Chisa was extremely helpful and hospitable. This was our first trip to Japan. The PDF she shared with sample itineraries, travel information and logistics was invaluable. With the extra time not having to coordinate travel and logistics, we were able to visit another temple. Highly recommend. Would definitely visit again.

Please choose Chisa's Place if you are looking for modern home with strong Japanese feel. It's clean, comfortable and convenient to access Kyoto's shrines.

Haru House is near to the Imagedawa bus stop and subway, and also the Kyoto Imperial Palace. The house is huge (2 storey), there are many amenities such as Netflix and coffee machine and is well kept. Instructions from Ryan in the manual are clear and concise, and he is also very responsive to email and requests.

Apartment with everything you need and with the charm of being in a typical Japanese house with all its charm. The neighborhood is very quiet and beautiful. Close by is a metro and bus stop. In the neighborhood you find supermarkets to buy what you need for a few days.

Haru House is a traditional Kyoto house that is updated with modern conveniences. The kitchen is well-equipped for cooking and dining in the spacious area. Air conditioning works well if you happen to be there during the summer. House is close to several bus stops and 10 minutes from the metro station, so getting around is easy once you learn the system. The two bedrooms are adjoined upstairs (and they also have separate entrances), while living areas, toilet and other bathroom facilities are downstairs. Great place for family stay.
