I am always available for any help necessary for information, reservation, advice, etc. I love Kyoto and like to share my interest with you. I will try my best to enable my guests to fully explore and enjoy this wonderful city.
There are two bedrooms on the second floor, however they are separated by a paper sliding door. They are not private with each other so please understand. Of course we rent the whole house to one group and you will not share anything with a stranger.
We basically expect our guests to behave the way they would do at home, respecting local laws and regulations.
Obviously, no shoes in the house.
Sorry, but we do not allow pets.
Absolutely no smoking in and around the house, including in the garden.
Ours is a residential area. Guests should be careful not to make excessive noise, mainly in the evening or when accessing or leaving the house.

It is my honor that Hershey's home could highlight your trip in Kyoto and I will do my best to achieve that.
