Mayumi and Andrea sat down with us for over 30 minutes and provided us with a lot of information about their apartment, where to eat and where to visit in Kyoto. It was a very kind and warm welcome to Kyoto. Some of the tips were so good including the vegetarian restaurant. This is a must if you like vegetarian food. We also love the curry restaurant. Their apartment is in the perfect location and so convenient. We enjoyed the traditional Japanese style apartment sleeping on tatami mats and being right next to the beautiful stream and close to the Gion district. They also provided some bicycles so my daughter and I went on a bike ride every morning next to the duck river. Hope to visit Kyoto again one day. It is a wonderful city. Thanks Mayumi and Andrea!

Andrea and Mayumi's place is exactly what we hoped for; traditional interiors and a peaceful environment after visiting busy Tokyo. It is located a walk from the geisha district, close enough to go see but far away enough to escape the other tourists (ideal for us). Mayumi was amazingly helpful about the check in process and provided us with some bread and juice in the kitchen which we ate on the balcony for breakfast. Their book of reccomendations was super helpful on knowing where to go and what to do. Best place we have stayed at so far!

Andrea & Mayumi User ProfileAndrea & Mayumi is a superhost.

We are Andrea and Mayumi! Australia and love for new experiences brought us together !
For six years we have traveled the world together sleeping in the most absurd and disparate place. In Italy we have managed tourist apartments for years and now that we moved to Kyoto , the birthplace of Mayumi , we would like to put at your disposal our experience to introduce you this fantastic city in the way it deserves.
Andrea: "Personally, I feel even more tourists resident. In my spare time , when I'm not busy studying the language , I love to lose myself and find myself on the banks of the Kamogawa river . " I think it has something magical that always manages to draw me in spite of everything . If you like sports or readers like myself, do not forget your sneakers or your readings , the banks of the Kamogawa are perfect for these practices ! Welcome revelers are also musicians and aspiring photographers . In short, Kamogawa is for everyone! "
In addition to welcome you upon your arrival , We will indicate places to see , shops or restaurants to eat and anything else you need !
We speak English Italian and Japanese . With the Spaniard we will arrange ! ;)
See you there!

Siamo Andrea e Mayumi! L’Australia e l’amore per le nuove esperienze ci ha fatti incontrare!
Per sei anni abbiamo girato il mondo assieme dormendo nei posti più assurdi e disparati. In Italia abbiamo gestito appartamenti turistici per anni ed ora che ci siamo trasferiti a Kyoto, città natale di Mayumi, vorremmo mettere al Vostro servizio la nostra esperienza per introdurVi questa fantastica città nella maniera in cui merita.
Andrea: “Personalmente mi sento ancora più turista che residente. Nel mio tempo libero, quando non sono impegnato a studiare la lingua, adoro perdermi e ritrovare me stesso lungo le sponde del fiume Kamogawa”. Penso che abbia un qualcosa di magico che riesce sempre ad attrarmi nonostante tutto. Se siete sportivi o lettori come il sottoscritto, non dimenticate le vostre scarpe da ginnastica o le vostre letture, le sponde del Kamogawa sono perfette per queste pratiche! Benvenuti siano anche suonatori festaioli e aspiranti fotografi. Insomma, Kamogawa è per tutti!”
Oltre ad accoglierVi al Vostro arrivo, Vi indicheremo posti da vedere, negozi o ristoranti in cui mangiare e qualsiasi altra cosa abbiate bisogno!
Parliamo Italiano Inglese e Giapponese. Con lo spagnolo ci si arrangia! ;)
Vi aspettiamo!
