Kirakuan is a spotless, comfortable home. It is a Machiya with brand new Scandivania style interior design, a perfect combination of east and west, old and New.
It is just like home with everything you can think of. The appliances are much better than 5 star hotels, but the price is very reasonable.
My family of 3 adults stayed there for 3 days. Tomomi is so kind as to help us book a nice restaurant, a favor very few hotels would do, and hand-draw a map to help us find the place. She also offered milk, yogurt, fruit juice and snacks for breakfast. Tomomi gave us great advice on restaurants and temples to visit. Taking The morning class in a nearby temple is a great experience, even though I cannot understand any Japanese.
Thank you very much, Tomomi and Mako for offering such an amazing apartment. We will definitely recommend it to friends and hope we can stay there again soon enough.
