Why Toshimitsu Negishi chose Nakagyo Ward
I liked the typical 'eel' shape as called in Kyoto (the front side is not so wide and the house extends in length). I thought it could be so nice to preserve this townhouse and make our guests even for few days to live as Kyoto people lived for centuries with traditions plus a more today comfort in the daily house use.
What makes this Townhome unique
The benefits of this townhouse is keeping the traditional sides and add some modern touch to satisfy our international guests needs, and also the location: in central Kyoto but in a quiet street. At five minutes walking distance there is Nijo Castle, where the Shogun lived, old more than 400 hundreds years. Many other places to visit are at a walking distance, like Rokkakudo Temple called the navel of Kyoto connected with the famous ikebana school Ikenobo, the Imperial Park, or colourfull Nishiki food market. Bus stops are very close as banks, post office, museums, art galleries, every kind of restaurants, cafes, bars...and more and more!

Over all, very good.
Overall a very good experience.staff was very helpful and very attentive. The only drawback was The lack of sufficient towels for our stay. Two towels for two people for a few
Days was not working for me. We had to clean them every day. But over all, a good experience and I’d recommend the apartment to any traveler.

A lovely neighborhood
My sister stayed here a few years ago and I stayed here with my husband this weekend and loved it. A nice quiet "real" neighborhood with great small restaurants around the corner. The owners give you a great binder of info and make the planning adventures easy. The apartment is lovely- a nice oasis
after a day of exploring.
Thank you for taking time for review.
We are glad to hear you two had g great time in Kyoto.

This house has everything you might ever want. A great traditional feel, with advanced tech to meet your vacation needs. It’s spotlessly clean, comfortably located on a quiet street close to several attractions and grocery stores. The hosts are super nice and responded very quickly to any questions or requests we had. We are very thankful we chose this house for our week in Kyoto.
Thank you for taking your time to review our house. We really appreciate your honest and detailed comment. When you came to the house, you looked very tired because of jet lag. But when I saw you to see you off on your check out day, you looed very well and had much energy. We are glad to know that you enjoyed our house and Kyoto. We look forward to seeing you again on your next trip to Kyoto. You are always welcome!
We were are family of 5 adults and 1 toddler and there was enough space for us. The location and cleanliness of the accommodation was 10/10. There is a convenient store and starbucks just around the corner. The walk to the nearest train station is about 5 minutes. The host/staff was very friendly and helpful. Overall we enjoyed our stay very much.
Dear Ms, / Mr,
Thank you very much for your kind an detailed review. we appreciate you comments of our house and service much. We are pleased you enjoyed your selves. we look forward to seeing you again.
We recently spent 5 nights at this wonderful traditional machiya which is close to the subway, restaurants, and grocery. We had five adults and one infant. Futons were set up in the tatami room for the younger adults and baby. Grandparents had the raised futons in the back room. The place was spotless and a real pleasure to stay in. It has been recently renovated to combine traditional elements with modern amenities. We appreciated the kitchen table, chairs, and sofa. The check-in and check-out procedures were efficient. There is not a lot of privacy between rooms which did not bother us. The bath and toilet are in the back and most easily accessible by going through the back bedroom (although it is possible to get to the bath from the kitchen by going through the laundry room, this is not real practical). This home is ideal for a couple or small family. We would stay here again.
