We, host couple, have lived in Hieidaira housing development for thirty years. Our neighbors are all friendly.
Hieidaira is on the slope of Mt. Hiei(about 350 m high) and inhabited by 3,000 people in 1,300 households. There are a kindergarten, an elementary school, a post office, a medical clinic, a convenience store, a few restaurants and coffee shops, a tennis court, a golf course, a small field athletics in town and wonderful trekker's trails in the surrounding forests.
Around our Azalea House you may sometimes come across wild deer, wild monkeys and even wild boars, but from our house you can reach Kyoto in 15 minutes by car, and also Lake Biwa in as many minutes, which means that you can enjoy both nature and city life at the same time here.
Famous tourist spots in Kyoto(Ginkakuji Temple, Shimogamo Shrine, Gion, Kiyomizu temple etc. )are all within easy access of our house. Swimming beaches on Lake Biwa and skiing grounds on Mt. Hira are also recommendable.

Hi, everyone, We are a couple living on the slopes of Mt. Hiei in Kyoto with a cat named Mimi. Mimi, however, lives only in our quarters and never comes into guests’ rooms. My husband is a retired teacher who understands English. He can explain in English about Japanese culture and history. I am a painter who has been painting in Kyoto for over 30 years. I can give you useful information about sightseeing spots and historic sites around Kyoto and Otsu. Many people from foreign countries such as the USA, Bosnia & Herzegovina, the Netherlands, Germany, India etc. have visited our house so far. We are looking forward to making friends with more people from various countries around the world through Airbnb.
