We had an amazing stay at Chris's place. We were looking to experience staying in a traditional Japanese house and this place was just that with some appreciated western amenities too like a western bed and dining table. The area was really nice and central with nearby grocery an…

Dear Janine. We're happy to read you appreciated the unique features of a Japanese house with Soji screens (paper doors) and Tsuchi Kabe (earthen walls). Ours were retrofitted with insulation material for the cold winter and summer heat, and fire retardant to abide by the rules of the lodging license we hold. Thank you again for your visit, we hope to meet you again!

Chie and Chris have done an amazing job remodeling this machiya that is in a magical location. We saw geishas multiple times during our week stay, and it was off the tourist track. The house had every comfort we could ask for and they were there to help with anything we might nee…

Stayed in this beautiful home in the Gion district for 4 days! From the outside it has the look and feel of a traditional Kyoto home and on the inside its a stunning, minimalistic Japanese home with a modern twist. The architectural design of the house has a big WOW factor. We lo…
