Three Storey Steel House with Soothing Breeze



About a 3-minute walk to the Keifuku Electric Railway (Randen) Kitano Line "Tokiwa Station".

Near the station, there is Marutamachi Street where supermarkets such as "Matsumoto Shinmarutamachi Store", "Gyomu Super Uzumasa Store", and drug stores can be found, making it a convenient location for daily life. Besides daily shopping, there are also local stores from the past around the station, which is like an old-town area.

This property is located in a quiet residential area just off the Tokiwa Station. On sunny days you can see the clear blue sky and overlooking refreshing greenery on the 3rd floor.
How about a stroll at Arashiyama on holidays? The well-known Arashiyama area is famous for attractions such as Tenryuji Temple and Togetsu-kyo Bridge, which are listed as one of the World Heritage Sites, and you can enjoy the scenery of mountains around Sagano too. The Hirosawa Pond, which has long been famous as a perfect place for moon viewing, is also in the neighborhood.
Here, you can enjoy the seasonal scenery with cherry blossoms in spring, fresh green in summer, red foliage in autumn, and snowy panorama in winter.


The origin of Tokiwa

"It has to be Sagano when speaking of field."
This is a passage from a classic essay, "The Pillow Book", written by the Heian period writer Sei Shonagon (around 966 to 1025).
Since the Heian period, Saga and its eastern corner, Tokiwano, has been a peaceful place loved by many.
The place-name "Tokiwa" is said to be derived from the fact that the Prince of Emperor Saga, Minamoto no Tokiwa (812-854), who is also the Minister of the Left, set up a mountain cottage in this area.


On the 1st floor, there is a parking lot with a carport, bathroom and toilet while on the 2nd floor a kitchen with a significant presence is sandwiched between the dining area and the living room. The 3rd floor is a one-floor Western-style room with tatami space (and a storage space under it). Both the 2nd and 3rd floors have windows on the north and south sides, and brightness can be ensured even when the curtains are closed on the 3rd floor.
Storages is also another significant feature of this house. With 2 walk-in closets and hidden storages under the bench and the tatami space, plenty of storage space is secured throughout the house.

When the weather is nice, you can lay back by putting a chair on the balcony on the north side of the 3rd floor. Currently the 3rd floor is a one-floor space, but you can also add fittings and partitions and divide the area into private rooms

The building has been carefully maintained and used, and it is a residence filled with the passion of the previous owner. The retro mosaic tiles used around the washroom are Mrs's favorite.


Currently it is used for solely residential purposes, but it can also be used as a residence/office perfect for couples who would like to work comfortably at home.
With the surrounding rich nature and the relaxing environment, this is recommended for those who want to start a chilling life here in a peaceful atmosphere.

Renovation history: All water facilities (kitchen, bathroom, washbasin, toilet) were renewed in 2010, wall repair on the 3rd floor in 2018, floor replacement on the north side on the 3rd floor in 2020, and waterproof painting on the balconies of the 2nd and 3rd floors.
