“Absolutely Amazing”

I and my family stayed here for 2 days and had the most amazing time. The property is absolutely stunning from the inside and has all the modern essentials you could need, while still being authentically Japanese in the "machiya" sense. The attention to detail is astonishing - there are speakers, a TV, top of the range toilets (even for the Japanese, and that's saying something!), a range of utensils, an automated bath which you can fill up from the kitchen and even a 2 litre bottle of water in the fridge.

The beds are also extremely comfortable and you can see the underground station when you leave the house, so it's extremely convenient to get around. The house is additionally located just down the river from many bars and restaurants.

The owner of the house is also so friendly and polite, he answered all of our questions and made us feel extremely welcome. The only thing we wish we had was more time in this place - we didn't want to leave!

We had six wonderful nights in this authentic Japanese Machiya, located in one of the best districts in Kyoto.

The house has been restored to perfection and has everything the modern traveller could want, from the Bose sound system to a top of the range washer and dryer. The owners clearly decided to only furnish the house with the best products available and nowhere is this more evident than in the beds. They are extremely comfortable and make for a great sleep.

The house overlooks the Kamo River with sliding ceiling to floor windows giving you a panoramic view of the river and the surrounding hills. The underground station is less than five minutes walk from the house, giving access to virtually any part of this beautiful compact city full of elegant, noble people.

There's many eating options in the area but we recommend the efish café which is less than two minutes walk and a local noodle restaurant which I can't remember the name of but is recommended by the owners of the Machiya and they will confirm. We ate there twice.

We cannot recommend Yaeya Toichicho highly enough. It is quite simply a perfect base for exploring and experiencing Kyoto.
