Had an excellent time at the Earthship!! Staff was very friendly and helpful! they suggested a lot of sight seeings that we should see and always insisted us to sit down with them and chat! was invited to spend new years with the staff and their friends and they shared their holiday Japanese styled meal with us! Every time we arrived at the guesthouse to retire for the night, staff always asked what we had done for the day and we were able to share our experiences. One of the staff spoke very good English and was their to help the rest of the staff out. A friend and I stayed in a private room consisting of 2 bunk beds (one for each of us). Although the room was small, it was clean and served our purpose to rest and retire for each night. The Guesthouse was nicely located near walking distance (5 min) to a 206 bus stop, which got you to Kyoto station (within 20 minutes) which could than take you anywhere. There is a Family Mart within a 2 minute walk of the Guesthouse, in which you could purchase any last minute snacks or forgotten necessities left behind at home for your trip. There are many Shrines within walking distance of the Guesthouse as well, including one in which a Japanese traditional wedding took place (very cool!). Also nearby are several very good restaurants (within 5 minute walk) that you can grab breakfast, lunch, or supper at (consisting of Noodles, Curry, Rice, etc.). I do recommend experiencing The Earthship if you have a chance!!
