  • If I remember my short stay in Japan during the Corona crisis in the future, the wonderful hospitality and the tasteful and cozy accommodation of Takako and Yucki will remain in my memory! The nice encounters with the hosts and the "traditional" accommodation have certainly given me a little insight into life in Japan. I also really enjoyed exploring the surrounding area and the city by bike, which is very feasible. Thank you for everything!

  • Such a wonderful place to stay. We were well looked after and Yukie was a fantastic host. I would love to come back and recommend this to people 😊

    Antonia2020-03-16T00:00:00Z
  • Love love love!! A place you could truly call your home away from home!

  • The first time I experienced Kyoto's homestay, I was attracted by the good reviews, and I was even more convinced after the actual stay. This is a great choice. The hosts were very enthusiastic, and there was no problem in communicating in English. They also warmly prepared gifts for us. Thank you very much! The location of the house is very convenient. It is close to the subway station and there are many supermarkets. If you want to play Kyoto Kiyomizu Temple and Inari Taisha, it is not far. I like the layout of the house, and the quilt and ns win my heart. Next time I come to Kyoto, I will still choose this one!

  • Traditional Japanese-style homestay is a perfect experience. Room: Very clean and spacious, the surroundings are very quiet. Traditional Japanese tatami, partitions and furniture. The host also provided Japanese-style pajamas. We took many photos with our own kimono. Very nice interior. The kitchen and bathroom appliances are very complete, as well as a full cup of various tableware and tea sets. There are toys and game consoles. Transportation: There are bus stations, subway stations, convenience stores, and living supermarkets within 10 minutes. I walked out of Kyoto Station and walked here for 30 minutes. Surroundings: Matsuya set meals, a fast-food restaurant, cheap. There is a supermarket in the intersection. The meat, vegetables and Japanese soup base we bought here, the hotpot we eat, and the hotpot in the bed and breakfast is shabu-shabu. Others: Children are charged separately, which is about 2500 yen per day. The introduction is written in Japanese. We went at the end of January and it was quite warm after turning on the air conditioner in the room.

  • The whole house has convenient transportation, and it takes five minutes to walk after getting off the subway. There are supermarkets, convenience stores, and izakayas at the door. The whole house has Japanese-style features, and the host is hospitable! Bring a 2-year-old child and a lot of toys. Overall great!

    大韵韵_Kira2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Can experience the accommodation environment of locals in Kyoto very well. And very clean. Still good value for money. The host also prepared toys and sweets for the children. Personally I think the traffic is quite convenient.

    Tingting2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • We have just had the most wonderful stay at this beautiful, traditional Japanese house. From the moment we were greeted by Yukie at the train station to the moment we left (having shared a beautiful meal with the owners of the guest house the previous night) we were made to feel so very welcome and special. The house is spotlessly clean with fantastic amenities (including a very useful clothes dryer in winter!) and the most comfortable futons and beautiful warm quilts. It just felt like home (with the added bonus of a Super Nintendo!) and our children often asked for a “home day” despite the abundant activities and beautiful sights to be seen around Kyoto (many within walking distance from the guesthouse). The location is incredibly quiet and we felt safe at all times. Thank you to Yukie, Daisuke and his lovely mother for making us feel so welcome in what was my first time visiting Japan. We truly feel so lucky to have had the experience of staying in their beautiful home and city.

    京都市南区, 京都府, Japan

    Fully licensed with the city of Kyoto as a lodging provider. Travel back in time at Kinse: 250-year history with modern amenities. The suite spans the 2nd floor, and has AC, soaking tub, wi-fi, Japanese futon bedding, and tatami floors. Easy bike/transit access to all Kyoto sights. (Please note: NO kitchen.) We have two other machiya townhouses nearby with full kitchens: Kokinse A: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/17819697 Kokinse B: https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/17818811
    Before booking, please read our entire description carefully to see if the space is a good fit for your needs. Our antique building is suited best to travelers who appreciate its quirks and care about preserving it for future generations. We are fully licensed and registered with the city of Kyoto as a lodging provider. The building began its life over 200 years ago as an ageya where geisha entertained, and then became a ryokan about 100 years ago. Now we only only take one booking at a time for the second floor suite, and the first floor has a coffee shop and bar. It has been officially recognized as an historic scenic property by the city of Kyoto. On the first floor, you'll find a western style room with vaulted ceilings and many stained glass designs dating back to the early 1900s. The space houses our coffee shop and bar, which is usually open from 3 p.m. 'til 10 p.m. (closed on Tuesdays and occasionally for special events). Periodically we host concerts and other events in the space--please ask us for details about events during your stay! Once you climb the stairs to the second floor, the three bedrooms, living rooms, and soaking tub are yours to enjoy after days of Kyoto sightseeing. The atmosphere downstairs is usually relaxed and quiet, so the upstairs remains peaceful for airbnb guests.
    We are in a quiet neighborhood, which was historically a geisha district but is now a residential area. Our place is one stop away on the JR line from Kyoto Station. Access to downtown Kyoto (shijo street, gion, etc.) takes about 20 minutes by bus, 10~15 minutes by taxi, 15 minutes by bicycle. Nearby attractions: --Nishihonganji Temple, 10 min walk. Named as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, this is a working temple where you can experience buddhist services early in the morning. Impressive wooden temple structure dating to 1591. In the neighborhood to the east of the temple you can find shops selling incense, rosary beads, altars, singing bowls, and other Buddhist items. --Sumiya Museum, 2 min walk: Learn more about the geisha district heritage of the neighborhood with a visit to this historic building and garden. --Central Market, 5 min: Kyoto's version of the Tsukiji Market in Tokyo. Walk around in the morning to see seafood, meat, and produce for sale. Look for ceramics and other Japanese kitchenware in the covered market area. Try a traditional Japanese breakfast at one of the local eateries. If you plan to go here, be sure to ask us for directions! --Japanese-style baths, 2 min: After a day of temple viewing, soak and sauna your aches away at a nearby bathhouse. Your pick between the "super sento" style place (multiple soaking pools and a rooftop bath) and a smaller neighborhood bathhouse.
  • One of the more unique places we’ve stayed. We loved this beautiful, old ryokan, it really added to our time in Kyoto. Great maps and info about the neighborhood. It’s not in the center of things, but we figured out the bus and subway and had an easy time getting around. Especially loved the coffee shop downstairs. The whole building is beautiful.

    Margit2020-03-04T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommended.

    Rob2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This place is very special and very big. Best part is everyone is amazing and there is a cafe and bar downstairs where everyone is so kind. A very special unique stay. And there is a tuned piano for the musicians.

    Bradford2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful and historic place. Early check in was greatly appreciated as well as local tips.

    Rachel2020-02-14T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place, comfy and a must-see for travelers. Kind and helpful people!

    Monique2020-02-08T00:00:00Z
  • We spent a delightful 2 days in Kyoto at Seanacy and Kojiro's wonderful ryokan. They were great hosts and super accommodating. I love staying in places that have a rich history and this exceeded my expectations. The sleeping rooms and updated 100 year old lounge space were so cool and provided the perfect backdrop to our visit to Kyoto. I especially enjoyed sipping on a nice Nikka whiskey downstairs at the whiskey bar/cafe. Such a chill, awesome place. I'd love to return the next opportunity I get.

