Our guesthouse was broadcasted!!
After the long cold weather (It snowed in Tokyo in APRIL!!), It's been very hot in Kyoto...finally! It was more than 30 degrees yesterday.
We had a great "Golden Week", which is one of the longest public holidays in Japan, and there were lots of tourists came to Kyoto.
In the Golden Week, our guesthouse was broadcasted in a famous local programme called "Yo-i Don". Did you guys check it?!
In the programme, a famous singer walks around in various local areas in Kinki and stops by some unique places. And this time, it was Kyoto station area.
He stopped by our guesthouse and asked us some questions like, "What is this place?". Because it's unusual to see many English letters in Japan.
Basically, our owner talked about why she started the guesthouse, what our guesthouse aims for and so on. It's worth checking it out!!
From now on, there are still many events coming out.
Aoi Festival on 15th is one of them. This is one of the 3 biggest fastivals in Kyoto. This festival consists of a procession of beautifully decorated oxcarts attended by some 500-plus people dressed in Heian-period costume.
Come to our ryokan to enjoy Kyoto with our friendly staff.
We are waiting for your arrival!
