哲学の道西側の町家_外観

Located in "Shishigatani" at the foot of Higashiyama,
here is a Kyo-machiya sits next to the walking trail "Philosopher's Path" (about 2-minute walk/120m)
that favors by many philosophers and novelists.

The building has been carefully preserved since the Taisho era.
With windows overlooking the impressive green gardens,
the interior of this property is simple and designed with the beauty of nature in mind.
Despite having a 100-year history,
its design is still applicable to the present day with a deep taste of aged beauty.

From the gloss of woodworks that had long been used to the plaster wall with warm color
and the antique fittings and switches inherited from the past,
this is a residence where you can feel the warmth and timeless beauty of a long history.

お庭

The peaceful tatami room sitting in a slight darkness, like a painting through the glass. The green reflected in the darkness fills the room with calm air.

The Philosopher's Path is nearby; petals of cherry blossoms from the canal in Spring and maple leaves at Fall may reach the garden with the wind.
When summer comes, fireflies may fly in and rest their wings on the shoji screen of the window too!

The upper part of the earthen floor is a double-height ceiling with the wooden framework called "Juntosanbeki", where countless large beams can be seen.

The entrance is beautifully colored by the moss in the front garden covered with stepping stones.
Covered by the cedar wood board, its unique design with no windows facing the road, was created in consideration as a screen from the sight of the passers-by and the sunlight.
The property is designed by taking the advantage of the shape of the land site, such as taking in light and wind from the north and south windows facing the gardens, and makes you feel the ingenuity inherited from the past that is not inferior to the present age.