    Margaret2020-02-04T00:00:00Z
  • Great place, full of character. Really enjoyed our stay and had the best sleep. Would recommend.

    Pietro2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • One of the most beautiful and charming Airbnb’s i have stayed in. The hosts were friendly and provided great suggestions for local food and sightseeing. Very spacious and stylish space. The downstairs common is trendy and popular amongst locals and tourists. Would definitely stay here again.

  • It was a very clean hotel. The cherry blossoms and the Takase River exude a very good feeling.

    Mc2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • Location is impeccable. We extended our stay from 2 nights to 4 as there is too much to see and do in Kyoto and their place made it so convenient. Andrea and Mayumi were extremely accommodating to our requests.

    Justin2020-03-12T00:00:00Z
  • This machiya is in a fantastic location, in a charming part of Kyoto! It is also only a 10 minute bus ride to Kyoto station and a close walk to Gion, Kiyamizu-dera temple, and Ponto-cho. We met with Andrea upon arrival- he provided us with extremely helpful tips on how to plan out our Kyoto stay. If this is your first visit to Kyoto, I encourage guests to meet with the hosts. We appreciated having access to laundry as well. As the listing notes, it is perfect size for two guests.

    Neha2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great location and sparklingly clean. Wonderful hosts. Lovely traditional accommodation which provides an excellent base from which to explore Kyoto.

    Jean2020-02-26T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing stay: Hospitality was particularly outstanding. The host (Andrea) was very helpful in the check in and gave us tips and recommandations for visiting the city and even side trips, he was very knowledgeable about everything. He also showed us around and explained all the appliances (which can be a life saver if you’re not used to Japanese appliances). The appartement in itself looks even better than in the photos on airbnb, and is spotless. All necessary bathroom amenities and snacks / food seasoning are available, as well as tea, coffee etc. Location is very practical, especially when combined with the recommended restaurants / bars that Andrea will tell you about. (Tried the gyoza place and the Escamoteur bar, both great)

    Apolline2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • It's the first time I've ever felt so warm at Airbnb. ...

    주원2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The location of the house is great and you can walk both to nearby attractions and to shopping. Clean and tidy, complete facilities, the host carefully explained the surroundings for us, very considerate. Recommend to other friends visiting Kyoto

    Kyle2020-02-01T00:00:00Z
  • This is a really cute traditional apartment and with a bit of organisation was perfect for us four - 2 adults and 2 teenagers. Andrea meeting us at the start set us off really well, and it was kind of them to allow a late checkout- have us time for a lovely tea ceremony 😊

    This is a nice place to visit Kyoto, just near the river Shirakawa, a really nice place sometimes used for movies or series. The house is near Chioin, Kodaiji, Higashiyama, Yasaka shrine. Just near the house, there is an old market where you can buy and eat Japanese food.

    Gion is a really nice place with lots of restaurants and where you can play. You can also meet Maiko if you're lucky.
  • Superb house, Seiko was very accommodating and welcoming !!

    Christelle2020-03-19T00:00:00Z
  • Among the 3 accommodations that we tested during our first stay in Japan, that of Seiko is by far the best, it's our favorite! Very well located, perfectly equipped, very tastefully decorated, authentic, that's exactly what we were looking for when coming to Japan ... Seiko is a lovely and caring person. We will definitely come back! Thank you Seiko and see you soon!

    Alexandre2020-03-13T00:00:00Z
  • It was used by four people. This inn made my trip to Kyoto the best. First of all, the location was great. Within walking distance are Higashiyama Station, Gion Shijo Station and Yasaka Shrine, as well as delicious bakery shops such as Ogawa, sento, convenience store and Voroniya. But the inn is located in a quiet place with little traffic. The interior was like a modern Japanese style in Kyoto, so I thought I would live here. Also, we prepared a large amount of tea and coffee. The bath was also Japanese-style and comfortable. On the second floor there is a Japanese-style veranda with a relaxing space. It was the best service and reasonable price. When I come to Kyoto again, I want to use this. Thank you, Seiko.

    Hyu2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Great location. Timely communication. Easy to follow instructions for getting to/around the area. Beautiful home.

  • Excellent cosy house on a great location and neighbourhood. Very functional and with good futons. Seiko is a wonderful host. Sent us directions in Japanese for the taxi, and gave us tips for placing to dine and shop. Would definitely recommend Seiko’s place.

    Maria Ana2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Seiko was a very accomodating and kind host. Gave us a great tips on the ramen down the road and was very easy to communicate with. If we are ever back in Kyoto would defiantly stay here again :) :) :)

  • We had a great stay and Takahiro was extremely helpful, offering help with a water issue and even offering an alternate room. A bit of street noise at night but altogether very nice apartment with many thoughtful touches. Would recommend!

    Nadja2020-03-06T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay at Minas apartment was just perfect for the amount of time we had in Kyoto. It had everything you need when visiting a new city, very close to public transport which was most important for us as we used Kyoto for a main base while also exploring other cities near by by rail. I would definitely recommend this place if you are after a clean, stress free stay in Kyoto. Thank you again!

    Kat2020-02-07T00:00:00Z
  • At first, the room for this Chinese character was very special. The room was near Kyoto Station, which was very convenient. There is a supermarket not far downstairs that only accepts cash. It should be a place for locals to buy vegetables. The price is cheaper than Osaka, not 24 hours. There are many izakayas around, and the TV tower is also nearby, which is particularly good. The host is also very nice, and can respond to questions in a timely manner. Super great!

    2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Unbelievable cozy unique apartment. Close to the train station and several amenities in the area.

    Matthew2020-01-14T00:00:00Z
  • We really enjoyed our time spent in Kyoto, much in part to being able to stay at Mina’s place. It is very close to Kyoto station and has all the amenities we needed. The heated bathroom and goodies provided were especially nice after a long day out. We recommend Mina’s place to everyone and hope to come back again!

    Jennifer2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • A nice place located at a very convenient four-minute walk from Kyoto station as well as the Kyoto Tower that’s also accompanied by multiple convenience stores within walking distance. Check-in process was nice and easy and the room was very clean and cosy! Would recommend to anyone that’s thinking of booking :)

  • This is my 2nd time staying at Royce's place. It's always awesome there. Clean and well equip. Quite spacious. Hanazono is a nice little place that I adore. I'll always try to stop by. It's just a quick 10 min ride or so to Kyoto Station.

    Quoc2020-03-05T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place, close to JR station. Spacious rooms and cute balcony. Royce is amazing host, very quick with her response. Bikes were handy to move around as well.

