Uchiwa shop with over 100 years of history.
This Kyo-Machiya is currently the office/residence of a local Uchiwa (paper fan) maker that has over 100 years of history. As the 4th generation owner decided to move to a new location, this historical Kyo-Machiya becomes available for a new owner who wishes to start a new business or simply reside here.

A two storey Kyo-Machiya with Hibukuro corridor.
A So-Nikai KyoMachiya that faces a road with busy traffic. The main building is used as office and residence, while the warehouse at the back (built in 1972) is used to store materials and products.
With the spacious space and convenient location, you can start a new shop or transform the house into a Uchiwa themed lodge to welcome oversea guests.


Beauty of the craftsmanship found only in a house with history.
