二条城南東 略地図



South East of Nijo Castle

World heritage "Nijo Castle" is one of the most famous landmarks of Kyoto.

A project started in 2011 to restore important cultural assets over the span of 20 years. In the year 2013 the Tang gate of Ninomaru Goten and last year the main entrance gate of Nijo castle was repaired.

In the large site of Nijo castle, in addition to the regular events of morning yoga and special breakfast, attractive programs such as classic car exhibition, art aquarium combining goldfish swimming tank and projection mapping in the night are held one after another, and they have become one of the reasons for the tourists to visit.

As this property is located in the alley about 6 minutes on foot from Nijo Castle, you are also within walking distance to subway Tozai line, subway Karasuma line, and Hankyu Kyoto line.

Life in the alley

Located in the southeast of Nijo Castle, this property sits in a narrow alley with just enough space for a bicycle to pass by.

This tiny alley does connect to bigger streets like Horikawa or Aneyakoji street, but just because the alley is not so noticeable from the outside, you can really feel the atmosphere of the lives of the people living here.

In this alley, each of the household plants flowers for every season as people here greets each other "Good morning" "Good evening". Jizo, a deity that is treasured by people in Kyoto, watches over the children day and night. It even has its own summer festival called "Jizo Bon" where children and families of the neighborhood socialize in the alley.

Between these neighbors, there is a sense of distance that is not too close and not too far away ... and this is a Kyo-Machiya that locates in the center of this community.

Floor Plan

With the number of rooms and space available, it is possible for families to start living here with renovation to the wet area and renewal of plumbing products.


Total Floor Area:Approx. 87.08 sqm

The current floor area is about 87.08 square meters and is enough for families of 3~4. As it is an old building, there is a necessity to repair, but the degree of renovation is highly flexible, and that certainly adds some fun and uniqueness to this building.