    BeerAvinder2020-02-19T00:00:00Z
  • Royce’s place was so conveniently located, spacious and clean. I’d highly recommend staying here! It’s a short 4min walk (flat, no hills) from Hanazono station with no stairs for entry, so super easy access when carrying/wheeling luggage. The bamboo forest is a 20min train ride (or short bike ride) away. And Nishiki Market is a 30min train ride away. So easy! As for the place, there’s cooking facilities, a microwave and a washing machine. The two double beds were excellent. If you’re travelling as two couples, Royce’s place had a perfect setup to accomodate this. The heating was cosy. There was a couch in the living space. It was so comfortable and not cramped. The only downside I can think of is paying accommodation tax (but that is standard across Kyoto) and it was only ¥1600 at the time we stayed. Riding the bikes was also super fun and we’re super grateful Royce’s place came with 4 of them! We didn’t have to rent any. :) Thank you Royce for letting us stay! We’d highly recommend this place to other travellers and we’d definitely stay here again. There’s also a 7/11 down the road and it’s so well located near a station.

    Rebecca2020-01-31T00:00:00Z
  • I really enjoyed my stay here. Right next to the station, really clean. Friendly host. Super comfy bed and loved the bath! Was so nice after walking all day. Would stay again :)

    Kate2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • We had a forgettable trip in Kyoto, and the accommodation of Royce was one of the greats. It is really nice and cozy, clean and tidy. Facilities and amenities are completed. Great location in a residential block in the west of the Kyoto city. 3mins walk from the Hanazono station where you could get to the Kyoto station by 15mins train ride. And Royce was nice and helpful. Always giving us on time reply when we need help. I would absolutely recommend this place to my friends who are going to travel Kyoto.

    Taiki2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • Nice and great location. Fast response.

    Katelynn2020-01-17T00:00:00Z

  • I wanted to visit Lake Biwa once when sightseeing in Kyoto, so I decided to stay. The cherry blossoms at Mituji Temple were so beautiful that I was overwhelmed that this was not the case in the photos. I am very grateful to our host Masanobu for welcoming us to this difficult world. Also, when traveling to this place, I would like to take care of you. It was short, but thank you!

    小林2020-03-31T00:00:00Z
  • Masabu's house can satisfy all your fantasies about Japanese houses. The house is large, with a wooden structure. There is also a torii in the courtyard. The room facilities are well-equipped and the surrounding facilities are also very convenient. Unfortunately, there are no machines for ironing clothes. I'm glad I lived in Japan for the first time. The host was super nice. When we checked in on the first day, Zhengxin came to pick us up late because the plane was late. On the last day, we will stay at the surrounding hot spring hotel. Zhengxin also sent us over for free and helped us stay. It is a pity that my Japanese and English are poor and there is no better communication. All in all, everything was great and super recommended.

    2020-01-23T00:00:00Z
  • wonderful house and will come back next time.

    Zhaoxin2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • I like this housing experience very much, and I have been thinking about when I can come again next time. The landlord is too! it is good! It's up! Very attentive and uncle. Before we went to ask him how to get to the residence, he gave us a very detailed explanation, and went to the station to pick us up, and took us to introduce the food and accommodation costs in the room and the information you may need to know nearby. The house is good, but there is no need to say. Surprisingly large use of space and sophisticated furnishings, you can experience the traditional Japanese residents' life well while the house is practical. Taking into account the user's actual needs, each toilet even puts the sanitary towels needed by the girls, and feels the intention of the landlord from every detail. Yu Xin likes this host and this airbnb home (˘͈ ᵕ ˘͈) ♡ Thank you for your care these two days ~ Thank you, Mr. Landlord,

  • Super big, very authentic Japanese style

    玉蓉2019-12-13T00:00:00Z
  • The house is amazing! Close to the lake and Mitsui Temple. A hundred-year-old house, a bird house in the yard, a large space can accommodate a lot of people, the landlord also specifically found a friend who speaks English to communicate with me, the introduction is very careful, the price is super high, and I will go to live next time

    Mo2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • The only bed and breakfast you choose to live in in Japan. Others are hotels. The pictures are the same as the real thing. The owner is very considerate and the package is absolutely good value for money. The torii in the backyard of Juquan is the finishing touch. The small shops around are also very friendly to tourists. The Rosen convenience store staff who recognized us for two days recognized us and asked us how we enjoyed ourselves? The little brother of the ramen shop also enthusiastically recommended delicious food Otsu will come again later!

    Yui2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • The place was amazing, both Sugie and his friend who spoke English where extremely helpful.

    Kyoto Base House is a traditional Kyoto house renovated for Kyoto travelers. Great access to Kyoto station (only 9 mins, two stops) by train. The house is only 9 mins away by walk from the Otsu station (JR line). ★5 reasons why you would like this house★ 1. Easy access to Kyoto Station. 2. Best for family & group travelers (max 7ppl) 3. It's a house, not an apartment. 4. Located in such a quiet neighborhood. 5. A budget stay (much cheaper than staying in Kyoto city)
    There's a big comfortable sofa you can sleep on. You can separate each room by Husuma (Japanese style paper door). All the equipment in the house including kitchen, fridge, microwave, Wi-Fi is free to use. Please feel free to use them as you like.
    There are many restaurants. Lake Biwa (the biggest lake in Japan) is one of the best places to go and it's 15 mins walk from the house. I give every guest my recommendation on where to go around Otsu and also my favorite place to eat in Kyoto and Otsu.
  • The host is great with communication! House was dated but very clean and reasonable, especially for the price!

    Spencer2020-02-24T00:00:00Z
  • The host was really helpful and responsive. The detail access guide to the house was easy to follow. Walking duration to nearest train station Otsu is about 10mins. All amenities are there except that the urinating toilet space is very cramp. Overall it’s a pleasant stay😊

    Yong2020-01-15T00:00:00Z

    宏夢2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • Overall a pleasant home from which to enjoy Otsu, Lake Biwa and Kyoto. Communication with the host was friendly and timely. Two floor heaters were provided for our stay in early December, when the overnight low was and 5 degrees Celsius - much appreciated.

    Anthony2019-12-04T00:00:00Z
  • Overall great place to stay for a single person or young couple. The stairs could be hard on older people as they are very steep but very very nice place and great value!

    Ivan2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • This place was exactly what we wanted for our stay near Kyoto! The walk to the train station is easy and gives guests an opportunity to be in a more local neighborhood. Great communication from the hosts and very flexible with letting us check out late. I'd highly recommend this place to other guests! Thank you!

