Out of the way from downtown
Small but all necessary facilities. Kitchen is minimalist but workable. Best perk is that the unit came with two bikes. One bike had a good set of gears that allow handling steep hills. The second bike was single gear. quiet street and neighbourhood. no more than 10 minutes from grocery store.If you are cycling to downtown Kyoto you can;t avoid the hills.
Pros: The bikes are a big plus otherwise it will be a lot of taxi travel.
Cons: If you want to prepare a full dinner meal a couple of extra cooking pots would be helpful
Location: Not a lot within walking distance. It is almost 1/2 hr to bike downtown. the neighbourhood is combination residential low rise and small commercial.
