About the property

House in Kyoto, 3 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, sleeps 8

This is for booking of an entire house (Not booking of a bedroom).

We can only accept one group of guests at a time.

Escape from crowd and noise!!

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

---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.

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

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

---Guest Access---

We have four rooms that can be used as bedrooms, 2 toilets, a shower room , a bathroom(Japanese style)and a convenient kitchen, just like your house (refrigerator, microwave, toaster, gas stove, any kind of dishes, glasses).

- TATAMI ROOM: Can sleep up to 3 guests (Futon)

- TATAMI ROOM 2: Can sleep up to 2 guests (Futon)

- BEDROOM: Can sleep up to 1 guest (Semi Double Bed x1) + 1 additional guest (Futon)

- 2ND FLOOR FLOORING ROOM: Can sleep up to 7 guests (Futon)

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

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

I and my wife can give an optional experience service such as family casual cooking, trekking, and yoga training (at attic space). We have 10 sets of YOGA mats. You can enjoy practicing YOGA anytime you want. You can ride horse riding machine (called Joba) in our house. Let's enjoy exercise!

I grow various kind of organic seasonal vegetables in my own farm. You can make dishes using those vegetables by yourself or we can also help you cook in our kitchen!

As for internet, we provide free internet (Wi-Fi). Plus, during your stay, you can use our router and bring it wherever you go for free so that you are always connected to the internet. It's very useful, especially to check your location in new places.

---The Day Tour---

6,000 yen per person.

You can choose your itinerary from the following options:

We go to seaside to get very fresh fish and some seafood. W bring them back to our house and make very special fresh sashimi and sushi. The rate is 8,000 yen per person, plus fish fee and cooking experience charge. Local seafood is very, very tasteful and you cannot have the same experience elsewhere. Highly recommended!

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

Original Tour:

We can help you plan your own special tour!

--Getting around--

Since Keihoku is quite a large area, it is difficult to visit places just on foot (most destinations are about 5-10km away).

To get around this area, you can also rent 2 bikes for free - the supermarket and bus terminal are around only 30mins away by bike.

---Other things we offer---

We want to make your stay comfortable and entertaining, so we offer some added extras at our place for you to enjoy, including:

---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 JPY1,180, or you can use the Japan Rail Pass.

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).

House Rules: No shoes no smoking in the house

Amazing amazing time at Hideo-san and Yuka-san's place!

The house is neat and clean with all basic necessities provided. A very beautiful house to experience staying in a traditional thatched tatami house. Hideo and Yuka were not only our host but were like our very good friends in Kyoto along with their adorable Azuki and Gon! We miss you guys already! Till next time!

I strongly recommend booking their place for an out of the ordinary touristy itinerary in Kyoto. It was a beautiful countryside experience, we will never forget!

Thank you so much! And yes, they conduct awesome tours as well! I strongly and highly recommend it. For our stay, we went to the seafood market-chopstick factory, and thatched village.

It was an expectation exceeding experience. Hideo is a joyful person who are open and full of jokes. Despite our arriving was later than 9pm, he welcomed us with warmth and explained carefully how to use the house, which was necessary because the house is huge. It is also fully equipped with everything we can possibly be in need for. The location is away from the crowd and city hassles. We were genuinely pleased during our stay. I recommend this house without slightest hesitation.

We had a enjoyable stay at Hideo San's house. The house is spacious and clean. The kitchen is well equipped. Yukako San's brought us to the nearest supermarket to buy ingredients to prepare our dinner. The surroundings is very nice. There's a little hill behind the house. We took a walk up there and the air was very fresh. They also have plantation of some vegetables where we picked some onions, garlic a, lettuce and carrots. My children enjoyed and love the place very much. They had great time playing with the dogs. We will go back again if going Kyoto for holidays in the future.

  • 5 of 5

Our stay with Hideo & Yukako-san was incredible! The house was cozy and dreamy. The four of us even spent an entire day at home, cooking and napping. The fresh mountain air was exactly what we city dwellers needed. Hideo and Yukako-san prepared delicious dinner for us two nights in a row, and spent time talking and laughing together with us. We also took a full day tour to the giant cedar forest, and surrounding nature spots. Hideo-san was very patient, supportive and extremely fun to be around. Yukako-san was super energetic and kind towards us. Their two dogs were such sweethearts too. We really appreciate the opportunity to spend 4D3N with this family. We hope to see you both again soon :)
