Experience Japanese-style living!
Thank you so much for the wonderful stay at Apple House! It was such a pleasant change from staying in hotels. Plus, we got to experience Japanese-style living, which is impossible (really) in a hotel. Even though the house is located away from the city center, it was easy to use the bikes, buses and trams to get where we wanted very quickly.
For those visiting, the Philosopher's Path and Fushimi Inari Taisha are must-do's! The most exciting part of our stay in Kyoto (at least for my wife) was seeing 6 Geishas in Gion heading to their evening appointments. Wander the alleyways north of Shijo-dori and west of Yasaka Jinja (~17:00) for the best opportunities to see the Geishas. What beautiful clothes!
The highlight of my visit was attending a Japanese pro baseball game at Koshien Stadium. Although it rained off and on, the crowd was very loud and animated throughout the game! Thanks, Hiroko, for securing the tickets to the game!
We both thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Apple House and Hiroko's hospitality and willingness to help in any situation made our stay a great experience! We hope to travel back to Kyoto in the future and would love to again stay at Apple House!
