'How to feel the very essence of traditional Japanese culture', 'How to experience a machiya townhouse', 'Can I try to stay at a shukubo (visitors' or pilgrims' lodgings in a temple)? '
It is recommended to book your accommodation before you come to Kyoto as Kyoto gets extremely crowded on weekend and the night before a national holiday in spring (April-May) and autumn (October-November).
