Our family of five adults rented the Machiya during the Gion Matsuri. We were able to walk to the festival and to various temples. The house was very clean and comfortable and is in a quiet street with a supermarket nearby. Thomas and Reiko were a pleasure to deal with. They left us maps with highlighted details and called to... more

We stayed six nights in this machiya and it is truly beautiful. Everything is so authentically period Japanese - tatami mat floors, gentle lighting in the alcoves to enhance the artwork, gorgeous deep bath, lovely peaceful garden - yet at the same time it has all the necessary mod cons, from a washer/dryer to high speed internet. The owners had... more
