What Past Guests Are Saying
Conveniently located, charming and traditional.
Nanako house was our home from home in Kyoto for 4 nights in early March 2013. It was easy to arrange the reservation and Nobu (the owner) made it easy to find. He also kindly booked and arranged tickets for a show for us prior to our arrival.
The house itself is a lovely, traditional space, with all the amenities required and a small, tranquil garden space. It's situated a little out of the centre of town, and has great bus links to the whole city.
On arrival, Nobu talked us through the local amenities (supermarket, convenience store, post office and handicraft centre all within a minute's walk) and took time to explain how the local buses worked and answer any questions. He also provided a folder of useful information (including recommended nearby restaurants), a bus map and a city map.
In short, we loved the location and facilities, the owner was incredibly helpful and we would recommend this as an ideal place for groups of 2-4 people.
Peaceful and homely base to explore Kyoto from
We stayed at Nanako House for 5 nights in april, as our final stop in Japan after visits to Tokyo and Takayama.
The machiya was perfect for our needs - a calm spot in a great location for walking or bus to the major sites. It was bigger than we had expected, and very clean and comfortable.
Nobu gave us lots of very useful information on Kyoto when we arrived (including maps and how to use the buses), as well as local information (e.g. supermarkets, bus stops, local sights and where to eat) - it was a very kind and helpful introduction to Kyoto.
I would not hesitate to recommend Nanako House and think it would suit couples and families well (as the living room can double up as a second bedroom)I would stay again without a doubt - we were sad to leave!
Wonderful Place-Wonderful Host
We spent a week at Nobu's Nanako House Machiya and wish we were still there. Great location, spacious rooms, lots of amenities, comfy, and all supported by a great host.
Nobu gave us a very clear orientation and provided lots of really useful info and tips for the area (good restaurants, local suggestions for other things). The few times we needed to ask Nobu about something, he responded immediately.
We will absolutely stay at Nobu's Machiya again the next time we return to fantastic Kyoto; it was a quiet and restful place to return to each day, yet very close to fine bakeries, restaurants, a great market, cafes, and a beautiful temple. If I sound a bit over-the-top about our stay at Nobu's...it's only because my wife and I felt that way about the experience.

Nanako house - December 2012
We really enjoyed spending our days in Kyoto in Nanako house. The atmosphere of the house reflects Kyoto's traditional mood, while offering a cleaned and a full-of-option home environment. A good point is that Nanako house is very close to the Kyoto Handicraft Center, which offers a wide selection of books, both in English and Japanese, sweets, souvenirs and hands-on activities for making your traditional craft. A post office for your international withdrawals and a supermarket, open until 10 in the night, are at a walking distance from the house. The owner is always available to help with any occurrence and provided us with detailed information of the environs, including restaurants and transports facilities. We had adequate towels for our stay and a washing machine was available. We recommend Nanako house to those who want to experience the tranquil and traditional atmosphere of Kyoto.
