Our family of 4 adults was so happy we chose Maki’s apartment to stay in. Komagome was a nice peaceful area to wake up in, and only minutes to the JR Yamamoto Line. 7-11 convenience store just down the block with great variety of food and the best chicken karaage! The apartment fit the 4 of us snuggly, yet still able to have ample privacy between all the rooms when needed. It came well stocked with everything we needed for our stay. Maki is an excellent host, and went above and beyond what we ever expected. He helped us arrange our large luggage’s to be shipped to our next hotel in Kyoto! He responded within hours to all my emails and questions. I asked Maki where I could find a company to deliver our luggage. Conveniently there Global-Yamato delivery company right next to apartments on the street level. Maki very kindly took the initiative to and pick up the needed order forms, filled them out in Japanese for us, spoke to the shipping company of our needs( they did not understand English), and even called the hotel in Kyoto to notify them of our luggage delivery. He dropped off the completed forms to the apartment, so all we had to do when we left was to bring the luggages with the completed forms to the business front next door and pay the yens( about 2000 yens per large luggage). Saved us from having to haul all our large luggage’s to the various trains/stations during commute times at both Tokyo and after arriving in Kyoto.
Great experience in Komagome, loved the gardens too!
