Memorable place to stay!
This traditional Japanese home was exactly how we envisioned it. It was clean, the floors were heated, an unexpected surprise. Very clean and comfortable. Right in the heart of Gion, so many restaurants and things to see and do. Great for couples or families, highly recommended it!

Authentic Japanese with modern amenities, washrooms. Very clean. Location fantastic. Despite being blocks from Gion geisha district it was really quiet.

6/10 Good

Just ok. Yes the location is great. But the place itself is kind of underwhelming for the price. Nobody checks you in and after a long day of travel it’s a bummer to have to figure everything out yourself without any human interaction. The place is smaller than the pictures look. The set up is just not that comfortable for the price. The open air tub isn’t that useable as it’s in a bedroom and not a bath area. The toilet and shower space is small and the outdoor table is unusable in colder seasons like November. It’s also awkward that one bedroom is outside the rest of house and other bedroom shares wall with toilet & is super small. The washer/dryer worked great!

Nice clean house. Too expensive compared to hotels in area. Great area close to shrines, restaurants, and subways. Not enough privacy shades in 2nd bedroom separated from main living area.

It advertised 2 bedrooms, but the second is the living room that needs tables and chairs to be removed and futon mattresses laid down
