find the apartment. Overall it was a great experience!
We visited Japan on our honeymoon, and this was an absolutely ideal place to stay when we stopped in Kyoto for a few days. Jackie and Dia were incredibly welcoming and kind, their space was cute and comfortable--and you really can't beat the view from the balcony. Many beautiful sites and delicious restaurants were within easy walking distance. We would definitely stay here again.
The location is excellent, we enjoy it during our stay. The room is well-equipped.
Super cosy apartment in such a beautiful area. Jackie and Dia were quick to help with any problems I had. Thank you, I had such an amazing time and the best view!
This apartment was fantastic for exploring Kyoto. The location was unbelievable, as we had access to major spots, as well as gorgeous alleyways in Gion. Definitely recommend!
