Chika is one of he loveliest hosts you can hope to have. She gave us recommendations for dinner and even gave us some very nice chocolates and praline. The apartment and bathroom especially are quite small, so families should keep this in mind, but was not a big concern for us. If you are not used to sleeping on futon, note that you are basically sleeping on the floor so it may not be for everyone. Very close to arashiyama and the bamboo forest, less than ten minutes walk away. Do not miss out on tenryuji nearby as well!

10/10 Would stay again! - Awesome location - Awesome hostess. Chikako-san is so nice! - English, no problem. - Lawson combini, 1 minute walk. Seriously, the most convenient Lawson ever. - Close to station in a quiet neighborhood. - Steak dinner at Chikako's family restaurant; do it. Steak was excellent! - Apartment was clean and larger than almost every other lodging we have stayed at, while in Japan. Third trip to Japan.

If you want an unforgettable experience in Kyoto, Chika's place is definitely the one for you. She is such a kind and helpful host! She even went out of her way and dropped us off at Kinkakuji on her day off! Communication was easy and she always responded to our questions before and during our stay. Her place is conveniently located near the train station so getting around was a breeze. Be sure to try dining at her family's restaurant in the ground floor - the food was superb! Just thinking about it, makes me want to eat there again :) Would definitely recommend Chika's place for anyone who wants to enjoy the best hospitality in Japan, the historic beauty of Kyoto, and the idyllic serenity of Arashiyama ❤️

The place itself is nice and clean, everything is as described. Definielty reccomend.