    Our house/CasaSaca is located in a famous spot with Cherry Blossoms on April & nicest view of Biwako Sosui Canal of Meiji heritage. To the central Kyoto within 35minutes by Keihan railway. Neighborhood is very quiet & safe. Built 85years ago. a traditional Japanese wooden house with 5 Tatami rooms. so historical that some building parts are old. Please accept these facts before you reserve. CasaSaca already recognized legally as a kind of Japanese Ryokan by the Otsu city government.
    i recommend you to walk around Biwako Sosui Canal of Meiji Hritage beside CasaSaca. There are Mio Shrine, Miidera temple and Nagara Shrine. They are so histrical interesting that you can feel Japanese atmosphere enough. 明治遺産、疎水運河は琵琶湖の水を京都に送るため、また水運を利用して電力発電したり、コメなどの生活物資を運ぶために造られた、日本で初めての運河です その運河に面して、ゲストハウスは建っています 近隣は静かな住宅地で、琵琶湖湖畔へ徒歩5分、園城寺三井寺にも徒歩5分 三尾神社へは徒歩2分です 京阪電車の三井寺下駅まで徒歩2分、京都市内にも1時間以内で行くことができて便利です
    Neighborhood is very quiet and safe. Neighbors are so friendly and kind to you. Recommend try to say them OHAYOU-GOZAIMASU or KONNITIWA or KONBANWA. On April cherry blossoms season so many people come to see blossoms in day and night and enjoy the beautiful sights. 閑静で静かな住宅街ですが、四月桜が満開のお花見時期には、たくさんの観光客が訪れて、とても賑わいます
  • Hirotomo was such a gracious host. Lots of little touches and amenities, tons of useful tips on locations and conveniences. So kind and generous, and we loved staying in a traditional Japanese home. So warm and the location is incredible. The perfect place to see the cherry blossoms and explore temples.

    Victoria2020-04-04T00:00:00Z
  • Fantastic Home-away-from-Home right at Lake Biwa and just a 10 minute train ride to Kyoto station. Hirotomo is truly a super-host: he is so responsive to any of the questions you might have and will make you feel right at home at Casa Saca (he even stocked the kitchen with water, bread, and coffee). At first I was looking for an airbnb in Kyoto, but then found Casa Saca and loved that it is such a beautiful traditional Japanese home. It is much more affordable than accommodations in Kyoto and really just a 10 minute train ride away from Kyoto station (+ about a 15-20 minute lovely walk to JR Ōtsu station; there is also a Keihan station just a 3 minute walk from Casa Saca, but the Keihan connection to Kyoto takes a little longer). Casa Saca's location is incredible: it is right next to Lake Biwa canal and just minutes away walking to the famous Miidera Temple and Lake Biwa (where you can take lovely walks along the shore heading south east towards and past Hamaotsu). There is a grocery store a mere 8 minute walk away, and right along the same shopping street I found a wonderful little pub/ izakaya (Nakayasu) that has live blues & jazz music every night (closed on Sundays). I stayed at Casa Saca from early February till mid March and wish I could have stayed longer. It was still quite cold when I arrived, but I had a wonderful futon with an electric heated blanket to keep me warm at night and the water for your bath at night is nice and hot. The tatami bedroom up-stairs and the entrance room downstairs have wall mounted ac units and there are lots of portable heaters available to heat the kitchen, bathroom, and other rooms. The kitchen is equipped with everything you will ever need to cook for yourself and the microwave even has a setting to bake cookies (Japanese kitchens don't really have ovens, so this microwave was a nice surprise for a cookie lover). You have western style tables and chairs in the kitchen and entrance room, and a traditional kotatsu and nice tv in the tatami living room. I had lots of room to have my family visit me at Casa Saca and a beautiful view of Lake Biwa Canal from the upstairs bedroom (prime location especially if you come during the cherry blossom season as the entire canal is lined with cherry trees). Hirotomo is a former architect and a fantastic tour guide not just for Otsu, but also Kyoto, and Shigaraki, was so kind to not only tour Kyoto with my nephew and me, but also introduce us to a number of amazing potters in Shigaraki (one of the most famous pottery areas in Japan) I mostly came to Japan to visit and work with Japanese potters, and to enjoy the sights in Kyoto, and then I was so surprised by all the amazing temples, sights and old Edo-Period homes that you can find right there in Ōtsu. Can't recommend this place highly enough!

    Dorothee2020-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • It is a shame that we did not come during the cherry blossom season. Mitsui-ji Temple and Lake Biwa are full of sakura trees, so when you think about it, they will be spectacular. The house is an old house, which requires high facilities and may not be suitable. But the collection and details in the house will make you feel the house is worth the money.

    东贵2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Hirotomo’s home was a great place to stay at. Close to Kyoto but still far enough away to have its own charm. A place you should for sure stay at if you are in Kyoto and looking for an authentic Japanese home experience. Hirotomo is a great host who provides you with more than you need. Very friendly and helpful. We hope to stay with him again in the future if possible. Thanks again for a wonderful time Hirotomo.

    Mia2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • Nice place! Thanks Hirotomo!

    Giri2019-11-28T00:00:00Z
  • It is a lovely traditional Japanese style home. Simple and with lots of family history. The location is ideal, 2 blocks from Miidera Train Station so getting around anywhere is quick and convenient. I hope to have the opportunity to come again in 2021. Hirotomo is definitely a super host.

    Ivan2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • There is a place with history and details, and you will not want to go. I like it here, and I like the feeling of a quiet town around me.

    梦蝶2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Had such a wonderful stay in Casa Saca! It was made even more wonderful with the generous hospitality of Hirotomo who took me out into Kyoto for the day and showed me all of his favourite spots. Beautiful location and only 25 minutes away from Kyoto Centre! Would love to stay here again when I next visit Japan.

Breakfast, basic really, cereal, espresso , tea , something easy . The New Kyoto city hotel tax does not apply to Hieizan Sakamoto
    Your quiet home to come back to after the hustle and bustle of sightseeing in Kyoto. A quiet time to reflect ( with a glass of wine ) over the day . And when you are tired of the crowds in Kyoto I hope you will look around Sakamoto, there is a lot to see. In Kyoto, you are a customer but here you are still a guest and the locals will be interested in you and where are you from etc .
    Sakamoto is a delight a sort of hidden gem, lots of quiet temples , hiking trails and yet easy to get into Kyoto and beyond if you want to. Kyoto is basically in the center of Japan many places can be done on a day trip , cheap ( if you have a JR pass )
  • Absolutely loved our time at Jonnis Place. Cannot recommend enough. Wish we could have stayed longer!! Thanks again Jonni!!

    Ioan2019-11-26T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed 5 nights at Jonni's home. The stay was peaceful with most amazing hospitality. Jonni, a through gentleman, made our stay memorable. It is located around 20 to 30 min travel one way to Kyoto Station. However Jonni picks up & drops too and from a Station nearby and the train travel is cover in the JR pass. The home is done up with lot of love and fully functional.

    Mitesh2019-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • Laughing with Jonni was a highlight of our trip! Jonni is very kind and Sakamoto is a nice place to stay if you want to be outside Kyoto. Experiencing fall was wonderful.

