This really was like the camping!! The cabin is as it appears but me and my friend had a hard time first of all finding Tomo's place, and once there the cabin is so small we had to keep our bags in the main house...which got tedious going too and from. The facilities are very basic but you get by. We for very cold at night, despite there being a heater (there are gaps on the canon wall with no insulation).
Tomo himself is very lovey and accommodating! He emailed us everyday to check we were ok and have grey tips on buses as places to see. We enjoyed our time there and met other like minded people, but be prepared to rough it for a few days if you want to stay here!!
I could not recommend Tomo more highly; he is hard working, helpful, very true to his word and honest. Tomo met me at the station, took my bags back home so I could wander the town and then met me to let me in later at night. If I did have any complaints then the cabin is a little on the cold side, but Tomo brings you anything you want to feel cosy and it's all part of the experience. I loved my time there and would go again.
I had a wonderful time staying with Tomo. He's a really kind and good person, and both his listings are pretty special, something else.
During my time in Kyoto, I stayed at both of his places. First in 'Nostalji', his own home. Filled with old american toys/posters/stuff, it was really charming. He made me a nice dinner (to apologize for a miscommunication), and we enjoyed some 'Dango'. We also played music together, which was a lot of fun!
The second place was 'Chian'. A bit further out of the city, which was kind of nice: Got to see how people live, how those kind of neigbourhoods look. The house itself was pretty amazing. Really old, bit messy, mats on the floor, all wood, felt very japanese to me. It's the kind of experience you won't get in a hotel or hostel. It did get really cold at night, but I didn't mind.
As for Tomo himself, as mentioned before, he's a really good and kind person. Was able to meet some of his friends, he took me to a cafe where he played old Japanese songs while I chatted with some of the locals. A wonderful experience.
To summarize: If you're interested in seeing some real Japan, meeting some interesting people, want to experience something else, make sure you stay with Tomo-san. You won't be disappointed!
