“Hidden jewel in the heart of old Kyoto”
Reviewed November 7, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

Buried in the back streets of Gion is a true treasure of delight for any visitor who wishes to have 'the' real experience of an authentic Japanese home with all the modern conveniences.
My husband and I along with our son and his wife were pleasantly surprised at what this residence offered. The house was spotlessly clean with two westernized beds upstairs along with a sink and toilet. The downstairs had a complete kitchen with a courtyard and a bathroom with shower and bath. There was also a room on the main floor for sleeping with a sink and toilet. All amenities like soaps, and body lotions were available. A bonus was the washing machine!! We were close to all shops, subways and within walking distance to some of the very best restaurants in Japan. We enjoyed our stay here immensely and it was one of our 'highlights' on our journey through Japan.

Thank you for your review. We hope your family was able to enjoy Seiji-an and your stay in Kyoto. We are glad to hear you find the accommodation and amenities to your liking. We know how great having a washing machine readily available can be when on an extended vacation. A vacation in Kyoto can be completely different depending on the season, so we hope we might see you again in the future for another visit!
