A Kyo-machiya sits serenely like a secret hideaway.
If you go deeper into the alley from the entrance, you will see the "Kabukimon" gate surrounded by greenery. With plants on both sides along the alleyway and the garden at the back of the building, all these open spaces bring light in and make you forget that this property is located in an alley.
The two Japanese-style rooms in the back by the garden have a luxurious view overlooking the lush green garden. In particular, the 8-mat sized Japanese-style room is characterized by its high ceiling and roomy space, and you can feel the atmosphere of a Kyo-machiya everywhere.
This splendid Kyo-machiya is located in a quiet residential area with the scenic Kamo River, cherry blossom spot Nakaragi-no-Michi, and the Kyoto Botanical Gardens nearby within walking distance.
It takes about 14 minutes from the Kitaoji Station (approx. 10-minute walk from the property) to Kyoto Station and about 10 minutes to Shijo Station by the Subway Karasuma Line, making it convenient for commuting to work and school or going out on holidays.
The neighborhood is a quiet residential area near the Kamo River (about 2 minutes on foot/150m), which is calm and rich in nature with many temples and shrines.
Check here for the outstanding scenic beauty of Kamo River in different seasons and photos of Ishii-jinja Shrine, which is about a 1-minute walk (50m) from the property.

Although the exterior walls and interior have been deteriorated in places due to aging, the appearance of Kyo-machiya remains well marked by some classical features such as the thick "Gorombo" beams on the second-floor ceiling, colored fittings from the past, and the antique patterned glasses, etc. All these are materials that are no longer obtainable nowadays.
While many people tend to chase for modern and up-to-date lifestyles by tearing old buildings down, with certain restorations, this Kyo-machiya property inherited from the past can bring you a fruitful life with the taste and warmth of good old things.
With its numbers of rooms and the two entrances, you can consider it as a house for a two-generation family or a store combining with a residence.
And for those who are looking for a second house base in Kyoto, those who want to move to a place near nature with good convenience from the station, and those who would like to enjoy their second life after retirement, how about a home where you can enjoy the uniqueness of Kyoto and a lifestyle following your own pace?
※Ceiling and walls on the second floor have been partially dismantled.
