I don’t feel safe when staying with kids at This property. The property seems to be very fragile. You can hear all the noise around the street. Even when the next door people slide their door. Cannot sleep properly. Mosquito bite can be an issue for our family as there is still marks on my kids face and body. The owner lives very close to the house. Very helpful and nice lady. The house might be suitable for adults alone but not family with kids.

We had been staying in this beautiful house for 7 days during our visit to Kyoto. It is such a great experience for us to understand the traditional living style and culture of Kyoto. Korakuan is well maintained and we feel very comfortable with the facilities provided. A map of the nearby area, train/JR stations and a list of restaurant are well prepared by the owner. We tried the public bath and some restaurants recommended which are good. Best of all , Ms Rika , the owner is very nice and helpful. She attended to all our request immediately and was a great help to us during our stay. Thank you Rika. Will definitely stay again and it is highly recommended.
