THE HOUSE

Sitting on an area of 188 square meters, you are not going to find many places on offer in Japan that give you as much space as this location.

THE LOCATION

An easy-breezy five-minute walk to JR Yamashina, Keihan Yamashina, and Subway Yamashina on the East/West subway line. Thats correct, the entrances to all three stations that will give you access to anywhere you want to go, sitting less than 100 meters apart from each other.

Kyoto station in 5 minutes

Minutes to Kiyomizudera, Gion, all of Kyoto, and super-fast and easy access to the bullet trains.

Osaka in 30 minutes

No need to battle huge crowds for a seat from Kyoto, the express trains from Yamashina station will take you all the way through to Osaka and beyond!

Everywhere else you want to go with minimal hassle

Yamashina station gives you easy access to trains headed up to Shiga (Lake Biwa and the mountains), or all the way down to Kobe. And being just one stop from Kyoto, you can be on your way in minutes to anywhere you can imagine in Japanperfect convenience!

THE ROOMS

There are 5 rooms available for use by you and your party. This house is best suited for groups of up to 6 adults, but can accommodate as many as 10.

Room 4

This room has a double-sized bed with shelf space.

Room 5 (Tatami room)

While all the other rooms are on the 2nd floor, there is a traditional tatami room on the 1st floor of the house. If you are traveling with a party of more than 8 (or you simply dont wish to climb the stairs to go to bed every night) we can provide you with a double futon that we can setup for you in the tatami room. Please confirm with us your sleeping accommodation preferences, immediately after you have made a booking.

THE LAST WORD

We have lived in Japan for over 15 years, and we love the Kansai area and want you to be able to enjoy your stay here, just like a local. We searched for months to find two large houses in convenient locations with fast and easy access to Kyoto and beyond. We are proud to say that we have found two unbeatable spots, and they are truly remarkable in every way. You are going to love your time spent living in the heart of beautiful Kyoto!

See you soon!

Great house with 5 real rooms and all the needed equipment. 5mn to the train station which is itself 5mn to Kyoto station.

All that is really convenient.

Quiet place, some local restauration possibilities.

A really nice house to discover the superb city of Kyoto for a family or big group.

Great house for big groups. Lots of amenities and a 10 minute walk to the train station and tons of food. Bob and Lily were highly responsive to questions before and during our stay, and sent excellent directions to get to their house. We'd stay there again.

Bob & Lilly were very trustworthy. We let ourselves in the house. House was well presented, clean and within few minutes walk from the train station, also on the JR line. Home to home comforts. All instructions left were clear,

We were a group of 7 adults, four bedrooms were spacious and had clean fresh linen and there was also a tatami room downstairs.

Overall a comfortable clean house. We would definitely stay here again.

The house was perfect for our family of 6 adults and 1 child. Lots of room to spread out. The location in Yamashina was great, super close to the train station with many eateries and supermarkets close by. We even found a great pizza place one night!

Bob and Lily provided spot on directions that made it impossible to get lost trying to find the house. The 2 toilets were very appreciated worth that many people as was the soaking tub after long days of walking and sightseeing.

Highly recommended, would definitely stay again if we are ever lucky enough to visit Kyoto again!

  • 5 of 5

stayed here for 3 weeks. Lily and Bob gave very detailed directions, hence even though we arrive after dark, we can still find the place very easily by following instructions. location wise, it is great, just a 5min train ride away from Kyoto station, in a quiet neighbourhood.

the house is quite big with living room, kitchen, washing area, toilet and shower in the ground floor and sleeping area on upper floor. the house is clean and well equipped with all the necessary consumables such as toiletries, washing equipment , cooking utensils and trash bag. Wifi is fast and reliable too. The owner even provide two portable wifi for us to bring around when travelling in kyoto and surrounding region.

Finally, Bob and Lily were very quick in responding to query. while they couldn't be around when we check-in, they were very responsive to check that we have arrive safely and also everything is in place.

highly recommended if you are visiting Kyoto.

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful, spacious, private retreat with easy access to central Kyoto. Train/subway/bus station is an 8-minute walk from the house, and one stop east of Kyoto station on the JR rail.

The four bedrooms upstairs were large with big comfortable beds, and plenty of closet space. Our group of 5 (1 couple, 3 single adults) had plenty of private space, but the common room on the main level (with kitchen and dining) was large enough for us to gather comfortably. The tatami room (also on the main level) was really neat, but we didn't use it much.

For our August visit, the washing machine and air conditioners (one in each bedroom and the common room) were incredibly efficient and invaluable.

Bob and Lily were highly organized and welcoming, making planning our stay a breeze.

Highly recommended!
