West of the Silver Pavilion
Live in harmony with nature and history.
A newly built 2 storey villa that is hidden in a rare location, about a 3-minute walk (240m) to the Silver Pavilion (Ginkakuji Temple). It is an area surrounded by the majestic mountain range of Higashiyama, where you can enjoy the sights of Kyoto.
In the vicinity of the property is the “Hakusasonso”, a memorial hall of modern Japanese painter “Hashimoto Kansetsu” in the Taisho and Showa period, “Mt. Yoshida” which has a long-established Yoshida Shrine, and of course the famous "Philosopher's Path" is also within walking distance.
This property is recommended for families looking for vacation houses, and parents with children that attend in universities of Kyoto.
An architecture studio based in the northern part of Kyoto city. Its work on interior design, renovation, installation, artwork, anything related with “space creation” can be found within Japan and around the world.
On the 1st floor is where you can find a sophisticated space with concrete. The garden that changes its appearance with the four seasons makes it seem as if you are living in nature. From the inner terrace of the 2nd floor, you can enjoy your own private view of the Philosopher's Path.
World Heritage Silver Pavilion（Jishoji Temple）
The official name is called Jishoji Ginkaku. The 8th Muromachi Shogunate "Ashikaga Yoshimasa" built it as a mountain villa and later became a temple. It is famous worldwide as a temple that embodies the world of wabi-sabi. It is a temple with natural and subtle appearance that allows you to feel the contrast from the extravagant appearance of “Rokuonji Kinkaku” built by Ashikaga Yoshimasa's grandfather.
Hakusasonso Hashimotokansetsu Garden & Museum
A garden villa built by Hashimoto Kansetsu, a representative of modern Japanese painting from the Taisho to Showa periods. The harmonious landscape of the gardener, where his aesthetics are reflected everywhere, is just a piece of art drawn on the land. Experience the writer's Utopia drawn on a vast site of approximately 10,000 square meters.
The Philosopher's Path leads to Ginkakuji temple, and it is an area where many writers lived in the Meiji period. It is a small path that allows you to take a walk slowly while feeling the cherry blossoms in spring, the fresh greens and fireflies of the summer, autumn leaves, the quietness of the winter.
