Wonderful, spacious rental house in a great part of Kyoto. Easy walking distance to several attractions, quick bus access all over the city, and convenient for shopping. The space itself is very comfortable for a family with a well stocked kitchen, plenty of natural light, and quirky nooks for reading or drinking tea. The host was very welcoming and helpful. This was the perfect base for our long summer vacation!

The location was just off Matsuyama doori leading to Kiyozumi temple and just a stone throws away from Rokudo Chinnoji, a very famous temple worth visiting. Great supermarket nearby and quaint local shops to satisfy your taste buds as well as local artisan items worthy of taking home. Alex is a great host and takes care of his property and it was in immaculate condition. I will definitely come back!

(EN) The location of Hibiki House is great, just 15 minutes by walk from Kiyomizu Temple, Ninnenhan Sansankan and Kyoto shopping district. The interior decoration is very Japanese and clean. Great for a family trip. The host and team members are very nice, and the communication are clear. Thanks for their service

(FR) L'emplacement de la maison Hibiki est idéal, à seulement 15 minutes à pied du temple Kiyomizu, Ninnenhan Sansankan et du quartier commerçant le plus fréquenté de Kyoto. L'intérieur est très japonais et propre. Idéal pour un voyage en famille. L'hôte et les membres de l'équipe sont très sympatiques, et la communication est claire et fluide. Merci pour leur service

I would definitely recommend this machiya for those who are looking for an authentic living experience among the locals in historical Gion. We were very delighted to be able to live like a local for a few days: experiencing how kyotoites organise their living space, get their daily supplies in the open market, prepare their New Year festivities, etc. On top of these, we were not deprived of modern, even upscale facilities inside this traditional townhouse: well heated floors, modern kitchen essentials, sauna, dining area, tea area, japanese garden, etc.; last but not least, 24 hrs convenients stores, restaurants, sightseeing spots, transportations are at close distance. P.S. Special thanks to Alex and Daisuke, your helpful and friendly assistances have made our séjour a wonderful memory.
