Great location for commute and shopping

Otsu used to be a merchant's town called "Omi" in the past, where it was seen as a relay point for travelers visiting Kyoto or Osaka. The convenience of Otsu hasn't changed in the modern days, as people can get to Kyoto, Osaka, Nagoya easily by train or car. With multiple supermarkets and shopping malls around, residents of Otsu have no trouble in buying what they need.


Wells that have supported the lives of Omi people existed indoors within the historical Machiya town houses. In the upper part of the kitchen there is a colonnade with a feeling of openness of the remnants of the Double Height Ceiling, and the beams there are left in a beautiful form. Also, the charm of this property is the hidden potential of renovation. You can refurbish the contemporary style atmosphere of as it is, or combine the Tatami rooms on the first floor to make a spacious living room.
