About this listing

This is independent homestay. Room is very clean neat, basic life of Kyoto. Middle sized Supermarket is just 30 seconds by walk which open until 22h. Very convenience, live like Kyotoite.

The space

Kyoto home stay independent.

Travelers to Kyoto can easily spend a week visiting the city’s historical attractions such as the Kyoto Imperial Palace, (京都御所)Kinkakuji (Golden Pavilion 金閣寺) which is world heritage of UNESCO and Sanjusangendo. (三十三間堂)All sections of the city contain more than one locale well worth a thorough visit, Notably, some of Japan’s oldest traditions, such as the tea ceremony, flower arranging, and geisha schooling originated in the city. These ancient customs, while still practiced throughout Japan, can only be observed in their original setting in Kyoto. Maybe it takes about 5 days to visit important sightseeing spots. Only 2 or 3 days are little bit short.

Near Daitokuji and Golden Pavilion at the heart of Japanese Culture, our district is called Murasakino.

its means violet-field which is read by the famous Japanese poem Manyoushu( edited in 7th century)

Very lovely host. The location was very convenint and close to the 9 bus which takes you straight to kyoto station. It is easy to get lost here but the host helped direct me to many interesting sites!

We loved our stay at the Konakas'. The guest house and room were warm and comfortable. We found the kitchen useful too. In comparison to ither reviews we had no problems and founs the Konakas lovely and more than willing to help or just to wish you a good morning. The Internet was also fast and worked throughout the house. And the "outside shower" that other people had mentioned wasn't actually outside. It was in an outhouse under the building and was fully insulated and warm. In all a really nice place to stay. It is quute far out but this wasn't a problem for us. There's buses round the corner or if you walk 10 minutes down the road you can get one single bus into the centre of Kyoto with no changes. My only comment would be that after the initial booking I aksed Ritsuko a question and I still haven't heard back. This may have uneased slightly more nervous travellers, but we were fine and just got on with it and her mum and dad who you actually meet more than made up for this. As a sidr note, I would 100% recommend getting a portable wifi during any stay in Japan as it makes getting around so much easier.

Very nice stay at Mr and Mrs Konaka's house, on a traditional Japanese futon. In the winter you have to use the AC for heating, and the house is a bit old and not so well insulated, but apart from that it's quite comfortable and has all necessary appliances. Mrs Konaka kindly provided me with a guidebook and a map, as well as all sorts of advice on the transportation system. Though the address isn't exactly central, it's only 20-30 min away at most from downtown by bus. I would certainly recommend this guesthouse to anyone in Kyoto.

The room was a bit cold, but overall this was a great experience. The house is quite large, there are many rooms with foreign guests. The owner was very friendly and explained everything. It's also located near bus stop, but the nearest metro station is a bit too far. Overall, I enjoyed staying there.

At the first time, I got some difficulties to find the host house because it locates far from the Kyoto center . I need to take subway from Kyoto station to Kitaoji station, then change to bus No. 1 or 8 to come to the host house. If you come back later than 10pm, you must take taxi because there is no more bus come back to Murasakino Sendocho. Anyway, i like this home stay. Its quite and far from the crowded center like Gion, Shijo. The host are very nice, friendly and helpful. If I come back Kyoto, I will prefer to stay there again. Thanks for Konata san's help during my stay. Best, Quyen
