Wonderful old house!
It was an impressive traditional Japanese town house, the owner kept it very well. Bathroom facilities are modern. It is spacious, 2 stories, decorated with various owner’s collections and fresh flowers in every room. We had a wonderful time during our stay.

Amazing and authentic Kyoto experience
This is a very authentic machiya experience: tatami floors, futons rolled out on the floor, a deep soaking wooden tub, a historic building (it used to be a sake brewery). The machiya is in outstanding shape--cleanliness, modern amenities (wifi, AC, Japanese bidet). (Note that part of the authenticity means no western beds, a steep traditional staircase up to the second floor, and the primary seating is also on tatami mats, so for those with mobility disabilities, it might not be the best choice.) It is located in Gion, about 5 minutes to the Shijo Dori shopping street, and steps away from some of Kyoto's best restaurants. A convenience store is also less than 100m away. Maps and brochures about Kyoto are also available and free to take. The staff (who appear to be a mother and daughter team, and who live nearby) speak good English and are extremely friendly and also eager to help. They provide daily cleaning and trash removal, which is nice. They also leave lovely little treats for guests each evening. Breakfast is optional ($$), but we didn't do it this trip, so all I can say is that it is available. We've stayed in Kyoto machiyas four times now, in a different machiya each time, and we've been delighted with all of them. But this one stands out for its exquisite historical beauty and modern conveniences, helpful on-site staff, and excellent location.

What an amazing GEM in Kyoto, you are actually staying in a living museum but with extraordianry home feel services including sake bath, the house owner is the 10th generation of the family who was a sake brewery before, you still can see some of the equipment back in centuries ago! It's a huge duplex,and the owner provides two bicycles for the residence to use, you can feel free cycling around and explore Kyoto! There is a small kitchen for you to do some cooking as well. Surely will give you an Unforgettable experience in Kyoto.
