Jasmine sent lots of information through before our stay and we were welcomed by Daisuke from Japan Experience who went through the house amenities and also gave us a lot of information about things to see and do in Kyoto. The whole experience was very professional and well thought out

A helpful and great host whom replies promptly whenever we have any questions. We had no issues navigating to the machiya. With the newly built station, it is more accessible and convenient.

The first time I tried the B&B, I was satisfied and happy. After spending three days of fun, there are a lot of public transportation around, very convenient. A great stay experience.

Jasmine’s apartment was absolutely incredible!! It is a beautiful apartment with a traditional feel, perfect for a stay in Kyoto. In terms of amenities, the place had everything you could need and more! On top of that Jasmine organised a travel guide to meet with us, show us the apartment and give us tips for managing Kyoto’s millions of temples. She also gifted us a nice face wash which was very thoughtful. We cannot recommend Jasmine and her apartment more!!

La maison Nishi Ume, très agréable dans un quartier très calme, soufre d'être un peu excentrée par rapport au centre ville et m^me un peu par rapport à la gare. Par contre si les transport bus à partir des 4 arrêts du carrefour Shichijo/Omiya étaient actualisés, cela serait pour de nombreuses destinations touristiques un avantage car permettrait d'éviter dans de nombreux cas la gare routière de Kyoto station, quelque peu submergée. Idem actualiser des adresses de restaurants à proximité de la maison. Rajouter un couteau pour éplucher des pommes par exemple (seulement un couteau de type Santoku et des couteaux de table à dents).

We were very happy with the house. It was clean, and only a short cab ride to the station. Saki was excellent! It was so nice to have her welcome us to the house. She explained everything and made us feel at ease with the house and the neighbourhood. Thanks Saki!

Petit malentendu sur le lieu de rendez vous avec notre "Travel Angel" (Daniel). Ceci a pu être vite résolu grace aux directives de Daniel. Terminal de bus, à la gare de Kyoto, facilement trouvé mais, l'arrêt de la maison ne figurait pas dans les documents. Sinon, trés bonne expérience à renouveler.
