A fully renovated Kyo-machiya that is only 10 min bike away from Kyoto station.

A house in the Higashiyama Ward not too far away from downtown Kyoto. A chic front door (left) where small cars can be parked, and the back entrance (right) which shows the original appearance of the Kyo-machiya.。

On the right hand side after entering the entrance is a petite Tatami room. It feels like a completely different world when you close the sliding door. Immerse yourself in your own little world, and feel calm and peace while being lit by the soft light coming in through the ground window.

There is a chic library-like hall between the entrance and the living room. While looking for the book you want to read, you can enjoy the lush Tsuboniwa garden view in the gap between the shelves.

At the end of the hall, a spacious 12 mats wide living room awaits. The whole family can sit around the big dining table and enjoy, or you can also choose to lie by the window side and have a relaxing time alone.

The main character of this house, Tsuboniwa garden, shows various expressions depending on the season, time and angle. On a refreshing early autumn day, the turf reflected in the open glass window is magnificent. The Tsuboniwa garden seen from the ground window of the Tatami room allows you to feel the Wabi Sabi of Japanese culture.

Challenge on making new dishes in the kitchen, concentrate on reading and working on your computer. Since the kitchen and living room can be divided into separate spaces, the space can be customized according to the situation.

The rooms on the second floor are simple and easy to use. They can be used as separate rooms with a partition or as a large bedroom. When you open the window facing the west, the clear blue sky is ideal for refreshing your mood.


With the car parking space (for small cars only), taking children out on the weekends will be easy. Floor heating is installed in the living room, so you can spend a comfortable time in the cold winter. The balcony, front parking space and back alley are all ideal places for kids to enjoy outdoors.

Because it is close to the mountain, you can fully enjoy the changing seasons of Higashiyama. The Imakumano area where you can feel the arrival of the season as quickly as possible. Sanjusangendo, Chishakuin and Kyoto National Museum are within walking distance. You can enjoy living in contact with nature, history and culture.
