Awesome and Highly Recommend
"I had the honor and priviledge of staying at the Gion House during my month and half stay in Kyoto. The location is excellent on a quiet street yet very close the best of Gion. Near the best Japanese restaurants and gazing at the true Geisha. Easy grocery shopping nearby and local vendors. I had easy access to taxis, bus line and trains. The owner/managers are attentive, knowledgeable, helpful, and professional. Truly the best part of my stay in Kyoto for experiencing the traditional Japanese style house--yet with some modern conveniences. For a true experience--The Gion House is outstanding!"

"We went to Japan in Spring 2015 (just in time for the cherry blossoms !) and were looking for a nice, well-located and priceworthy apartment in Tokyo - and this flat was all of this. While a bit tight for the both of us (we let the sofabed constantly on bed position, which made moving around the room a tad complicated, but as we were out during the day and most of the evenings, this was not much of an issue), it was well furnished and provided everything we needed. It was also very conveniently located - Nakano JR station (and Tokyo metro station) was only 5mn by foot, and offered very good connections to both the Tokyo metro and the JR lines (and being able to take the JR Chuo Line Rapid Express instead of the local train makes it really faster, so that's a major plus for the accessibility). The area is also full with little shops, restaurants and convenient stores, which makes it really easy to buy food and other necessities; the Nakano Broadway also delighted my geek of a boyfriend, so that can't be recommended enough for Otaku fans. And - last but not least - Makoto was very helpful, both before and during our stay, and gave us many explanations and maps about Tokyo and surroundings, so that we could fully enjoy our trip. Recommended !"
