We were so lucky to find this charming two bedroom apartment - recently renovated to a very high standard and located in a quiet street just meters away from the busier boulevards of Higashiyama. It's compact but thoughtfully and creatively designed - two sunny bedrooms with confortable futons and pillows (even for my 6 foot 3 husband), a reasonably generous traditional Japanese bathroom with a great shower and lots of hot water, and a small kitchen eating area. The washing machine and dryer was a welcome bonus! Higashiyama is a lovely area as a base from which to explore Kyoto - with its own important temples and shrines, close to the restaurants and night life of Ginza and very close to the best coffee shop in Kyoto at % Arabica. Chika was a welcoming and considerate host - sourcing tickets for us to Miyako Odori performance at short notice. She's opening a small cafe below which will be serving breakfast and lunch and we did a 'practice' breakfast one morning which was delicious.
