La maison a rendu notre séjour a Kyoto plus serein et la chaleur quelque fois accablante.
Maison très agréable a vivre et bien équipée, en plus d'être bien située.
A recommander!

Cette maison est très bien située et agréable à vivre, parfaite pour une famille de cinq personnes. Notre voyage à Kyoto a été superbe et c'est en partie grâce à cette maison. Merci à Daisuke pour ces explications et ces conseils.

Votre maison est exceptionnellement bien située, dans ce superbe quartier de Gion. Que du positif !!! La maison est très bien équipée. Nous en avons profité pour s’essayer à la cuisine japonaise que nous adorons. Un grand merci également à Daisuke pour son accueil et ses explications. Nous espérons revenir un jour.

I stayed with my two adult children and enjoyed every aspect of this beautiful apartment. We were looking for something with Japanese flavour and were delighted with the tea area, garden and tatami mats with futons upstairs (but I slept on the comfy western bed). We were lucky (not) to visit during a heat wave (35C) so having individual air conditioning in every room was awesome. My son loved the large collection of retro video games. I loved the spa bathroom with a tub that calls you when it’s ready! Location is perfect- we walked to most things (shopping!!) or to the nearby train station. We were sad to leave and if we return we would definitely choose this place again. Easy to recommend!

The house is very clean, the facilities are complete and convenient, and it is very close to Kiyomizu-dera Temple. When you stay, the landlord will tell you how to use the facilities in the house.A taxi from Kyoto Station is about1300 yen

We had a fantastic holiday and we were very impressed by the house which feels very Japanese. Everything is high quality and harmonious, the feeling is comfortable and the neighborhood is very quiet and peaceful. The location was excellent, we could walk to everywhere we wanted: Gion district, Kyomizudera temple, and city center shopping area. The owner who is a gentleman has a great collection of teas from Japan and China that we could enjoy. We felt very blessed we could stay at this place. Thank you! Highly recommended!

We had an amazing stay in Hibiki house for our visit to Kyoto. We especially loved walking through the kennin temple area just down the street every day. On our trip we saw many Torii gates, fed some deer are delicious food, and breathed fresh cool air in the mountains. It was a wonderful experience and we are grateful to have stayed in the best home in Kyoto for our trip.
