  • Our great fortune

    "Last year my wife and I enjoyed a vacation in Kyoto staying at a beautiful ryokan in Higashiyama. We luxuriated in our beautiful surroundings and the innkeepers' pampering. It was a wonderful holiday, a great lifetime experience. This year, when work brought me back to Kansai and I was able to organize a one week holiday for us in my schedule, the thought occurred that instead of staying at a ryokan we would rent a traditional house, and experience daily life in Kyoto as a resident might. First, the time flew by - I can't believe it's over. Second - I'm struggling to find the words - the experience of staying at Hanare house allowed us to find the extraordinary in the ordinary in Japan. After 18 years of visiting and enjoying Japan this was the highlight. I'm sorry, I don't know how to say it better - please allow yourself the experience. It's great."

  • Quiet, clean and wonderful

    "We were travelling in a group of 4, with 2 of us in their 60s and 70s. We wanted to choose a place to stay that is clean and quiet and feelings more "home-like" than normal hotels. Tsumugi Inn was absolutely perfect. It is not a hotel but a temporary home, kept incredibly cosy and neat. The house is in the middle of town and is about 15 minutes on foot from the nearest train stations, tucked away in a quiet, picturesque little lane. Everything in the house is spotlessly clean, all the appliances and amenities are in perfect order. The host, Mr Kuni, is thoughtful and kind, and very experienced receiving overseas guests. This would be a perfect home for a group of friends who enjoy peace and quiet. A few tips I would like to offer: (i) there is no sofa (we sit on big cushions around a low coffee / dining table) and the bathrooms are on a different floor from the bedrooms, so older visitors should take care; (ii) our host keeps the place very neat and tidy with beautiful Japanese adornments around the house, parents should take care with very young children so they do not swallow (or destroy) anything; (iii) if you are unfamiliar with the rubbish recycling system in Japan it is worth asking a few more questions to make sure - we were sometimes quite confused although I think we did manage not to mess things up too badly in the end. Overall, a lovely place to stay - highly recommended!!"
