Japanese and Western style accomodation

We endeavour to show you the real Kyoto! That’s why we stay at one of the friendliest hotels you can image. In fact, a real home from home.

Traditional Japanese inns are just that traditional. Rooms are very simple All rooms have futon, Japanese style beds. We have ladies and gents of all ages and abilities and all have found very few problems getting in and out of bed. In fact our guests say they sleep extremely soundly. If you have any qualms please ask about other alternatives

You are provided with a Yukata dressing gown. There are no en-suite facilities, but, all bathrooms have locks. So, unless you choose to, you need not bathe with others! Facilities include showers and a Japanese bath for relaxing before bed. Toilets are Western and Japanese style.

Western style toilets have heated seats and a bidet functions. A washing machine, dryer and hairdryer, are available plus iron and ironing board.

The shared kitchen has everything you could need, cooker, microwave, toaster, fridge etc. We provide a light breakfast each morning of toast, jams, marmalade, honey and cereals.

We are very close to shops, so we tend to bring evening food back to eat at the inn. Tea and coffee are available 24 hours. You do not have a kettle in your room. The entrance to the hotel has a drinks machine for everything from lemonade to beer. So for that true experience our inn is the real deal!

You will be provided with a list of recommended places to eat within five minutes of the hotel.

There are a small number of rooms with no single supplement. In fact we have incentives for sharing! Please ask what our current offer is.

If booked well in advance, we can easily book you into a Western style hotel. This service is now offered on all tours. Hotel prices are given on the day of application may change on final booking. We will inform you of any changes if over £5 per person per night. We endeavour to get you within walking distance of our daily meeting point.

Please note that there will always be an extra charge for any Western hotel rooms as they are drastically more expensive than our hotel. You should expect to be paying in the region of £45 and £80 per night per person on top of the tour price. A little less if sharing.

So, if you would like Western style, with Western bed and en-suite please let me know asap. These rooms once booked must be paid for within 24 hours. Sadly no refunds can be made unless we ourselves are able to obtain a refund.
