Testimonials

Maana Kyoto

WOW what a beauty! Loved the kitchen and living area so much. We ended up cooking a few times just because the kitchen was so nice! The bathtub will make you never want to leave and the bedroom was such a vibe! Just a short walk to the station. The host was amazing! Very responsive, helpful and caring. We picked this place to be close to Arashiyama it’s only a few stops away. Highly recommend.

This is such a cool pad. If you want to live in serious style in central Kyoto for a reasonable price, this is the place for you. It’s beautifully maintained, has everything you need – even including a plentiful supply of free sake – and provides a super accessible base from which to explore all Kyoto has to offer.

Modern Machiya | MIBU

Our stay was perfect! We had a staycation and the place felt like a real home. Both floors are spacious with neat modern designs that work well with the old machiya feel. The record players and stereo was a plus for us, both being music nerds. The bath was also great as well. So far it’s been our favorite airbnb we stayed at!

Shiki Homes | TSURU KAME

Shiki’s place was amazing. It had such a nice feel, and feels very comfy. The property was pretty spacious and included a good amount of bed for a large party. The unit is near Nijo Castle by walking which is a UNESCO Heritage spot. A lot of the areas were 10-20min by bus. Closest station was Nijo Station which was about 15min by walking. Overall loved the property and would probably return again when given the chance.

Shiki Suites KYOTO UMEKOJI

This place is amazing! We were so surprised that the hotel was sparkly clean and found out that they just opened 6 months ago. Definitely recommending this place to friends and family who are planning to visit Kyoto. Aside, the place is accessible from Kyoto station (10-15mins walking)

Bella, Italy

Shiki Homes | IKKŌ 8

Highly recommended! It is very stylish and sparkling clean. The first floor has a living room, kitchen, dinning area, laundry room, shower room. The toilet is separated, right next to the entrance. The upstairs have two bedrooms connected with a sliding door. Each bedroom has a queen-size bed and it’s own air-conditioner. The host even provided laundry detergent and umbrellas. Overall it has everything we need. The house is in a quiet residence area. And you can walk to Kiyomizu-dera within 15 or 20 minutes. Please note that most of restaurants in the area are closed before 7. But you may find other opening dinning places in close by Gion district either by bus or walking. We had a wonderful experience staying at this property. Definitely want to come back in the future!

Shiki Homes | IKKŌ 9

Shiki’s place is way better than what I expected. The cleanliness is top notch, his response is fast, and everything you need is already provided. The 24 hrs convenience store is also only about 5-10 min walk (500m). Personally I really enjoyed his spacious bathroom (for japanese standard) after such tiring day to relax my body and mind (with unlimited hot water)

Shiki Homes | IKKŌ 10

My family and I were very happy staying at this great apt. while in Kyoto. The layout was perfect for us. These are very classy digs! Newly renovated; the amenities and details were modern and and the space was immaculate. 2 bedrooms upstairs are small but super nice! Downstairs is tight also but it a very well designed space. The most efficient space I’ve every stayed in. The 2 floors gave everyone enough space. We traveled through Japan for 2 weeks. If we could have been in this apt the entire time, it would have been perfect. This was the nicest, best priced and most comfortable place was stayed. The sleeper sofa downstairs is very comfortable and the quiet space gave my daughter the ability to wake up early to work while the rest of us slept. After long days of exploring the city it was great to have a good kitchen for cooking. It was a nice surprise to find Netflix on the large flatscreen TV. I would definitely stay here again if I find myself in Kyoto.

Shiki Homes | KYOKA

Absolutely outstanding place! It is very beautiful and very stylish, this place would give you a very Kyoto experience and help you to feel every bit of this ancient city. Everything in the house is just great and there is nothing you could complain about. The location is also highly convenient as it is less than 10mins away from nijo station. There is a shopping mall near the station and a few convenient stores and restaurants around the house as well. It is one of my best experiences and I highly recommend this place!

Bill, Taiwan

Shiki Homes | NATSU

Excellent place. Nice central location, found it very easy to walk to the places I wanted to see, and located not far from a few very good restaurants and 24 hour convenience stores. The stairs are very narrow and I had trouble climbing down them, but it wasn’t a huge problem. The bed was extremely comfortable and the amenities were great, a lot was provided for you. Very good stay, 5/5.

Shiki Homes | ZEN FUYACHO

This is a wonderful townhouse conveniently located. Instructions to operate everything were clear and in English as well as Japanese. Beautiful light woodwork throughout the space that looks like it was recently remodeled. Modern, clean, comfortable and cozy. If you are over 6’ tall you may have to watch your head going upstairs but it wasn’t a big issue for us. My daughter loved the access to Netflix. We all loved this townhouse and hope to come back again!

Laura, Mexico

Shiki Homes | ASUKA

We loved staying here. The kitchen and bathrooms were stylish and modern. The whole place has just been remodeled, so everything was brand new. The entire home was sparkling clean. Very spacious and convenient layout with one toilet upstairs. Great location and great hospitality from Shiki. We would stay here again!

Rakuyado | KYOTO STATION

Location was great for this apartment. 5 minute walk to Kyoto Station made a perfect location for exploring Kyoto. Bed and rooms were very comfortable and very clean. TFal water heater for tea and coffee with a jar of loose green tea and coffee pods, lots of slippers, wonderful bathroom/dryer unit. A jar of Q-Tips in the bathroom and extra toothbrushes, laundry detergent, bath soap/shampoo/conditioner all great touches. Heated floors in the lower unit so we never even turned on the heat upstairs. I was traveling with my adult son and it was very comfortable for us. Will return if back in Kyoto.

