Exceptional 10.0
Traditional home in Kyoto
The room was very clean with equaly clean bathrooma on the 2nd floor of the home. We the host was a very kind and gracious and provided ua with hot tea and cookies in the afternoon and juice in the morning. Even though there were other guests on the same floor, the room was quiet and we were able to sleep peacefully. There are many things to see and do within walking distance.

It was a very nice inn close to Kiyomizu Temple. The owner couple was very nice. My son enjoyed spending time there and liked watching their cats. We can see the garden which cherry blossom was blooming from our window.

A quiet but convenient stay
Yamato is a small guest house with a garden in a quiet street close to a very interesting area.The shared bathrooms were spotless and the beds comfortable.The owners were very nice despite limited English. No cafes or restaurants nearby but a good bus service at the bottom of the hill going to all areas of Kyoto.

Nice Stay
The guest house is only 10 mins walk to Kiyomizu Temple. They have 4 rooms and we lived in the Japanese room. The owner of this guest house is an old couple. They only can speak very limit English, but very nice. They have 2 free parking lots.

We really enjoyed the special care shown by the owner and his wife, even though neither of us possessed the best language skills. From the first showing us where to park and all the things about staying at the guest house, to having tea and treats each evening. Location is great. Just a short walk to a bus stop or walking through eastern Kyoto to all its sights. A personal place to stay.
