Traditional home in Kyoto
The room was very clean with equaly clean bathrooma on the 2nd floor of the home. We the host was a very kind and gracious and provided ua with hot tea and cookies in the afternoon and juice in the morning. Even though there were other guests on the same floor, the room was quiet and we were able to sleep peacefully. There are many things to see and do within walking distance.

10/10 Exceptional

This guest house is run by an older couple (younger than me probably.) They are wonderful hosts. Tea in the evening a nd upon arrival. Juice box the morning you leave. Very close to public transportation. But, if you take a taxi ever during your stay tell the driver it is very near where all the tour buses park. From airport take airport shuttle bus to Kyoto station. Then it is easiest to take bus 100 because it is an express. What googke maps doesn't explain is that it is on the opposite side of the bus terminal information desk at bus depot was very helpful. This guesthouse does have rules on late showering and the doors are locked at 10. But for the right people a great experience. They do have cats but not in guesf area. Modern showers and toilet. Beautiful garden created by man's mother.

It was a very nice inn close to Kiyomizu Temple. The owner couple was very nice. My son enjoyed spending time there and liked watching their cats. We can see the garden which cherry blossom was blooming from our window.

A quiet but convenient stay
Yamato is a small guest house with a garden in a quiet street close to a very interesting area.The shared bathrooms were spotless and the beds comfortable.The owners were very nice despite limited English. No cafes or restaurants nearby but a good bus service at the bottom of the hill going to all areas of Kyoto.
