highly recommend staying here

Our stay at Jinn's place was wonderful if you're looking for a more traditional place to stay in Kyoto look no further. The garden around the property is beautiful and so peaceful. The only fault is the hill that you have to climb to get to the place as it takes some endurance so climb it every day. I would definitely stay at Jinn's place again I highly recommend staying here :)

most unforgettable

I have to say that this trip to Kyoto is the most unforgettable one I have ever experienced! In a good way absolutely hahaha! The way how you manage the house made a deep impression to me. Once again I thank you for your hospitality, generosity and patience. My family and I are so blessed by that. We stayed at your house almost for a whole day and I did some work beside the window, which made the routine processes enjoyable. I’m so grateful for staying here and I hope that one day we can come back and visit again! Thank you so much and God bless!

only a lot of praise!

We stayed for 4 nights in Jinn’s beautiful house and wished that we could have stayed much longer. The house is very spacious and has a beautiful garden and an amazing bath tub; everything is very clean. Jinn is an outstanding host, everything we needed to make our stay comfortable was provided for. We have no complaints, only a lot of praise!

would stay there again

Jinn‘s house is a wonderful tranquil place! You can experience a traditional Japanese home including a beautiful Zen like garden. We stayed there with our 3 year old daughter who loved running around the house in a Yukata (part of the amenities) and sleeping on a Futon bed down on the floor. The house is large and sleeps ~8 people, so we had plenty of space. The best part is the huge wooden bath that is fully automatic - one click and it fills up automatically at the exact chosen temperature and also keeps it warm at that. Your own private Onsen that has space for 3 people. We can definitely recommend the house for families or larger groups amd would stay there again!

Jin’s house located in a very quite place with a very beautiful outside yard and a beautifully defeated private garden . Very suitable for a family with strong desire to touch the local family life. Jin is very considerate and easy to approach. You can always get a immediate response in case you have any questions. A place I am sure will recommend to my friends in case they have a plan for Kyoto.

good experience staying

Sorry for the late review. It was really a good experience staying in Jinn's house. My parents love the garden and the quiet neighborhood, they even don't want to go outside for sightseeing :) My son loves play the "find a bug" game in the lovely garden. And Jinn, he is a very nice and handsome guy who speaks fluent English, and he is a talent photographer. He took a lot of nice photos for my family which gives us very warm memories. Thank you Jinn for all you did for my family and I look forward to seeing you in Beijing!
