"Absolutely Wonderful House"

This house is nestled on a quiet street lined with old houses.  The first floor consists of an entry way, a full kitchen with a full sized refrigerator, stove, microwave, toaster oven, and utensils/dishes.  There is a room off the kitchen that has a sink and washer/dryer combo.  At one end of this room is a small toilet room and at the other is a bath tub and shower.  There is a living room off the other side of the kitchen with seating around a table and hole in the floor to sit with legs down.  There is a nice sitting room off the living room.  On the second floor is a decent sized bedroom with a small balcony.  There is also a den that serves as a second bedroom.  The tatami mats in the living room and main bedroom are wonderful.

It is about a 30 minute walk from Kyoto Station as well as Kiyomizudera, Nijo Castle, The Imperial Palace, and many other sites.  It is less than 5 minutes from the local subway line as well as private railroads.  It is located close to the shopping on Karasuma and Shijo streets.  A really great location in the centre of the city.

The location is fantastic and the house is wonderful.  We would definitely stay here again.