    Sam2019-11-15T00:00:00Z
  • Jonni’s place is an absolute must to stay! No question about it! Fantastic host, warm, charming, respectful and most of all Jonni had a great sense of humour. His home is an excellent mix of western and Japanese lifestyles, and quickly becomes your home-away-from-home. Sakamoto - the history, the architecture, the temples and shrines, the gardens, everything about this place is ....just beautiful! The real Japan experience is in Jonni’s backyard. Only 15 min by JR train to Kyoto Station. 9 days was not enough for us, but we enjoyed every moment. HUGE thanks to a wonderful host who opened up his home and heart. Cheers the Wondering Kiwi’s

  • Every early morning, I leaned on the bed to welcome the sunrise. Orange~pink~aureate~ I watched the drifting clouds, gradual color sky, the calm lakethe, the distant mountains, and If the curtain is open the stars that fall on the ground at night. Moment is eternal. By the way,Look out of the bedroom,It's a bit like Venice when it's rainy.hahhahahha~ I like Jonni and everything about him.Thanks jonni for everything. Jonni is unforgettable! Lying on the bed, you can see the stars falling on the ground in the clear night. You can see the flowing clouds, the gradual blue sky, the looming mountains, and the lakes in the clear sky. There is another kind of beauty in the rain. dream! 2019/10/13. 17:30. In front of the bedroom window, I saw the wonders of the bright moon on the lake, so beautiful~! Handsome and elegant Jonni is an artist! Hahahahahaha

  • Jonni’s place is great, the best airbnb stay we have ever been to. Jonni is a great host and we felt at home. He went out of his way to pick and drop us at the station daily. We enjoyed talking and laughing with him and learning about the neighbourhood and Japan. He showed us all the nearby places in Sakamoto. The stay has been the highlight of the trip so far. We recommend everyone to visit Sakamoto and stay at Jonni’s. It is a quite place and not too far from Kyoto. PS: If you get the lake facing room, please see the sunrise from window, it is amazing.

    Shashank2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • Jonni’s place is perfect for travelers who want a peaceful environment to enjoy that is just a short train ride into Kyoto. Jonni is extremely hospitable and happy to give recommendations of things to do in the area. He went above and beyond to make us feel at home.

    Abby2019-07-12T00:00:00Z
  • “Jonni’s Place” is a calm, tastefully decorated and appointed oasis that I’ve just had the pleasure of staying at for 3 nights, wish it had been more. It’s conveniently located close to the local train station, but Jonni does kindly pick you and drop you off if needed, but the walk is only a 10-15 minutes and Kyoto is a short train ride away. The location of Sakamoto is lovely and peaceful and there’s a number of interesting places to visit close to his home. Jonni is a very kind and humorous host and he freely gives information, advice and guidance about the locality, places to visit, Japan and much more. I highly recommend anyone to stay here, you won’t regret it. I hope to do again when I return to Japan.

  • Taketo is very nice and helpful as host, and the room is cozy and clean, especially the well-decorated Japanese style room, perfect to enjoy the tea time there. We enjoyed our week at this Home at Kyoto :) The host Taketo is warm and welcoming, and he provides all kinds of travel-related information and help very carefully. Thank you! The whole house is fully equipped, spacious and clean, and the living is very convenient and comfortable. During the week here, I tried the nearby Izakaya and Yakiniku restaurants, as well as the pudding shop and bakery, which were all delicious! Opposite the house is Suixinyuan, which is the quietest night tour in the whole maple season. Not far away, as well as Daigou Temple, which can be reached by bus, is also worth visiting!

The interior of the room is spacious and the facilities are very convenient. I really don't regret choosing this hotel. It is unexpectedly comfortable to sleep with tatami in the room. Very recommended

  • It’s a pity that I only stayed for 3 days. If I can, I will live for a month. The electrical appliances are first class and the bath is very comfortable. The bathroom is top and comfortable. The gas stove is super smart. I don’t want to go out when I stay at home. At the door, the whistling drums of the taco drums are delicious and weeping. When we go to the next day, we have already snorted. It’s a pity. I lived so close but didn't go to the temple, sorry.

Also check in and check out were super easy and Taketo really arranging. The place is not in Kyoto center but easily accessible with metro. I definitely recommend this place :)

  • Great house and experience. The rooms are spacious and the kitchen supplies are full. The important thing is that the landlord picks up and drops off every day on the commute. It is so considerate and moved to cry.

    Ōtsu-shi, Shiga-ken, Japan

    Our house is located in a very convenient place. There are supermarkets and convenience stores nearby.The nearest JR station is Otsu which is only two stations to Kyoto, takes 9 min. (8 min. walk to Otsu station from the house.) there's also Keihan line to Kyoto with 20min.
    We have two bedrooms on the first floor. There's also a sink and a toilet on the floor. The second floor is the shared area which has a living room, dining room, kitchen and a bathroom.
    Otsu is a very convenient place to live. It takes 10 min. to Kyoto and 39 min. to Osaka by JR train. Also there is the biggest lake in Japan here in Shiga. You can walk to the lake from the house.
  • Positive stay. Clean environment. Host (Yukiko) was very nice. Plus the location is only minutes from Kyoto Station and in-between two transportation train lines.

    Brian D.2020-01-21T00:00:00Z
  • Yukiko is very nice and the house feel warm!

    Wen2019-12-01T00:00:00Z
  • The rooms are western-style decorated, very clean and tidy, and the accommodation is in good condition. Moreover, it is very close to the JR line and the main railway line, and the transportation is convenient. There are super malls and shopping streets around it, and shopping is convenient. Small cities are small and friendly. The host was very nice to us, and rarely spoke good English. In short, it was a very comfortable stay.

    Yu2019-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • I really enjoyed my stay at Yukiko's house. The place is sparkling clean despite the lavish decorations. The location is great too, just a minute away from the Otsu festival museum, and just 10-12 minutes to both JR Station and the waterfront. The kitchen is very well equipped for whipping together your breakfast or dinner. Finally, communication was very easy, as Yukiko would always reply to messages promptly and to the point. Thanks again for a memorable stay!

    Deyan2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Miss Yukiko: Thank you very much, your kitchen, bathroom, toilet and even the dining room and the living room. You can show that you are so customer-oriented, considerate and very hospitable, and hope that all tenants can maintain yukiko together. The various facilities are neat and often kept the same. In the JR station around the lake, there are many cheap car rentals available. Compared with the crowds in downtown Kyoto, I think this 4-day trip in Otsu City, Shiga Prefecture is a great memory. Thank you Mrs. Yukiko for providing clean. Beautiful house and room for us to use. This room, just like the size of a double room in downtown Kyoto, is just a good size. It is recommended that the tenants use the kitchen table living room. The owner is very caring and hospitable. For the visitors who are preparing to visit, please refer to ~

  • It is a very beautiful inn and has a lovely interior, so I think women are especially happy. It was a convenient location in the city of Otsu, and the car was also stopped.

  • The host was a very good uncle. On the day of the arrival, there was a problem with the map and I personally came to the subway station to pick us up. The house is very Japanese style, and I live very comfortably. It is 10 minutes away from the subway station.

    陆轶2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • The house is about 20 minutes walking distance from Otsukyo Station. It may be a bit difficult to find. After leaving the station, go straight for about 10 minutes to a large intersection and turn right for a few minutes. Then turn left at the next intersection and go straight. It will arrive, passing by a Kirindo drug store in the middle. If you go shopping, there is a newly opened square nearby, with Uniqlo GAP and nitori, and further forward there are yeon, び っ く り ド ン キ, and barbecue restaurant ramen shop drug store. The homeowner and grandpa are very kind, can also speak English, and will enthusiastically tell you how to walk around. The bed in the room is very comfortable and the sound insulation is not very good.

