North of Daitokuji Temple

This Kyo-machiya locates at the north/back of Daitokuji temple in a quiet residential area. You will be able to park a few bicycles in front of the house. As the Shin-omiya shopping street is only a few minutes walk away, in additional to some restaurants and supermarkets, life in this area should be both comfortable and convenient.

Kyo-machiya Features

Although there was no record on when this machiya was built, from the unique features such as the alcove, glass windows, and the exterior, this Kyo-machiya is expected to be built around the early Showa period.
