kyoto hotel

kyotostreet1.jpgNow we have friends going to Japan, it is really a travel time of year!
This is where we stayed in Kyoto and we really loved it, not so much for the room, although it was in an original wooden house, a rare thing, not so much for the shared bathroom, although it was prefectly clean, not so much for the owner, he was a true eccentric, but for the location, stait in the center of the geisha quarters of Kyoto, it was lovely…if you stay in the cold months be sure to bring warm things to sleep in as the wooden houses are drafty! And ask for a room out front so you can hear the click of the geta (wood shoes) and signing voices of the maiko when you fall asleep. This is not a fancy place but full of atmosphere.

    Hey! I stayed there! With you! And I liked the room. Sure, cold and drafty and things hanging off the hinges, but these places don’t come around that often anymore.
