- “ The warm hospitality that my friend and I got from the family that run this Japanese inn was second to none (perfect!). They provided tea and a snack upon our arrival. Although they did not speak English, they had explanations of how everything works written in English. Everything was super clean. The room price was very reasonable and the inn was located only a 10 minute walk to Kiyomizu temple. A very quiet place with a curfew of 11 pm makes it the ideal place for relaxing after seeing temples ”

- “ Abslutely 100% recommendable. Super friendly couple runs the place. Everything is nice, clean and in top condition. Also good homemade breakfast - japanese and western style. The only little thing that should be considered is the approx. 10min walk to the next subway station. but as the area where yamato is located in has lots to offer thats almost not worth mentioning. Yamato is a good choce! =) ”

- “ Guesthouse Yamato is located in a brilliant spot, facing a gorgeous patch of forest, just a 5 min walk to Kiyomizu Dera(KD), with a beautiful back garden, smack in the heart of Kyoto & just 7-10 mins from a bus stop. It meant being able to get to the KD temple early in the morning (opens at 6am)when there's hardly anyone there, which is such a treat. Very clean, well lit & beautiful space. Only serious challenge was that those managing the guesthouse, though super friendly, barely spoke English! ”
