We had a wonderful stay at Koji's place. It is a beautiful and peaceful home that is tucked away into a private and quiet area while still being very close to the train station/subway and local attractions. Koji's place is just down the street from the subway and a very easy 10-15 min walk to Kyoto station. My husband and I walked to Kyoto station each day from Koji's place. Just down the street is a convenience store, so if you happen to forget anything, worry not, you are covered. The space itself is thoughtfully designed and we had all the amenities we could need while traveling. The bed was very comfortable and the shower was very spacious. As someone who is over 5'8" tall I can assure you that this was a very nice perk having a spacious shower in Japan. Communication with Koji was very fast and thorough and he was an amazing and detail oriented host. We could not have asked for more and feel very fortunate that we were able to spend part of our time in Japan at his place. Thank you!
I loved my stay here! Koji and his father Kichi are great hosts and were very accommodating! The space is beautifully modern yet has the charm of traditional Japanese architecture. Would highly recommend!
Kichi, Kojis father was our host for the stay. His hospitality went above and beyond our expectations. He greeted us with a warm welcome and two glasses of his own Special Sake. We chose to do the bike tour during our stay. Unfortunately one of the bikes had a flat tire so Kichi took us by train and foot around the area. He gave us great restaurant recommendations and answered all of our questions. If you are looking for a perfect, cozy and affordable stay Kyoto, this is the one!
