Listen to the whispers of trees and live with nature
2 minutes walk from the Philosopher’s Path
"I want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the city and spend time with nature ..."
"I'm tired of living in an urban area because I'm worried about infectious diseases."
Did either one of these ideas ever come to your mind?
While listening to the whispers of the trees in the Higashiyama mountain range,
at spring, spend a peaceful afternoon beside the pathway where the cherry blossom trees explode with color;
in summer, breathe in the cool shade of trees and the air of the forest;
in autumn, feel the sentimental ambience of falling leaves and
when winter comes, immerse yourself into the frosty and solemn air.
Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, and get moved by the change of seasons.
How wonderful would it be if we could live a life that enriches such sensibilities?
Introducing a house that fulfills your wishes to live quietly with nature.
The "Okunoma" inner room, which reflects the beauty of the subdued shadows of Japan, is in a humble design without over-decorations. Daylight from the garden softly created a calming space. You can remodel the tatami room and remake the garden adding extra Japanese features to enhance the taste.
A compact floor plan with a slightly sizable garden
The light from the south and the peaceful greenery of the Higashiyama mountain range blends the natural environment into your home. Recommended as a base for remote work and as a second house in Kyoto.
