Kyoto House Rental Photos and Description
2 bedrooms, living room, diner/kitchen, bathroom, toilet. Maximum 4 people.
Apple House is a comfortable, well furnished property in lovely Shugakuin, Kyoto City. Rather than staying in a hotel or apartment, you can live in a typical Japanese house in a peaceful, yet very convenient neighborhood of Kyoto.
Supermarkets, bakeries and other amenities are all within easy walking distance, as are bus and train services to other parts of Kyoto. We provide two bicycles ( with baskets ) as an alternative to walking or public transport.
Some shrines and temples are very close by, and the excellent number 5 bus service takes you south along past the Silver Pavilion, Kyoto Handicraft Center, Nanzenji, Heian Shrine, Gion and through the congested city center to Kyoto Station.
The owners live close by and speak both English and Japanese. You will be met at a convenient station, driven to Apple House and can settle in with plenty of English information provided.

Guestbook comments from the owner
My stay here has been so short. What a wonderful opportunity to stay in an authentic traditional house and neighborhood. S. and I enjoyed so many adventures here in Japan and I instantly learned the route to the no.5 bus! The area is charming and I enjoyed the house thoroughly. Thank you for all your efforts to make us welcome and comfortable. (E.)
Thank you so much for allowing us to use Apple House. We loved it! The walks all around are really interesting and we have met many of the neighbours and their dogs. I don't know which day was the best; we were lucky enough to go to local festivals, see a Mikoshi wagon, ride the cable car, visit the Silver Pavilion again which is one of my favourites, the gardens are wonderful.
Apple House really is a great location, hop on the number 5 bus and you can just about go everywhere.
We managed to visit Hiroshima, Takayama and Nara; so easy using a JR rail pass and daily bus ticket.
Food around here was great; please try Ffoodelica for great service, salad, pastas, French wine, or the Udon noodle shop just one bus stop away but a really easy walk.
Could Apple House improve? NOT REALLY. It has everything you could possibly want.
Thank you, Hiroko, for picking me up at the station. I hope to come again. (S.)
