We stayed at Salon Haraguchi the last week of May. There are lots of positives about this beautiful old traditional house. It's in a quiet location in a park. The walk might not be for everyone but the taxi will take you to the door if required. The hike to the top of the mountain behind the house is fantastic... More

I stayed here with my wife for 4 days in June and it was just what we expected. A charming old house with the most delightful owners. They took their time to show us the house, the area and even offered to drive us around to various tourist sites. My wife and I are active so we borrowed their two... More

My husband and I with three young children (6, 3 and 8mo)stayed at the Salon for 5 nights. We had the house to ourselves with two futons set up in the downstairs room and two in the upstairs room where my husband and I stayed with our baby in a portacot. A lot of the reviews here say that the... More

We stayed there during the cheery blossom season. The house is in the middle of the park, it was a pleasant walk everyday going out and coming back. The host was very nice and helpful. We learnt lots of good tips of what to see and where to eat etc. We would love going back again!

We stayed at Haragaguchi-san's apartment, after finding that the Salon wasn't available for our dates. What a great find!! After staying at about 6 places in Japan, we agreed that when you take into account price, size, comforts and location, this was the best accommodation we had. The Salon house would have been shared with another family, but the apartment... More

Haraguchi sama and his lovely wife are friendly and kindly. We have a great time in Kyoto. The location is nearby the Kiyomizu Temple. It's also convenient to take bus to everywhere of the city.

We stayed here in January for three nights and could not have been happier. It was very cold in Kyoto and the accommodation is simple but well heated in the rooms and the futons were comfortable. The location and the history of the building is what makes this place. We could walk to many of the sites as well as... More

We stayed 4 nights at Kiyomizu tenseian. Its a really nice apartment (pretty big, 4 rooms/2 bedroom and a bathroom) close to the goyozaka bus stop (1 min walking) and to all temples in higashiyama and gion (all easily accessible walking). Takushi is for sure the best host you can find. He gave us a lot of amazing informations about... More

Stayed in this house located within the park a while ago but the good memories are still there. Amazing location in the park which was not difficult to navigate, beautiful, spacious house that was not cold in early spring with abundance of heaters and blankets, good value for money and a friendly host with extremely useful advice on good places...
