Deposits are non-transferable. If you wish to change your accommodation dates you must first cancel your original booking. There are no refunds regardless of the circumstances for cancellations made less than a week in advance.

Please understand the building is a simple Japanese style building with shared facilities. We expect our guests to be considerate of all other staying guests. Kisami has a very local vibe. It’s very safe and the people are extremely friendly so don’t hesitate to say “konichiwa”. We ask guests to respect to local area and it’s people by keeping quiet in the neighborhood, especially at night.
