Our house/CasaSaca is located just in one of famous spots with cherry blossoms and has nicest view of Biwako Sosui Canal of Meiji heritage. You can go to the central Kyoto within 40minutes by Keihan electric railway. Neighborhood is very quiet. CasaSaca was built by my grandfather 85years ago. It is a traditional Japanese wooden house with 5 Tatami rooms. i was realy born there 70 years ago. It is so historical that some building parts are old. Please accept these facts before you reserve it.

This was my best airbnb stay until now. The host was super friendly. The house was very big and just awesome! Would love to stay there again in the future! :)

Casa Saca is a wonderful, traditional house where you can sense the true spirit of Japan but at the same time it is very comfortable and well equipped. The location is perfect and allows you to escape Kyoto crowds and get some well deserved rest. But the best thing about Casa Saca is - without any doubts - meeting Hirotomo - a perfect, kind and helpful host who showed us his own Kyoto and made us feel at home. Fully recommended.

If you're looking for a traditional house to stay near Kyoto - this is your place to be! We stayed one week here as a family and loved the place. It's easy to go to Kyoto and a very relaxed neighborhood. We highly recommend it and would love to come back one day. Hirotomo is a great host. He took us around Kyoto with his car and provided free food on arrival!

Hirotomo's place was one of the best places we stayed in japan. It is a very traditional house located not far from Kyoto, and has very easy access to the rail station. Hirotomo was a fantastic host - he gave very clear instructions and even provided us with some food for our stay! I would definitely recommend this place if you want to stay somewhere slightly further away from the busy city, in a traditional home.

Hirotomo's CasaSaca is definitely the best airbnb experience I have ever had. My friends and I stayed for two short nights and had the pleasure of having Hirotomo himself as a guide for Kyoto. He showed us some famous places in his compact car and always kept great communication. The house was warm and cozy and beautifully kept, I will miss it and we will hopefully be back. Thank you Hirotomo!
