Most gracious, helpful and responsive hosts
Our stay at Koto Inn began in a panic because I left my phone on the train. David and Yoshiko were reassuring and most helpful in calling JR Rail to inquire about my phone and in ultimately making sure I received it before I left Kyoto. Every time I had a question, they answered right away. When doing laundry, I failed to close the door all the way and kept getting an error message. Our hosts immediately sent a friend over to figure out the problem. Even though it was my fault, they were gracious and kind. We loved the neighborhood restaurants they recommended. Loved the beauty of the Inn as well as the modern conveniences of a/c, showers, laundry, etc. Overall, a wonderful, restful, interesting stay.
Koto Inn-A Sanctuary of Kyoto History, Culture, Comfort & Zen
From the moment we stepped through the doorway we felt surrounded by a calm & peaceful harmony that innkeepers David & Yoshiko have so lovingly created. Their generosity of spirit in sharing this masterfully restored Kyoto merchant’s home, Yoshiko’s tranquil Zen garden and beautifully organized & abundant information about anything & everything you may want to do, see, eat or experience in the surrounding area was amazing. Nestled among this quiet Higashiyama neighborhood along a cobblestone pathway that was once the Old Tokaido Road, we truly felt we had stepped back in time. From enjoying study of the inn’s architecture, admiring the pieces of beautiful artwork & period furniture to enjoying a restful night’s sleep on futon (very comfy duvet & pillows too) in the tatami room, our weekend stay was the ultimate Japanese cultural experience. But it was also super to enjoy great water pressure & temp in the shower the next morning, sink into a relaxing bath with auto heated water after a long day’s trek & be pleasantly surprised when the toilet did its polite little auto flush. David & Yoshiko have provided all the comforts, amenities of home and modernity with updates designed to carefully preserve the antiquity and structural integrity of this historic gem. You’ll also find everything you need in the well fitted kitchen should you decide to eat-in during your stay. Ours was too short not to try a couple of their recommended restaurants-CHOICE was totally worth the visit-and we stumbled across a couple of new ones as well among the plethora of nearby dining options.
For these two middle age recently arrived expats, Koto Inn was a most welcome & relaxing reprieve from the hustle-bustle of Tokyo. Perfect place for us to begin our days of meandering along the nearby canals, through the markets, temples, shrines and neighborhoods and end our evenings enjoying the solace, stillness & tranquility it provides. We’re already looking forward many more visits to Koto Inn during our time in Tokyo thanks to our wonderful experience & generous hospitality of David & Yoshiko!
Authentic machiya with modern facilities.
A wonderful renovation in a great location that made our stay in Kyoto special. It was great to have both the traditional bedroom and living space as well as modern kitchen and bathroom facilities. After long days of sightseeing it was lovely to relax back in the calm of the Machiya.
David left many useful suggestions of places to visit and places to eat and was always quick to answer any questions we had. Recommended
Fantastic place and great location
The property is lovely with lots of character. The facilities are very good and everything was well kept, clean and worked well. The location is brilliant for exploring Kyoto. The neighbourhood has some lovely restaurants and is close to some great sights. And the subway and train make it easy to get everywhere else. The hosts were very nice and helpful.
Beautiful machiya, great location
The house is beautiful and in a great, very quiet location. For the most part, the amenties are modern and very good, and the owner and his assistant communicated very well and were very helpful. We had only a couple issues. The futons are quite thin, but using 3 of them solved the problem. Also, keep in mind - this is what I believe is an authentic machiya. This means you will be getting an authentic machiya experience! But it also means you will be getting up and down from the floor quite a bit, since there are no chairs which are not on the floor. Probably not an issue for most people, but I'm 58 and not in great shape, so it became a little wearing.
Overall I highly recommend this property!
wonderful place to stay
We truly enjoyed our stay - the house was just as described and located in a cute, charming and very convenient neighborhood. The owners were great and answered our questions quickly and were incredibly helpful. Thanks!!
