This guest house is located in very quiet residential area. This is one of the charming points about this house. However, at the same time, your neighbors want to have minimum disruption to their lives. They are very friendly and welcoming, but this is an old, established neighborhood. We therefore respectfully request that you think of them and try to refrain from loud noises both inside and outside the house, particularly in the early morning and evenings. It is also the reason why we have to be strict with our check-in times of between 15:00 - 20:00.

My name is Junko and I'm a mother of 4 children ( 9, 6, and 1 and 1...yes they are twins! )
My sister Noriko and I have started this guest house from December 2016. We are so thrilled to meet new people from all over the World : )
Little bit about us.
I have lived in U.S. for 7 years (High school and University in Oregon), married to British guy ( from london) and live in Iwakura Kyoto.
I love to go out to eat or go out to watch movies, but I have 1 year old twins so that makes it little bit difficult for now.
My sister Noriko have studied in Canada and U.K. She has one daughter who is 19 and trying to be a nurse. She is into Korean dramas now and hoping to start taking Korean lessons soon!!
We would love to help the guest any way we can! Like booking restaurants or finding out information for them. We will make sure you have all the help you need while you are at our place!
Please feel free to ask us anything ; )
