A non-renovated Kyo-machiya suitable for couples or family with children.
Even without renovation, this Kyo-machiya is relatively furnished with traditional style glass windows, old fixtures, Tatami room floors, bathroom tiles, all being done without taking away the original atmosphere of the house. Keep the attractive and unique features of a Kyo-machiya, and then enjoy renovating this place into your ideal home or vacation house.
This property is currently used as a guest house, so if you wish to continue the operation you will need to re-apply for a new hotel business license.
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.
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.
There are two Tatami rooms beside the entrance where you can welcome in guests. Currently it is being used as a reception for the guest house as well as a studying room.
- Design your own garden and enjoy some peace and quiet on the wooden deck.
Though renovation is needed, the balcony which faces the East allow plenty of sunlight from the morning.
