One of the biggest event in kyoto is [Gozan no Okuribi] , more commonly known as[ Daimonji] is a festival in Kyoto, Japan. It is the culmination of the O-Bon festival on August 16, in which five giant bonfires are lit on mountains surrounding the city.

Very cozy house, truly a home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We were vacationing with my elderly mother-in-law and anticipated to spend much time at home because of her limitation (need wheelchair for long distance). It turned out that our choice on Kenta’s house was perfect. The house is really comfortable so we enjoy staying at home so much, cooking, chatting or just relaxing. And if we or our young nephews got bored, they can walk around in a comfortable neighborhood or walk 100m to the nearest station to get to the city center or Kyoto's tourist attractions by subway.

We were traveling as a family of 7 people and stayed at Kenta’s house for 8 nights. And time really flies because we really enjoy ourselves. Mini markets are just a stone's throw away, or if you want to go to a bigger supermarket we can ride in the provided bikes for a distance of less than 1 km.

Kenta Nakano san is a very nice and attentive host. It's really beautiful memories we bring home to Jakarta, Indonesia. Hopefully next time we can go with our close friends to enjoy a cozy holiday atmosphere at Kenta's house in the beautiful city of Kyoto.

Best rental in Kyoto! We will definitely return.

  • 5 of 5

The vacation house was more than we expected. The size, the amenities, the location and Kenta was a wonderful host. We didn’t want to leave and already know that this is the rental we will use again if we are fortunate enough to return to Kyoto. We miss it already!

Perfect family home base for Kyoto area adventures

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 days at this property with our three children, ages 7, 10 and 14. The location was great- a two minute walk to the Matsugasaki metro station and a well-stocked Lawson convenience store. The house overlooks a sports field and playground, which was great for the kids. The neighborhood is residential, but there are a few restaurants within walking distance. The house was roomy, clean and well maintained. It had everything we needed and more! Kenta was an excellent host and made sure we had everything we needed. He also helped us figure out some fun things to do around Kyoto. Highly recommended, especially for a family!

Our family of four adults had a wonderful stay at Kenta's residence. Kenta was a great host. We arrived close to 11PM and he was waiting, making sure that the house was warm for us. We loved the house and its neighborhood. The subway station is a few steps away and less than 10 minutes ride to the Kyoto station. The house is very spacious, cozy, has the Japanese traditional feels, with some of the modern touches. It is a nice place to come back to after a long day of sight seeing. We stayed here for 9 days and loved it. The bikes at the house were another nice touch as we used them to ride around to other neighborhoods and grocery shopping. Thank you Kenta for sharing your house with our family.

Nice, spacious house in a great location, perfect for visiting Kyoto, with a lovely host

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Kenta's house for 5 nights with our two young daughters. The house is very spacious and nice, has a lovely Japanese tatami corner and all the needed appliances. We've been welcomed by Kenta, who speaks a good English, was extremely helpful and nice, he even prepared some drinks in the fridge for us and toys for our girls. Kenta even came help us get to the metro on our last day and left us with some lovely gifts. We highly recommend his house, which is at 2 min walk from the metro station, a great location to visit Kyoto. Thank you again for everything, Kenta, we look forward to coming back soon!
