Murasakino area in the Kita ward is a quiet residential area without tall building. As many kyo-machiyas remain in this area, the town scape is somewhat retro and nostalgic. South of the property you can find unique shop and cafes renovated from public bath houses, selected old bookstores, or even a Michelin-one-star soba shop. If you go further to the north, fashionable cafes and bakery shops are available along the Kitayama street.

Daitokuji Temple
(6 min walk/430m)

It is a vast site where groups of small temples “Tachu” gather. One of the many Tachu, Ōbai-in is open for a limited time in autumn where you can also enjoy the beautiful autumn leaves. There are other areas where you can enter for free, such as the bamboo forest that makes you feel the nature uniquely to Kyoto.



The first impression you will get is "A nostalgic old house".

It was built in 1980 with an accented exterior tile. When you enter the house, you will be surprised at the good condition of the building despite its age. For modern living, it's a good idea to replace the plumbing facilities, and you can leave the retro and lovely features such as the tiles in the bathroom.

It is a recommended property for couples who want to raise their children close to nature.
