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!
If you're a couple going to Kyoto, this may be the best Airbnb in town
Kichi and Koji's Airbnb was perfect for our 3-night stay in Kyoto. It was centrally located by the river and metro station, which made it very easy to find from Kyoto Station and to embark from on each adventure
Kichi (Koji's father) welcomed us warmly, had two sparkling sake drinks waiting for us when we arrived, gave helpful tips to optimize our itinerary, and generously took us on a 7am bike tour to the Inari Temple! He was exceptionally kind and the bikes were awesome to use for a full-day of sightseeing across Kyoto
The bed was comfortable, the shower was huge, and they even had Netflix on the TV – great for a little afternoon break before heading up to Pontocho for the night
This was my favorite Airbnb in all of Japan – highly recommend! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
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!
