This is the second time we stay in a Samurai Machiya of Akiko, and again it was great experience. The style is really beautiful and the location is good, with convenience store next door and easy access to bus and train to visit the city. Also, Kyoto station and Aeon Mall are so near. Our group enjoyed the comfort and the convenient of kitchen for eating in. The owner was so great to help. This is a place we all look forward to come back the next time.
Fantastic experience all read. The place was absolutely wonderful, very authentic and homely. Akiko was a great host with fantastic recommendations and very responsive. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. Stay here.
The place is very authentic and inspiring, quiet and clean! Totally recommended!
Excellente Machiya, neuve avec tous les conforts! Nos 2 enfants (6 et 4 ans) ont bien aimé dormir sur le tatami……. La maison se trouve dans un quartier au sud de Kyoto près du temple Toji avec un arrêt de bus et un arrêt métro à 2 minutes ce qui permet facilement de se déplacer partout sans aucune difficulté. Très belle expérience surement à conseiller
This was such an amazing place to stay! From top to bottom, there is no detail spared in making this house have both a traditional machiya feel as well as modern touches. It’s such a special experience to stay here. Akiko was unbelievably helpful in not only making sure our stay went a smoothly as possible at the house, but provided numerous tips over email, her website and even an entire handbook at the house. The handbook was especially helpful in directing us where to go in Kyoto and how to get there specifically from the house. The house itself is only about a 10-15 minute walk to Kyoto Station (convenient for easy access to all bus routes), or just a 1 minute walk to Toji Station. Don’t hesitate to book this Airbnb – you won’t regret it!
We was delighted to stay in this house. Everything was perfect : the house itself, the situation (not far from Kyoto Station, several buses, shopping area…)….
We stayed 3 nights at Kyoto Toji Samurai Machiya. The house was exactly as described. A very stylish ambiance and uncomplicated handling.
The whole family liked it! Kids preferred this!
The whole house looks like a piece of art
In airbnb search, we found this house when we were attracted by Kevin. The landlord is very nice — we always got a quick reply to our questions. We quickly found the house after arriving in Kyot. The whole house looks like a piece of art. The most convenient point is the store close by to easily find everything you can think of as far as household items and kitchen supplies go. As it is a new house, all electrical equipment is new. We only stayed three days in Japan, but these were great three days! I send pictures to my circle of friends as we are particularly fond of. We definitely will come back here the next time!
Beautiful house. Thoroughly enjoyed it. Close to Kyoto Station. Very responsive and attentive hosts. Highly recommended.
