A kyo-machiya within a residential area where modern apartments and traditional Kyoto townhouses are blended together.

It is located within walking distance of subway Karasuma line, supermarkets and hospitals. With only 2 minutes walk away from Kamogawa riverbed, you can fully enjoy the nature that Kyoto offers.


From the Kamogawa riverbed is where you can see Mt. Daimonji in the distance.


Kamogawa riverbed is a place for local residents to relax and enjoy row of cherry blossom trees swaying in the spring haze.


The property locates in a calm residential area dotted with elegant Japanese houses and Kyo-machiya.

This Kyo-machiya was built by shrine carpenters in the early Showa era. You can feel the particularity and politeness of the material, decoration and layout.

Its owners loved the special design and history of this house for generations, and they had taken care of this house by fixing and refurbishing old parts little by little. Even without any major renovations, one can move into this property and start a new life immediately.


Live in comfort with nature and history

While preserving the designs, the kitchen has been renovated into a modern kitchen, and floor heating has been installed for the cold winter. The beauty of the materials and design, such as the Tatami room on the second floor, has been well preserved.



2 minutes walk to the Kamogawa river

Cherry blossoms are in full glory in the spring, lush green leaves whisper in the summer, autumn leaves dance in the fall, and the clear air in the winter. This property near Kamogawa river is a perfect location to stay away from the hustle and bustle of downtown and feel the nature quietly. Daily walks for families are likely to be fun.
