We are new here, Please allow me to quote two most recent reviews from the other site. Review#1 What a splendid place to stay! We are so thrilled to have the opportunity to stay in this newly renovated historical house. It truly exceeded our expectation. The location is superb, in the heart of Kyoto, near Nijo castle, very convenient and quiet residential area. There is a little park next to the house. My kids had a good run and play there everyday. The house is amazing: the front wooden lattices. the elegant lamp on top front of the house, the round window, the smooth high quality wooden handrail, the sky window in the kitchen. Last but not least, the two top-class Japanese bathtubs with a private Japanese garden attached to it. Oh! My Lord! We just loved it. I had twice a day. Smiling! In the morning, it awaked and refreshed my body and spirit; in the evening, it soothed and relaxed my muscles and nerves. One morning, I saw birds coming and singing on the maple tree. Thank you so much. We had such a wonderful time here. This house is top-notch. Highly recommended for those who are seeking an experience of authentic Japan. Review#2 The best that I stayed in during our Japan trip. Brand new, exquisitely designed, sparkling clean traditional Japanese style home in a central location. Right after the street from a park, 10 mins walk to Nijo-jo, some very good small restaurants all around are very handy after a long day out. There were several thoughtful touches such as high-quality clear umbrellas for guests to use on a rainy day, informational material and maps of things to do while in Kyoto, plenty of high-quality towels. The futon beds were super comfortable. I can wholeheartedly recommend this place.
