K's Villa Kamogawa and Matsumi

Shimogyo Ward, Kyoto

Popular points of interest near the holiday home include Sanjusangen-do Temple, TKP Garden City Kyoto and Kiyomizu-dera Temple. The nearest airport is Itami Airport, 47 km from K's Villa Kamogawa and Matsumi. Spacious apartments with gorgeous interior and breathtaking views outside. One of the bedrooms has wall-height window with view on the river and small street beyond it. It's nice to have a coffee in the morning looking at crows, herons and other creatures having their routines in this river. The same is applicable for evening with just a little different colors. Another bedroom has view on the quite street and authentic Japan roofs. Wallpaper-like sight! There is spacious kitchen/dining room at the first floor where your group can have an evening beer. There is a small garden outside with the same river view. You could just sit there forever. There is another garden split between two villas, where you probably can have small conversation with you neighbors There is a TV room with a kind of foot heater in the center of the room. We haven't been able to use this one, but should be probably good experience especially in the winter. Beauty and hygiene facilities as usual: towels of all sizes, soaps, shampoos, conditioners, toothbrush, toothpaste, hairdryer. There is wooden or looking similar to wood bath there with window looking into garden/river. Toilets in this country are beyond comparison. This place even get further - fills toilet with some kind of aromatic foam after each use. Walls, floors, wooden furniture - everything has so nice look and feel, that you are relaxing just looking at it. And it feels like luxurious though still traditional Japanese village. The street is quite and small. Nice to have morning stroll to get some coffee. There is a couple of coffeeshops nearby - about 500m. We also liked evening/night walks down/up the river - beautiful city sceneries. As there are bars/restaurants accessible by foot it could be nice to end such river walks in some izakaya near home. By the way it's possible to leave luggage at the reception near villa. It's not far from Kyoto Station - around 1km.
