This property is located in Kyoto’s famous Kamishichiken area, at the foot of the Kitano Tenmangu Shrine, affectionately known as "Tenjin-san". The typical Kyoto-like historic location is not only a sightseeing spot favored by tourists, but also a place where you can feel the local life.
The building is built on a neat corner with plenty of attractions nearby, from popular shops to famous hidden treasures known only to those in the know, making it a perfect location for opening all manner of businesses including cafes, restaurants and guest accommodation.
All plumbing & electrics have been refurbished for safer use. The owner completely renovated with particular attention to repairing or replacing any worn out parts, while keeping as much of the original features such as characteristic clay walls lined with century old newspapers, wooden doors, and original granite stones in the earthen floor amongst others.
Clay wall from the Meiji era
The clay walls of the cafe are preserved in a way that allows you to see the newspaper lining the walls dated from 100 years ago. Not something you usually see every day.
An elaborate use of British stained glass. The Art Deco design with its geometric and symbolic expression is simple yet sophisticated and elegant, and a perfect match with the Kyoto’s Machiya design.
Most of the cafe interior has vintage furniture imported from Australia. This is a space where you can enjoy the "aged beauty" with a clever mixture of Japanese and Western styles. (Furniture may be included in the sale by negotiation)
Bookshelf at the Hibukuro
Originally, a Hibukuro was a stairwell space that allowed the heat and smoke from cooking to escape. The boldly arranged bookshelves are filled with a wide variety of books lovingly collected over time by the owner. (Books may be included in the sale by negotiation)
This building style is known as "Tsushinikai" among the Kyo-machiyas, which were usually built during the Edo period and the Meiji era, characterized by its low road facing roof. Although the ceiling on the 2F looks low when viewed from the front, its height is still capable as a living space by removing the ceiling board.
This property is perfect for combining work and living, comprising 3 different functions: catering (cafe), a lodging facility, and a spacious, private residence.
Being a much sought-after corner building, which faces to both the south and the east, natural light and fresh air flood every area of the house.
Certainly, this is a perfect choice for those who want to open a restaurant by themselves. In addition, you may also consider not only renting out part of the building for added income, utilizing the remainder of the property as your own residence, second house, or office, but also using the entire building as a two/three generational house complete with a large professional kitchen. This is a rare property where flexible utilization can be considered depending on your various needs.
