Host Review Score

It is a house that is a renovated 100-year old kimono shop with 'Kura'(Japanese-style warehouse) along the Kuratsuki canal. It is a 7-minute walk from JR Kanazawa Station and various sightseeing spots are easily accessible. < A cozy guesthouse > We are a small guesthouse with the maximum 10 persons capacity, and we have no facilities like hotel. However, you can enjoy Japanese life style and culture experience. We would be happy to make yourself comfortable at Pongyi as it is your own home in . < Save Kids in Asia > Since Pongyi was opened, we have continued support poor children in Asia by donating 100yen from each guest's accommodation expense and the mnost of Pongyi's profits through NPO.
I have lived in Brazil and Paraguay in South America before. My personality from other people is said to be relaxed and continental. I had a Buddhist monk experience in Myanmar although it was a short period. It was a very valuable experience for me, so I made the word of monk in Myanmarese 'Pongyi' the name of this guesthouse. Pongyi helps children in Asia. At Pongyi we take pleasure if our guests can return home well rested and treasure their stay at our guesthouse. I look forward to seeing you all in Kanazawa.
