The machiya located at the foot of Eastern mountains in Kyoto is close to the philosopher's lane about 2 minutes' walk.
The house was built in Taisho era about 100 years ago, and has been taking good care with the feeling of respect to the carpenters who built it, and handed over many years.
The green from the garden is beautifully reflected on fusuma, sliding doors, through glass pane which were made by hand.
The design based on the beauty of the nature is highly sophisticated in its simpleness.
Furthermore, the history of 100 years gives deep taste to the house.
You'd feel the warmth wrapped up in long history and unchangeable beauty which is not affected by time- passing.
The garden through the window frame looks as if you are looking at a picture from the quiet sitting room in a dim light.
The greeneries standing out in the darkness makes the room filled with tranquil atmosphere.
The philosopher’s path is nearby, so that the cherry blossoms and momiji leaves are occasionally swept by the breeze
and reached to the property in spring and autumn.
In summer, fireflies sometimes come and rest their wings on the sashes of windows.
There are many large beams crossing through the open ceiling (Hibukuro) preserved above the kitchen and they are as great as a cultural heritage.
The entrance is beautifully decorated with a front garden consisting of stepping stones and mosses that nicely colorize the cedar boards on exterior walls.
Unique design with no windows on road side has been created with the consideration of privacy and strong afternoon sunlight from the west.
By making the most of the land, breeze and sunshine are taken in to the house through the north and south windows facing the gardens.
The excellent design and ingenuities are something that are not inferior to those in now a days.
