Yaeya Toichicho.....our hidden gem in Kyoto

  • 4 of 5

Recently on a trip to Kyoto our family of four adults stayed at the newly refurbished Yaeya Toichicho. We wanted to experience a bit of traditional Japan mixed with the modern western lifestyle. This home offered both and we were very pleased with everything. We had planned on dining out so the compact stainless steel kitchen was not a problem. We enjoyed many mornings sipping hot tea and coffee ( provided for us) while overlooking the river and planning out the day's events. There is a trail on the other side that many joggers and bikers enjoy. On attempting to book hotels we found many of the rooms offered were small, confining and expensive, whereas this home offered more space and one and a half baths. We greatly enjoyed the Japanese style of bathing and were sorry to part with it. There is a lovely garden outside the bath/ shower area. I suggest you watch a video on bathing in Japan first. The bedroom on the first floor has two futons on the floor if needed by guests. My adult children loved them and slept better there than at the hotels and resorts we stayed in, following our six nights at Yaeya Toichicho. There are paper sliding doors like in traditional Japanese homes which can be opened to allow more light, or more room. The bath was just behind their room. The upstairs has two western style beds and a lovely room with a sofa and chair overlooking the river. You will be provided with slippers and wearing info. We found that many of the city houses are on top of one another so having the river view and access to public transportation nearby was a bonus. We had our own toilet upstairs and laundry. If you have trouble climbing stairs you might have trouble in this home as the stairs in many Japanese homes are narrow and steep. We had no problem. I would recommend not bringing small rambunctious children into this home because of the delicate walls and the fact that they could be easily damaged. A cab can drop you at the corner near the EFish coffee house, about a 1 - 2 min walk away, or you can walk across the bridge to catch a bus or the subway. The road in front of the house is too narrow for automobiles. This home is just across the river from the Gion District and on the edge of downtown Kyoto so you are close to everything yet in a quiet neighborhood. We felt extremely safe and loved the people of Kyoto. They were friendly and eager to please. We are happy to give this home a 4 + rating. We were very, very comfortable and happy here. The O's
