Overview

Kyoto House Rental Photos and Description

Come and visit Kyoto's mountainous area and stay at a traditional thatched-house

This is for booking of an entire house (Not booking ofabedroom).We can only accept one group of guests at a time.

***The SPACE***

The place we live is called Keihoku. It's only 1 hour north away from center Kyoto, and you can enjoy stunningly majestic mountain and river scenery, fresh air, and meet heart-warming people. We can also offer some unique nature tours for you.

***Guest Access***

We have 4 bed rooms,1 toilet,shower room and convenient kitchen as your house(refrigerator,microwave,toaster,gas stove,any kind of dishes,glasses).

As amenity, we prepare hand/bath towels,Yukata,shampoo,body soap,hair dryer,toothbrush,razor,laundry machine.

For your access, you can use living room, shower/wash room, toilet. As for the linen, clean sheets, pillow cases, blankets and bath/hand towels are provided. Every machines are free. You can cook at the kitchen.

My wife Yukako and I can give an optional experience service such as family casual cooking, trekking, or yoga training (at attic space). As we have prepared 10 sets of YOGA mats. It's possible to enjoy YOGA practice anytime you want. You can ride horse riding machine (called Joba) in our house. Let's enjoy exercise!

To get around this area, you can also rent 2 bicycles for free - a supermarket and bus terminal is around 30mins away by bike.

And I grow various kind of organic seasonal vegetables in my own farm(vegetables are no charge!),you can take them by your hand, and you can cook them by our help in the kitchen(cooking experience). If you can make dishes by yourself, you can do!

As for internet environment, you have free internet Wi-Fi (tethering) at our place. plus,during your stay,you can use and bring our tablet wherever you go for free so that you are always connected to the signal. It's very useful, especially to check your location in new places.

***The day tour***

I can give tours at an additional fee; English guiding and transportation service is also available. We organize a tour best-suitable for time, weather and season by picking up a few to several sites upon your request from: waterfall trekking, giant cedars(1000years old) trekking, visiting shrine & temple, sake brewery, thatched houses' village as well as night fireflies viewing (from mid-June to mid-July).

One Day Tour (10:00〜16:00) is 6,000 yen per person, but if you are interested in going to Onsen (hot spring) along the sea of Japan (as well as visiting the fresh seafood market), the rate is 8000 yen since the place is 70km away (1.5hour).

Special Seafood Tour:

We go to seaside to get very fresh fish and some seafood, we will bring back them. after that we make very special fresh sashimi and sushi. You will perfectly be satisfied with this taste. the rate need 8000yen per person, plus fish fee and cooking experience charge. but you will fully get satisfaction! Local seafood is super best taste, you cannot do like this experience. I recommend you. Depend on timing, you can have fish as I caught it by my fishing.

Central Kyoto tour:

If you want to go central Kyoto some temples and shrines , I can take you to central Kyoto. The rate is 8000yen per person plus parking fee. You can select some places from your idea.

Original Tour:

You can make your own special tour. We will want to support you!!

***The Neighborhood Overview***

Here in Keihoku, you can put yourself in majestic nature - enjoy trekking riverside, or to waterfall or giant cedars as well as praying in peaceful temples and shrines.

However, since Keihoku is quite a wide area, it is difficult to visit places by just on foot (usually 5-10km away).

***Access***

In order to come to Keihoku area, take a JR bus of Takao/ Keihoku Line from Kyoto Station (terminal no. 3) via Enmachi and Nijo station. Shuzan (Syuzan) terminal is a final stop and it takes around 1 hour 20 mins from Kyoto station. It costs JPY1180, or you can use the Japan Rail Pass(free).

You will get on the bus from a rear door and get off from the front door after you put your fare in the box next to a driver or show JR pass. We can pick you up at Shuzan terminal by car.

A bus timetable from Kyoto station to Shuzan final terminal:

Depart: 14:00 Arrive: 15:20

Depart: 15:30 Arrive: 16:50

Depart: 16:30 Arrive: 17:50

Depart: 17:30 Arrive: 18:50

The bus looks very local, but I am sure you will enjoy the scenery from the window when you come into the mountain lane (after 40mins or so).

About Hideo Uyeda

I was born and grown up in this house, as well as his 6 generations of ancestors.

I speaks English without inconvenience, thanks to my travel experience in the world.

My hobbies are bicycle-ride, playing with dogs, reading books to compare different cultures and history, sea fishing, making pickles and vegetables.

Why Hideo Uyeda chose Kyoto

I want to continue this kind of thatched-house for future. I was born here. So,I want to show this house for foreign people.

What makes this house unique

Here in Keihoku, you can put yourself in majestic nature - enjoy trekking riverside, or to waterfall or giant cedars as well as praying in peaceful temples and shrines.

You can play YOGA with host wife Yukako (instructor).

You can do Japanese family cooking experience with them.

If you want to go sea -side to buy fresh fish,we take you to the special fish market by car(1.5 hours). And we can take you to local hotspring area ,special thached village area and so on.

Our Family Trip to Japan Was Amazing Thanks to Hideo and Yukako

  • 5 of 5

We are a a family of 4, kids are 6 and 2. We did 4 nights Kyoto, 3 nights mountain countryside Keihoku at this property with Hideo and Yukako, and 3 nights on sea shore Taiza on Tango peninsula, then one night in Osaka. I would have done 3 Kyoto, 4 mountain, 4 seaside if I did it again. Not only was out stay at this property amazing, Hideo suggested and booked our stay at the ocean which was also beyond words. Great country, great region, great people -- Hideo and Yukako will show you from their hearts. Thank you again for the wonderful stay.

Owner's Response: We are very happy to hear Kyle san comment. Yukako and I enjoyed walking with 2 kids. 2 kids are very friendly to us easpecially to Yukako. Yukako loves chilren very much. I could see that their daughter always help dinner preparation, their naughty son always did his best by himself. We could smile to see this wonderful family. I recomend Yoko in seaside who is my fishing boat owner's daughter. She sometimes call to me. It was first experience to attend foreign guest for her. But she was very happy to commnicate with Kile san family without perfect English. I thought that most important thing is honest heart. Thank you very much for good memory. Please come back again. Yukao and Hideo Uyeda
