This unrenovated Kyo-machiya sits close to the Shirakawa river where you get to enjoy the pleasant environment with fresh green and cool breeze in early summer. It is only 3 minutes on foot to the Philosopher's path with cherry blossoms in Spring and fireflies in Summer.
While it is also close to the world heritage site Ginkakuji temple, you can easily find supermarkets, drug stores, convenience stores within walking distance.
Inside the house are plenty of old-fashioned but attractive features such as the wooden lattice and patterned polished glass window. It's easy to imagine ways to renovated this Kyo-machiya while keeping most of the old fashioned features.
Why not take this opportunity to enjoy a comfortable lifestyle on the east side of Kyoto?
