Great place just outside of the busy areas of Kyoto, but close enough that nothing is far away. The house itself is a great experience in Japanese culture, and Yuka was very helpful and had many tips for local spots to see. Would definitely stay again.

I took a chance on this listing despite mixed reviews. I knew it was an older home but I was not expecting it to be in such bad repair and so poorly kept. There were several large spiders as well as other bugs and other cleanliness issues. If you book this listing be prepared tha…

We are very sorry that you who rented a historic 150 year old "kominka’ Japanese old country house (which is the only one that exists in Kyoto city)did not fully appreciate the uniqueness of the lodging. However, as you commented, "the home is charming and rustic", exactly as advertised and is often requested with favorable comments as to its authenticity . Unfortunately, you left without any notice, but you mentioned to AirBnB a "hole in the roof" which in reality is a windowed skylight and original to the house before electric light and the “musty odors” which come from the cultivated gardens of mother nature that surround the property and the aromatics of the woods used in its construction. Also, she realized it was a “rustic location” and if she's terrified of a “spider”, this could have easily been attended to if she’d ask. My family takes great pride on how we take care of our gardens, rental apartments and exclusive homes on our property and have done so for several generations and when it comes to our guests, we treat them like family and go to every extent to make sure their visit is comfortable and satisfactory.

I was here on Nov 20-23. The old house is located 4-5 km away from the city center. Easy to reach by car. If you are using public transportation, you will need to walk up the hill for about 10 minutes from the station. The old house is beautiful and very traditional. It has a sma…

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. Fro…

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 by Airbnb) yen in a taxi depending on the time of day. Unfortunately it's very difficult to direct a t…