    宇静2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Location 10-15 minutes walk from JR station. Room C is facing the street. There is a big supermarket next to it, you can buy cooked food and eat it home, it's great! Will consider staying again next time.

    文杰2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very quiet and tidy. The landlord's grandfather certainly didn't bother. The grandfather is very kind. If it's not time, I would like to have a good chat together. I would like to live here if I go to Kyoto in the future. If you are in traffic, walk one kilometer to JR Otsukyo Station. Although it is a little far away, it is comfortable to live ~

    2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • If I am in Kyoto, I will definitely stay here again. The place is very clean and comfortable. Aritoshi is very nice and friendly host. The guesthouse is located in a nice quiet neighborhood, but is only 2 stations from Kyoto station. Thank you for your hospitality, Aritoshi-san.

    Natalia2019-12-25T00:00:00Z
  • It ’s so good, it ’s so good, it ’s clean, it ’s very warm, and it feels like home. I and the child are not alone anymore, and the child is very reluctant to leave when he leaves. Having fun with grandpa. The cottage is very beautiful and exquisite, where you don't want to go. You can go to the lake to play with sand. Downstairs, the supermarket is cheap and delicious. You can cook by yourself and everything is perfect. The best homestay to stay. The only regret is that I do not speak Japanese. Language communication is not a problem. Love is a good place.

    2019-12-10T00:00:00Z
  • The room I stayed at is the largest private room in this guesthouse. The bed was large and I could take a rest slowly. There are air conditioner, desk, chair, closet, tissue, trash can in the room. Toilets are on the 1st and 2nd floors. The shared space, the kitchen, the living room, and the bath, are also cleaned by the host Aritoshi. Talking with host Aritoshi and other guests in the living room, I felt very at home. Having a dinner with a foreign guest is a very good memory. In front of the guesthouse there is a drugstore Aoki, next to the drugstore Kirin-do, supermarket friend Mart, and a commercial facility (2019.11.29open) with UNIQLO nearby.

    Seiko2019-12-09T00:00:00Z
  • It is very close to Lake Biwa, and it is convenient to go to the Baixu Shrine and the old bamboo forest courtyard. There is a large supermarket drug store within 100 meters. The host is a lovely old grandfather. He is talkative, fun and enthusiastic. He feels like family and loves it. Unfortunately, he only stayed for one night and did not experience the beauty of Otsu.

  • This was my third time staying with Guia and Michael - they are awesome people that I really enjoy spending time with! Highly recommended!

    Steve2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • What a pleasure to stay in Guia's lovely house ! Very nice room, quiet, close to the magnificent Daigo-ji temple. Shops and restaurants, bus stations and metro nearby. Wonderful welcome from Guia !

    Florence2019-11-27T00:00:00Z
  • That was really good stay. The place is great, very cosy, quiet neighborhood, next to a temple that I was going through everyday. Location is bit remote but that wasn't a problem at all. I was offered a bicycle for whole my stay which I used for riding through city or just getting to train station so that's in fact that's even a good side. The hosts are extremely nice, hospitable and helpful. It's was good time sharing experiences each morning and evening as well as learning about the area and how it is to live in Japan. Overall great stay, really glad that I choose them than yet another boring capsule hotel :)

    Jakub2019-11-04T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful room and kind host made my trip in Kyoto brilliant! The house is near the Daigo Station, you would need time to get there (The tranquility atmosphere, the wonderful scene and the fresh air are definitely worth for that.) The host Guia and Michael are so kind and helpful. The room in their house is a clean, spacious and comfortable. I really hope I can stay longer with them. I really recommend anyone travel to Kyoto to stay in Guia and Michael's place!

    Maggie Wei Chung2019-10-25T00:00:00Z
  • Guia and Michael are very welcoming. The room is a great tatami room. It’s a bit of a hike to the subway, maybe 15 minutes. But it’s not bad, if you don’t want to walk you probably shouldn’t come to Japan in the first place lol. It’s right next to a very cool old temple, which doesn’t have huge crowds so I highly recommend seeing it. Including the climb to the top, it took me all day starting from when it opened. You could probably do it faster but I wouldn’t want to hurry.

    Lawrence2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time staying at Guia and Michael's place, highly recommend staying here while exploring Kyoto. They made us feel at home with their amazing hospitality. Thank you so much for all your local tips, we will definitely be coming back. Happy days 🙏🙂

    Masoomeh2019-07-19T00:00:00Z
  • Perfect location in the mountains, a family very pleasant and welcoming, very clean and with a very good value for money, my second stay at home was once again very pleasant, I recommend!

    Medhy2019-05-23T00:00:00Z
  • Comfortable place to stay with fantastic hosts! Guia went out of her way to quickly answer questions and give local tips. We really appreciated her hospitality and it’s the highlight of place! Be aware that if you are traveling with luggage it’s a good 15 minute walk with the end being uphill. A little tough for my pregnant self and older mom. But once we got settled in and no longer were traveling with our luggage, the walk to the house from the bus stop/subway was much easier!!

  • The location was impeccably wonderful. Just a few meters from Karasaki Shrine, one of the eight Omi Views, it was an ideal location for those who like walking. We had bicycles for two people, and we were able to go shopping to the grocery store comfortably. On a windy day, the windows in the bedroom swing, so I think it's a good idea to close the shutter.

    康亮2020-03-26T00:00:00Z
  • I used this inn for 3 days 2 nights. The inn was very clean and very comfortable! Nearby there is also a shrine where you can see Lake Biwa, and Omi Jingu Shrine, which was the stage for a little drive. Convenience stores and pharmacies are within walking distance. Super public baths and donki are also in a good location because they are within driving distance! The host was very friendly and it was a hotel I would like to use again.

  • Mr. Mitsunobu of the landlord was a very kind person. I went there by JR, but when I arrived at the station, I contacted me and told me the road in detail and had the air conditioner turned on in advance. When we arrived, the room was already warm. He also introduced me to a very delicious Sanuki udon restaurant, so I was able to eat warm and delicious Sanuki udon in the cold evening. The room is also a nice room. Waking up in the morning, the morning sun was visible from the window, and it was a wonderful view. In other seasons, such as summer, you can imagine sitting on the chair on the back wooden deck and drinking coffee while enjoying the view of Lake Biwa. I think I will come again if I have the opportunity to go to Lake Biwa again. Mitsunobu gave me some advice on sightseeing, and the next day I toured Enryaku-ji Temple, I could visit Shirahige Shrine with a torii in the lake, and on my way back I could stroll along the embankment along Lake Biwa. When I left Otsu on the last day and returned to Osaka, I was sent to JR Hieizan Sakamoto Station by car as an extra, and it was really helpful. 从 房间 就 可以 直接 看 一望无际 的 际 Lake Biwa , 风景 真的 太棒 了!房间 后面 还有 分 露台 、 只 可以 夜 天天 冷 、 夏天 的 话 、 话 可以 坐 里 里 、 一边 克 边 一边 欣赏 Biwako-like beautiful scenery. Since the end of the summer, the Lake Biwa and Yayakai have been rebuilt. 房东 人 很好, 回应, 到达 之前 帮 我们 前 前 打开 空等, etc. 们 们 们 候 候 间 间 经 经 经 经 经. Also, we have to reconcile the restaurant. The second day offer will be provided by the Guangzhou Railway Station. Indispensable point! !

