The property was a short walk from Nijo station on the JR Sagano line. The Japan Rail Pass will get you access to the Nara line and the Sagano line which go to most of the major attractions in Kyoto. The host was extremely kind and genuinely helpful, outstanding in every respect, bending over backwards to accommodate requests, however minor. The facilities are great and exceptionally clean, I never had trouble with the showers being full. In the dorm there was a huge locker with lots of hangers/hanger space, with included lock. Bed was spacious. I couldn’t find something bad about this Oumi guest house. This place has everything you could need and you will be so taken care of.
