  • Description

    Redesigned by the famous Japanese architect Mr. Yoshihiko Mamiya, this machiya is over 100 year old. During the renovation, special attention was paid to the look and atmosphere of the place for the enjoyment of our guests.

    This house follows our concept “Old Traditional Machiya with Modern Luxury Comfort". Fully insulated and equipped with floor heating, radiators and air conditioners, the house is comfortable at all seasons. The whole space has been decorated with various old traditional Japanese art-crafts and features a "tsubo niwa" (courtyard garden).
    Also, to provide a pleasant bright environment around the ground floor (traditional Machiya are often quite dark), we created a light pit above the staircase and restored the original “Hibukuro".

    The place is very conveniently located for easy access to all sightseeing sites around Kyoto, and with some 73 m2 (780 sq ft), it is adequate for a larger group (spacious enough for 6 people).

    And of course, our guests have unlimited access to super fast (optical fiber) internet access via Wi-Fi throughout the house.