    Weiqing2020-01-24T00:00:00Z
  • Mitsunobu’s place was such a great break from the busy city of Tokyo. Easily one of my favorite stops we stayed in while visiting Japan. We arrived a little early and Mitsunobu was quick to respond and allowed us to check in early. He was able to provide great suggestions on where to eat and provide directions on the nearest stores. My husband is a fisherman and one of his goals in Japan was to fish and Mitsunobu was so kind to answer all his fishing questions and allowed him to throw a line out. The best part of our stay was the back patio overlooking the lake. With a combination of jet lag and being a morning person, we were able to catch the sunrise each morning while we were there. He was even kind enough to bring us cup of ramen one morning as we were on the patio drinking coffee. Another great perk are the bicycles that he let us borrow. Everyone bikes in Japan and it felt good blending in and exploring the beautiful neighborhood on a bike! His place is a short walk from the station where you can access all the touristy attractions of Kyoto! The bathroom and shower were very clean and the kitchen was well equipped. If you’re looking for a nice, quiet, clean and breathtaking place to stay, Mitsunobu’s place is a perfect tiny home that we definitely would want to come back to!

There are eateries and a supermarket beside the train station. Lake Biwa is about 20min walk away. Easy to get to Kyoto or the rest of Lake Biwa from here too.

  • It's a very comfortable and traditional Japanese building. The bathtub is small but very like a baby in the mother's belly and It's warm and comfortable. It's very quiet and near the station. The landlord is very nice. Thank you.

The environment where you can have a barbecue on the veranda right from the kitchen was wonderful. A stove was also lent. The futon was also fluffy and could sleep well. I am very grateful to be able to enjoy it.

The place itself is in good location, if you are a person who want to visit Biwa Lake as well as going to Kyoto for two-day visit, it is also very convenient. Have to say the restaurant nearby the Otsu station is great. We slept well for all 3 days here, it is a very quiet place at nigh. We enjoyed our stay here very much.

  • Close to the station and close to coin parking. The building itself is old, but it is devised to be easy to use and there is no problem at all. Also, Showa Japan! It was such a house! I felt nostalgic. Although I was a beginner for a private stay, I was kind enough to handle it and used it with peace of mind. Also, I was glad that there was water ready when I arrived. thank you for helping me.

    Cosy apartment, fully equipped with all house devices and supplies. Perfect location! Free pocket WiFi for our guests. Its all you need to enjoy Kyoto!!!EASY ACCESS from Kyoto Station with 1 station by subway. The apartment doesn't have an elevator. So please up stairs. I'm sorry for inconvenience.
    I'm making the room now. I'm going to put the bed (bed size is 140×200㎝), table and two chairs. I'll update pictures in few days. I have to say that the apartment doesn't have an elevator. Apartment has perfect location( address of the house - 561 shimourokogatachow shimogyouku) . There is a rental bicycle shop at 2 minutes on foot.Its only 10 min or less on the bike to Gion. There are convenience stores, supermarkets and famous rental kimono shop (yumeyakata) about 3 minutes on foot. Room is new, clean and quiet with simple decoration. But unfortunately you have to up stairs. I'm really sorry for inconvenience. It will be perfect place to get peace and rest before long days of sightseeing ( so many places to see in Kyoto that 24 hours a day always feels too short!). There is washing machine without dryer on the balcony. All supplies like shampoo, body soap, hair conditioner, toothbrushes, towels, drinks in the fridge and tea, coffee. Apartment is only to your disposition. Nobody else will share room with you so please feel free to use all amenities in the house. Neighborhood is very nice with easy access to popular places like Gion, Arashiyama and Kiyomizu temple etc.
    You can see Kamo river near the apartment.

  • Kenta’s place is a perfect home away from home in Kyoto! The apartment contained everything you could need, and was super clean and comfortable, and it’s located in a central area, easy to get around the city by train, bus, or walking from here. We would definitely stay here again, thanks, Kenta! 😊

  • Li is very enthusiastic. Her enthusiasm index is very high. I am considered a high-index extrovert, but I cannot detect her peak enthusiasm. Houses and rooms and services are very good as homestays. I believe that people who travel frequently will accept and give good reviews. The Shanghai people Li said upstairs in front of me might not be right. She described the Yangtze River Delta as Shanghai, haha! Just like Tokyo Economic Zone and Tokyo locals must be different. The day before yesterday Li told me that I would like to come to your fellow Shanghainese tonight, haha! I waited until the "old man" arrived to say hello to them, as soon as I knew it was a Changzhou native. You can't blame Li, for 30 years in Japan, how can you share that! It is difficult to distinguish even those in southern China who are not in Shanghai. I am a native of Shanghai, and I have long been concerned about the changes and formation of Shanghai ’s regional culture. I do n’t have much time with Li to talk about this step. In fact, it is still very culturally and economically important to distinguish people from different regions. In particular, the homestay has also worked hard in the market. Thanks again for the enthusiasm and thoughtfulness of LI, and also for the cute puppy who has seen her twice, very obedient, noisy and noisy, welcoming guests in a completely different way from Li, quiet and gentle. Goodbye!

    Teo2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Sister Lily is a very temperamental, very sunny and very kind landlord. Thanks to the care of lily sister on my journey, I have had a very enjoyable and fulfilling journey. The room was very clean and comfortable, and every corner wanted to take pictures and make a souvenir. Will still choose Lily sister in the future

    2019-08-15T00:00:00Z
  • The landlord is hospitable, will prepare breakfast, and pick up and drop off to the subway station every day. It can be said that it is very thoughtful. The place where you live is very small and clean.

    嘉琦2019-08-13T00:00:00Z
  • After living for a week, the rating is definitely 5 stars +. The landlord Lily is very hospitable, and the breakfast is not heavy, delicious and beautiful every day. After living for a week, the landlord was afraid that we were working hard outside, and specially invited us to have three dinners. This kind of caring and warmth is not felt in the hotel. The house is in a residential area, very clean, tidy and sleep quiet. The location is near the Yamako Station, and the Yamako Station has JR trains and east-west subways. The distance from Yamagata Station to Kyoto Station is one stop. Take JR at 8:30 in the morning and the landlord drives us to the station. From the landlord's house, go to the station and take the 48th road.

    Yu2019-05-28T00:00:00Z
  • The landlord Lily is very enthusiastic, the house decoration is very stylish, it is my favorite Nordic style, casual shooting is very beautiful! Lily is simply a live map of Kyoto. If you have any questions, you can ask her. She will also be very enthusiastic to explain to the guests. Very good accommodation experience~

    亚如2019-04-18T00:00:00Z
  • The house is very clean and tidy and has a design that is exactly the same as the photos provided, and is a good choice for friends who care about cleanliness and comfort. There is no big problem with commuting at the house location. In addition to the morning and evening transfers provided by Lily, it is also possible to take a taxi (about 1000 yen) or 48 buses from Shanke Station. Passengers do not need to worry. Finally, the passionate Lily sister will provide travel-related strategies and lovely breakfasts, allowing visitors to make the most effective use of time to jump to Kyoto. Overall, it is a great living experience in Japan, thanks to Lily!

