(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.

We had the pleasure of staying at Hibiki house for about 6 weeks. It was the perfect place for us (2 adults and 2 kids ages 6 and 10). First of all, by Japanese standards, it is huge with 2 bedrooms, a living room and a good-sized, well-stocked kitchen (we did a lot of cooking since we were there for so long). Second, the location is ideal for exploring Kyoto. It is in the heart of Gion, close to trains and buses and plenty of nearby amenities like grocery stores, post office, restaurants and sites). Finally, Alex is a gracious and considerate host who did everything to make our stay comfortable. He is easy to get in touch with as is the management company, "Japan Experience". We plan to visit Kyoto again and we will definitely be returning to Hibiki house.
