My wife and I stayed here for 8 nights in September 2011. After leaving the Kyoto station we took a taxi and after a phone call to the B&B for further directions we arrived to be greeted by Raphael. The building both outside and in is a time warp; tatami matting, sliding doors, low (ouch) doorways and futons. The garden is small and serene surrounded on 2 sides by a toilet and bathroom. The surrounding area is fairly peaceful with the odd talking truck in the early hours. The B&B is located about a 10 minute walk from the subway and main shopping area. There are plenty of cafes, restaurants and izakayas close by. For breakfast we went to a boulongerie around the corner. A bit of Paris in Kyoto. The big plus for the B&B is the host Raphael. I thought I was cool but you don't need the air-conditioning on when he's around. He gave us lots of advice, did our washing and was good for a chat now and again. We really loved our stay here. The modern world was left outside.
