Savour the aged beauty. Indulge in the traditional atmosphere

Standing out in a quiet residential area,
there is a splendid house with a hip-and-gable roof.

The first thing you will notice at the entrance
is a distinctive bell-shaped window called "Katoumado".
Continued with the deep-colored corridor beyond
with a nostalgic atmosphere
leading to the retro-style tiled bathroom.

Further up the stairs
is the round "Shitajimado" window,
like the moon is floating above the staircase.
While enjoying the four seasons at the Tatami room,
I couldn't help but sigh
for the breath-taking aged yet elegant beauty.

A traditional Japanese house.


Plenty of space is secured for a study or guest room with its 5 rooms in this property. The small room on the second floor can be used as a workspace for remote work too.

The site area is in a quadrangular shape while the property itself is surrounded by a large garden which is divided into front and back yard. You can use it for multiple purposes such as a place to enjoy home gardening or even grow your own vegetables. The front yard confronting the road is surrounded by hedges that ensure a certain degree of privacy but without feeling oppressive.

A faucet pole is set in front of the storeroom by the entrance, and with the side door next to the kitchen you can directly get to the yard for garden work without going through the inner part of the house.

There are also two large sheds on the premises, allowing storage for daily necessities such as gardening supplies and cleaning tools, as well as outdoor goods and contingency supplies.

Area Map

Located in an area once called "Kinukasa Village", it was popular for constructing villas because of the gentle slopes and good drainage of this vast site. Among them, the neighborhood around this property was especially favored by many painters who were attracted to the environment where they could get a peaceful scenery with the borrowed landscape of Mt. Kitayama.
The peacefulness remains the same nowadays, and you can enjoy the summer tradition of Kyoto - Gozan-no-Okuribi with the "Hidari-Daimonji" (in the character of "large") on Mt. Kinugasa.

In addition to the historical scenery and tourist attractions such as shrines and temples, there are also supermarkets and convenience stores, making it convenient for daily shopping. Drug stores and banks can also be found around the nearest station, Kitano-Hakubaicho station.
