IchiEnSou is a charming little guesthouse located right by an impressive looking Japanese theatre. It is easy to find and a stone's throw away from Gion night life - close enough to be with all the action within a few minutes but tucked away in the quiet part. I found IchiEnSou to very clean, gorgeously decorated and accommodating. Yashi and his wife are polite and very helpful. We had great conversations and insight into Japanese culture. I also managed to find black sesame ice cream in Kyoto - turned out to be a bit of a rarity - who would've thought? Kyoto is simply magical and I could not have picked a better base than IchiEnSou to explore it. The only thing, if a bad thing could be said, is that the guesthouse does not offer private rooms. I did loads of research and found this guesthouse to be given a rating of 98% - didn't disappoint. I highly recommend this guesthouse.
