This beautifully renovated townhome which we call Blue Tengu (after the legendary creature found in Japanese folk religion) is just a few minutes from the Karasuma subway line which offers easy access to Kyoto station and the commercial center of Kyoto. Since it is only one stop the location is ideal for those coming from Kyoto station. A great base if you have a JR rail pass and want to go on day trips to explore other places like Nara, Osaka, Kobe, Hiroshima etc.

El lugar

Tucked down a side street away from the traffic and noise, Blue Tengu is a charming example of the manner in which citizens of this city have lived for generations. By choosing to stay in our lovely townhome, you will truly be able to experience Kyoto as a local.

The townhouse is close to shops and cafes, with lively Kyoto station area just 10min walk. Hachijo street (south of Kyoto station) provides an interesting array of culinary offerings, traditional establishments and Japanese confectionary and tea shops in a charming ambiance that feels more like a village than a big city. There are two convenience stores (7-11 and Lawson) close by which are open 24hrs.

Blue Tengu is a charming traditional Japanese boutique townhouse which has been completely renovated. Modern facilities have been added to provide the highest level of guest comfort. The house has been tastefully decorated with elements of both Japanese traditional and modern contemporary styles. Bedding is Japanese style (tatami mats and futons). There is a Western style sofa in the living area which is a great place to relax with coffee and a book while recovering from exploring. The house is 35 square meters in size. It should be comfortable for a up to 4 adults or for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids. The kids are sure to enjoy the loft.

We have renovated the house to both accentuate the traditional charm and add modern features to ensure guest comfort. I have tried to add a personal touch by adding art that I like and sewing Japanese traditional style cushion covers.

We have a brand new flat screen HD TV along with Amazon Fire TV and Netflix. A Pocket Wifi is included so you can still be connected to email, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) maps etc while exploring the city.

The house is fitted with a range of modern conveniences to ensure you can relax and get the most out of your stay. The reverse-cycle air-conditioner both heats and cools to keep you comfortable no matter what the weather is like outside. The quiet and energy efficient washer-dryer removes the hassle usually associated with doing laundry while on vacation, maximising the time you can spend exploring this wonderful city. Our modern kitchen is small and mighty. It is small enough not to take up too much space but sufficient to cook meals if you prefer to eat in. There is a dining table with seating for 4 which can also be used for work or study if you prefer.

Disponible para huéspedes

You will have full access to the whole house and everything inside it. No need to share anything with anyone else. Host does not reside onsite.

Atención a los huéspedes

Keith's apartment was exactly as pictured. The amenities were exactly as described and modern. The weather during our stay in Kyoto was particularly humid so we were relieved the washer/dryer was simple & easy to use and the shower was high quality (shower head can be placed high & water pressure was excellent). The two air conditioners were powerful and helped us stay comfortable. We initially were anxious about sleeping on futons & tatami mats but found them comfortable and nothing to worry about. The location is in a quiet neighborhood one stop south of Kyoto station. It was a bit out-of-the-way but for us that was the point; we really enjoyed the change of pace after long tiring days of sightseeing. To get there you follow a series of alleys--it was tricky to find the first time. But for us that only enhanced the charm. There is a 7-11 convenience store within a 5 minute walk that we found ourselves frequenting for coffee/snacks/water nearly every day. As I mentioned the neighborhood is quiet and might seem boring--but if you have the time (we stayed 6 nights) it is worth exploring. We found a great Ramen shop 2-3 blocks away and a solid Okonomoyaki restaurant as well. Overall Keith was a great host. Responsive and helpful--he even met us for drinks one night. My wife & I give Keith and this listing our highest possible endorsement.

We had a wonderful stay at Keith's house. The house is conveniently located a few minutes' walk from Kujo Station on the Kyoto Subway, which made for easy access to Kyoto Station and the rest of the city. The house itself was very nicely decorated, brightly lit, clean, and fitted with a modern bathroom and a fully-equipped kitchen. There was a Lawson convenience store right around the corner and a 7-Eleven several blocks away for any needed supplies. The Netflix-equipped TV was also great for relaxing after a long day spent sightseeing around the city, and we had plenty of use for the provided Pocket Wi-Fi. The futon beds were very comfortable as well, not too different feeling than a conventional mattress. Keith's directions to the house were thorough and clear, and he was a very friendly, communicative, and accommodating host who went the extra mile in being attentive to our questions and needs. Living in a real residential neighborhood in Kyoto was a fantastic experience and we hope to return again the next time we visit!

We really enjoyed our stay at Keith's place. The home was clean and comfortable, the air conditioners were incredibly effective, and the water pressure in the shower/bath were the best we've ever had while traveling. But what we loved the most was the integration of traditional Japanese-style of the home (tatami, shoji, bath depth, etc.) and some modern Western features like a sofa and chairs that made everything feel so luxurious and comfortable. We'd definitely stay here again. The only difficult thing about staying here was that it was a bit hard to find our first time. While the host's instructions were very clear, we were just not accustomed to turning down some of those alleyways. It was tough on a blistering hot summer day, coming with our baby and baggage, trying to navigate those streets, but this is not a fault of the host, and ultimately I am glad we got to experience that too.

The accommodation is located 10 minutes from the kyoto station and 4 minutes from the metro kujo. At 5 minutes, there is a supermarket through the alleys. The proximity to the train station made it easy to reach the sights of Kyoto although the metro / train network is less well designed than the one in Tokyo. The accommodation is located in alleys that are not visible in (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)map. The information given by Keith makes it possible to reach the housing without difficulty. We found the apartment very clean and well equipped. When we arrived, the air conditioning was on the way: the welcome was refreshing for the 30 or 35 degre C of Kyoto in August. The accommodation is very friendly and makes you want to stay longer. We enjoyed the wooden decoration. The images of the site correspond to the reality even if the stay on the spot makes it possible to better see where they were taken. It is well equipped and nothing missed us. We ( 4 adults ) had a good stay in this typical accommodation. We will definitely stay here again.

Hi, I’m Keith.

I’m originally from Melbourne, Australia. I have have always had a fascination with Asia since I was young. After traveling through various exotic Asian locales before reaching Japan I decided to make Kyoto my home. I have now lived here for almost 20 years and do not see myself ever leaving this wonderful place.

For the last decade and more I have been working with a wide range of Japanese companies to help them globalize their operations. It has been an interesting journey and I have learned much along the way. Japan is very intriguing and full of contradictions which keeps things interesting. Now my main focus is vacation rentals. I get most enjoyment from meeting guests and exploring Kyoto together.

Kyoto has made such a positive impression on my life. I sincerely hope that you will fall in love with Kyoto as I did. I look forward to welcoming you!
