  • Description

    Description

    We are a Chinese and Japanese couple who running two small guesthouses located in the center of Kyoto city, close to Nijo castle(the world heritage). Our main building is a mixed dorm-type guesthouse, we are living inside with our cute puppy. Helpers living here too. Our annex is a 100-Year-Old 'Machiya' townhouse.
    Kyoto has only two subway lines and one JR line, but the bus system is incredibly extensive. We are located in a peaceful neighborhood in central Kyoto. Most of the top sightseeing spots are within an easy journey by bus. The 7-Eleven and Lawson convenience store is just 2 min walk away. And post office, supermarkets, drugstore, hospitals, traditional bathhouse are within walking distance (5-15min). You can easily find a lot of good local restaurants around our guesthouse. So, our location is good for living, traveling and experience the local lifestyle.
    We look forward to having you join us!

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    ◆Kyoto is a culturally rich city. Generally, beautiful sights and workshops close at 6 pm. Most of the hostels ask helpers work for a few hours in the daytime for cleaning(11:00-15:00). But we'd like to ask for more hours a day, in order to offer more holidays to explore the city from the morning. Bath on our working hours, half of your stay you are free to go out.
    ◆We are glad to help you in languages and learning the local culture, also recommend places and experience you can have in Kyoto.
    ◆We have a very cute pomeranian dog!
