“Wonderful place to stay”
Reviewed 27 July 2017 for a stay in July 2017

This was an amazing place to stay for our family. It was me, my wife and our two kids (3 and 7 years old). Hideo-san picked us up at the bus station and gave us a ride to the supermarket where we could buy food and breakfast.
The kids really loved this house!
Hideo-san and his wife was so kind and helpful to us during our whole stay there.
And the surrounding area was so calm and beautiful, we really loved staying at this place.
We were able to eat dinners together with Hideo-san and his wife. Yukako-san cooked so delicious food, her cooking was soooooo good.
During our stay we visited some places together with Hideo-san who drove us around in his car. We were able to visit some really amazing places.

Couldn't have had a better place to stay during our trip to Japan.

Thank you so much Hideo-san and Yukako-san!

I enjoyed everything with them very much. They always support our cooking,clean. And they give me interesting explanation about Sweeden culture and nature. 2 kids are very shy. But they are polite and having good smile. I really like their attitude. I hope to come here Sweeden guests. I understood Sweeden people charactor.
Thank you very much for your good wind. See you again.

“Wonderous Adventure to Japan”

By the Amazing Grace of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ we were able to make an incredible journey to Japan. Our hosts Hideo and Yukako Uyeda made our journey that much more memorable. From the beautiful night to see fireflies for the very first time, to wandering through the Bamboo Forest, eating delicious ramen, and sharing hotpot and soba meals, laughter and fun conversation. Thank you

“Special Japanese homestay ”
Reviewed 6 January 2017 for a stay in January 2017

If you're like our family & are keen to experience the cultures of the places you visit, first hand - then staying at Tokuheian is a must do. Apart from being an amazing home which has been past down through 7 generations (and is has all the modern facilities like hair dryers, excellent heating etc) it's the people who own this home that make it special. Hideo and Yukata are lovely, warm and fun people who go out of their way to make sure your stay meets (and exceeds) your expectations. During our stay we shared some wonderful meals (we bought the food with Yukata and she prepared it), visited local villages, trekked through the forest in search of the 1000 year old tree and visited an onsen. Tours can be customised. It is a 1.5 hour bus ride through a windy, picturesque road - you're in the middle of northern Kyoto and the pace is very different to Tokyo but just as special. Highly recommended for travellers in search of something different where you live and breathe the Japanese culture in a refreshingly relaxed pace. Thank you Hideo and Yukata for your hospitality.

“A beautiful adventure in the mountains”

My husband and I were very fortunate to find this amazing little house owned by Hideo and his beautiful wife Yukako. We spent a fantastic weekend and which provided us a wonderful opportunity to experience the Japanese countryside in Keihoku which is about a 1 hour, scenic bus ride from the Kyoto train station. Hideo and Yukako have good English speaking skills and they are very engaging and kind hosts. WE had many laughs together, good conversation and we were treated like family. The beds were comfortable with a large kitchen and dining room. Plenty of room for the whole family. I recommend adding on some of the activities Hideo offers to enhance your visit. Cooking and enjoying a meal, a hike in an ancient forest to see 800 year old cedar trees, there are bicycles for riding around the beautiful pastoral farmlands. Yukako is a great cook and you can arrange to add on meals to your stay for a small fee.This is a great opportunity to leave the big cities of Japan behind and see the countryside. You will have an experience to remember.

We enjoyed life with them very much. They helped to entertain TV show for us. Then Japan people can watch TV program "jinsei no rakuen"(paradise of life) on Dec 3rd at 18:00 Asahi TV. I will enjoy this program. And I will send DVD soon.
Thank you very much for everything.

“Unique wonderful place to visit!”
Reviewed 15 September 2016 for a stay in July 2016

It was such a pleasure and beautiful experience to visit . We can't thank our hosts Hideo and his wife enough for all the personal attention and private touring that we booked with him. We felt like visiting family and would definitely return .The house was nice and clean and had everything we needed. The nature and area around is absolutely stunning with lots of hiking trails ,waterfalls etc. Kyoto is also only about one hour away .We would highly recommend to visit!
Thanks again
