Our names are Showichy and Uta ,Yamamoto.
Showichy was born and brought up here in Kyoto.
Uta was born in Kanazawa ,Ishikawa.
We have been welcoming Japanese and overseas visitors for more than 35
We came from Singapore to view the autumn foliage.We were very fortunate
to see the beautiful colours of the various trees both in the city as well
as in the farther area such as in Arashiyama,Takao and Fushimi inari.
I took more than 1,500 photos because every thing was beatiful.A week in
Kyoto passes quickly and so has our visit.We know that we have barely seen
Kyoto. We hope to visit this beatiful piece of heaven on earth again and

We are from Israel.
We stayed at Yurakuso and enjoyed it very much.The location of the guesthouse
is very convenient. It is close to a few very important sightseeing spots
and also just one bus drive from
the central bus and train station.Most important is that the owner,Mr.Yamamoto,
is so very nice and helpful about every little thing that we asked him
about .The room and facilities are are very comfortable and we feel very
lucky that we stayed at Yurakuso.

I am a mathematics student from Hong Kong to study in Kyoto University
for two months, I stayed in Yurakuso guest house during my visit. I often
spend 20mins for riding a bicycle from my room to Yoshida campus (main
compus) along the Kamo river, it is not only conivencent, but also you
can enjoy the scene along the riverside. Moreover, I got a lot of fun in
guest house, such as I got many new friends in the guest house, they are
very nice and came from all over the world, the share facitilies are very
clean and tiny, etc. I am sure you must have the same feeling after you
stay in Yurakuso.

Coming from Cape Town ,South Africa to Japan has been a mind-blowing experience.Everything
is so different!.I attended a conference at Kansai Seminar House .so Yurakuso
was conveniently located. It was so comforting coming back each
evening to a home away from home.Yurakuso is safe ,comfortable and clean.Mr
Yamamoto is a great host and goes out of his way to serve.

Ich habe zwei Monate in Kyoto gelebt, um mein Berufspraktikum an der Universitaet
von Kyoto zu absolvieren. Das Yurakuso Guest Haus war dabei eine gute und
preiswerte Unterkunft. Mit guter Vekehrsanbindung, ruhig, und mit viel
Gruen und er im Sommer so wichtigen Klimanlage im voll moblierten Zimmer.
I have stayed for two month in Kyoto, in order to commit an internship
at Kyoto University, and do research on Hypertehmophiles. Yurakuso Guest
House is definetly worth it's money, actually it is one of the best prices
you can find in Kyoto. Air condition, quiet, green neighborhood, good public
transportation, and cheap bicycle rental by Yamamoto san.

I really enjoyed staying here. The location is quiet and still close enough
to the city for easy access. The river nearby provides a perfect place
to relax after a long day temple touring. I drove from Kagoshima Pre. to
study Japanese for one month and the quiet rooms are perfect for study.
As a JET teacher I have seen a lot of Japan but there is no place like
Kyoto. Mr Yamamoto is a wealth of information and can help with all sorts
of questions. Try this place for a comfortable stay in Kyoto.

Ik ben een student die Aziatische business studeert en ik verblijf voor
mijn studie in japan nu al een paar maanden en het bevalt me goed. Ik zit
u in Kyoto voor 2 maanden en ik zit nu sinds een paar dagen in dit gueast
house. Het is 1 van de goedkoopste plekken die ik kon vinden en ik ben
tevreden met de kamer die ik heb. De meeste plaatsen zijn makkelijk te
bereiken vanuit hier. Dus ik kan deze plek zeker aanraden zowel voor een
kort verblijf als een langdurig verblijf.

" I enjoyed my short stay at Yurakuso. Mr. Yamamoto was very kind
and did all he could to make my stay as enjoyable as possible. The guest
house is very well located. There's a lot of things to be seen around it
: temples, the imperials castles, shops and much more. When I return to
Kyoto, I'll probably stay in Yurakuso again. "

I was attending an international conference in Kyoto for 1 week and stayed
at this guesthouse for two weeks. I found it more economical to use Kyoto
as a base for travel around west Japan by Japan Rail pass instead of moving
from one town to another every night with my backpack. In addition to temples
and shrines, there are one palace and two imperial villas in Kyoto. I recommend
a visit to the imperial villas with nice gardens and view of the city from
the mountain. To stay at this guesthouse, I suggest getting a bus pass
to visit the sights around the city instead of the subway.

Chamo-me Joana, e sou de Macau. Esta e a primeira vez estava em Kyoto,
e estou muito contente que estava habitacionada em Yurakuso, especialmente
com a simpatia de Yamamoto-san e a sua esposa. Contudo, nao esta no centro
da cidade,mas pode ter mais oportunidade de aproximar com montanha e natureza,
o transporte aqui em Kyoto e facil.
