Description

Susan has described his/her home in English.

What you will love about this home

A quiet, peaceful little place, this is an old Japanese house with aspects of a traditional Japanese lifestyle. It is cozy, with comfy futons and a small deep Japanese bathtub--nice for a good soak! There is a small private garden with table and seating. There is no central heating or air, but there is one air conditioning/heating unit and a good gas heater. It is quirky and interesting, rather than modern and polished, with a few cosmetic flaws related to ageing buildings (so please choose accordingly).

What you will love in the neighborhood

Quiet, traditional, Japanese neighbourhood in central area of Kyoto city. Pleasant for walking. Find our specific location by searching Kyoto Yasui Kindergarten on a map application. A 15 minute walk from train or subway. Nearby shopping and cafes--Tentation d'Ange cafe, a 2 or 3 minute walk from the house, is not to be missed! Not far from beautiful Zen temple complex Myoshin-ji. Kyoto is easy to get around via bicycle, which are provided, but guests are responsible for their own safety, as well as retrieval or replacement of lost bicycles.

Additional information

This house is part of a guest house program which supports animal welfare in Japan. Our volunteer team managing the houses also assists in the local schools. We make the houses available here on Guest to Guest during times when there are fewer outside bookings. We are more likely to be able to accept Guest to Guest reservations closer to the dates in question. It is important to arrive before 9pm, as the neighborhood is very quiet, and rolling suitcases are a disturbance. It is very important to live quietly in the house and neighborhood, in order to keep things peaceful. We ask that guests leave the house tidy, and also pay a 2,500 yen cleaning/laundry fee. There is no smoking allowed anywhere in the house or garden. We only prepare the number of beds in relation to the number of scheduled guests in a group, and we cannot accept last minute additions.
