This place was a big disappointment. It was so expensive and not well kept. There is water damage and big patches of mold on many of the walls. Our pillows smelled like mildew. I travel a lot and am down for an adventure. This place was not an adventure, but a disappointment. From some of the other reviews o expected rustic and cozy with some cobwebs. But the place is not that conveniently located, and it was so cold - even with the gas heaters - that my boyfriend got sick. Yuka was helpful in getting us a cab and helping to get wifi even though it wasn't guaranteed in the listing.

Overall our time at The 150 year old house was enjoyable. The location was good, just outside of the main city centre only a few stations on the subway or (PHONE NUMBER HIDDEN) yen in a taxi depending on the time of day. Unfortunately it's very difficult to direct a taxi, even with (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps and we had to be dropped off near misasagi station and walk back up the hill. There is a fantastic walk that joins the temples just behind the house that I highly recommend to anyone who likes stepping off the beaten track and having some time in nature. One of the major down sides was that the condition of the house isn't great, I understand it's an old house however there is considerable amount mould in the kitchen and front of the house which for one of our guests was an issue. As a result two guests had to find last minute accommodation. The house comes up in the search for 3+ rooms, however all beds for 5 guests were mattresses on the floor next to each other with a sliding door which divided them. This sleeping style wasn't appropriate for two couples and a single travelling together. There was a third bedroom upstairs which wasn't made available to us. The beds on the floor were however comfortable. As I said overall the experience was good, there are a few things that need attention in the house but Yuka and a lovely older gentlemen were very hospitable and friendly.

Introduction about the house is quite misleading. It is not in good location and very inconvenient for a traveler. Also the safety is another concern for a traveller as a consideration. However this house is a good experience of traditional Japanese life.

Very good when you stay for more than one day (we stayed for 3 days) - the more you stay, more you like the place. The subway station is not round the corner, but we liked walking, eating in small restaurants on our way, then spending nice evening in (almost) our own house.

Old and traditional house but needs refurbishment and thorough cleaning. As the house is located besides woods and all doors and windows are loose, you may expect spiders (big and small), hornets, cockroach,lizard.... (these were the ones we could see in the house). Dont forget that you are going to sleep on the floor. Location is good, about 8 minute walk to metro station. All in all, it is a good experience to stay in a traditional Japanese house, would be better if cleaned and maintained properly.

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.
