Manager info

Year Purchased: 2005

About: I have lived in Kyoto since 1997, and in this location on the Kamo riverside since the birth of our first son in 2001. Originally from the US, several years after starting my teaching career in Colorado, I relocated to Kyoto. I have been teaching, studying, and enjoying the culture here for many years and would be happy to share some of that insider information with you if you stay in our weekly rental guest cottage.

Why Kamigyo-ku (Kamigyo Ward, Kyoto, Kyoto Prefecture, Japan):
There is nothing in Kyoto comparable to this location on the riverside.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Convenience, peace and quiet, views, and access to everything.
