Away from the hustle and bustle of the city,
and enjoy the nature in Kita ward of Kyoto.

A renovated Kyo-machiya in a quiet residential area of Kita ward, Kyoto. Family friendly locations such as the Kyoto Botanical Garden where you can feel the nature of each season, the riverbed of Kamogawa river, and the Omiya Traffic Park with go-karts for children (※with charges) are all within walking distance from the property.

A house where kids get to run around freely,
and where family and friends can gather.

It's not easy taking care of small children, but this home was renovated and tailored to the life with children. The spacious grass garden, wooden deck, and the warm dining and living room space. Somehow it feels like the house has some magical power that minor scratches and dirt will not be of concerns for the mom and dad.


Enjoy family time at the garden on a cool summer evening.

Shin-Omiya Shopping streetexternal link

Historical shopping street with new approaches.

A shopping street that started in the 1950s that was once so bustling that airplanes were dropping leaflets from above when there was a bargain sale. Recently, young people who open unique shops such as blacksmiths, chocolatiers, bakeries, western confectioneries and cafes brought new energy to the area. It is also a place of relaxation for the local community.
