My Kyoto Machiya was born from our love for the city we now call home, for its people and its tradition, and the pleasure we find in recreating enjoyable homes mixing old traditional features with our modern lifestyle.

We're an international couple sharing our time between Nice in France, Kyoto in Japan, and traveling around the world. We both fell in love with Kyoto and never have enough time to visit its numerous temples and shrines or attend one of its numerous festivals or events. There is always something going on in this amazing city and after so much time spent here, we still enjoy discovering new places and new things.

All our houses are fully equipped to satisfy the needs of travelers and become a "home away from home". Each one features a fully automatic washer/dryer, and a kitchen equipped with all necessary modern appliances, microwave and oven, induction cooktop, refrigerator, mixer or blender, pans, frying pans and pots, as well as plenty of plates, glasses, and cutlery.

Our website ( provides all kinds of practical and tourist information, suggestions for restaurants, and things to do while in Kyoto. And our bilingual English-speaking staff is available 24/7 for any required assistance or concern our guests may have. We also offer limited concierge services for restaurant reservations or others.

We hope to be able to share our enthusiasm and our love for this wonderful city with our guests.
