Great Kyoto Accommodation.
"Excellent, spacious and good value accommodation in Kyoto. The highlights are the the attention to detail throughout the house. The kitchen is very well equipped with some lovely traditional dinnerware etc. We used the western bed which was very comfortable but futons are also available in a beautiful traditional room. The furnishings are generally traditional and tasteful and the propery is very private in a terrific location. The owner Acca is delightful and was very generous of her time when we met. I will be recommending this property to my family and friends. Thank you Acca."

"Our family vacations in Kyoto on a bi-annual basis and after our stay this time we all agreed that this will be the machiya of choice when we come back again next time. It is located in the less touristic part of town (west side) but public transportations and taxis are easily accessible, for those who would like to head out to Arashiyama the train station is only 8 mins away by walking. This is a neighborhood for Kyoto residents, and the markets and shops are catered to their needs, which really adds to the charm, we felt privileged to be part of this experience for 5 days.
It is an authentic machiya and do be aware that the bathrooms and WCs are detached from the main house through a charming garden.
The owner Sano-san's responses were quick and helpful, and we look forward to coming back.
One last thing: when communicating to cab drivers the closest street corner is "Om-mae Dori" and "Ayanokoji Dori". Somehow Google maps' "Gozen Dori" does not register with the local drivers."

"This is our first time in Tokyo. We are glad to have chosen Nakano, which is located one stop away from Shinjuku, away from the hustle and bustle. Nakano has a street of amazing eateries and a mall selling local produce. Makoto has been great. He gave us a thorough debrief of Tokyo and Nakano, recommended eateries, and places that my kid can go to in the neighbourhood for Anime and ice-cream.
We came here with the expectation of living a life of the Japanese. Hence the recycling bit, though challenging, was viewed as fun to us. The room was clean and everything worked well. Makoto was very accommodating when we told him that we would like to check out very early in the morning on the eve of our departure.
I highly recommend this place for a good night's sleep in Tokyo."
