A refined Kyo-machiya in between Buddhist temples.
With Sennyuji on the East and Tofukuji on the West, it sits in the Higashiyama area with a long history of shrines and temples. It is where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of the city.
It is recommended to those who would like to live close to nature while enjoying elegant lifestyle inside a fully renovated Kyo-maachiya.
Illumination of dimmed light in a dignified Tatami room where straight lines overlap. At “Oku-zashiki” or back room where you can dine, you can sit down and listen to the sound of the bell, and look at the quaint garden through the snow shoji screen.
Modern tiled Kitchen
Kitchen counter with tiles and a built-in storage underneath. Comfortable cold and chic tiles with warm wooden storage form a perfect harmony.
The "Hikuburo" back in the days allowed smoke to escape from the kitchen. It also plays a role in bringing light and wind to the kitchen. In addition, you can look down to the kitchen from the second floor.
“Boundaries” separated by height
The second floor is characterized by a small rise that is designed to have a higher floor level. Although it is a continuation of the corridor, it can be used as an independent room due to the level difference.
Furthermore, it shares the atrium space with the 1st floor kitchen, and is a place where you can spend time feeling the presence of people living together, and the charm of the ambiguous border, which is a part of Japanese aesthetic.
Carefully selected and arranged tiles
Other than the wooden furnitures usually seen in a Kyo-machiya, tiles were carefully selected to create a more sophisticated space. We chose uneven tiles with good drainage around the kitchen and bathroom hoping to pursuit functionality as well as design.
Lighting that makes shadows appear beautifully
From dimmed light to the foreign retro lamps. The seemingly cute lighting creates a faint shadow in the Tatami room. It is also a design that expresses Japanese aesthetic.
An original Kyo-machiya renovation by Hachise
The first floor has been remodeled according to the modern lifestyle without changing the basic structure of a Kyo-machiya.
The second floor has a unique design that incorporates creative elements, such as a small rise floor and an arabesque pattern carpet.
Culturally rich area above Tofukuji temple
On the east side of Kamogawa river, in the neighborhood of JR / Keihan “Tofukuji Station”, there are the “Tofuku-ji”, where people visit the beauty of autumn leaves, and the “Senjyo-ji” temple, which is related to the imperial family, and other cultural assets of Kyoto.
Many of Kyoto's most famous sights such as the “Kyoto National Museum” that promotes display and preservation, “Sanjusangen-do”, known for its 1001 Senju Kannon statues, and “Chikuin-in”, famous for its garden and barrier paintings. It is an attractive area where you can enjoy sightseeing walks on foot.
Easy access to Kyoto and Osaka station.
