13 min to Kyoto station

7 min to Shichijo station

An unrenovated Kyo-machiya above the Kawaramachi Shichijo intersection.

Approx. 13 min walk from JR Kyoto station main gate.

While facing Kawaramachi Street, one of Kyoto's main streets, you are also close to nature such as the Takase River, Kamogawa River and the terrains in Higashiyama.

On the west side of the property is the “Shoseien” (about 5 min walk), a quayside spring garden that is an enclave of Higashi Honganji Temple. On the east side of the property flows through the Takase River where unique craft beer bars and cafes gather. If you go further to the east pass the Kamogawa river, you will find cultural and historical areas such as “Kyoto National Museum" or "Sanjusangendo” temple.

It makes a perfect location as a base for sightseeing around Kyoto and Osaka. How about using it as a second house or a guest house with some renovation?