Had a great cosy stay at Aki. The place definitely has a traditional Japanese feel and combines it with cleanliness. Complimentary pocket wifi was a really nice touch. 🙂

Mihkel, Estonia

Shiki Homes | HARU

We could not recommend this place more highly. Comfortable, clean, great kitchen, great location (near subway, grocery store, attractions). This is a 5 star place, grab it if you can. Host accommodated our checkin and out needs. We would not hesitate to stay there again. Just perfect!

Susan, Canada

Shiki Homes | HIKARI

A traditional Japanese-style house with modern touches – a ‘home’ for the traveling couple or family to kick back in after a long day in and around Kyoto. If you don’t mind the walk (11ish mins, depending on your pace), the nearest station connects you to Kyoto with ease and is only a few stops away from the main hub. Lots of neighbourhood stores nearby (a cafe across the street, Family Marts and even an antique store), plus proximity to a local temple AND the Imperial Palace is hard to beat. Fully equipped house (and I mean FULLY EQUIPPED!), small but serene Zen garden, and the origami cranes welcoming you the house are all plus points. Thank you for being great and responsive hosts (make sure you get all your questions about traveling around Kyoto from the hotel front desk before you leave for the house), especially to Jack for taking in questions even after hours. Would recommend for a pleasent ryokan experience!

Raja, India

Shiki Homes | MAI

My family and I had a wonderful stay at Mai House! Loved the many small touches and conveniences around the house that made our stay so lovely and comfortable. We enjoyed staying indoors relaxing in the beautiful house as much as we did exploring beautiful Kyoto – we didn’t want to leave on the last day! Staff were also very professional, pleasant and prompt in their responses. Would strongly recommend this place to anyone! 🙂

Valerie, England

Shiki Homes | NENE

We really enjoyed our stay at the house. Everything was as shown and we took full advantage of the entertainment room even if one family member slept there. As the house is situated close to a larger street – noise from this street should be expected. All communication with Shiki was quick and very welcoming. Great stay.

Japan Sessions KANZAKI 01

The house is very stylish. Overall it’s a treat to live in a place like this. And location is really nice. Situated right on the hooded vendor street it’s very close to many great eateries and conbini. seven eleven is just a few steps away. And since it’s far from most of the popular areas in Osaka, it’s super quiet there. I would def stay again.

Anton, Canada

Shiki Homes | TOKI

This is a beautiful home. Located a short walk to a metro station and not far from a JR station either. Many incredible food options not far as well as convenience stores and a supermarket. Those who work at Shiki were incredibly helpful hosts and responsive whenever we had issues or questions. Would definitely recommend to any others travelling in Osaka.

Sarah, New Zealand

Shiki Homes | RURI

Wow, this place is great. Maybe the nicest Airbnb we have stayed in. Super close to metro spot. Took us five minutes to figure out it was in the alley behind, but it was sparkling clean and the shower was fantastic. Couldn’t be happier. Highly recommended by our family including teenage girls! I would say the four of us were very comfortable. You could squeeze a couple more in but it would be tight.

Tony, Australia

Shiki Homes | KURIKO

Fascinating experience to live in a typical small Japanese home. Basics like coffee, toiletries etc were on hand for an initial settling in. Make sure (Hidden by Airbnb) maps are working before setting out as the property is located off a huge pedestrian shopping mall with limited taxi access. Great supermarket approx 100m away in the shopping mall. Access to japans NHK english TV and Netflix was greatly appreciated. Overall we had an amazing time and would love to do it again.

Shiki Homes | TSUBAME

Stay there for 6 nights. Enjoy the place very much. It’s like a home away from home. Everything there and trains also near. Local mart just around the corner too. Lively neighborhood. Glad that for the first trip to japan was able to stay at the place.

Faris, Ireland

Shiki Homes | SUZAKU

Let me tell you guys this: an excellent perfect place for you, your friend or your family’s vacation! It is located in a very quiet neighborhood and only less than 8 mins walk from the metro station which holds trains from 5am to midnight everyday. Yet to mention the 24 hours convenient stores and supermarket nearby. The house is perfect! It has everything you need including full set of cooking wear and even a free portable WiFi device you can carry with you for internet hotspot. It is better than I expected! The host is very professional! This is definitely the right place for you with fair price! So, once in your lifetime, be cool! Just one thing though as to all who willing to stay in Japanese style house: beware to make your decision for the booking if you find difficulties to climb stairs! Cheers!

Shiki Homes | KURUMI

Amazing stay ! I came to Osaka for work and choosed to stay at Kurumi house. I was amazed by the cleanliness of the house when I first came in ! The location is convenient : few minutes by walk to the subway, which allows you to go around the city very easily. The supermarket, which is facing the house, makes life easy for groceries. There are also dozens of dining option within the surrounding streets. The wifi speed is perfect to work from the house, and the amenities are great (kitchen and bathroom are fully equipped). The communication with the host was the best I ever experienced ! Very friendly and helpful, fast responses, easy check in. Their house manual is so great : on top of explaining everything you need to know about the house and its appliances, they share their best addresses in town ! Well done Shiki, I will for sure stay again in one of your properties !
