If walking isn't your idea of a vacation, no problem! The city bus pass for tourists is available at the reception desk and is very convenient. If you are arriving... More

Although the guesthouse is a little bit of a hike from the Kyoto station (~35 min walk, or a 15 min cab ride), it's well worth it for it's location. Easy access to most sites within the Higashiyama districts on the eastern side of the city, and is close to public transit so you can get elsewhere. My brother and... More

A nice hostel with helpful staff. The environment and atmosphere was really nice and japanese. They had their own cozy bar with nice music. Only thing missing was the people. But a great place to stay.

he location is ok, not far to from downtown and close to some of the main temples. The staff are very friendly and helpful. It's a rather small guesthouse so you won't find a buzzing atmoshphere. The walls are thin like in most of the traditional Japanese guesthouses. It seems obvious that you should be quiet when you're in the... More