    2019-04-14T00:00:00Z
  • Lily is from China and communicates completely without pressure. It is especially recommended that Chinese tourists come to live here. The decoration of the house is Nordic style, and many of the furniture are made by Lily. The house is clean and comfortable. Lily is particularly thoughtful and enthusiastic, and she is very smart and will prepare a good breakfast. In order to facilitate the tenants, at 8:30 in the morning and at 8:00 in the evening, the sister can pick you up. If the trip is appropriate, it is super convenient. Lily sister is a person who can make friends, is willing to pay, you are good to her, she will be a better person for you, in short, a great experience!

    李先生2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • There are very few tourists in Otsu, very quiet and nearby attractions are also only a small part of the tour around Lake Biwa. The room is very suitable for family to live together

    2019-11-21T00:00:00Z
  • The place was awesome. Booked it for 28 days for a business trip. Location is excellent, not to far from Otsu station and close to Biwa lake. I like the fact that this property has two different types of rooms. One being Japanese style where you can have mattress on floor and experience unique Japanese interior. I stayed in that room and i loved it. The other room is a bit modern where you have regular mattress and interior. Would recommend this place.

    Jigar2019-10-31T00:00:00Z
  • Great Space outside Kyoto, ideal to explore the local surrounds or a short ride (20’) into Kyoto Centre. The place is spacious with 2 double rooms with plenty of space for 4 of us. Clean and well prepared. Highly recommend

  • A very unexpected environment around a house is very quiet. Next to it is the 711 recharge ICOCA card. It is very convenient for the host. The house is also very nice. The house is very kind. The traditional Japanese-style house I want to find may be a little bit cold in the winter but the kiln is very warm! It's not cold and comfortable when I turn on the air conditioner! Overall very satisfied!

    安琪2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • This is a traditional Japanese traditional homestay with two floors above and below, a bathroom downstairs, bathroom, kitchen, living room, and one room. Upstairs washing machine, balcony, two rooms. I purposely chose a homestay with a balcony. For a family trip, the most important thing is to wash clothes and hang clothes, and to sleep enough. It is also convenient to get to the bed and breakfast from Kansai Airport. It is a little distance to walk at Yamako Station. It seems like eight to ten minutes. There is a Shinomiya station next to it (should it be a subway?), And then go out and basically depart at Shinomiya. At the beginning, Japan Transportation didn't understand it, and became confused. The room will be dark, the air conditioner is one floor, but equipped with many electric heaters. There is everything in the bed and breakfast, cleansers are available, and the spices are complete. Still quite convenient.

    用户26322020-01-29T00:00:00Z
  • What a great glimpse into traditional living in Kyoto! The space was amply large for our party, but let it be known to whoever takes the bedroom with the balcony: There is no space to store your luggage, and there is only a single electrical outlet in that room. Other than that, it was a great space, and suited our needs well. Loved coming home to a kotatsu at the end of our chilly excursions, and the host thought to put flowers in the vase to welcome us. A note on the location: It is VERY close to Shinomiya Station, but the train runs infrequently if you're used to Tokyo schedules, and you'll more often than not be using Yamashina Station, which is about a ten-ish minute walk. All in all, a great experience.

    Mie2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • The location is easy to find and the room is clean. Japanese-style house, it is very fresh to live. We arrived a little late and the landlord always cared about our situation and was very considerate. There is a kimono in the living room, which is really enjoyable in winter. The bedroom felt cold at first, just warmed up and slept soundly at night. All in all very satisfied.

    撒旦大魔王2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • If you like to experience an old style kyoto traditional house, this is the one. Thank you Maria for allowing us the stay at your beautiful house. My family loves sleeping on the futon. Very spacious and plenty of room to cater for big families.

  • Very close to sightseeing spots in Kyoto and the price was great! It was very beautiful and I was impressed with the facilities such as bath and washing machine. Netflix, Amazon Prime and YouTube were also comfortable to watch on TV. The staff was kind, and when I heard the parking lot with the message of AirBee, they had a photo with a polite and quick response. Cospa God!

  • As you say, the road is narrow to go by car. However, there are not many oncoming vehicles.

    Tetsuyoshi2019-09-16T00:00:00Z
  • A very great and clean accommodation. It’s near by the train station. We needed a house near by Kyōto and this accommodation was perfect. We were very satisfied and would come back at any time :)

    Maximilian2019-08-31T00:00:00Z
  • Mayuka went above and beyond her obligations as a host. Even before we arrived, she was already helping us with our inquiries about local services to help us with planning our trip. She gave detailed instructions about check in, operating appliances (which especially helps given we cannot read Japanese), and taking the train to and from Kyoto. She also gave us rides to and from the station to help us with our luggage, and checked in to make sure we were safe during the typhoon. We had a lovely stay and couldn't thank her enough for all that she did!

    Mary Jan2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • It was very beautiful. However, since I had to keep quiet after 22:00, I was very careful. I think this room is not suitable for group students.

    もももこ2019-08-09T00:00:00Z
  • Couldn’t have been better! The place is a quiet, clean, spacious and calming place. You can’t hear the noise of the streets in the apartment. The whole place made us feel at ease. I’d recommend it!

  • I would like to thank Yukiko for hosting me. She is very quick in her response and helpful. The apartment is very conveniently located. It is around a 10 minute walk from Otsu station (takes 10 mins, 2 stops to Kyoto, JR trains are frequent) and only 4 mins' walk to Hamaotsu Station of Keihan Ishiyama Sakamoto Line. Transportation is therefore convenient for all major sightseeing places in Kyoto and Otsu. The apartment is located in a residential area, you will enjoy good sleep because no noise of cars or even neighbours. The G/F are two guest rooms, with a washroom and a washing basin. 1/F is the kitchen, dining area, bathroom and washroom. Therefore, no problem with sharing washroom and washing basin with guests in the other room. The washing machine and dryer are very efficient. All facilities are kept clean and tidy. One thing to note is the stairs. You need to use the stairs often for going to kitchen and bathroom. Otsu is away from busy Kyoto. The sightseeing places are nice here with few tourists and you can also enjoy the autumn foliage here. I had a very enjoyable stay in the apartment. Highly recommended.

  • Yukiko-san is a friendly, nice host who is so helpful to offer you information or advices of exploring Otsu as well as having nice chats. Besides, her house is tidy, well-organised with everything needed and I must say it is one of the most beautiful houses I have stayed at. I have a really nice stay here, 誠にありがとうございました:)

  • The space created carefully one by one is very cozy and fulfills the princess's desire! The owner was very kind and felt that personality was appearing in the room! It was an inn where you would want to stay if you could!

We were able to spend comfortably as if we were at home in lovely room. I would like to use it again next time.
