This is a beautiful Kyoto (Japanese) style house. The hosts have put everything precisely in the hand-out. Extremely accessible by bus. The neighbourhood restaurants are the best and we had all our dinners around the house. Also, Kyoto is a small city; therefore when in doubt easy to take a taxi and return back. The amenities in the house are world class. The stay with our 3 year old was delightful. The neighbourhood is friendly and our daughter was also gifted a nice souvenir by the neighbourhood grandmother.

Had an incredible stay at Aki House. The hosts were wonderful and provided a very comprehensive guide book to make everything easy and seamless. Came with three other friends and we all agree we would definitely consider staying here again when returning to Kyoto. There were also lots more amenities than we've been used to in our travels in Japan. All around had a lovely stay. Highly recommended for English speaking travelers and groups of friends.

Excellent choice for a Kyoto stay: clean, convenient, spacious, with the slight disadvantage of being a bit out of the center of things.
