The Nishijin area is where Kyoto's weaving industry was developed and thrived. With the small temples and shrines that have been worshiped by the locals way back in the past, the old Kyoto atmosphere can still be felt in this area.

The front of this KyoMachiya is widely connected to the alley, and in the center of the house was where the weaving factory operated. This building has been passed on carefully from its past residents.

While renovation is required, you can transform the ex-weaving room into a modern room with double height ceiling while keeping the traditional Japanese flavor in other parts of the house. Why not challenge yourself to make this KyoMachiya a charming new home with rich culture and history.



Starting with Funaoka Onsen, Kuramachi St. has plenty of stylish local shops and cafe that
attracts people who want something different from the major tourist spots in Kyoto.
There are also plenty of bakeries in this area, which may not be a surprise as
Kyoto is the prefecture in Japan that consumes the most bread.
