Guest access

When you arrive at Kyoto station or Yamashina station (one stop from Kyoto) by Japan railway then please get taxi and let your taxi driver to call us (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN). If so you can come safely here, because it is much easier to find house. Because Japanese residential area does not have street name and house number, it is hard to find the house especially you carry big luggage. We have blue sign as Casa Sakawaki in front of house and your entrance is left side. Once you check in, you can walk to Misasagi subway station. It is 8 min walk from the house. I will send you map and also I leave the neighbor map on the table at the house.

Good location as it is near Misasagi station (about 10 mins' walk away). It was nice of the owner to welcome you and gave a brief on Kyōto since it was the first time I visited Kyōto. The owner also gave information on the Daimonji event which I think is quite nice of him to do so. Overall, a clean and quiet place to stay in.

Yuka's place is absolute delight. Very clean, very traditional and has everything you need. We had a warm welcome and she was very helpful and suggested us some great walks and places. There are lot of things to read in house, quiet helpful. It is very near from Misasagi station and easy to reach center with bus/train or 30 minutes walk. We would definitely love to come back and stay for longer duration next time. Thank you Yuka!

Yuka was a great host. Easy to get in touch with, she made sure our stay was an enjoyable one. The place was a short walk from the station and tucked away in a nice, quiet neighbourhood.

Easy location from Kyoto station and communication was responsive. Unfortunately the apartment was not as clean as we have had in other locations and a little bit disappointing on this front.

Well... I read others feedback and I really don't want to be rude and want to be honest. It is Cherry blossom season I understand, the price was unbelievably high, but the place didn't match with the price.. Not at all! It was very dusty, every time I made the bed I sneezed a lot ,also it smelled bad, I asked the host to clean it, very late response and the next day it was still the same... And the bedding matts are very very dirty, like somebody peed on it. I have some pix if you don't believe it. If you really don't have any better choices, I suggest you to take your own shampoo, conditioner, hair drier, shower gel, beddings etc because they are far far below the normal (URL HIDDEN) is not far from subway Misasagi though, not too difficult to go to Sanjo or other places. 我终于知道什么叫抠门小气,房间灰尘很多尤其打开柜子,很潮湿,床垫很脏,洗发水烂的不行,没有护发素,没有吹风机,床单很透明。距离地铁倒是不算太远,去老城区要换乘一次,还算方便。我不会再光顾,各位好运

I live in the heart of New York City and Kyoto. I am an artist and fashion designer and my creations can be found as yukany. My world is built around creativity and I also enjoy traveling, cooking and meeting interesting people. I have visited many museums in the world and often go to concerts, operas and musicals. I enjoy being a hostess at my father’s small hotel “Casa Sakawaki”, located in a quiet, nice location. We always pursue making people feel comfortable, being informative and hope to see you In Kyoto soon.
