Our newly renovated 2 bedroom apartment mixes traditional Japanese touches like tatami mats and sliding shoji doors with modern design. Located just behind Sanjusangendo temple, and a few minutes walk from Shichijo station and the Kyoto National museum.

The space

This is Japanese-style two bedroom apartment was completely remodeled in March of 2016. Both of the bedrooms have traditional Japanese tatami flooring and wall mounted heating/air conditioning units. The larger room holds a western-style double bed, pull out sofa bed, as well as a 23 inch LCD TV with Amazon Prime video and Netflix access via Amazon Fire TV. The smaller bedroom has two single sized Japanese futon bedding sets.

Guest access

Guests will have exclusive access to the entire apartment during their stay.

Interaction with guests

I think it's important to meet all of our guests face-to-face so our preferred method of check in is to have guest come to our business, SHIBA RAKU café. We're located a quick 5 minute walk from the central exit of Kyoto station. Once you arrive I'll provide you with a welcome drink (you're choice) and you can ask me any questions you might have about the house, Kyoto, or Japan in general. Also, in order to comply with Japanese law we request that all guests sign a rental agreement and allow us to take a copy of your passport. Afterwords we'll send you to your rental by taxi.

Overall the stay was decent as it was in a great location. We had a rental car so it was perfect that there was free parking behind the apartment building. It was also nice to meet Jesse in person as he was helpful in answering our questions. There was a portable wifi device in the unit that we could take out, and the Netflix definitely added more entertainment to our stay as well. However, the price didn't seem reflective of the value. The shower room facility was very dated with an unpleasfant odor. I would recommend adding in more hanging space for towels and also a curtain for the windows as it was still very transparent.

The apartment is well connected with buses and a subway line. The apartment is ok. It is cleaned and well organized. We get in touch easily with the host, who is very nice and easy going. And they have kindly transported our luggage from the café they own to the apartment, so that we do not need to carry them. I think there are a few areas to improve. First, there is a strong unpleasant smell (I think it is from the floor mats). Secondly, there is no place to hang towel in the shower room. Also there is no elevator in the condo, and we were not aware of that until we discovered so.

Jesse was very friendly and helpful and put is in one of their other properties because our original had a leak. It was a great personal touch to meet in person at their cafe.

We were warmfully welcomed by Jesse in his café. An iced drink after a hot day was welcomed. Apartment is easy to find and well located to visit Kyoto. It is a traditional japenese apartment, spacious for three, nicely decorated and very clean. We spent four nice days, and we recommand it for Kyoto visit.
