This home is located in an older quiet residential area 800m from the Fushimi-Inari train station
This home is located in an older quiet residential area 800m from the Fushimi-Inari train station and subway station and 900m to the less frequently run JR Inari station. There is a supermarket 300m away but otherwise only a few dining options. Somewhat difficult for cab drivers to find. Clean facility with daily trash and towel service which was a pleasant surprise. Sufficiently warm with room heaters. The description indicated an entire house but this was likely a mistranslation as we ended up having to share a shower room with 4 other people which was suboptimal for our large group of 7. Hayashi was very generous in making this up to us with a substantial partial refund and he clearly is an accommodating host.

Everything about the house was wonderful. Seven of us stayed for two weeks, and it was an experience unlike any I've ever had before. You really get to have a lifestyle unlike anything I'm used to at home in America, everyone living in such close proximity.
The style was lovely and the neighborhood was great; a 7-11 right nearby for snacks and easy access to an ATM, a bus stop about 4 minutes away on foot, two train stations (Keihan Line and JR Station) about 10 minutes, and Fushimi Inari maybe 15 minutes down the road.
If you just want a regular, hum-drum vacation, maybe look into a hotel, but if you really want a Japanese EXPERIENCE, then Guest House KOTO is perfect.

I was with a group of 6 adults and we fit very comfortably in the home. The host was very responsive to my emails and was present when checking in to explain everything! The house is about a 10 minute walk from two major train stations. Highly recommend!
