Great place, in a quiet area close to Gion but not in the middle of tourist mayhem. We loved exploring the little streets near the house, found an amazing woodblock artist and also a really great cafe! Very very close to Kiyomizu and about 5-7 minutes walk to two train stations…

Response from Yukiko:
Thank you for your review about your stay with us. TV actually has many cable TV channels but it appears that you didn't know how to set the remote control... William, our local manager, is there to assist you for issues like that, but we are sorry for the inconvenience. I sincerely hope that you had a pleasant stay with us and the TV issue didn't spoil your overall experience! Thank you for your stay!
