Imagine a Japanese Machiya that is decorated with antique furnitures from around the world,
where every corner of the house feels like parts of a interior design magazine.
Take a tour at this large scale Kyo-Machiya (currently operated as guest house)
located on Omiya Kuramaguchi St. that has accompanied and charmed hundreds of travelers.

While the interior may have a more western atmosphere, the characteristic of a Kyo-Machiya
can be easily found as it's separated to the main building, mid garden, and detached building.
