    I had a wonderful stay at Miyako's flat! On my first day, Miyako picked me up from the subway station. She showed me around in her neighbourhood, she showed me a shrine, a temple and the bus stop that is really near the house - I really appreciated that. Her dinner was always delicious. Every evening, we talked about my experiences in Japan, it was so nice to talk to her. She even helped me to send my luggage to my next hotel, that was really convenient. So all in all, my stay was amazing!

    The one month long stay at Miyakos place was wonderful.
    Miyako is a very kind and open person. And her cooking was always superb.
    Whenever I had a question she tried to help me as good as she could.
    Thanks to her I could join an English class and try Japanese calligraphy.

    I really enjoyed my time in Kyoto.
    Thank you!

    Als Frau alleinreisend und noch nie in Japan war diese ruhige Unterkunft ideal. Im ruhigen Norden von Kyoto gelegen und doch sehr verkehrsgünstig (Bus Nr 46, 2 Minuten vom Haus entfernt, geht fast überall hin, für 230 Yen) fühlte ich mich sehr wohl und konnte mich in aller Ruhe an Japan gewöhnen.
    Mijako half mir mit detaillierten Zeichnungen alles zu finden. Der sehr schöne Botanische Garten und das fußgänger- und radfahrerfreundliche Flussufer waren fußläufig zu erreichen.

    In der Nähe gibt es eine lange Einkaufsstraße.

    Das Zimmer ist groß genug für eine Person und das Futon war bequem. Es grenzt direkt an das Wohnzimmer an mit einer Schiebetür zu schließen. Dort gibt es einen Plasma Fernseher.
    Es gibt eine AC.

    Das Frühstück ist leicht, wie beschrieben und Miyako bereitet jeden Abend ein Essen vor für sich, Ihren Mann und den Gast. Das war äußerst angenehm, da mir die japanische Küche nicht sehr vertraut ist.

    Miyako spricht und schreibt gut Englisch, was auch hilfreich war. Ihr Mann spricht kein Englisch.

    Sehr gewürdigt habe ich auch, dass Miyako meine Wäsche in der Maschine mitgewaschen hat.

    Ein rundum angenehmer 2-wöchiger Aufenthalt. Danke Miyako.

    Miyako-san and her husband were fantastic hosts! I always felt welcomed in their home and my stay was a pleasant one. Miyako-san's cooking was always super delicious and I looked forward to her meals every day. Miyako-san was always happy to answer an questions I had and was always willing to help. Hope to see you again in the future!

    Miyako is a fantastic host and a formidable lady. She has many talents, is a hardworking optimist and is a traveller herself. Although their apartment is small, their hospitality was great. We found our stay tuned us into the Japanese way of life and eating. Liz and Ian, Skipton, UK.

    Miyako is a kind and thoughtful host. I was very comfortable and enjoyed my month long stay in her home. Her homemade bread was great in the morning, and in the evenings I got to try lots of different kinds of Japanese food! all of it was delicious! I also got to practice my Japanese a lot which was very helpful. I also enjoyed using the bicycle as much as possible. I will miss them both very much!

    色々ありがとうございました :)

How do I book?

Contact the host about your stay - tell them a little about yourself, why you are staying and ask any questions you have about their homestay. You will be able to book immediately after sending your message.

When do I pay?

Once a host confirms they're available, you can go ahead and pay the 15% booking fee (maximum of 199 $£€ for longer term bookings) and a 25% deposit using a choice of payments: Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Maestro, Laser, JCB & PayPal. The deposit is collected in advance on behalf of the host to protect against no show or late cancellations (within 7 days of arrival). You then pay your host the balance due on arrival. The 25% deposit payment is made to the host 2 business days after your scheduled arrival date. This deposit payment will only be refunded if you cancel the booking at least 7 full days prior to arrival.

When can I share my contact details?

Host and Guest email address, phone number and home address will be exchanged in a confirmation email sent to both immediately after a booking is completed. It's against our policy for Guests and Hosts to exchange direct contact details via our messaging system.
