The original name of the inn is said to have been a color favored by Rikyu, a pioneer of Zen Buddhism.
The color is used as the conceptual color of the inn, and motifs related to the tea ceremony
and Zen Buddhism that Rikyu liked are placed throughout the inn.

Bamboo screen and lattice window matches naturally with the Rikyu-colored (greenish gray) Kyo-machiya. The small inu-yarai curved screen and the latticed windows used for ventilation and lighting are also crafted in fine detail.
A view of the tsuboniwa garden can be seen through the sliding glass doors without opening the windows. Although it is a living room, it is a calming space that makes you feel at peace.
The bathroom wall is decorated with cypress wood. A view of the tsuboniwa garden can be seen from the side window of the bathtub.
The kitchen is in harmony with the Japanese style living room. You can make a cup of tea or do some simple cooking here.
Sloped ceiling, playful round design windows and gentle wooden shelves add a gentle touch to the bedroom.
R-shaped entrance and the small shoji screens are lovely. This is a convenient space for women to get ready for the day. It can also be used as a study.。
Through the openings in the bamboo screen, you can sit by the handrail and watch the people walk through the streets of Kiyomizu.
The reading room by the entrance is located behind the lattice window. In summer, you can open the window to let the wind and light in.
This Kyo-machiya is located in the famous Higashiyama area with Kodai-ji temple and Kiyomizu temple in the vicinity, and the approach to these temples, "Ninen-zaka" and "Sannenzaka," are always crowded with tourists dressed in yukata and kimono, day and night.
