Just a tad difficult to find but very close to Main Street, gion district is only 10-15 min walk . Judy (owner/manager) was incredibly helpful and tried to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Loved our stay in general... shard bathrooms and toilet which we were pre advised. Only if they provide pjs like many other Japanese hotels or guesthouses . Overall, enjoyed staying there and will do the same if we visit Kyoto again.

Traditional period home in Kyoto
We have a gorgeous stay & were welcomed very warmly by Judy. She gave us great suggestions on things to do in Kyoto as well as bus & train routes to get there. Location is fantastic, right in the middle of the city & we walked from the Kyoto Station which was an easy 20/25minutes past an beautiful temple. Convenient to Gion & all the riverside bars & restaurants. The room is traditional Japanese style with comfortable futons on tatami mats. It was a great place to stay.
