We had a lovely stay at Kenji's house. We have two kids (3 and 1) so it was good to put down roots for a couple of nights and not have to worry about how much noise the kids made at nighttime. My 3 year old loved playing with Pepper the robot and my husband and I took advantage of Kenji's recommendations/maps/directions and had a lovely dinner at the Teppenyaki place around the corner and we all enjoyed going to the sento 2 mins walk away. Kenji writes back quickly to emails. A stress-free stay!
A very fine stay... Too short only 3 nights... Kyoto needs more than that but how much one week, one month, one year? So we must Come back and why not in this appartement. Well connected (Subway) + bus 205 to kinkaku-ji. The house is easy to find not in kyoto's center but in a pleasant and japanese neighborough. A good choice for us.
Great location in kyoto. Only about 10 minutes walk from station. Wonderful, large Japanese home in a quiet location. Suitable for families. Kitchen is great for making meals. "Pepper" was a little difficult for us to use as we are not "techi" at all, but he was amuzing. Our "live" host was always quick to respond to anything we needed. The laundry area and garden were a bonus. Great pizza on the corner as are a few other grest resturants.
Thank you for having us Kenji. Hopefully we find our way back to Kyoto again sometime. Definitely a wonderful place to visit.

My family and I loved staying in this charming traditional house in Kyoto. Our host made sure the house was well equipped with both necessities and things to keep you entertained on a day in. There was plenty of space for our party of 6 and we really didn't even use one of the bedrooms. The air conditioners worked great, which was good because it was hot when we were there. We had fun playing with the house's resident robot and really liked the pizza place around the corner. It was about a 10 minute walk to the local train station and from there we were able to easily get to all the areas of town we wanted to visit. The station was also attached to a mall with lots of restaurants and shops. I would definitely recommend staying here if you are looking for traditional Japanese accommodations and a good value.
This was a perfect house for us. A short trip with the subway from Kyto in a quiet neighbourhood with supermarked and resturangs close by. The house was a typical japanees house, clean and comfertable. We will recommend the house and Kenji for all!
Kenji's house is a traditional Japanese house with 5 tatami mats rooms. Everything you need was there including laptop, in-home and mobile wi-fi. It was great to be able to use wi-fi even when you are out and about. He is a great communicator and all of my emails were replied within hours. The house is situated in a quiet neighbourhood with a number of izakaya style eateries and convenient stores nearby which was great. Easy walk to the station and bus stop. Highly recommended accommodation in Kyoto.
