The living is floored with white thermo tiles with a set of Scandinavian furniture (sofa and TV board) and British coffee table on top.

The island kitchen area is fully equipped for cooking, which is next to the dining area with a pine made dining table and chairs and bamboo groove decoration.

The flooring bedroom contains two single beds (plus one extra bedding) and two thick curvy wooden beams can be enjoyed under the house roof.

Our 6 night stay in Shimpei's home was absolutely fantastic. The home is located in a more suburban area of Kyoto, about 15-20mins from Kyoto station, and about 20-30mins by bus from Nishiki markets area. That was part of the appeal, as we felt very much like Kyoto locals, living outside of the typical touristy center of town. Shimpei's home is very well equipped and there are lovely extra touches all throughout. Kitchen, toilet and bathroom/shower were all very modern and very clean. We are a family of 4 (2 adults and 2 kids) and found we had plenty of room. Lots of breakfasts on the sizeable dining table, and evening relaxing on the couch after long days out on the town and on Shimpei's bikes which are provided free of charge. We absolutely loved our ride around Kyoto, and all along the river - thank you for allowing us to have these experiences Shimpei! Overall Shimpei was an excellent host for us, he met us at the home, explained everything, gave lots of useful tips about local attractions and restaurants. We had some challenges with our luggage and Shimpei very kindly offered to take care of it for us and organised Takkyubin pickup of our luggage for us - it was fantastic and very much appreciated. We highly recommend Shimpei's home to anyone, and would gladly stay there again on our next visit to Kyoto!

Thank you Michael for the stay and such a very detail and lively description of the house and how you stayed, which I think are all helpful for my future guests to decide. You are right in that the house is not super conveniently located in some sense but would be a good place to those who wish to stay like a local, perhaps especially those with kids. Bikes are definitely useful here to get around, given the distance to the subway station (1km) but relatively short distance to Golden Pavilion and Kamogawa river (within 10 min by bike). I appreciate your constructive feedback as well! Luggage is always challenging to me as well when I am abroad so I am happy to help this for any guests (and actually there is a service where my guests can drop luggage at Kyoto station so it is delivered to the house before 6pm). I was very glad to hear you seem to fully enjoy the stay in the house and the city. Looking forward to your next visit to the city and the house in the near future! Shimpei

房东人特别热情 有礼貌!家里的东西也很齐全 还帮我们预定日本料理 。房屋很温馨 和照片里看到的一模一样。感觉Shimpei是一个特别会生活的人 茶垫等细节上的用品都有。整个屋子也很干净!房子虽然小了点 但合理利用了空间 让我们在京都感觉到宾至如归。美中不足的是交通不会特别方便 也有可能是我们没有耐心研究京都的公共交通 出行一般都叫出租车 不过家中有专门叫出租车的电话 也挺方便!粉屋咖啡的老板娘人特别好 做东西也好吃!英语说得也不错 就在家旁边。总而言之 值得尝试 。这次京都之行留下了很好的印象 .

Thank you Lavender for the stay (and good to have a chance to meet you all in person). I also appreciate such a detailed lively description of your experience, which is also very helpful for my future guests. Yes, some people say they feel the house is larger than actually is and I agree that the designer's use of space is good and efficient. Using taxi with the automatic cellphone makes sense if you have three or four people (or free bicycle if weather is good). Glad to learn that the house helped giving you a good impression of your Kyoto stay this time. Looking forward to your next visit to the city and the house! Shimpei

What a wonderful respite for us during our 5 day stay in Kyoto. This well appointed, cozy home was perfect for my family (2 adults + 3 kids) and everyone felt at home immediately upon arrival. Shimpei met us when we arrived and took the time to show us around, walk us through house instructions, gave us recommendations based on our kids preferences and was simply so hospitable. Shimpei has an extensive list of recommendations for pretty much anything you want to do ready to read through at the house-he has thought of pretty much everything to make your stay easy. He is the very best host we have ever worked with. There are 4 bikes that guests can use and this was a huge treat. Shimpei even had an infant seat for our youngest kid and helmets for the kids. The home is close to the river that runs thru Kyoto with a huge bike/jog/walk path. It was very easy to access and a major treat for us all. Shimpei's home is equipped with the latest in technology and everything worked well. The beds were really comfortable. The bathroom and soaking tub was great! It was so nice to be able to do laundry and the kitchen is stocked with very cool cookware-a cross between a pot and a wok-made cooking a breeze. Wifi was lightening fast and the neighborhood is residential yet close to everything, cafes, shops, grocery stores and restaurants. Very convenient to anything and everything by bus or subway. We felt as if we lived in Kyoto for a few days which was what we were after. I recommend Shimpei's place highly and hope to visit again in the future.

Thank you Jenny for the stay and such a detail explanation of the house and your experience, which I think will be beneficial to my future guests. Like your kids, most kids seem even more excited than their parents and I always like to see those kids enjoying. And thanks to my past three groups of guests, the house is now equipped with three kid helmets (perhaps sightly different in size with each other?). The house did not have beds for a long time until last October but I realized beds would be much easier when I myself stayed there for several days last year. I live on the other side of the river (Kamo-gawa river) and recently jog sometimes, never found such a suitable place for bike/jog/walk and relaxing in any other cities in Japan. Glad to know that the entire family enjoyed the early summer stay in the city and the house, and I look forward to your next visit in the future! Shimpei

Hello Christ, glad to know that the house and the stay gave you a memorable experience for you! Yes, the island kitchen was one of the charming points when I decided to purchase the property. It was also unforgettable experience to have dinner with you all in the nearby izakaya (居酒屋) and I liked the 四川 red chili pepper powder with the Japanese foods! Looking forward to see you all next time in Chengdu 成都! Shimpei

Shimpei's house is in a lovely part of Kyoto, a bit further from the central area but that is one of the nice features, it's a quiet and friendly neighbourhood. We used the bikes with our 2 year old on the back which was good for riding around locally or along the river path. The area is well serviced by buses (although they can be very crowded) and the train is about 12 minutes' walk from the house, we tended to use this a bit more. Shimpei is a super accommodating host who is always happy to help with any questions. The house has everything needed for a great stay and was spotlessly clean and modern. Would not hesitate to recommend Shimpei's place to other travellers looking for a unique local Kyoto experience.

Thank you Marnie for the stay and the review. It was nice to meet and talk with you all in person both at check in and out. Glad to hear the bike with child seat was useful. I too tend to use either subway or bike as many major buses tend to be crowded (although 1day pass is cheap). The Kamo river is good for both family with kids and those who jog and walk. Looking forward to see you in Melbourne or here in Japan again! Shimpei

Hello, I am working in a foreign professional firm and the apartment and machiya style house are my second houses in Kyoto. I picked these places because I wanted to stay away from busy, hectic work during weekends.

I was a mechanical engineer for eight years after university and earned an MBA in the US before joining the current firm. I like travelling both domestic and overseas and love talking with all different kinds of people from different cultures. I am also a big fan of great food in Kyoto and Kansai areas. One day I'd like to move to Kyoto and this is my first step to be closer to and familiar with the city. I stay once or twice in Kyoto over the weekend but since this place is so nice, I'd like to share this fun with some other people coming from outside of Japan.
