Recent Japan reviews

  • A great introduction to Japan

    "We just returned from Japan so I need to take a moment and write a review. VBRO users have helped me to find so many great places and this is no exception. It is unique and was a wonderful way to start our Japan vacation. In a hidden street, quite secure, quiet, and peaceful. My husband had never slept on a futon, so a great experience for him! I was glad we took a shuttle straight to the address, however, after that, no need for a taxi or shuttle as the train is so close. Loved Arishiyama. Rode bikes, and albiet, a bit crazy at times, very fun. There were not a lot of dinner places open, which was fine, however, if you are looking for one, the place right next to the train station is very good. We ate there twice. Loved the sukiyaki. Also, enjoyed the yakitori place that was recommended. Very fun and sat at the bar. A true adventure. We LOVED the bath. Very relaxing at the end of a long day of walking. The kitchen is very small...which was fine by me...no big cooking when on vacation...but perfect for warming up a snack. Can't really see it for children, but for my 60 year old husband and myself (50) was perfect. Enjoyed it very much. The owner is very kind, yet you feel quite private and serene."

  • 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!"
